Now we have the long tail of the Micro view of the Solo Songs of Female Singers for the year 1943.

Here are some instances wherein only solo song of the respective solo singer was available on YT.

One solo song of K Sundarama –  Ek bewafa se pyar kiya, haye kya kiya – Duniya Diwani – Arshad Gujarati – K Narayana Rao is covered in Memorable Songs of 1943. Another song from this film – Ummid Nahi Vasl Se Dilshad Karenge  –  could not be located on YT.

These solo songs  –Manua kaahe phir tadapayeBinota Roy (lyrics Akhtar Chugtai), Albela mastana ek hans ka jodaSuprova Sarkar (lyrics Pt. Bhushan). Jeevan hai bekar bina tumhare – Unidentified female singer (Wapas, Music: RC Boral) are covered in Memorable Songs of 1943.

For several female singers, like Mumtaj Shanti (Badalti Duniya  – 3 songs), Shanta Apte (Duhai – 2 songs), Gauhar Sultana (Ishara – 3 songs), Ramola (Manchali 3 songs), Aarti Bose and Dina Gandhi – 1 solo each and one song with chorus that of Dina Gandhi (Paraya Dhan), are could not be traced.

And, there could be even some more which in spite of being known and being available on YT, may not have been noticed by me during this Micro Analysis of Solo Songs of 1943., mainly because of inadequate knowledge of the vintage era Hindi film songs.



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.
