The Micro View of Best Songs of 1946 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Naseem Akhtar, Paro Devi

Solo Songs of Naseem Akhtar

To those who have fair knowledge of the history of the vintage era of Hind Films, Naseem Akhtar was not an unknown name. I do not have sufficient knowledge about her career. For the year 1946, we not only have some of the then then known solo songs of Naseem Akhtar from ‘Keemat’  and Shajehan but also from three other films which add to the bonus of getting to know the voice of Naseem Akhtar.

Chand Ko Gale Lagaye Badarwa – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Hamse Khush Hai Zamana – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Jeeta Hai Va Marata Hai Koi, Tune Na Jana, Aye Bhulanewale – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Man Pagle Swapna Dikhaye, Man Jhoothe Dip Jalaye – Keemat – Naushad Ali – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Bolo Bolo Ji Bhagwan, Kaisi Rachai Tune Maya – Maa Baap Ki Laaj – Alla Rakha Quraishi

Solo Songs of Paro Devi

1946 is the debut year of Paro Devi, with S D Burman’s debut film Shikari. One songs from this film does not seem to have a soft YT link available. The other film ‘Dhanwan’ also may have more than one song which is documeneted on YT.

Tere Gam Se Mil Raha Hai, Mujhe Har Tarag Sahara – Dhanwan – Shanti Kumar – Behjad Lakhnavi

Jab Ghar Mein Lagi Aag, Sabhi Banshi Bajae – Shikari – S D Burman – G S Nepali

HFGK records tow versions of this song, one solo and one with chorus. The clip that is presented here includes both these versions.

Chhupo Chhupo O Daranewalo – Shikari – S D Burman – G S Nepali

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.
