ભાઇલાલ શાહ વિષે!

મારા નાનાજી- ભાઇલાલ શાહ , કે જેમણે 1925 – 2003 સુધી સી.એન. વિદ્યાલયને ચિર- સંગિની બનાવી હતી, એટલે કે તેમણે શિક્ષણ પણ આ જ શાળામાંથી લીધું હતું અને પછી આ જ શાળામાં સંગીત શિક્ષક તરીકે આજીવન યોગદાન આપ્યું હતું. જેમાં તેમણે સંગીત રચનાકાર, સંકલન, લેખન( તેમણે લખેલાં વિદ્યાવિહાર સંગીતમાલાનાં પુસ્તકો આજે પણ શાળાના સંગીત વિભાગમાં અને વિદ્યાર્થીઓમાં પ્રચલિત છે) અને 1980-85 ના ગાળામાં અમદાવાદ આકાશવાણી અને અમદાવાદ દૂરદર્શનનાં શાસ્ત્રિય સંગીતનાં કાર્યક્રમોમાં પણ અગત્યની ભૂમિકા ભજવી હતી. તેઓ સંગીતકાર ઉપરાંત હાર્મોનિયમ,વાયોલીન,વીણા, સિતાર, તબલાંમાં પણ નીપૂણ હતાં.

કમનસીબે એ હવે આપણી વચ્ચે નથી..પણ એમનાં ગીતો અને મને કહેલી સી.એન., સ્નેહરશ્મિ , ઝવેરચંદ મેઘાણી, ગાંધી અને ખાદીની વાતો મારી પાસે છે …. એના જ ભાગ રુપે આ બ્લોગ ગુજરાતી નેટ જગતમાં વહેતો મુકૂં છું….

4. himanshu. - October 15, 2007

Hi! Mehul,I am Himanshu muni from mumbai.I am 65 years old and has been surfing internet generally for fun,information etc.The real reason is that my sons-two are in the u.s.a.so,we communcate through this,and off course use voip for telephonic communications.I read about your nanaji and your school.It reminded me of my school days.(1953-60)I write here breifly & hope you feel the resonance.Amulakh Amichand Multipurpouse school had Shri Parashar Desai(uncle of Ashish etc.) as music teacher.He prefered to be so otherwise he had B.Sc.& could have taught other subjects.Every saturday he would sing preyers.On other days students would do so.In addition records were played.The artist were like M.S.Subbulaxmi,Rafi(Baiju Bawra),Hemantkumar(Anand Ashram)etc.It is indeed comandable that you give some much time to revive.Ihave recently started reading gujarati on internet and enjoy very much.Some years down the line,those who put up their own creations will be better known.I wish you all round and balanced growth and enriched life in every repect.Thanks and bye.

HIMANSHU,

I am Bharat Shah, 65 years old, class of ’62 from AABVV. I wanted to know about Parasharbhai & I came across this mail. Apart from what you mentioned, two prayers,” Jeevansagar Ghat Re Mane Kon batave Vaat Re….” and ” Prabhu Hun To Bhali Bhali Ne Munzavu”, still rings in my ears.
Mehul, Thanks. My father,92, had studied in CN & your Nanaji was one year junior to him. He says that your Nanaji’s voice was extremely good.He remembers him fondly.

5. kishor shah - July 4, 2008

Mehul:
I was surfing internet and found your site while looking for a Gujarati song. Well, it brought back some old memories. I am 55 years old and attended CN for 2 years (1968-69) and passed SSC in ’69. I still remember going to the prathana hall and your Nanaji’s music. I did not have any personal contact with him but I could tell he was a kind soul.

mehul,

tu ze great ho yaar. I left CN after my 12th in 1986. I live in USA. I was looking for some songs. Type lots of way. hoping to find them here. I did remember “bhailalbhai” very good. he had taught us music at that time. frankly, I was not into music at that time than playing. “Aapde rakhadva and tofan ma expert”. but now i realize, I missed a lot of sweet music. so, I was trying to find it online and come accross this site. Excellent work. this remind me my CN a lot.

Dear Mehul
great site !
I was fortunate to learn music from Bhailalbhai saheb in sangit udyog from 1974 to 1979.He is one of the best teachers I have come across.His style of teaching, simplisity & melodious songs still linger in our memory.
When Indumatiben died he sung very famous song “jyare a deh manhi deve didhelu ayakhnu khute” Remembering that song still bring tears to the eyes.
Thanks for bringing us back to the golden time of our childhood

19. Bharat Shah - November 11, 2011

Anandbhai,

In my earlier mail I had written about Jeevan Sagar Ghat re, as this was our prayer in Amulakh school in Mumbai…
The wordings as I remember are
“Jeevan Sagar Ghat re mane Kon Batave wat re. mane kon batave wat.. re mane kon batave wat.. Din uge din athme ne athme suraj som, Van khutyo muj panth padyo chhe, kya chhe tari bhom, re mane kon Batave, kon batave wat.. Saa. Dh ni re ni re saa ma dh ni saa…

I am trying to recall second stanza but cannot remember it, but if recall will write. my phone is 9323782033.
