It was summer time of year 2012. In my consulting room some or the other light music is continuously played. One grandparent came with his four year old son to show me. He listened to the old songs. After showing to his grandson he got up and was about to leave the room. That time he told that I and my few friends have collectively formed a club and we get together on every Saturday to listen to the best of the old songs. So if you wish you also can join us. He explained me where I have to come on the coming Saturday and left. Because of some reason I could not go on that Saturday. But after that I started receiving the CD of old songs that he and his friends had listened on Saturday. Without my attendance and presence I started getting marvelous
collection of wonderful Hindi movie songs which were based on different-different themes. There were patriotic songs, devotional songs, and songs for children, songs on joint family and also themes were based on various singers. Here, I wish to tell my readers about the wonderful social message that we get from songs that are pictured on the little children. If we show these songs to our children then they would definitely learn certain things which are important for good living. Also they would get fun, enjoyment and merriment.
*NANHE MUNNE BACHHE TERI MUTHI MEIN…… . This song is taken from the movie `BOOT POLISH’ and gives message that even if we get pearl by begging, we will never accept it. We want to earn by hard work and not begging. Even in difficult times we get tears that look like pearl, we will accept it and will work harder.
*CHUN-CHUN KARTI AAYI CHIDIYA is from the movie “AB DELHI DOOR NAHI” released in 1957. In this song it is showcased that children have strong bonding with animals. Today also this song is one of the favorite songs for kids’ animation.
