I had to remind myself today that one point of time I was consistently thinking of films, songs, lyricists, musicians and everything related to Indian film industry, courtesy my job as a radio jockey in FM Rainbow 101.3MHz
It is close to six years that I have forgotten what it is to be in the RJ’s seat. Of course I do miss the days, adulation from listeners and my own working style.
But today being a mother, stay at home person and a writer has taken the front seat right now in my driving phase of life.
Today I happened to hear the song ‘Kahin deep jale kahin dil’ from Bees Saal Baad. It just invoked a gush of memories of me doing my script shows before Meethi Yaadein, my show on Mondays and Wednesday mornings.
Thankfully to help people like me retain beautiful memories of songs in films, there have been many beautiful melodies in hindi cinema that continue to mesmerize the listeners even to this date. Of course I am talking of these melodies from 40’s to late 70’s.
A few songs that immediately come to my mind belonging to this category are:
Kahin deep chale kahin dil from Bees Saal Baad
Naina Barse Rim Jhim from Woh Kaun Thi
Ayega Aanewala from Mahal
Gumnaam hai koi from Gumnaam
Mera Saaya Saath Hoga from Mera Saaya
