An Indian Morning
Sunday October 1st, 2017 with Dr. Harsha V. Dehejia and Kishore "Kish" Sampat
The first 30 minutes of the program features classical, religious as well as regional and popular music. The second one hour features community announcements and ear pleasing music from old/new & popular Indian films.

An Indian Morning celebrates not only the music of India but equally its various arts and artisans, poets and potters, kings and patriots. The ethos of the program is summarized by its signature closing line, "Seeking the spirit of India, Jai Hind". एक बार फिर हार्दिक अभिनंदन आप सबका, शुक्रिया, घन्यवाद और Thank You इस प्रोग्राम को सुनने के लिए । विजयादशमी का पावन पर्व हर्षोल्लास के साथ पूरे देश भर में मनाया जा रहा है। विजयादशमी, जिसे दशहरा भी कहा जाता है, बुराई पर अच्छाई की जीत का प्रतीक है। इस शुभवसर पर ’An Indian Morning’ की ओर से हम अपने सभी श्रोताओं व पाठकों को देते हैं ढेरों शुभकामनाएँ और ईश्वर से यही प्रार्थना करते हैं कि इस संसार से बुराई समाप्त हो और चारों तरफ़ केवल अच्छाई ही अच्छाई हो; लोग एक दूसरे का सम्मान करें, कोई किसी को हानी ना पहुँचाएँ, ख़ुशहाली हो, हरियाली हो, बस! आइए आज इस पवित्र पर्व पर सुने विजयादशमी के बारे में । 01-THE STORY OF VIJAYADASHMI CD MISC-20171001 Track#01 5:22 DUSSEHRA FESTIVAL HISTORY-2015 Partners in poetry 02- AANKHON MEIN KYA JI CD MISC-20171001 TRACK#02 4:38 NAU DO GYARAH-1957; KISHORE KUMAR, ASHA BHOSLE; S.D.BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI TODAY, October 1, is the birth anniversary of two of Hindi film music’s most creative and consistent artistes. While music director SD Burman, born in 1906, continued to weave reams of melodic magic till his death in 1975, the 1919-born lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri remained active for over five decades, till he passed away in 2000. And the best thing about both these geniuses who shared birthdays was that they combined to create many outstanding songs together. Majrooh Sultanpuri and S.D. Burman not only shared a common birthday but also a musical sensibility whereby simple, common day expressions were wrapped in delightfully catchy tunes. 03-MANA JANAB NE PUKARA NAHI CD MISC-20171001 TRACK#03 3:57 PAYING GUEST-1957; KISHORE KUMAR; S.D.BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI We listen regularly and still yearn for melodies like “Hai Apna Dil to Awaara” (”Solva Saal”), “Hum Bekhudi Mein Tum Ko Pukare Chale Gaye” (”Kala Paani”), “Ik Ladki Bheegi Bhaagee Si” (”Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi”), “Deewana Mastana Hua Dil”, “Chal Ri Sajni Ab Kya Soche” and “Saathi Na Koi Manzil” (”Bombai Ka Babu”), “Na Tum Hamein Jaano” ( “Baat Ek Raak Ki”), “Aise To Na Dekho”, “Kahin Bekhayaal Hokar” and “Arey Yaar Meri Tum Bhi Ho Gazab” (”Teen Devian”). The common thread in most of Majrooh – Burman Dada creations is that the simple, common day expressions are wrapped in delightfully catchy tunes that are easy to render by common people. It is not that the verses are devoid of meaningful poetry; in fact, many deeply philosophical ideas are ensconced in uncomplicated terminology. 04-HAI APNA DIL TO AWARA CD MISC-20171001 Track#04 4:00 SOLVA SAAL-1958; HEMANT KUMAR; S.D.BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI 05-KOI AAYA DHADKAN KEHTI HAI CD MISC-20171001 Track#05 3:30 LAAJWANTI-1958; ASHA BHOSLE; S.D.BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI 06-ACHCHHA JI MAIN HARI CD MISC-20171001 Track#06 3:36 KALA PANI-1958; Mohammad Rafi, Asha Bhosle; S.D.Burman; Majrooh Sultanpuri 07-HUM THHE WO THI CD MISC-20171001 Track#07 3:40 CHALTI KA NAAM GHADI (1958); KISHORE KUMAR; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI The feather soft voice of Talat Mehmood is sheer delight on any occasion. But listening to his all- time classic “Jalte Hain Jiske Liye Teri Aankhon Ke Diye” provides an inexpressible joy that only sublime music can bestow. While Talat’s love ballad from “Sujaata” recently brought back vivid images of one of the most outstanding scenes from Indian cinema, it also magnified how good poetry unfolds profound truth of life with effortless ease. And suddenly, it dawned upon me that October 1 had a special significance as it was the birth date of Majrooh Sultanpuri and Sachin Dev Burman, the writer as well as the composer of the enchanting song, who not only shared their birthday but also shared their crafts to give us some of the most lilting hits of all time! 08-JALTE HAI JISKE LIYE CD MISC-20171001 Track#08 4:12 SUJATA (1959); TALAT MEHMOOD; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI In 1960, the Dev Anand film ‘Manzil’ had the Rafi-Geeta Dutt beauty ‘Chupke se mile pyaase pyaase’, Manna Dey’s ‘Humdum se gaye’ and Hemant Kumar’s ethereal ‘Yaad aa gayee who nasheeli nigahen’. 09-SATHI NA KOI MANZIL CD MISC-20171001 Track#09 4:50 BOMBAI KA BABU(1960); MOHAMMAD RAFI; S D BURMAN; S-MAJROOH SULTANPURI 10-CHUPKE SE MILE PYASE PYASE CD MISC-20171001 Track#10 4:25 MANZIL (1960); MOHAMMAD RAFI, GEETA DUTT; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI In ‘Bombai ka Baboo’, Mukesh sang the unforgettable ‘Chal ri sajni’.In the 1962 movie ‘Baat Ek Raat Ki’, Hemant Kumar sang the marvellous ‘Na tum hamein jaano’, with Suman Kalyanpur doing a version too. 11-NA TUM HAMEN JANO CD MISC-20171001 Track#11 3:24 BAAT EK RAAT KI (1962); HEMANT KUMAR; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI The SD-Majrooh-Dev Anand combine had two more masterpieces. In the 1965 film ‘Teen Deviyan’ we heard Kishore singing ‘Khwab ho tum’, the Kishore-Asha song ‘Arrey yaar meri’ and the Kishore-Lata tune ‘Likha hai teri aankhon mein’. 12-AISE TO NA DEKHO CD MISC-20171001 Track#12 3:43 TEEN DEVIAN (1965); MOHAMMAD RAFI; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI In 1967, Shailendra was to do ‘Jewel Thief’. He fell ill, and contributed only ‘Rula ke gaya sapna mera’. Majrooh took over and chipped in with Kishore’s ‘Yeh dil na hota bechara’, the Kishore-Lata gem ‘Aasman ke neeche’ and Asha’s ‘Raat akeli hai’. 13-YE DIL NA HOTA BECHARA CD MISC-20171001 Track#13 4:20 JEWEL THIEF(1967); KISHORE KUMAR; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI From screen to ears, it is a marvellous trajectory of a ‘lethal weapon’ that pierces the heart yet compounds our enjoyment! Perhaps, it would not be wrong to say that the duo’s remarkable synergies gave rise to many such ‘lethal weapons of mass attraction’ that never failed to leave their imprint on the listeners’ ears! 14-PALKON KE PEECHE SE KYA TUM NE KEH DALA CD MISC-20171001 Track#14 5:12 TALASH(1969); LATA MANGESHKAR, MOHAMMAD RAFI; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI The two of them also worked in films like ‘Lajwanti’, ‘Sitaron Se Aage’, ‘Talaash’, ‘Phagun’ and ‘Sagina’ (remember ‘Saala mein to saahab ban gaya’?) 15-SAALA MAIN TO SAAHAB BAN GAYA CD MISC-20171001 Track#15 3:14 FILM-SAGINA (1974); KISHORE KUMAR; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI But their biggest hit arguably was in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 1973 film ‘Abhimaan’, which had ‘Tere mere milan yeh raina’ (Lata-Kishore), ‘Teri bindiya’ (Lata-Rafi), ‘Lutey koi man’ (Lata-Manhar Udhas), Kishore’s ‘Meet na mila’ and three Lata solos ‘Nadiya kinarey’, ‘Ab toh hai tumse’ and ‘Piya bina’. But whatever the technique or manner in which the duo crafted the songs, what is to be admired is the dexterity of their individual talents that fused together in harmony, leaving behind an enormous reservoir of musical entertainers for listeners. Forty four years after its release, ‘Abhimaan’ is still considered to be among that all-time great soundtracks. Appropriately, it was the result of the creative combination of two geniuses who had the same birthday. As a team, SD Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri made a contribution that was timeless. 16-AB TO HAI TUMSE CD MISC-20171001 Track#16 3:30 ABHIMAN(1973); LATA MANGESHKAR; S D BURMAN; MAJROOH SULTANPURI THE END समाप्त
