In the next couple of episodes, we ill take up micro-view of solo songs of those female singers who have got one, or at best two, films in in 1946. Even from these very limited number of songs, the actual number of songs that we would get to listen to has further reduced, because the digital versions of these songs do not seem to be available on net.

Kisi Se Meri Preet Lagi, Ab Kya Karoon – Aath Din – S D Burman – G S Nepali

Solo Songs of Neena

Neena was the lead actress against Prithvi Raj Kapoor in this film – a name that I hear from the first time, because of my very limited knowledge of the films and songs of this era of the Hindi film songs.

Bigadi Meri Bana De, Man Ko Daranewale – Prithviraj-Samyukta – S K Pal – Josh Malihabadi

Kya Jaane Man Kya Kaheta Hai – Prithviraj-Samyukta – S K Pal – Josh Malihabadi

YT shows Sitara Kanpuri as the singer.

Sundar Sapna Ban Ke Aali Nayanan Mein Kaun Samaya – Prithviraj-Samyukta – S K Pal – Akhtar Ul Imaan

We will take up Micro View of some more Other Female Singers – like Beenapani Mukherjee, Shushila Rani, Jayshree, Parul Ghosh, Geeta Roy – for the year 1946 in our next episode.



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.

  1. From the film ‘Man Ki Jeet’ (1944) onward, Sitara Bai Kanpuri sang for Neena in all her films. She was under exclusive contract with Shalimar Studio (Owner was producer-director W Z Ahmed) to sing only for Neena. However, on the gramophone records, the name of the singer was given as Neena. So all the songs of Neena in ‘Prithviraj Sanyukta’ (1946) was sung by Sitara Bai Kanpuri.
