Ya Mustafa Has Seventeen Versions!

Ya Mustafa Has Seventeen Versions!

It was in early 80’s that my romance with RD Burman’s music started to peak. It was during those days that I heard the classic from Sanam teri kasam – Dekhta Hoon Koi Ladki Haseen sung by Kishore Kumar. Amazing song with contemporary feet tapping music.

A decade down the line in 1994 came a terrible film called Aaatish starring Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon. It had equally forgettable music by Nadeem Shravan. There was one song that somehow stuck - Meri Muhobat Ka Tu Gawah. It was sung by Jolly Mukherjee, Mukul Aggarwal & Alka Yagnik .This was very similar to the one from Sanam Teri Kasam.

Nadeem Shravan are well known for lifting Pakistani songs. So I started my own research and I was absolutely amazed at the number of versions of this song! So sit back and read along to discover that this song has not one or two but 17 versions!!
This is the story-
It started in 19…


बैठा हूँ कुछ लोगोंके साथ
कुछ जाने .... कुछ अजनबी हैं
दुश्मनी तो नहीं है ....  मगर
जज़्बातों की कमी है

सवाल और जवाब हो रहे हैं
किस्से भी सुनाए जा रहें हैं .... मगर
बातें नहीं हो रही है

सभी मंज़िलोंकी तलाश में दौड़ रहे  हैं
साथ सफर भी कर रहे हैं .... मगर
कोई किसी का हमसफ़र नहीं है

मैं इस भीड़ में उस अनजाने को ढूंढ रहा हूँ
जो जीना सीखा दे
ज़िंदगी न सही ... जीने की वजह तो बता दे

Airtel mala tujhyavar bharosa nay

AIRTEL मला तुझ्यावर भरोसा नाय 

In April I got an SMS from Airtel saying they wanted my conformation to get 10 Gb FREE for 3 months. I accepted their offer. That was a blunder. I still have 9 Gb balance of that 10 Gb's. For the past 2 months I have not recieved any bill from Airtel on my registered email address.When I checked on their website I was shocked to see internet charges of  Rs.23000.

Then started the painful process of calling their call center on 121. The call center guys kept on promising that they will resolve this and call me back. So far there have been 4 empty promises and no call backs.

This is the treatment they give to a person who has been with Airtel for a very long time. Here is a copy of the mails that I have sent to Airtel.

Aye Muhobbat Tere Anjaam Pe Rona Aaya

I have rediscovered a lost song from Mughal-E-Azam written by Shakil Badayuni and sung by Begum Akhtar.
