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.
