  • Agar Hum KaheiN Aur_MMM_04Nov18
    Agar Hum KaheiN Aur_MMM_04Nov18 Song: Agar Hum KaheiN Aur Who Muskuraa DeiN; Album: Black Magic (1987); Lyricist: Sudarshan Faakir; Music: Jagjit Singh; Original Singers: Jagjit & Chitra Singh NOTE: For an enhanced listening experience, good pair of headphones are recommended https://youtu.be/um1gS3PnW3E English Translation: Agar hum kahen aur wo muskura dein Hum unke liye zindgaani luta dein (If I say something and she smiles at me, I could give up my life for her.) Har ik mod par hum gamon ko sazaa dein Chalo zindagi ko mohabbat bana dein (At every step in life, lets punish the sorrows, And fill this life with love) Agar khud ko bhoole to kuch bhi na bhoole Ke chaahat mein unkee khuda ko bhula dein (If I forgot myself, it’s as good as forgetting nothing, In your love, I can forget God) Kabhi gam kee aandhee jinhen choo na paaye Wafa ke hum wo nashe-man bana dein (Safe from the storms of sorrows, Lets us build a fort with our faith) Qayaamat ke deewaane kehte hain humse Chalo unke chehre se parda hata dein (Some people don’t fear a catastrophe and tell me, Lets unveil the mask from their face) Saza de silaa de, bana de mitaa de Magar wo koi faislaa to sunaa de (Punish me, judge me, make it or destroy it, But at least pass your judgement)   Sudarshan Faakir (1934–2008) better known by his takhalus “Faakir” (सुदर्शन 'फाकिर') was an Indian poet and lyricist. His ghazals and nazms were sung by Begum Akhtar and Jagjit Singh. Sudarshan Faakir was born in Ferozpur in East Punjab in 1934. After completing high school, he moved to Jalandhar and completed B.A. from DAV College. During college, he was very active in dramatics and poetry. As per Ghalib Chhuti Sharaab and an interview given by Sudarshan to Tribune, a failed love affair in Ferozpur made him leave his birthplace forever and caused him to shift his base to Jalandhar where he initially lived as a bachelor in a dingy room. This room was also the meeting place for some of his poet friends. It is said that during this period, he dressed like a Majnu, wandered like a faqir (perhaps the inspiration for his pen name) and got addicted to alcohol. His ghazals and nazms written during this period reflected mostly his anguish in the aftermath of his failed love affair. He studied MA in Political Science and English from DAV College, Jalandhar. Active in dramatics and poetry right from his college days, he directed Mohan Rakesh’s play “Ashadh Ka Ek Din” in his youth. He lent his voice to Air India Radio, Jalandhar before he left for Bombay where he later wrote for music director Jaidev. His song ‘Zindagi, zindagi, mere ghar aana zindagi' from Bhim Sen’s Dooriyan as well as dialogues for the film “Yalgaar” are popular till date. It is also claimed that the song, "Hum sab Bhartiya hain", which is sung at the NCC (National Cadet Corp) camps across the country, was penned by him.] Faakir belonged to the small and diminishing tribe of non-Muslim Urdu poets from East Punjab. Sudarshan Faakir is the first lyricist to have won a Filmfare Award for his very first song. Apart from the hits like Woh Kagaz Ki Kashti, he was famous for a religious number - Hey Ram... Hey Ram. Sudarshan ‘Faakir’ was the favorite poet of ‘Mallika-e-ghazal’ Begum Akhtar in her last phase, she sang five of his ghazals. He was also the co-traveler of Jagjit Singh, an association that began with ‘Woh kagaz ki kishti, woh barish ka pani’ in 1982. A perfectionist to the core, he labored hard over his poetry. Faakir is perhaps one of the last of the tribe of vanishing poets who lived for poetry and it is noteworthy that he put together his poetry in an anthology and published his first “Diwan” only after he became a much-celebrated poet. Sudarshan died on 18 February 2008, at a hospital in Jalandhar, at the age of 73, after a prolonged illness. He was cremated at Model town.

  • Maadi Taaru Kanku_MMM_24-Oct-18
    Maadi Taaru Kanku_MMM_24-Oct-18 I wish all my friends and family the Best of Navratri Holidays season. I have always loved this song written and composed by Avinash Vyas, a Giant in Gujarati Music world. Asha Bhonsale has done a fabulous job at this wonderful devotional song. Recently Hema Shamal rendered this song in a flawless manner which gave me the inspiration, so here I present my tribute to the creators and Ambe Mata ji with all the humble sincerity. Hopefully, my amateur friends would take a listen and give me their kind feedback. Please use a good set of headphones for an enhanced listening experience.

  • Matwaali Naar_MMM_14Aug18_Final
    Matwaali Naar_MMM_14Aug18_Final Tribute Artists: Mukesh (Singer) & Shailendra (Lyricist) Genre: Semi Classical Song: Matwaali Naar Thumak Thumak Chali Jaay; Film: Ek Phool Char Kante (1960); MD: Shanker Jaikishan; Raag: Maru Bihag; Thaat: Kalyan (Reference: www.chandrakantha.com) Taal: Kaherava (Reference: www.chandrakantha.com) Aaroh – Avroh: S G M P N S' - S' N D P M G M G R S (Reference: www.tanarang.com) This time, I thought of picking a song which was different from Mukesh’s treasure trove of Melancholic and romantic songs. There aren’t too many Semi-Classical songs sung by Mukesh but here is one that I have admired over many decades and finally I am gathering courage to attempt. I also wanted to pay my Tribute also recognizes one of the most successful lyricist “Shailendra” who made significant contributions for the magic that hovered in Bollywood with Raj Kapoor, S/J and Mukesh during the 50’s. I realize, it takes years of training and then exhausting riyaaz to deliver such numbers but like I have said in the past, I try for my passion and experimentation while recalling the original masterpieces to pay my tributes. I wish to get some training, so I can sing such numbers with proper sur management but then that has been on my do list for ever… hopefully that dream would come true someday. Please pardon me for my errors in attempting this melodious semi-classical number exquisitely rendered by Mukesh Sahab. Scattered write ups show that Mukesh (Birth name: Zoraver Chand Mathur) had to work hard in the studios during recording and some have even said that Mukesh did not have a strong hold on “sur”. Well, in my humble opinion, Mukesh made quite a mark in the industry… Having to work hard, not impeccable on every sur every time for every song may be a weakness for Mukesh but he made up with the emotional impact he was able to infuse in his songs. Motilal (renowned actor in those days also related to Mukesh) recognized his talents based on his performance at a wedding in Delhi and brought him to Bombay and helped him to put his foot in the door for Bollywood career. Mukesh took singing lessons under the tutelage of Pandit Jagannath Prasad for his inspiration to become an actor. In 1940’s the actors were expected to be able to sing. In the early days, Mukesh tried to imitate his idol K. L. Saigal but Music Director, Naushad helped Mukesh develop his own style thru 1948 movie “Mela”. Mukesh has sung many Ghazals and unpublished songs which can be found all over internet and fan blogs. Shailendra was fondly referred to by nicknames like “Pushkin” or “Kabiraj” by Raj Kapoor. Shailendra was not only talented to come up with songs for any occasion / scene but was also known for his simplicity and depth with which he wrote. Shailendra was quite economical with the use of words but his poetry made a strong impact to deliver the message. No need to list all the songs, we all know them. Public at large relate songs with the screen actors…. But behind the scene stalwarts make a lasting impression and off them all, the lyricists are the least recognized. So, here are my props for Shailendra ji. NOTE: For an enhanced listening experience, good pair of headphones are recommended

  • Sarakti Jaaye Hai_MMM_Final_08July18
    Sarakti Jaaye Hai_MMM_Final_08July18 Song: Sarakatii jaaye hai ruKh se; Lyricist: Ameer Minai; MD: Jagjit Singh; Original Singer: Jagjit Singh YT Link for my rendition: https://youtu.be/_-hBMsCcWvs Sarakti Jaaye Hai ruKh se naqaab… was popularized by Jagjit Singh. In 1982 Lakshmikant / Pyarelal team used this same ghazal for film “Deedar-E-Yaar” and employed Kishore Kumar & Lata ji for Rishi Kapoor and Tina Munim on the screen. My personal favorite of course is the Jagjit Singh version. Jagjit Singh’s ghazals back in the early 70’s was my introduction to the genre and his ever so popular ghazal from the old days is my inspiration here. I realize my version here is not a carbon copy of the maestro’s version but my love for music and desire to pay my tribute compelled me to attempt. Hopefully my amateur music loving friends will overlook my faults and appreciate the maestro even more after listening to my pale performance. Jagjit Singh, born Jagmohan Singh Dhiman in Sri Ganganagar, Bikaner State now known as Rajasthan (8 February 1941 – 10 October 2011), was an iconic Indian Ghazal singer, composer and musician. Known as the "Ghazal King", he gained acclaim together with his wife, another renowned Indian ghazal singer Chitra Singh in the 1970s and 1980s. He was equally versatile in classical, folk songs and devotional genres. He was awarded the “Padma Bhushan” by the government of India in 2003. In February 2014, Government of India released a set of two postal stamps in his honor. Jagjit Singh is credited for the revival and popularity of ghazal, an Indian classical art form, by choosing poetry that was relevant to the masses and composing them in a way that laid more emphasis on the meaning of words and melody evoked by them. In terms of Indian Classical music, his style of composing and Gayaki (singing) is considered as Bol-pradhan, one that lays emphasis on words. He suffered several sad setbacks in his personal life, especially towards the later years with the loss of his and Chitra Singh’s both children. Other little tidbit about Jagjit Singh is his passion for horses, racing horses… he owned 7!! Ameer Minai or Amir Meenai was a 19th-century Indian poet. He was respected by several contemporary poets including Ghalib, Daagh Dehalvi and Muhammad Iqbal. He wrote in Urdu, Persian and Arabic.

  • Kaise Kategi Zindagi_MMM_25June18
    Kaise Kategi Zindagi_MMM_25June18 Song: Kaise Kategi Zindagi Tere Bagair; Film: Jahan Tu WahaN Hum (1968) – Not Released; Lyricist: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan OR Rajinder Kishan; MD: Madan Mohan Original Singer: M. Rafi Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta https://youtu.be/z6qc5E6C2g0 Madan Mohan was a musical genius who had an interesting personal history but here let us review the history of this fabulous creation by him. This song was recorded for 1968 movie named “JahaaN Tum WahaaN Hum” casting Raj Kumar, Feroz Khan and Mumtaz. Unfortunately, this project did not see successful completion as the producers ran into financial difficulties and a few recorded songs remained with Madan Mohan Sahab and were not released. After the maestro passed away, his son, Sanjeev Kohli published his father’s unreleased songs in an album named “Tere Bagair” in 2009. There is some controversy regarding the lyricist for this song, It could be either Rajinder Krishan or Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. I am simply mesmerized every time I listen to this song and wanted to try my luck rendering and see if I could do justice in paying my tribute to the maestro’s creation which is serenaded originally by Rafi Sahab, another stalwart, that I can only admire and not even come close to make his songs sound remotely similar…. So hopefully, my amateur music lover friends will tolerate my humble attempt here and have a chuckle if not enjoy.

I recorded this song also along with my earlier upload. Again, this song is also one of my all time fav song for the lyrics, sad maalaul it creates, and the composition by Daan Singh.

  • Zikr Hotaa Hai_MMM_12 June 18
    Zikr Hotaa Hai_MMM_12 June 18 Song: Zikr hotaa hai jab qayaamat kaa Film: My Love (1970) Lyricist: Anand Bakshi MD: Daan Singh Original Singer: Mukesh Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta Anand Bakshi Sahab is so under-rated.... as I heard some people talking about him not writing very good poetry BUT I totally disagree... and here is an example. I know, Bakshi ji is one of Naqvi Sahab's favorite poet so I thought, I would dedicate this humble trubute by me to Dear Naqvi Saheb. Hope, all of my music lover friends will enjoy this upload. I did work on my audio mixing after I initially uploaded on the 10th and the updated version is what I am sharing with you but if you would also like to see a slide show with my earlier version of the audio mix, please take a look at my YT channel and let me know which one is better, YT link: https://youtu.be/OHGjo3ulmjk CAUTION: Use of a good pair of headphones may enhance your listening experience Disclaimer: No copyright infringement is intended.

  • Jaane Anjaane_MMM_09May18
    Jaane Anjaane_MMM_09May18 Song: Jaane Anjaane Log Mile Film: Jaane Anjaane (1971) Lyricist(s): Hasrat Jaipuri MD: Shankar-Jaikishan Original Singer: Kishore Kumar Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta https://youtu.be/uCjGA2gp5-Y One of most melodic but sad songs that Kishore Kumar left us with has been on my do list for some time and this time I found a way to cover it. Kishore da sung this song as a background song in the movie. This movie followed after blockbusters like Aradhana and Kati Patang from Shakti Samant and was not a very successful movie but this song and Manna Dey’s Chum Chum Baaje re PaayaliyaaN left a strong impression on me. Hopefully you will be able to tolerate my efforts here for ~ 3 minutes. Using a good pair of headphones may enhance the listening experience for this upload.

  • Baat Nihaare Ghanshyaam_MMM_050518_0600PM
    Baat Nihaare Ghanshyaam_MMM_050518_0600PM I am not normally drawn to sing devotional songs but off and on I feel like singing and this time I did this song for a few reasons, one of them was my desire to gift my brother on his birthday as he is a Krishna lover. Jagjit Singh of course has done such a wonderful job on this song but hopefully you will be able to tolerate it for a few minutes in my voice. Do try and listen with a good pair of headphones for an enhanced listening experience. You may also visit my upload on YT; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYGGNlKLZ2A Best Regards Madhukar
