The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Geeta Roy [2]

We continue the micro-view of Solo Songs of Geeta Roy in the second leg of Solo Songs of Female Playbacksingers for 1948. I had not been to classify any song in the Part 1 of Solo Songs of Geeta Roy as “Popular Song’. Almost the same pattern seems to emerge in this part as well, with one exception.

These songs belong to film Gunsundari, which was simultaneously made in Gujarti too. And the equivalent Gujari songs of the ones that have been presented here is the cause for that exception. I had EP record of these Gujarati songs purchased in 70s, and then when the age of internet dawned, I had located their Hindi Versions.

Nandiya Maare Boli Ke Baan, Balam Main Tumse Na Bolun – Gunsundari – Avinash Vyas – Pt. Indra

Its Gujarati version – Aaj Mari Nandiya Mahenu Maaryun

Bhabhi O Bhabhi Badalo Thoda Thoda Rang

Its Gujarati version: Have Thoda Thoda Tame Thoda Thoda Thao Varnagi O Bhabhi Tame Thoda thoda Thao Varnagi

Khoye Hue Ko Dhoondhe Prabhu– Gunsundari – Bulo C Rani –Pt. Indra

And its Gujarti version – Khovaya Ne Kholawa Prabhu–  which was composed and written by Avinash Vyas

The two versions of the third song have been comopsed by two different composers as against the same composer in the case of the first two songs. That may perhaps totally different approach to the song  compostion of the two versions of the third song.

By ASHOK M VAISHNAV

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.

What an interesting article you have written, Ashokbhai! It is good to bring to light a film like Gunsundari (1948) in these days when the young Gujaratis tend to ignore the old Gujarati literature, film and music. Avinash Vyas pioneered “Gujarati sangeet” in those days.
Only an appreciator like you can mention Gyan Dutt and Bulo C rani! Who remembers such grwat composers today?
Great job, Ashok bhai!
