The Micro View of Songs of 1943 – Female Solo Songs – Noor Jehan, Suraiya, Khursheed

Solo songs of Noor Jehan

Whereas Noor Jehan’s two solo songs from Duhai and three (including a twin song) from Nadan could not be located on YT, Dil Dun Ki Naa Dun and Roshni Apni Umangon Ki Mitakar Chal Diye from Nadan are covered in Memorable Songs of 1943..

Ab To Nahin Duniya Mein Kahin Apana Thikana – Nadan – Jiya Sarhadi – Datta Koregaonkar

Ek Anokha Gam Ek Anokhi Musibat Ho Gayi – Nadan – Jiya Sarhadi – Datta Koregaonkar

Jinhein Karana Tha Dil Abaad Apana Woh Barbaad Hai – Naukar – Akhtar Sherani – Rafiq Ghazanvi

Solo Songs of Suraiya

Ek Tu Ho Ek Main HuN Aur Nadi Ka Kinara Ho from Kanoon, and Aa More Saaanwre Sainya Mora Jiya Lahraye  and Mori Gali More Raja, Mori Kasam Aa Ja from Sanjog are covered in Memorable Songs of 1943.

It is interesting to note that Naushad has used Suraiya as playback for Mehtab in Kanoon and Sanjog for the year. It may sound even more interesting now, but Suraiya was just 13 years old then and Mehtab was on 17 or 18.!

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.
