Eyi Raat Tomar Amar


Lyrics : Gouriprasanna Majumder
Singer & Composer :  Hemanta Mukherjee
Movie : Deep Jwele Jai (1959)

Flute used for notations : F#

What a soulful song!  This song was remade in Hindi in the 1964 movie Kohra.  The melody of the Sthayi part of both the versions is same.  But, the Antara in this Bengali version is shorter and simpler than its counterpart.

A very easy to play song on instruments as it does not contain any komal swars.  You only have to pay attention to the use of Meend (~) between the notes to create that wavy effect in the melody.

Hindi version of this song is here.

Babuji dheere chalna


Sargam for song : Babuji Dheere Chalna
Singer : Geeta Dutt
Lyrics : Majrooh Sultanpuri
Music : O P Nayyar
Movie : Aar Paar (1954)

What a peppy song!  Making sargam for this song was a bit tricky for the fast paced interlude parts.  However, after a few trial and errors, I got hold of it.  While first I was playing it from Sa, but later I had to switch over to low Pa as its first note.

Only one note “ga” has to be played flat or as komal swar in the entire song, and komal “Dha” at one or two places.  The fast interludes which are played on Accordion instrument should be played initially at a slow pace before you get a hang on it and then play it as fast as needed later on.

Ranaar Chhutechhe

sargam for ranaar chhutechhe

Sargam for Bengali song “Ranar Chhutechhe”.

This is actually a heart wrenching poem written by Sukanta Bhattacharya depicting the hardships in the life of a Postman who was called as “Runner” by Britishers in olden times.

Singer and Music Director : Hemanta Mukherjee, who did full justice to this poem with his amazing composition and devine voice.

Let’s enjoy playing this one on flute and other instruments. I am producing the Sargam notes on my C scale flute.
