Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music – Volume XI – January 2023 Edition

Welcome to January 2023 edition of XIth Volume of Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music.

Mehfil Mein Meri opens the New Year with A New Beginning………., with a new subject to one’s liking.

So True….. everything is done in full flow when you do it because you like it.

Indeed, a very good thought to begin the New Year.

SoY opens the new year account with ‘Parent’-‘Adult’-‘Child’ in songs has also an implicit message that every ‘adult’ should continue to strive to keep ‘child’ within remain live throughout the life cycle.

Presently we move on to our section on tributes and celebrations for the month –

Hrishikesh Mukherjee: Master of the Middle Path By Ratnottama Sengupta – A heartfelt piece as a centenary tribute to master filmmaker Hrishikesh Mukherjee.  – “This is one of the biggest ironies of life you know! That, as we grow in years, we grow more experienced, and richer in thought. But, the more we have to give to the world, the less equal, less capable our body gets…”

An exclusive pen and ink sketch of Hrishikesh Mukherjee by renowned artist Subrata Gangopadhyay

Pyarelal Santoshi: Jack of All Trades? – D P Ranagn pays tribute to polymath  Pyare Lal (P.L.) Santoshi

Behind the ScenesA Patchwork Quilt is just that – a patchwork of memories – of Paranjpye’s life, travels, plays, films – and the persons and personalities she met along the way.

November 2022 episode of Fading Memories, Unforgettable Songs takes up Jaidev: Brilliant, But Underrated, Composer:  1976 – 1977. Till now,

In 2018, we listened to his songs from the most successful films phase of 1955 to 1963.

In 2019, we listened to his more remembered songs from his less remembered films for 1964 to 1970,

in 2020, we listened to highly appreciated songs from the films that did not succeed in 1971,

In 2021, we recalled the songs that have faded out because the films flopped in 1972-1973, and

In 2022, we listened to his melodies form relatively not so known films for the years 1974 and 1975

Shailendra Sharma @ Golden Era of Bollywood has not posted the memorial tribute posts for the month till the writing for the present post.:

We now move on to posts on other subjects –

Contribution of Marathi Composers in Bollywood – Part I focuses on Snehal Bhatkar and  N Dutta, Part II on Dattaram, Sudhir Phadke and Vasant Desai and Part III on C Ramchandra.

Some Favorite Noor Jehan Film Songs Related to Lal Shahbaz Qalandar (and some other Qalandars too), the songs that come from the playback singing that she did in Pakistani films revolving around Lal Shahbaz Qalandar – or, in at least one or two cases, other Qalandars or saints in the Sufi tradition

Chal Ri Sajani Ab Kya Soche – Torn Between Two WorldsChal ri sajani ab kya soche is synonymous with the bidaai, the heart-breaking moment of departure when the bride steps across the threshold into an unknown world. Shirish Waghmode revisits this classic created by the SD Burman-Majrooh-Mukesh team and emoted in perfect sync by Suchitra Sen and Dev Anand along with Nasir Hussain (the father) and Achala Sachdev (the mother) for Raj Khosla’s Bombai Ka Babu.

Javed Akhtar on how cinema has changed: ‘Improved on the form though lost out on the context’ – A Book ExcerptNasreen Munni Kabir’s conversation book ‘Talking Life’ follows ‘Talking Films’ and ‘Talking Songs’.

Bhabhi Songs Part 1: With the DevarSome of the songs do not specifically have these kinship terms mentioned in the lyrics but the characters on screen play the role of the devar and bhabhi.

Ten of my favourite ‘two songs in one’, the songs where the two styles of the song alternate

The ‘Fusion Songs’ lists songs that has seamlessly interwoven two different styles of music in the song

Songs of Anger focuses on Hindi films songs with the words the words krodh (क्रोध)/ khafa (ख़फ़ा)/naaraaz (नाराज़)/gussa (ग़ुस्सा)

From Bollywood Rewind – Sampada Sharma – Indian Express’s weekly column:

Gulzar’s Parichay is a study of a dysfunctional family, but can we accept that ours is broken? – Gulzar’s Parichay is a humble reminder that love might be the solution to all problems but to actually solve those problems, loving each other is never sufficient.

Basu Chatterjee’s Khatta Meetha is India’s version of Modern Family, but with all the problematic tropes – Khatta Meetha might seem like a harmless, innocent film that is designed to appeal to the good-heartedness of a regular middle class family. But the movie casually ignores the tropes that it introduces and turns it into plot points.

Gulzar’s Achanak is what Akshay Kumar’s Rustom would have been if it didn’t take the easy way out – In Gulzar’s 1973 film Achanak, an army officer murders his cheating wife and her lover but then we start questioning how this relationship even disintegrated.

We have moved forward with Micro View of Duets for 1943, with Female-Female Duets(+) and Triads(+) to conclude with My Top Duets.

In continuation to our tradition of ending the post with a few songs of Mohammad Rafi, for the year, it is planned to recall the first duet Mohamad Rafi and Geeta Dutt had with a music director.

Jai Hind Ki Yeh KahaniyaN – Mansarovar (1946) – Deepak/IshwarChandra Kapoor – S N Tripathi

Sambhal Sambhal Ke Jaiyao O Banjare… Dilli Door Hai – Saajan (1947) – with Lalita Deolkar – Rammurti Chaturvedi – C Ramchandra

Phool Ko Le Baitha Khaar, Tera Kanto Se Hai Pyar – Chunariya (1948) – Mulkraj Bhakri – Hansraj Behl

Badla Hua Duniya Mein Ulfat Ka Fasana Hai – Hamari Manzil (1949) – Qamar Jalalabadi – Husnlal Bhagatram

I look forward to your inputs to enrich the contents of Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music.

Disclaimer: This monthly series of posts is my best-effort-based compilation of posts on Hindi film songs that I normally visit regularly. As I record my sincere thanks to all the original creators of these posts, any other posts that I have nor covered herein shows my lack of awareness of existence of such posts and is by no means any disrespect to their work. The copyrights to the posts, images and video clips remain the properties of the original creators

The Micro View of Songs of 1943 – The Duets – MY Top Duet Songs

The first observation that comes up after the Micro Review of the Duets is that number of duets is large for the year 1943 than the normal. This is corroborated the statistics provided in the overview post of SoY – Duets occupy a 31.44% (172 out of total 547 songs) share of the total songs for which the singers are identified in HFGK.

However, out of these 172 duet songs I have been able to capture only 60 odd songs in the Micro View and SoY has taken note of 27 duets in the Memorable Songs of 1943. This makes it just half of the total population, too less for any meaningful objective study! Moreover, of the 60 duets in the Micro View, two male singers have 8 (Arun Kumar) and 6 (G M Durrani) with two or three other singers having more than one duets. That would leave almost a third of the duets with only by any given pair of singers.

With so larger proportion of one duet per pair, our practice of covering such single songs in the list of the songs that I liked during the first listening would make the list too long, and yet so incomplete. So, I will dispense with this practice for the year.

The rest of the songs that I have chosen here again have my own subjective choice, thereby rendering the entire list as being too inadequate and subjective to be classifies ‘Top Duets’ for year. So, to order some semblance to the content of the present list, I have heavily drawn from the songs included in Special Songs and Best Ten Duets of 1943 from Best songs of 1943: Wrap Up 3

Here are MY choices of duets of 1943, in the alphabetical order of name of te film-

I, personally endorse the statement.

Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs – Volume XI – January 2023 Edition

Welcome to January 2023 edition of the XIth volume of Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs.

The theme for the XIth volume of our Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs is The Defining Trends of Quality Management – An Analytical Survey.

The aim for the present episode to overview the major trends already identified in the first two years of the present decade that are expected to shape the working philosophy for the quality management professionals. We shall look at some of the critical trends in a little more details in the subsequent months.

In order to identify the first step is carry out the trend analysis.

The trend analysis can be carried out from either the perspective of past data or from the potential changes that can take place in the future.

The real, lasting, and positive change to happen from implementation of CAPA[1] (from the past trends) or from the actions emending out of strategic planning – based on appropriate risj management approach -may require rethinking on the organization’s approach to trend analysis w. r. t. the quality management philosophy. These three questions provide a good beginning before taking up new trend analysis areas or tools/ modifying the existing ones.

  • What is the primary objective of the trend analysis? – One fundamental guiding principle is that a meaningful trend analysis should identify, evaluate and eliminate or prevent the issue that is having negative effect on product quality or customer expectations or to enable the organization to maintain / improve / sustain its competitive edge in the future.
  • What method to choose? – Primarily this driven by the basic purpose of the trend analysis exercise.
  • Is the data being analysed timely and adequate? – The timeliness of the data would mean that data neither should be outdated or should be irrelevant for the purpose and period of the trend analysis.

We now try to enlist major trends as identified in the presently documented literature:

    1. Changes in quality perceptions and approaches in terms of product and system quality as well as customer expectations.
    2. Evolving of management of risks under constantly changing business practices
    3. Knowledge sharing within and across the departments as well with outside stakeholders.
    4. Increasing significance of decision intelligence
    5. Improving the quality and reliability of the supply chain.
    6. Defining quality standards and related job roles in view of increasing need for seamless blending of technical and cross-functional skills.
    7. Increasing significance of integration of QEHS
    8. Increased importance of quality management approach with enterprise-level strategic planning

Apart from these generic issues, there are industry-sector specific trends analyses that can also help bring more generic issues under the radar.

The subject of trends analyses for very specific areas like  quality /environment /occupational and health and safety standards, geo-political-economical-social micro level and macro-level realignments, business performance measurement practices, micro- and macro-level racial and cultural changes etc.

There would be more trends identified in areas of Sustainability, Social relevance and Business continuity or Use of Quality 4.0 technology vis-à-vis Industry 4.0 technologies and IT technologies and the like.

We will now turn to our regular section -.

We now watch ASQ TV episode on –

We have taken up one article from Jim L. Smith’s Jim’s Gems:

  • Motives Are Important in Everything We Do – The success of our endeavors depends not so much on the endeavors themselves but, rather, on our motive for doing them. …. The key to success of The greatest writers, the greatest quality professionals, the greatest companies – the greatest men and women in all walks of life –is to be found in the fact they were motivated more, at least in the beginning, by what was important to them, what society needed, or by what they felt they had to do, rather than the thought of profit. This is the actual secret – the key to success… True success comes from working on things we really care about.

From the Editor’ (of Quality Magazine) – by Darryl Sealand, we have –

  • Knowledge is Power – From Sun Tzu to Chuck McGill – Why do we remember the past, and not the future? It is a perplexing question with no tangible, concrete answer. The question stems from, or at least often follows, Albert Einstein’s famous utterance, “Time is an illusion, although a stubbornly persistent one.”  …. We can even go as far as to replace the notion of memory with that of knowledge. Knowledge, after all, is facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education, i.e. the memories of that experience and education. So now the question becomes, “What if we had knowledge of the future?” … No matter your answer, the question points to the accuracy of an old, but particularly apt adage—Knowledge is power! ….As Sun Tzu states in the Art of War: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” … In the real world and on the “battlefields” of good business, particularly regarding the field of quality, knowledge lies in training. As contributing editor Genevieve Diesing writes, “As the pandemic and advances in technology impact the field, education and training remain paramount — especially for newcomers.”

I look forward to your views / comments / inputs to further enrich the theme of The Defining Trends of Quality Management – An Analytical Survey.

Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music – Volume X – December 2022 Edition

Welcome to December 2022 edition of Xth Volume of Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music.

Presently we move on to our section on tributes and celebrations for the month –

Afsana Likh Rahi Hoon – Remembering Umadevi – Born in 1926, little Uma would act in Ramleela (perhaps religious plays were permitted) and listen to the radio. She was fascinated by Hindi film songs and tried remembering the names of the singers and music directors. She was selected by Ustad Allah Rakha for a film, called Wamiq Azra. The film was released in 1946. Umadevi was finally a playback singer. Here is her very sweet NFS – Naina Ban Gaye Sawan Bhado – Madhukar Rajasthani– K Murari Sharma

Sharmila Tagore, the original oomph girl who challenged India’s conservative bent: ‘When I showed 2-piece bikini to the photographer…’Sampada Sharma – Hindi cinema has seen some graceful, effortless actors in Meena Kumari, Nargis, Waheeda Rehman but it can be safely said the versatility of Sharmila Tagore remains unmatched to this day. Tagore had the rare ability to play any role with complete ease but there was one thing that remained consistent across all her roles, and that was her graceful attitude.

The Assumed ‘Curse’ Of 30: How Gendered Ageism Impacts The Careers Of Indian WomenGulbahaar Kaur – Most individuals around the country questioned the future of an actress barely past a quarter of her life. Many young actresses of the 80’s and 90’s diminished from the big screen almost overnight due to the ‘curse’ of ageing. Beyond films this phenomenon remained consistent in other fields as well. Nevertheless, the situation seems to be changing gradually….

Continuing the series, the year-wise review of Lata Mangeshkar’s career, on Lata Mangeshkar, Mehfil Mein Teri revisits favourites from the year 1955 in 1955 – Lata Mangeshkar

Shatrughan Sinha was the first ‘angry young man’ but Amitabh Bachchan walked away with that titleSampada Sharma –  On Shatrughan Sinha’s birthday(9th December), here’s looking back at his professional rivalry with Amitabh Bachchan.

25 years of Chachi 420: Kamal Haasan film is a lesson on how not to mock a man playing a woman, and still be funnyArushi Jain – One of the most endearing things about the film where Haasan plays a middle-aged woman is that the character is never reduced to a caricature. The laughs never comes from misogyny or a perverted gaze. Chachi 420 works as a story, not as a gimmick.

November 2022 episode of Fading Memories, Unforgettable Songs takes up Mohammad Rafi’s First Duet Song With The Music Director: 2nd Five-Year Period: Year 1949 – Part II. Our journey began with the 1st Five-Year Period of 1944 to 1948 in the year 2021. We then commenced the 2nd Five-Year Period of 1949-1953 with Part I of the year 1949 in July 2022.

Shailendra Sharma @ Golden Era of Bollywood has not posted the memorial tribute posts for the month till the writing for the present post.

We now move on to posts on other subjects –

Bollywood’s Saffron-clad Sadhus Are Scheming Criminals Who Deserve Violent EndsJayasri Viswanathan – In Bollywood, Sadhu is not an ascetic who has renounced worldly attachments to attain moksha by practices guided by his guru. Onscreen, he is a scheming, lusty, political mastermind in cahoots with the tilak-dhaari antagonist.

When Kundan Shah told Saeed Mirza: ‘I hope I am not doomed to keep doing funny stuff’ – Saeed Mirza’s illustrated memoir – I Know the Psychology of Rats, Tulika Books – recounts his personal and professional bond with the ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ director.

Tempus Fugit Songs integral to the plot, that help the plot to thicken. Some songs show time passing and the attendant changes that occur with time.  The present list has songs wherein the time passes and there are attendant changes/developments that are shown.

Thinker’s Songs – thinking is so integral to mankind there are many songs that talk about thinking. Our film songs do not need to delve into philosophy or poetry, they are about problems at hand relating to love, heartbreak etc.

One Lady Sings, The Other Dances – On a few occasions, one of the characters sings while the other dances to its tune. Many songs have a male character singing and a female character dances.

Consecutive Melodies are exceptions where one song is immediately followed by another.

From Bollywood Rewind – Sampada Sharma – Indian Express’s weekly column:

We have moved forward with Micro View of Male-Female Duets for 1943, to Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5. SoY has concluded the series with Best songs of 1943: Wrap Up 4, whereat Khemchand Prakash is adjudged the Best Music Director of 1943 for Tansen

In continuation to our tradition of ending the post with a few songs of Mohammad Rafi that are relevant to the topics covered in the present episode, we had instituted a series wherein we listened to Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar’s duet with a music director for the first time in a Hindi film, every month for the year 2022.

We pay tribute to Dilip Kumar and Mohammad Rafi with some romantic- happy mood songs:

Preet Jata Ke Meet Bana Ke Bule Na Jana – Hulchal (1951) – with Lata Mangeshkar -Khumar Barabanqvi – Sajjad Hussain

Aashiq Hai Agar Hai Pyare – Insaniyat (1955) – Rajinder Krishna – C Ramchandra

Ishq Diwana Husn Bhi Ghayal Dono Taraf Ek Dard-e-Jigar Hai – Sungursh (1968) – Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad

Peete Peete Kabhi Kabahi Yun Jam Badalate Jaate HaiN – Bairag (1976) – Anand Bakshi – Kalyanji Anandji

Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs – Xth Volume – December 2022 Edition

Welcome to December 2022 edition of the Xth volume of Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs.

The theme for the Xth volume of our Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs is inspired from the editorial of the January 2022 special Issue of Prabuddha Bharata (The Awakened India) – Living a Meaningful Life in a Digital World.

For our present episode, we take up the article, What Remains by Srinivasan Raghuraman.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

The bottom line is that we have not been able to meet in person, talk in person, watch movies, go for fun trips, and the like. All these limitations have been imposed upon us by this, so-called, digital world.

So what remains in this new world? What are those things that we can still do?

The first and foremost, and probably the most important, thing that remains is our ability to help each other and ourselves. Not that people do not do this.

However, focus of many remains on limiting the changes that the digital world has bestowed on us.  In general, we focus not on what isn’t but what is. Not on what was not but what was.

Some more readings:

Don’t Focus on What You’re Not. Focus on What You Are. | Judy John

Stop Chasing Purpose and Focus on Wellness | Chloe Hakim-Moore

Such a predisposition may not be entirely our doing. But, nonetheless, it is our duty to correct this predisposition of ours. Focus not on what isn’t but what is. Not on what was not, but what was. Not on what won’t be but what will be. Not on what one cannot, but on what one can. Not on one’s limitations, but on one’s strengths. Not on life’s sorrows but on life’s joys. Not on what has gone but on what remains.

This, indeed, is not to paint the picture of the ideal callous individual who cares not for any faults and simply revels in the simple pleasures. What is implied is that rather than brooding over the negatives may not be a good, and sufficient or necessary, way for o[possible motivation to turn them into positives. Love for something for what is, what it was and what it can be, what remains?

Some more readings:

Focus on what remains, not what we’ve lost – Samantha Dosso

At varying stages in one’s life, many ponder the purpose of their existence, of their role in this macrocosm, on what will outlast over one’s mortal being. Memories fade, wealth diminishes, fame is fickle. what is that really remains? Would it not be more purposeful to lead as more meaning life, now, in the present.

Such a thought has buried inside the potential for leading, not just a more practically joyful life, but s much deeper, spiritually stronger and meaningful life. That, in turn, would draw our attention to a little close to the word ‘remain’ This tiny two-syllable packs within itself a host of implications, the most notable among those being that of TIME.

Indeed, for something to remain, firstly there must have been something that did not really remain. For that something else not to remain, there must have been else must have been in the state of being for some amount of time, and then, at some other point of time, transitioned into a state of non-being.

So, let our search for what remains, let us strive to live a meaningful life as we work towards our goals and aspirations in the new normal, just as we did, just as we have always done and will always do, independent of the TIME.

We will now turn to our regular section -.

We now watch ASQ TV episode on –

We have taken up one article from Jim L. Smith’s Jim’s Gems:

  • Megafamous – The problems with being superfamous or megafamous are varied and persistent:

First, it can corrupt the work. By ignoring the smallest viable audience and focusing on the masses, the creator gives up the focus that can create important work.

Second, the infinity of more can become a gaping hole. Instead of finding solace and a foundation for better work, the bottomless pit of just a little more quickly ceases to be a stimulus and becomes a burden instead.

Trust is worth more than attention, and the purpose of the work is to create meaningful change, not to be on a list.
