An Indian Morning celebrates not only the music of India but equally its various arts and artisans, poets and potters, kings and patriots. 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. The ethos of the program is summarized by its signature closing line, "Seeking the spirit of India, Jai Hind". 00-A-DR DEHEJIA’S MISC-20200531 289:15 00-B-ANNOUNCEENTS MISC-20200531 13:00 01-ZINDAGI KAISI HAI PAHELI MISC-20200531 TRACK#01 3:39 ANAND-1971; MANNA DEY; SALIL CHAUDHARY; YOGESH जिंदगी कैसी है पहेली... लिखने वाले गीतकार योगेश का हुआ निधन जानेमाने लेखक और गीतकार योगेश गौड़ (Yogesh) का 77 साल की उम्र में निधन हो गया है। उनके निधन पर लता मंगेशकर ने सोशल मीडिया पर उन्‍हें श्रद्धाजंलि अर्पित की है। उन्होंने ट्विटर करते हुए लिखा,' मुझे अभी पता चला कि दिल को छूनेवाले गीत लिखनेवाले कवि योगेश जी का आज स्‍वर्गवास हुआ। ये सुनके मुझे बहुत दुख हुआ। योगेश जी के लिखे कई गीत मैंने गाए। योगेश जी बहुत शांत और मधुर स्‍वभाव का इंसान थे। मैं उनको विनम्र श्रद्धाजंलि अर्पण करती हूं। आपको बता दें कि योगेश गौड़ का जन्म 19 मार्च 1943 को उत्तर प्रदेश के लखनऊ में हुआ था। वह काम की तलाश में निकले थे, उनके चचेरे भाई एक पटकथा निर्देशक थे। उन्‍होंने पहली बार ऋषिकेश मुखर्जी के साथ मिलकर काम किया और उन्‍होंने 'कहीं दूर जब दिन ढल जाए' गीत लिखा। इसके बाद उन्‍होंने 'जिंदगी कैसी है पहेली' और 'रि‍मझिम गिरे सावन' जैसे गीत लिखे। योगेश ने एक लेखक के रूप में टेलीविजन धारावाहिकों में भी काम किया। Veteran lyricist Yogesh was the man behind the songs of many films like ‘Anand’ and ‘Rajnigandha’, passed away in Mumbai on Friday. Here is a musical tribute to him Yogesh, who passed away in Mumbai at the age of 77 on Friday, was one of the last of the great lyricists of Hindi cinema. He may not have been as prolific as Anand Bakshi, Majrooh Sultanpuri or Shailendra, but he nevertheless could boast some of the finest, most meaningful lines you would come across in film music. In this tribute to Yogesh, An Indian Morning replays some of his best songs: KAHIN DOOR JAB DIN DHAL JAAYE... (ANAND) कहीं दूर जब दिन ढल जाए सांझ की दुल्हन बदन चुराए चुपके से आये मेरे ख्यालों के आँगन में कोई सपनों के दीप जलाये Some of Yogesh's songs are sheer poetry. Like this one. The opening stanza's translation would go something like this: Somewhere far away, when the day ends Dusk’s bride comes out shyly, silently In the courtyard of my thoughts Someone has lit up lamps of dreams This song also has to be among the very best for both composer Salil Chowdhury and singer Mukesh. Yogesh's lines become even more meaningful when it is placed in the context of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s poignant film about terminally ill man and his doctor – roles which Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan both excelled in. 02-ZINDAGI KAISI HAI PAHELI MISC-20200531 TRACK#02 5:55 ANAND-1971; MUKESH; SALIL CHAUDHARY; YOGESH RIM JHIM GIRE SAAVAN… (MANZIL) रिमझिम गिरे सावन सुलग सुलग जाए मन भीगे आज इस मौसम में लगी कैसी ये अगन There are two versions to this song composed by R.D. Burman. It is about how the cool drops of rain fail to quench the fire in one's heart. Lata Mangeshkar's version is picturised in rain, on Amitabh Bachchan and Moushumi Chatterjee, the Bollywood leading lady with the most charmingly toothy smile. The male version is shot indoors, with Bachchan singing at a mehfil. Through Kishore Kumar’s voice alone, however, you could feel the fresh drops of the first rain of the monsoon. 03-RIM JHIM GIRE SAWAN MISC-20200531 TRACK#03 3:49 MANZIL-1979; LATA MANGESHKAR; R. D. BURMAN; YOGESH BADI SOONI SOONI HAI ZINDAGI YEH ZINDAGI... (MILI) बड़ी सूनी सूनी है ज़िन्दगी यह ज़िन्दगी मैं खुद से हूँ यहाँ अजनबी अजनबी This timeless melody speaks about loneliness and how you become a stranger to yourself. It may not be among the most anthologised songs of Kishore Kumar, but it is undoubtedly one of his finest. And it was the last composition of the prolific, hugely gifted S.D. Burman. 04-BADI SUNI SUNI HAI YE ZINDAGI MISC-20200531 TRACK#04 4:15 MILI-1975; KISHORE KUMAR; S. D. BURMAN; YOGESH AANEMAN JAANEMAN TER DO NAYAN – CHHOTI SI BAAT Truly a common man's love story. Most of us will be able to identify with this, which was the real forte of actors like Amol Palekar and director like Basu Chatterjee & Lyricist Yogesh. सचमुच एक आम आदमी की प्रेम कहानी। हम में से ज्यादातर लोग इसकी पहचान कर पाएंगे, जो अमोल पालेकर जैसे अभिनेताओं और निर्देशक बासु चटर्जी और गीतकार योगेश जैसे की असली बयार थी। 05-JAANEMAN JAANEMAN TERE DO NAYAN MISC-20200531 TRACK#05 5:13 CHHOTI SI BAAT-1976; YESUDAS, ASHA BHOSLE; SALIL CHAUDHARY; YOGESH KAHAAN TAK YEH MAN KO ANDHERE CHALENGE... (BAATON BAATON MEIN) कहाँ तक यह मन को अँधेरे चलेंगे उदासी भरे दिन कभी तो ढालेंगे It is one of the most underrated songs for both singer Kishore Kumar and composer Rajesh Roshan. They both did justice to Yogesh's lovely lines, that speak about the inevitability of the dawn after the long, dark night. यह पतझड़ का मौसम घड़ी दो घड़ी है नए फूल कल फिर डगर में खिलेंगे... (This season of autumn won't last long Flowers will bloom on your path again) Maybe those lines are particularly meaningful in these dreadful times of Coronavirus. 06-KAHAN TAK YEH MAN KO ANDHERE CHALENGE MISC-20200531 TRACK#06 3:39 BAATON BAATON MEIN-1979; KISHORE KUMAR; RAJESH ROSHAN; YOGESH RAJNIGANDHA PHOOL TUMHARE... (RAJNIGANDHA) रजनीगंधा फूल तुम्हारे... महके यूही जीवन में जैसे महके प्रीत पिया की मेरे अनुरागी मन में Yogesh delved deep into the mind of a woman in love to come out with this beautiful song. Salil Chowdhury gave it a gorgeous tune and it also had Lata Mangeshkar at her best. Then Vidya Sinha, Bollywood's girl next door of the 1970s, ensured the song would look good too. 07-RAJANIGANDHA PHOOL TUMHARE MISC-20200531 TRACK#07 4:30 RAJANIGANDHA-1974; LATA MANGESHKAR; SALIL CHAUDHARY; YOGESH Towards the latter part of his career, he struggled to keep in step with the changing pace and the new publicity and marketing centric energy of the film industry. He kept to himself and spent most of his time in his small flat in Goregaon. The way Yogesh was forgotten is perhaps reflective of the ephemeral nature of popularity and success in the film industry. He passed away at his friend Satyendra’s home in Vasai Road. “Yogesh saab’s work was all around us, we all grew up on his songs, but the sad fact is very few people associated his works with his name. Probably because he was a simple man who lived away from the PR-driven madness that this industry has always been. This brutal city wilfully forgets or erases the names that don’t fit its narrow mould of what’s limelight-worthy,” says Grover. “There’s no other way to explain why the lyricist of legendary songs like “Kahin door jab”, “Zindagi kaisi hai paheli”, “Aaye tum yaad mujhe”, “Na jaane kyun”, and probably the most well-known Mumbai rains song “Rimjhim gire saawan” among others, lived a life of un-recognition and stayed mostly absent from our memories for a couple of decades now,” he says. Yogesh made a name for himself for writing simple Hindi lyrics, in an industry which at that time was leaning heavily towards more flowery Urdu verse. He wrote about things he saw and experienced, the hustle and bustle of a beach, or the way a metropolis functions, the way the sun peeks between high rise buildings. He never harboured dreams to go and write in an idyllic, restful atmosphere of the hills. The energy of the city is what he thrived on.
