Raaga Based Song Of The Day #66

Raaga Based Song of the Day: Kaise din beete kaise beeti ratiyan….
Raag Manj Khammaj, Tal Kaherava

Lata Mangeshkar with Pandit Ravi Shankar. Also in the pic are Ustaad Ali Akbar Khan and Chatur Lal (Pic courtesy: lataonline.com)

This song is from the 1960 Hrishikesh Mukherjee movie Anuradha. The movie had songs composed by Pandit Ravi Shankar on the lyrics of Shailendra. So important was this raag to Pandit Ravi Shankar that he composed two of the five songs of the movie in this raag. All were sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Please listen to Pandit Ravi Shankar performing this raag live at Woodstock Festival:

Also, you may like to listen to his daughter Anoushka Shankar performing this raag:

I have given you enough songs in Khammaj Thaat. I have given you a song in Raag Khammaj, the basic raag of this thaat: O sajana barkha bahaar aayi (Please see:Raaga Based Song Of The Day #12).

We have completed sixty-five days of Raaga Based Songs of the Day. Our first post in the series was titled ‘Raaga Based Song Of The Day #1’ and the song was a Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar song from the 1970 Shakti Samanta movie Pagla Kahin Ka: Tum mujhe youn bhula na paoge.  It is in Raag Jhinjhoti, Tal Kaherava.

Our sixty-fifth post or the last post was titled Raaga Based Song Of The Day #65 and the song was a Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar song from the 1967 SN Tripathi movie Rani Roopmati starring Nirupa Roy and Bharat Bhushan: Aa laut ke aaja mere meet. It is in Raag Madhamat Sarang, Tal Kaherava.

This blog has a number of posts on Raaga based songs in Hindi movies titled similarly; for example: The Best Raaga Based Songs in Hindi Movies – Raaga Darbari Kanada – Part III‘.

In the last sixty-five days of sharing Raaga based songs of the day, I have given you songs based on Raag Jhinjhoti, Gara, Bhimpalasi, Madhuvanti, Shivaranjani, Bihag, Pahadi, Sarang, Pilu, Bhairavi, Khammaj, Charukesi, Kalyan or Yaman, Desh, Malgunji, Kirwani, Kedar, Bageshri, Megh Malhar, Bhupali, Ahir Bhairav, Malkaush, Mand, Adana, Kafi, Rageshri, Jaunpuri, Tilang, Janasammohini, Chayanat, Shuddha Kalyan, Gaur Sarang, Jogiya, Asavari, Maru Bihag, Durga, Lalit, Puria Dhanashri, Bhinna Sahdja, Sohani, Multani, Patdeep, Jaijaiwanti, Tilak Kamod, Hemant, Basant Mukhari, Gujri Todi, Kalavati, Hamir, Bhatiyar, Gawati, Shyam Kalyan, Gorakh Kalyan and Madhamat Sarang. The only five raagas that have been repeated so far are Pahadi, the raaga of my home place in the Himalayas, Maru Bihag, Raag Kirwani, Jhinjhoti and Bhairavi. That makes a total of 54 raagas so far. Today, I am giving you a song in a new raag Manj Khammaj. That makes it 55 raagas so far.

Today, I give you a song sung by Lata Mangeshkar on the lyrics of Shailendra and on a composition by Pandit Ravi Shankar. As I said, it is in Raag Manj Khammaj, Tal Kaherava.

However, first, lets take up the value added learning of today. Today, we shall have a look at the list of raagas in Hindustani Classical Music that have been taken up separately in Wikipedia.

Now, you know, how difficult it would be to get to the end of this list. Also, now you would know how difficult it must have been for Pandit Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande to include most of these in just Ten Thaats!

As I mentioned, today’s song is composed in Raag Manj Khammaj, Tal Kaherava.

Raag Manj Khammaj belongs to the Khammaj Thaat. Its Jati is Audhav-Sampoorna, that is it is heptatonic in Aaroha (five notes except Rishad and Pancham) and has all seven notes in Avaroha. The time for singing this raag is midnight. In Manj Khammaj, Ma assumes dominance and acts as the tonic. Manj Khammaj is a raaga of recent origin, reported to have been created by Sarod maestro Allauddin Khan. And now, you will appreciate the picture of Lata Mangeshkar with Pt. Ravi Shankar that I selected for you in the beginning of the article: the picture shows Ustaad Ali Akbar Khan to extreme left. He was Ustaad Allauddin Khan’s son. The mood of the raaga is to wonder at the unpredictable nature of the world.

Two other Hindi films songs composed in this raag are: Jaane kaise sapno mein kho gayi akhiyan from the same movie Anuradha and Kanha aan padi re tere dwar from Shagird. Both songs are in Kaherava Tal.

(Poster courtesy: hindilinks4u)

The song Kaise din beete kaise beeti ratiyan is from the 1960 Hrishikesh Mukherjee movie Anuradha starring Leela Naidu in the title role with Balraj Sahni.  The movie had another four beautiful songs also penned by Shailendra and composed by Pandit Ravi Shankar and sung by Lata Mangeshkar: Samaa albela din hain milan ke (with Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey and chorus), Haay re vo din kyun na aaye, Jaane kaise sapano mein kho gayi akhiyan, and Saanvre Saanvre. Jaane kaise sapano mein kho gayi akhiyan also is in Raag Manj Khammaj
