The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Female Solo Songs – Other Female Singers and Lata Mangeshkar [5]

Hamida Bano

Hamida Bano is also a member of Hindi Film World’s Lahore club, who had to remain contended with an ‘also ran’ tag in her career. One can see many more of the songs to her crdit in HFGK for 1947, but YT links to all these songs have not yet been established.

Champakali Hai Udaas, Bhanwara Na Jaye Paas – Chhin Le Azadi – Hansraj Behl – Pandit Indra

Hamara Master Khuda Kare Beemar Ho Jae – Dekhojee – Sabir Hussain – Wali Sahab

Hum To Barabaad Hue Ab To Koi Abaad Rahe – Kaun Hamara – Bulo C Rani –

Ham Tumhare Tum Hamare Aao Kare Pyar – Lakon Mein Ek – Hans Raj Behl – Pandit Indra

Tu Kahan Chhupa Bhagwan, Tera Milata Nahi Nishan – Lakon Mein Ek – Hans Raj Behl – Pandit Indra

Beenapani Mukherjee

Lakho Ke Bol Sahe, Sanwariya Tere Liye Maine – Leela – C Ramchandra – G S Nepali

Naian Jal Bhar Aaye – Samrat Ashok – Gyan Dutt – Shams Lakhanavi

Sitara Devi

HFGK mentiones Sitara as the singer for these solo songs. I have there fore assumed that she is Sitara Devi( in any case different than Sitara(Kanpuri)).

Bhoole Se Dil Tujhe Na Bhulaye To Kya Karoon – Amar Asha – Shanti Kumar – Qabil Amrutsari

Soz –e-Gam Deke Mujhe Usne Ye Irshad Kiya – Shahzadi – S K Pal –

Lata Mangeshkar:

It is not for long that Lata Mageshkar will have more than three times the song then most of the other female singers. In fact, we have found it necessary to run the micro view of Hindi Film Songs right from year 1948 onwards werein it is almost Lata Mangeshkar on side and other playback singers on the other.

Ek Naye Rang Mein – Aap Ki Sewa Mein – Datta Davjekar – Mahipal

Pa Lagu Kar Jori Re – Aap Ki Sewa Mein – Datta Davjekar – Mahipal

Ab Kaun Sunega Mere Man Ki Baat – Aap Ki Sewa Mein – Datta Davjekar – Mahipal

Thus ends our rather protracted micro view of solo songs of the female singers for 1947.  However, one will find several solo songs in HFGK that do not appear here. These are the songs that would essentaially belong to quite and unknown singer (as far as I am concerned) and number of songs ) . Moreover the numbers also may either be very insignificant or the YT links of these songs are not available.

In our next episode I plan to sum up My Top Female Solo Songs for 1947.

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.
