Munna Bada Piyara Ammi Ka Dulara
Lyrics & Chords
This is probably the first song I ever heard and remember so dearly. My Mother used to sing it for me. I must have sung this melody hundreds of times for children in the family, my own children and even my two cute Poms, one of which only gets calmed when I sing or play this melody to him. I only remembered the Mukhda and the Aam-Roti concept in this song but the rest I would come up with my own lyrics for various occasions. During my lifetime of music I was always fascinated by some songs which I later discovered that they were Salilda’s music. I always thought this song to be a Rafi song but only a few years ago I found that it was actually sung by Kishore Kumar. After getting the track for this song I had to get the lyrics and discovered that it too was Salilda’s music. No wonder why I was so fascinated with his kind of music. His music style was embedded into my memories.
I am not imitating for a child as Kishore did in one of the lines. He was singing in the movie for a child not yet born but I heard it directly from my Mother, and why would she imitate me if she was singing it to me…Lol. I have kept the style that I always remembered.
I would also like to share that I have witnessed at age 5-6 the Angheeti/Phoonkni thing in my Mother’s kitchen where she would cook food and Chapati’s and I would sit beside her on a wooden Patri and blow the Phoonkni. That was such an achievement for me to see fire build-up. I am sure folks my age would know what I am talking about. I am so happy that this track has that Phoonkni sound played in the repetition of 1st line of the 1st Antara. I Hope I bring back some childhood memories among friends with this song.
