In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging!
One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems.
So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation.
At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships.
I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator.
And yet,
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Your exhaustive investigation is discovering many nice songs which I had not included in my list of the Memorable Songs of 1949.

There seems to be a minor error in the MD of Chakori. I think it should be Hansraj Bahal.

I also noticed that several songs have the word “kahana” in them, which is the current post on my blog, and which has generated a deluge of additions. Not every song fits my criteria that the focus should be on “saying”. But in your list above #2, Unse hum kuchh kahte kahte rah gaye is a perfect “kahna” song.

Yes, music director of Chakori is Hansraj Behl, It is an error from maligning the scratch notes in the final version. Thanks for pointing out.
The basic purpose of this exercise IS to explore what has remained hidden over the layers of memory or unknowns. I enjoy listening to many songs that I would otherwise have not heard at all.
In the course of this exercise, I, too, have been noticing songs that have kahena as verb in the mukhda. However, all kahena verbs do not necessarily translate into the emphasis of the process of kahena, which is the core filter that you would like to exercise. So, whenever, I notice such song, I mentally try to evaluate its conformance and then accept or reject . But works out to be quite interesting workout..
