Solo songs of Leela Sawant

Leela Sawant has three solo songs in Kaliyan, but only one seems to be available on YT.

Le Aate BaharoN Ko, Raja Loot Liya, – Kaliyan – Kidar Sharma – G A Chisti

Other than these female solo songs for the year 1944, Kadambari has 6 solos and 2 chorus songs of Shanta Apte, but only one song seems to be available on YT. That one – Mere janam maran ke saathi chalo chita par so jaye – is covered in Memorable Songs of 1944, and one solo of Utapala SenJal Jane Do Is Duniya Ko – and  Main In PhooloN Ke Sang DoluN Re  by Vimla in Meri Bahen, too, are covered in Memorable Songs of 1944.

It is quite likely that, because of hardly knowledge of the Songs of 1944, during my search, I may have missed a few more solo songs of female singers. Recognizing this short coming, I conclude the present Micro View of (Best) Solo Songs of Female Singers for the year 1944 @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,
You are doing intensive research on the songs of vintage years. Congratulations. I have observations about identification of singers in two songs:
1. Ram kare kahin naina na uljhe: As per HFGK you have mentioned Tara. It sounds like Rajkumari, and she has done some good mudras for Anil Biswas. I remember on Sa Re Ga Ma when she was asked to sing a song, this was one. I must have read at some place too, I have corrected in my copy of HFGK. You may like to confirm on your own, Mr Harish Raghuvanshi may help.
2. Main in phoolon sang dolun re – I have read some assertion that it is Utpala Sen.

Incidentally both the songs are outstanding.

Dear AKji,

Thanks for pointing out the possible grey area.

I too had noted that you too have taken Utpala Sen as singer for Main in phoolon sang dolun re in the listing of Memorable Songs of the Year.

In so far as song of these years is concerned, I have next to zero knowledge. So, I have adopted a uniform base of HFGK. Even when YT up-loaders, and those who upload songs of this period certainly will have some basis to u=identify the singer, mention different names, I invariably mention what HFGK has to say on the matter.

My main aim remains to listen to songs of these years under the stimulus of this project, and try to widen up my base of songs that I hear, and if possible, inculcate taste so as to appreciate that music.

On the second count, my listening remains limited to two, or at best three, cycles of listening, and hence no way near developing the taste.
