Bhavesh bhai,

You are amazing! your compilation must have required a lot of concentrated effort. You are perfectionist! you love music, you love music makers their stories their agonies and joys. You juxtapose musics from films of different countries! You recognize no borders when it comes to music.

You are a veritable encyclopedia of music and fluent in computer networking to accumulate such diverse audio-video information and then present it in such an artful manner.

Thanks. I will slowly go through your collection which I am sure will keep growing.

Bhumika (1977) 'Bajo re Mondar Bajo' by Sarasvati Rane & Meena Faterpekar

Born on 24th January 1923 - Ratan Bhalchandra Salgaonker became famous as actress Hansa Wadkar, passed away at the age of 48 on 23rd August 1971. At the tender age of 15 she married her relative Bandarker. However, she also narrates in her autobiography about relations that she had out of the wedlock.

Bhumika was based on actress Hansa Wadkar's autobiography. Vijay Tendulkar's dialogues written by Satyadev Dubey and Girish Karnad were par excellence, very apt to the subject. 1959 version 'Sangte Aika' (सांगते आइक मंझे मी सांगते - तुमि आइक I am telling, you listen) directed by Anant Govind Mane became a mega hit starring Jayshree Gadkar, Chandrakant, Sulochana Latkar etc।

The song here is penned and composed by Sadarang (Niyamat Khan) who is considered to be pioneer of Khayal Gayaki. Raag Shuddh Kalyan.
