The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Geeta Roy [3]

The third part of the solo songs of Geeta Roy for 1948 follows the same pattern as the one observed in earlier part [1] and [2], i.e. I do not have any song that I recollect ever having heard earlier. The songs in this part certainly bear the trade mark Geeta Roy singing. I am so happy that I did get to listen to these songs.

Hum Bhi Jiye Tum Bhi – Meri Bhabhi – R A Paijankar – Gulshan Jalalabadi

Ro Ro Ke Sunate Hain Jo Ham Apana Fasana – Meri Kahani – Datta Koregaonkar – Zia Sarhadi

Nazar Se Mili Hai Nazar Pahle-Pahle – Toote Tare – Shaukat Ali (Nashad)

Armaan Bhare Dil Ko – Toote Tare – Shaukat Ali Nashad

I have not been able to locate soft links to these songs:

We will take up Solo Songs of Shamshad Begum in our next episodes of the current The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY

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.

Ashokji,
Most of us would be in the same boat – not having heard these songs earlier. That is not such a surprise, but the main issue is whether these songs linger in our memory and whether these give a feeling of making a great discovery. That is where Lata Mangeshkar scores over others. There are dozens of her absolute gems I have discovered in recent years.

In my view, the lingering of Lata songs into our mind can be attributed to her overwhelming presence over the whole of the golden era. That made her songs of these initial players getting more space as the then equally popular songs of the other female singers.
More you remain in contact with someone more intimate you are likely to be as compared to someone equally known but in lesser degree of the contact.
I do not intend to take way any merit of Lata’s songs, but trying to explore some rational basis of understanding our behavior process as compared to some one who was always brought up on the vintage era singers.
