AN ARTICLE ON VBS IN NORTHERN INDIA PATRIKA

 

Dear Mahendra Modiji, It was a great pleasure meeting you recently. I am e-mailing this article that appeared in the Northern India Patrika, Allahabad in the weekly Media Musings Movie Montage’ column on Sunday 29th June, 2008. You will recall that I used to write this column when you were posted here. It has been continuing since then.

Regards.- V.S.DATTA, Editor, NIP, Allahabad.


 

 

MAHENDRA MODI SPEAKS.
Vividh Bharti determined to face the challenge of rival FM channels

Undaunted by the arrival of different rival FM channels, Vividh Bharti is determined to further strengthen its grip on radio listeners and is currently going all out to fortify and tighten further its monopolistic hold on presentations of the vintage era. That is a sphere in which the rival FM channels are woefully lacking – the field of old film music, classic non-film music and the rest of it.They have already increased the duration of ‘Bhoole bisre geet’ from half hour(7-7.30am) to one hour (6.30—7.30 am). Vividh Bharti is seeking the cooperation of possessors of vintage records in various ways. And I would say that this has impressed me but would like to add that if they properly balance their commercial ads with the programmes broadcast and ensure that there is no overlapping, no sacrifice of music at the cost of commercials then Vividh Bharti would certainly remain a matchless and unconquerable radio channel. Another suggestion in this regard is: Stop playing rubbish in the programme of old film songs. They seem to depend on new , young announcers to choose songs that were liked by their grand-parents. They almost invariably fail in this task in which Radio Ceylon excels even though its announcers belong to the younger generation.

I would therefore like Vividh Bharti to select a panel of very old radio listeners. They will be available in plenty in Mumbai. Let them do the selection of the best songs of the respective eras. If Vividh Bharti can go hunting for copies of old discs to different places and cities, why should it not seek expert advice from these very old lovers of music ? By leaving the selection matter to the whims and fancies of youngsters, some among whom cannot differentiate between melody and noise, the Vividh Bharti authorities could be moving on a suicidal course. Unbridled freedom to present Chaya Geets sometimes turns this programme into a cesspool of rejected memories for those who have been listening to the radio since the past several decades. Vividh Bharti cannot afford to squander away the vintage capital it has by leaving it into the hands of those whose knowledge and interest, abilities and initiatives, are confined to the narrow grooves of their personal likes and dislikes shaped by ignorance and inexperience, if not by bias and prejudice.

But Mahendra Modi, one of the top men looking after Vividh Bharti, should succeed in laying stress on research-oriented presentations rather than allowing their vintage treasures to be insulted and slighted by those who know not what they do.

I shared my views with Mahendra Modi,when he was in Allahabad the other day and would say that I got good response from him. Modi, formerly a programme executive, AIR Allahabad, and now Assistant Station Director, all-India Vividh Bharti service, Mumbai, was in Allahabad last week. I was pleasantly taken aback when he called at my place. He used to look after the Yuv Vani programme, English talks and also the Music section. I had known him quite closely. On a number of occasions he visited the Patrika office too, to meet the then editor Mr S.K.Bose and me. . If we assess the importance of a post with the popularity of the channel, then Modi could be the most important man – he is presumably acting as SD these days—because Vividh Bharti is undoubtedly the most popular radio channel in the country. You often listen to Modi replying to listeners’ letters in the ‘Patravali’ programme of Vividh Bharti.
Before Modi reached Vividh Bharti Mumbai, he had worked at several important stations of All India Radio. To his wonderful credit it can be said that he has maintained close contacts with the people of all the places where he was posted in the past. He has been increasing the stock of Vividh Bharti’s priceless heritage collections by meeting his former friends in different cities. And one big gain of it – of which we are already aware—was the acquisition of that rarest of the rare songs personally sung by Raj Kapoor in ‘Dil ki Rani’ ‘—kahan gaya chitchor’. This song was played on Raj Kapoor’s death anniversary. I congratulated him and told him that till now only Radio Ceylon had it. Modi told me that he got this from a listener in Rajasthan who had permitted them to make a copy of it.

The biggest surprise sprung on me by Modi was that Master Madan had cut about six or seven discs and not just one. The most popular among them was the one in which he had rendered those two gems, ‘Yun na reh reh kar hamen tarsaiye’ and ‘Hairat se tak raha hai jahan-e-wafa mujhe, tum ne bana diya hai muhabbat mein kya mujhe’ But I personally have two more of his songs on one disc—both thumris. However Modi told me that when he met a great collector of old records in Jodhpur, he contradicted Jagjit Singh’s statement that Master Madan had recorded only just two songs. Modi revealed that the Jodhpur music lover ‘showed me those discs and allowed us to make copies of it’. He said, ‘There are among those discs some ghazals which were subsequently sung by Ghulam Ali and others’. When I asked him when these would be broadcast, he said, ‘I have asked Kamal Sharma to present a special feature on him’. That I think will indeed be something great. Master Madan , I am told, was found dead in a train while travelling between Delhi and Lahore before the independence of the country.

After having listened to him I brought to his notice some of the drawbacks that I have noted. I told him, ‘When we send you letters to say that you have been making wrong announcements,. You do not take notice’. I told him, ‘You have been broadcasting that ‘Panchi kahe hot udas’ of Saigal is from the film ‘My Sister’ when that is not so.

It is a non-film song. The same holds true of ‘Duniya mein hoon duniya ka talabgar nahin hoon’ but the correction is not made’. I told him, ‘If we send such information to Radio Ceylon they immediately accept it and also broadcast it’. I gave him one instance about that memorable song from film ‘Ram Rajya, -- ‘Bina madhur madhur kachchu bol’. Radio Ceylon had been saying for decades that it was sung by Raj Kumarai. But when they were informed that the song was sung by Saraswati Rane, they immediately corrected the mistake. When we drew their attention to the fact that Rafi sings the extra line – the last line – in ‘Mere sapno ki rani’ song of film ‘Shah Jehan’ rendered in the lead by Saigal, Radio Ceylon immediately noted the fact and started announcing Rafi’s name. But Vividh Bharti fights shy of doing so even when Naushad had personalaly told the channel how Rafi forced him to give him a line to sing with the legendary singer.

I also told Modi: ‘Your announcers do not listen to a song. They read out what is mentioned there on th label’. I said, ‘While playing the song, ‘Do dilon ko ye duniya milnen nahin deti’ they say that the singers are Manju and Uma Devi. If you listen to the song it is only Manju’s voice that you hear.’ I told him,, ‘When your announcers present a special programme on Uma Devi, they say that she made her debut with film ‘Dard’ in 1947. If that be so, how could she have sung the song with Manju in film Chand which was released two or three years earlier ? ‘ I told him, ‘The same blunder they commit while playing the solo of Meena Klapoor, ‘Meri atariya pe kaaga bole mora jiya dole koin aa raha hai’ There is no second voice. Even so they club Uma Devi’s name with Meena Kapoor’.

Then I referred to the ‘Bhoole bisre geet’ and said : ‘Your announcers select the still-born songs of Rafi. They insult the great singer by picking such songs and playing them one after another’. I then gave him an example to stress the absurdity of all this: ‘Assuming that Doordarshan were presenting a documentary on Sunil Gavaskar. How odd it would seem if they were to select only those innings of his to telecast in which he had scored a zero ?’ I said, ‘The Rafi songs which they pick are of the ‘zero’ category. Why don’t they play Rafi’s songs from hundreds of hit numbers that he had recorded ?’ Modi liked the example I gave about Gavaskar and said, ‘I will narrate this to members of my staff’

I then referred to the ‘Chaya Geet’ programme. I told him, ‘Here again some of your announcers turn ‘Chhaya Geet’ into ‘Rafi ke geet’. I even gave the name of an announcer – probably some Tripathi. ‘The other day when I listened to Chaya Geet I found he played mostly Rafi’s songs’. I suggested, ‘They must give variety and include best songs of all top singers instead of just concentrating on one. Not all would like to hear just one singer no matter how much they adore him’ Mahendra Modi said, ‘You know, in Chaya Geet programme we do not interfere. The announcer playing the songs is given full freedom to make his choice.’ I told Modi, ‘Well if that is the norm, I will not ask you to change it. But you can certainly change the announcer if not his choice and select such an announcer who will realize that he is presenting the programmen not to himself but to the entire country’. I praised Kamal Sharma’s recent ‘Chaya Geet’ . It was more broad-based. Yhe best presentation is that where the announcer does not give away his favorite choice. The stress should be on good songs irrespective of the singer. Modi smiled. Woud you believe it ? He looked as young and handsome – may be more smart – as he looked when he was here decades ago?

I complimented Modiji for introducing Saigal’s song as the last number daily towards the end of their ‘Bhoole bisre geet’ programme. I told him, ‘If you remember you brought about this change and you did so on my request’. He smiled and said, ‘Yes, I do’. But I told him, ‘Very often when Saigal’s immoprtal gems are being played, you cut short the song as the time is up. That gives a big jolt to Saigal fans’. I told him, ‘When a less popular song of Saigal is being played, like the one from film Omar Khayyam, the whole song is played even though it is on two sides. But when ‘Ai qatib-e-taqdeer’ is on, the axe falls. Can’t you ask them to cut short a previous number but not Saigal because many listeners reach their radio sets closer to listen to the golden voice of the great singer.


Modi did give me technical reasons for this.But if we can reach the moon, why can’t we overcome these technical lapses ? But the thorough gentleman that he is, he agreed that this should not happen.

There were lots of other things that we discussed. He had actually called at Raja Zutshi’s residence and from there contacted me on phone to ask whether he could meet me for five minutes. ‘By all meanjs’ I told him. How those five minutes turnedb into 55 minutes I cannot say. But I am quite sure of one thing. That if AIR has such hardworking and enthusiastic officers who love their profession and work most sincerely and dedicatedly. the Radio will live. And if Modi starts the tradition of meeting the people and being responsive to their criticisms and suggestions there is every reason to hope that All India Radio will recover from the setback that it has suffered at the hands of callous and indifferent producers and heartless station directors who have murdered the body and soul of broadcasting and set it aflame on the pyre of commercialism. When the broadcasting was in its infancy broadcasters used to run all over the country bringing to the radio such gems as are remembered till today. But when technology took AIR to great heights the programming collapsed. It came crashing down. We need men like Mahendra Modi to rescue broadcasting from the jaws of death – for death is certain if radio does not mend itself and pumps money to improve the broadcasting system. They have air-conditioned cars to move about but the studios are not getting talent any more because they cannot pay them. How can they if money is diverted to the purchase of Acs and cars and providing posh accommodation for good-for-nothing bosses - the exceptions only proving the rule?

Vividh Bharati: Connecting a nation with music and memories for 50 yrs

Mumbai, October 2 From the Jaisalmer border, soldiers have written to us…they brave the scorching sun and hot winds to protect our borders. In those trying climatic conditions, there is something else they protect just as fiercely—their transistors. They will bake in the sun, but keep their transistors in the shade because if that heats up, they can’t tune in to Vividh Bharati,” said a proud Assistant Station Director Mahendra Modi.

That’s not surprising—for in 1999, at the peak of the Kargil War, it was Vividh Bharati that connected soldiers with their families across the country, through a special programme “Hello Kargil”.

And it’s a proud moment for Modi—he has been with the All India Radio for four decades now—and his team at the Vividh Bharati Service in Borivili as they gear up to celebrate Wednesday, the day this very popular service of AIR completes 50 years. For, it is from this building opposite the Gorai bus depot that programmes synonymous with the radio channel—like ‘Bhule Bisre Geet’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’, ‘Hawa Mahal’, ‘Jaimala’ etc—are centrally produced and uplinked to satellite, to be dished out to 40 Vividh Bharati stations across the country.

In Mumbai, a team led by Modi has been tirelessly working for the last two months to ring in the golden jubilee celebrations. A string of special programmes, each lasting two hours, has been planned through the day. So, from 6 am on Wednesday, until 11 pm, listeners can get nostalgic with legends like Sohrab Modi, Meena Kumari, Nargis, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand.

“We will be playing recorded excerpts from interviews conducted since inception. Also, there will be four broad categories—rare film songs, rare non-film songs, rare singers and legendary music directors,” said Yunus Khan from Modi’s team. Congratulatory messages from a number of celebrities—including Lata Mangeshkar, Javed Akhtar, Sunidhi Chauhan, Abhijeet, Shaan, etc—will be aired.

“Esteemed veteran broadcasters like Madhup Sharma, Ramsingh Pawar and Mona Thakur will also be invited,” Modi added. Of course, the festivities wouldn’t be complete without Ameen Sayani’s britone—he will be hosting ‘Star Jaimala’ that day, which is being produced and written by Lokendra Sharma.

It was wonderful listening to the soothing music both filmy and classical as well as sometimes the western music when I was a child. The nostalgia haunts (I am sorry if it sounds a bit negative) today despite the 200 and odd channels in several languages and dozens of music channels. THey are by no menas to any competition to millions of us (me too coz I travel a alot and when I go to interiors it is the Radio thats with me always) in the remote interiors of India. Its not just Song and dance but more to it, theres a lot of family planning, govt schemes that affect the common man and BBC works close to VBon several fronts. Its won some good awards too. There used to be the Radio Ceylone that heart throb for all of us on Short wave but not after we had our very own Vividh bharathi.

Vividh bharathi has a boquet of programmes to celebrate the golden jubilee celebrations.

Radio aficionados were transported to the sepia era of Hindi cinema when Vividh Bharati (VB) dipped into its archives and relayed excerpts from Jaymala, a popular music programme, to commemorate its 50th anniversary.
The list of film personalities who have down the decades resented 'Jaymala', a radio show for army jawans, is endless and VB, All India Radio's nation-wide radio network, celebrated its birthday by offering a bouquet of 'Jaymala' sound-bytes to its 22 crore listeners across India.


The suburban station of VB wore a festive look. Staffers, in their traditional finery, and veteran radio jockeys celebrated the event with 'laddoos' and a hearty meal. Assistant station director Mahendra Modi supervised the birthday bash.
Said Vijay Dixit, deputy director, VB, "Our radio network has cemented India's cultural ties with music as the adhesive. Now, we want to blend FM technology with the cultural values which VB cherishes.'' (

Here is more...

When Delhi was in crisis, it was the radio that helped them connect with
lost ones. When the leaders marched on with their soul-stirring speeches, it
was these waves that turned electric. They silenced a nation when India had
a tryst with destiny. The air filled with a thunderours applause when India
beat Pakistan. And the frequency tuned in with our hearts when Lata
Mangeshkar sang her ode to the country. All India Radio's Vividh Bharati has
come a long way, in connecting people, listening to them, talking to them,
being there for them. Are you tuned in?

VIVIDH BHARATHI, remain's the best!

By: teena_sri Oct 03, 2005 03:24 PM 
VIVIDH BHARATI (102.90 mhZ) is one of the oldest radio stations, and the only one which has been coming from so long and yet it has still maintained its overall quality. There is lot of variety 
of programn on VIVIDH BHARATHI, there is something for everyone, young or old.

From the time I have been listening to VIVIDH BHARATHI, I have been addicted to it, infact it won’t be an exaggeration to say that I associate RADIO with VIVIDH BHARATHI! It was because of VB that I bought a all new radio\transister long time back.

I feel listening to radio has its own charm, and if you really start enjoying it, you would feel that there is no better friend than the radio, it stays with you all the time and also entertains you and brings a smile to your face. There was a time when AMIN SAYANI used to host a programn on VB called BINACA GEET MALA, where he used to tell about the 25 hit songs ruling the charts at that time, and it was such a popular programme (can call the KBC of those times) that everybody used to listen to it, without fail.

How I started listening to VB: Well when I was a kid, Ii used to see all my cousins listening to it, in their free times, at that time I use to find it boring, but eventually when I started appreciating music, I started liking the programmes, and the music which was played on it. And than there came a time when I was so fascinated BY VB,that it kind of became my constant companion.

Why I love VB SO MUCH...I feel there is a kind of old world charm to it, there is so much simplicity in its presentation and also that they have got the best collection of old songs, which makes me love this RADIO STATION(its unadulterated entertainment). Also I get to listen very good hindi\urdu in the programnes of VB....................as it is a purely hindi RS, for the masses. Everyone from a poor man can enjoy it.That is the beauty of VIVIDH BHARATHI, has not changed all this while, even with the coming of these modern radio station.

Host, of VIVIDH BHARATHI are also very good. There is certain warmth and lovable quality which makes you connect with them. They also address their viewers in a very friendly way.

I like a lot of the host on VB, but my all time favourite is amin sayani, he has a unique way of speaking, has great knowlede about music....................and has a brilliant voice, great diction and pronunciation, which is so important for radio jockey’S.

Nimmi Mishra is also very good............she presents Chaya geet well.

What I also love about vividh bharathi IS THAT THEY have a programn for all occasions, like DIWALI, HOLI, RAKSHA BANDHAN, REPUBLIC DAY, SHIVRATRI, CHRISTMAS.

They will also play beautiful songs for these festivals. Like I live in Bangalore, where most of these festivals are not celebrated, so VB keeps me connected to all these festivals, and I feel kind of at home when I listen to their special presentation. Also there are some prorammes on VB, which are very knowledgeable, they educate you - like sometimes they will invite a doctor or some specialist who will tell you about something which you may not be knowing.

Now coming to the progrmmes. They have a set of some of the best progrmnes on RADIO.FAUZI BHAIYYO KE LIYE, TRIVENI, CHAYAGEET, HAWA MAHAL, SAKHI SAHELI, HELLO FARMAISH, AAP KI FARMAISH, PATRAVALLI, MANTHAN. All are great to listen. This is what I call variety. And here I have only listed my favourite programmes, there are a lot other programmes too.

So overall VIVIDH BHARATHI is a great RADIO STATION and should be listened by all, coz it provides unlimited entertainment. And I don’t feel that VB cannot be listened by the young people, when there are so many FM radio stations, even I am young but still I enjoy it, coz I feel that heir quality is second to none. And if you love old hindi songs, you will not get to listen better collection than what is played on VB.

Teena, 

That was an excellent review and a nostalgic one too. I still love to listen to Vividh Bharati. Ofcourse many of the earlier programs have been modified or no longer there, and some of the anchors have changed. But the old world charm still exists. Programs like Chayageet and Jaymala are so endearing. 

BTW, I think Binaca Geet Mala was first aired on Radio Ceylon for many years. It was only in the late 80s that Ameen Sayani brought in on VB for about a year before winding up.

All i remember is Amin Sayani’s voice and Hawa Mahal’s Title Music. 
It was damn good days. I dont know if any of those still continue or not. 
let me tell you one more thing, My mom used to sing for them way back in 1970’s when I was not even born. 
At that time they use to have live songs wherein you can request and one of these ladies will sing that song for you.

Still VB is better than any FM!! In FM the hosts talk so much and so loudly and in very tapori Hindi language , we have to change to V.B. 
Binaca Geetmala was from Radio CeyloneVividh Bharati had lovely progrrammes like;Badlte Saathi;( 9 PM on Friday) Jaimala(7 PM); FaujiBhai (Sat.7 PM); Hawa Mahel etc.. 
It is a nice review!!
By venurajagopal | Oct 04, 2005 11:54 AM
Your review is simple and very esoterical. 
For a few things we get addicted and vivid bharati is one of them. 
you can not dispense with radio; no, ..never. 
According to a survey it became clear that radio audiece is far more in number than TV viewers even today. 
But I notice that the younger generation , the present day net surfers and Ipod guys do not know much about vivid bharathi. 

Venuraja Gopal.

That was a terrific reivew. You made me nostalgic. I remember, my sister and I used to fight for radio in the morning to listen to Chitralok. Monday evenings 8:00 pm, all of our attention was focused on Sibaca Geet Mala and of course, Chhaya Geet at night.. :) See its been years yet I remember even the timings... lol... 

You took me more than a decade back.. 

Too good

Binaca Geet Mala was not on VB but on Ceylon. I think it was only for some time in VB but it did not do well in VB as compared to Ceylon.
