Daughter of Earth - A Touching Documentary By T.J.Gill

Daughter of Earth - A Touching Documentary 
By T.J.Gill

It gives me immense pride and honor to showcase here on my Blog a touching Documentary by T.J. Gill Sir, a dear friend of mine, whose documentary  has been awarded the Best Documentary Film at the Delhi Film Festival Today .This film is dedicated to Nirbhaya and all women !!!

I have known T.J. Gill not only as a Hubby of my long standing Mentor, Guide, Closest Friend Sandra Correia Gill who I have respect, love and care for as one of my closest friends in life. Today it is a matter of pride for me to dedicate this post to this Film, not that it is T.J.Gill's first film but as it touched me so much, and I could not but hold myself back from writing this post.

T.J. Gill needs no introduction, and I am too small in stature to write much about him and can only say he is a Writer Director of repute with years of experience in Documentaries, AD films, Short film. Recent short films was in Cannes film festival and is also short listed for Delhi International film festival.

The Special mention of "Daughter of Earth" comes after watching this film and finding a unique style with which he has presented the very delicate, yet most important topic of "Nirbhaya" and in general the way how women are treated all over the world. 

I will not write much about it and leave it for you to watch this film, which has received the Best Documentary Film Award at the Delhi Film Festival . A Certificate of Appreciation received by him is posted below. 

I now leave you to watch this Film here below and experience the pain, and feelings these women go through, which is so well setup by by T.J. Gill.

I would have loved to write a short review of this film, but leave it to you to enjoy the subtle, yet strong way in which T.J. Gill puts forward the message to us all. 
Wishing T.J.Gill the very best in all his ongoing ventures and success to come!

Amazing Versions of Lataji's "Lag Ja Gale" Then and Now!

Amazing Versions of Lataji's "Lag Ja Gale" Then and Now!

Was listening to this amazing immortal song "Lag Ja Gale" then sung by our very own Nightingale - Lata Mangeshkar, and also browsed through for similar renditions of this song by other singer, and came out with some great videos which are a true tribute to this great composition.Composed by the late Madan Mohan, the track was pictured on Sadhana and Manoj Kumar. Decide for yourself without a doubt though who is the Queen!

I have tried to give the lyrics of the song too to make it more enlivened to hear.

लग जा गले के फिर ये हसीं रात हो ना हो
शायद फिर इस जनम में मुलाक़ात हो ना हो

हम को मिली हैं आज ये घडीयाँ नसीब से
जी भर के देख लीजिये हम को करीब से
फिर आप के नसीब में ये बात हो ना हो
शायद फिर इस जनम में मुलाक़ात हो ना हो

पास आईये के हम नहीं आयेंगे बार बार
बाहे गले में डाल के हम रो ले जार जार
आँखों से फिर ये प्यार की बरसात हो ना हो
शायद फिर इस जनम में मुलाक़ात हो ना हो
  
The same lyrics transliterated into English
Lag ja gale ki phir
 Ye hasin raat ho na ho
 Shayad phir is janam mein
 Mulakat ho na ho
 Lag jaa gale se
 
 Hum ko mili hai aaj
 Ye ghadiya naseeb se
 Je bhar ke dekh leejiye
 Hamako kareeb se
 Phir apke naseeb mein
 Ye raat ho na ho
 Phir is janaam mein
 Mulakat ho na ho
 
 Lag ja gale ki phir
 Ye hasin raat ho na ho
 
 Pas aiye ki ham nahin
 Ayenge baar baar
 Bahen gale mein daal ke
 Ham ro le zaar-zaar
 Ankhoon se phir ye
 Pyaar ki barsaat ho na ho
 Shayad phir is janam mein
 Mulakat ho na ho 
******** 
We will listen first to the Original Track Video as seen in the film.
  *****
This is an amazing Tribute Paid by Shreya Ghoshal in singing this same song so well. Touching!
*****
The same Song so well sung by Sanam Puri, in a Male Voice, but gives such a great effect.
*****
This is a version Sung by another evergreen Singer Anuradha Paudval as a tribute to the great Lataji!
*****
And here is a sort of Remix Version of the same song sung by our Modern Diva Singer Sunidhi Chauhan, giving a new twist to the song.
*****
There have been many who have tried sing this song, and try and match the original, I leave it to you to decide! Happy Listening!

Aaina Mujhse Meri Pehli Si Soorat Maange - Video Review

आईना मुझसे मेरी पेहली सी सूरत मांगे  

Aaina Mujhse Meri Pehli Si Soorat Maange - Video Review

A beautiful song from the movie DADDY by Mahesh Bhatt.Very well sung by Talat Aziz.The review has been made only because of the purity of the content, dept of the lyrics and the intensity of the dialogue that precedes the song. 

This is the dialoge that Anupam Kher renders so intensely in the video ....(Some of the less relevant sentences have been deleted), which you can watch in the video.

बहुत दिनों तक अँधेरे मैं रहने के बाद , जब कोई इन्सान रौशनी मैं आता है , तो उसकी हालत वैसे ही होती है जैसे आज मेरी हो रही है। इतने सालोँ बाद , हजारों आँखें घूरती हुई , बहुत अज़ीब लग रहा है।  सच पूछो तो, आज मैं इस वक़्त बहुत डरा हुआ हूँ।  हार जीत का कोई ख़ास मतलब नहीं आज मेरे लिए, क्यों की यह जगज , जहां मैं खड़ा हूँ , ना तो वोह पहलवानों का अखाड़ा है , और नाही रेस के घोडों का मैदान।  यह संगीत की दुनिया है।  यहां उन लोगोँ में मुक़ाबला होता है जो दर्द को पूजते हैं।  पीड़ा की साधना करते हैं।  और अपने घमोंको सुरों में ढाल कर , लोगों का मनोरंजन करते हैं।  बहुत अच्छा गाया तुम्हने - दरअसल सभी ने अच्छा गाया।  मुझे इस बात की ज़रा भी परवाह नहीं की जुद्गेस मेरे बारे मैं क्या फैसला करेंगे , क्योँ की मैं यहां सिर्फ अपनी बेटी पूजा के लिए आया हुँ।  यह साबित करने के लिए  की उसकी कोशिशें बेकार नहीं गयी।  मैं, मैं, हार भी गया तो - जिंदगी रुक नहीं जाएगी, सूरज कल दोबारा उगेगा , दिन होगा , रात होगी, - इसलिय पूजा - यह फैसला करने का हक़ मैं सिर्फ तुम्हे देता हूँ, की आज मैं यहाँ हारा , या जीता -  

This is followed by the song - 

Aaina mujse meri paheli si surat mange-3

Mere apne meri hone ki nishani maange

Aaina mujse mari paheli si surat mange



Mein bhatakata hi raha dard ke viraane mein

Waqt likhta raha chere pe har pal ka hishab

Meri shorat meri diwangi ki nazar hui

Pi gayi may ki bolte meri geeto ki kitab

Aaj lauta hoon tu hasne ki ada bhool gaya

Yeh sahar bhoola muje mein bhi ishe bhool gaya

Mere apne meri hone ki nishani mange

Aaina mujse meri paheli surat mange



Mera fan phir muje bazaar mein le aaya hai

Yeh vo jagah ke jahan mero vafa bikate hain

Baap bikate hain aur lakhte jigar bikate hain

Kookh bikati hain dil bikate hain sar bikate hain

Is badalti hui duniya ka khuda koi nahin

Saste daamo pe yahan roz khuda bikate hain



Har kharidaar ko bazaar mein bikataa paya

Hum kya paayenge kisi ne yahaan kya paayaa

Mere aheshas mere phool kahin aur chale
Bol pujaa meri bachi kahin aur chale aur chale


For those who would like the Hindi Lyrics I could only copy an image from one of the sites
