Music & Arts in erstwhile Hyderabad - Deccan: Ghulam Mohammad - in Naushads words

Vikas Zutshi's insight:



Ghaulam Mohd & Naushad - 1949

Ghulam Mohammad was senior to me both in age and profession  , yet he accepted me as his Ustad . It is indeed His Greatness - Naushad




Many articles were published on music director Late Ghulam Mohammad , but this one by Naushad covers a lot more than others . Naushad was contributing articles about his biography some time in late 1970's for the Shama magazine . The following is a compilation and translation from his articles published in Urdu

I hope the readers would like to read many things unknown to them about the great composer Ghulam Mohammad .

______________________________________________________

The year was 1937 . I started working for Ustad Jhande Khan Saheb as a pianist on a monthly salary of Rs 40 / . Ghulam Mohammad was working as a table player on a monthly salary of Rs 60 / . After that assignment Jhande Khan Saheb had no films on hand and so we got separated .

 I found him to be an amazing table player . He belonged to Bikaneer and came from a family of repute musicians . Both his parents as well as his in-laws were attached to stage .  Before and after moving to Bombay all of them acted on stage for a living . Later Ghulam Mohammad acquired great mastery over the table and earned a big name as a table player . 

!938 - I was working with Music Director Mushtaq Hussain . Ezra Mir was producing a filmSitara starring Khursheed as heroine . He  invited Mushtaq Hussain Saheb and finalised the deal for the music of film Sitara . Rafiq Ghaznavi was a very big name in those days . It is believed that he approached Ezra Mir later that day and things changed for us over night . Ezra Mir had replaced Rafiq Saheb in place of Mushtaq Hussain . As agreed Mushtaq Hussain along with me  reached the studios only to be told that we have to go back . As we were getting down the stairs I saw Ghulam Mohammad following the team of musicians with Rafiq Ghaznavi . We both met halfway on the stairs to greet each other .

1942 - My music as an independent music director was appreciated for the films Premnagar , Mala & Darshan . AR Kardar had invited me to join Kardar Productions . I was hesitant in the beginning but , at the insistence of my friend SU Sunny I joined Kardar Productions  . GM Durrani was my assistant for the film Nai Duniya .


Ghulam Mohammad first joined me as a tabla player and later became my assistant . He was am amazing tabla and dholak maestro . I always felt that he should take independent assignments as a music director which he rightly deserved .

Ghulam Mohammad's first film as an independent music director was Doli - 1947 . It was me who assured PN Arora Saheb that Ghulam Mohd was an efficient person capable of scoring music on his own . I always wanted to see him grow and take up independent assignments . I was present along with Ghulam Mohammad at the recording sessions of film Doli . He composed and conducted the score , my presence was purely for a moral support . After this he scored music for some more movies produced by PN Arora . Here I make this point very clear that I always wished to see him as an independent composer , which he rightly deserved  . I did not do any favor by recommending his name to PN Arora . Ghulam Mohammad was  senior to me both in age and profession . I always followed on his suggestions and was always successful .

 Ghulam Mohammad's younger brother Abdul Karim was an excellent tabla and dholakplayer . He worked for me after his brother took charge of composing his own films . I can tell with utmost confidence that there was hardly any tabla players in the film industry who could match these two brothers , every tabla and dholak player must have inspired by these two brothers and learnt lot of techniques from them .

Mohammad Ibrahim was the second brother . He was an excellent harmonium player . He worked with me for a long time . He had excellent knowledge of music and his advise was always helpful in composing music . Mohammad Ibrahim is not with us today .

When Sohrab Modi approached me for the music of film  Mirza Ghalib I recommended Ghulam Mohd's name and assured Modi Saheb that he would deliver a better music than me . I used to be present at the recordings of film Mirza Ghalib as a moral support . He used to carry on every thing for himself . My presence was some thing of a confidence to him .

When Kamal Amrohi commenced his movie Pakeezah he approached me for scoring the music . I told him that I am already busy with a movie and I do not accept any movie until I complete it . I recommeded Ghulam Mohammad and assured him that he would do a better job . If , however , you at any stage feel that some thing was lacking I shall be always there to help you . Kamal Amrohi honored my suggestion and engaged Ghulam Mohammad for film Pakeezah .

Film Pakeezah was started as a black& white movie , later it was decided to shoot in colorand at last it was both color and cinema scope . From time to time many songs were recorded and many discarded . Many of the songs were recorded in our ( SU Sunny Partners) Rang Mahal Studios . I was always present at these recording sessions . When Ghulam Mohammad suffered a heart attack I extended what ever support and help he needed during the completion of the songs and recordings .

A number of songs based on classical music were recorded for the film Pakeezah . It was in the voice of a classicalist from from Jaipur . None of them were included in the movie . Many filmi style songs including a large section of popular song ' chalo dildaar chalo chaand ke paar chalo ' was not included in the movie . 

Ghulam Mohammad passed away before the movie could be completed . After the completion of the movie Kamal Amrohi approached me and said ' I have come to remind you the promise you had made years ago . The film is ready and you can score the background music ' - - - - - - - -

It took two and a half months for me to complete the background score . I told Kamal Saheb not to include my name in the titles of music but , he did not listen , he was very adamant .


Ghulam Mohd was not only a good tabla and dholak player but , he was  good at singing and dancing . His association with me lasted for nearly 20 years , first as a tabla player and later as an assistant . It was his greatness that he not only accepted me as an Ustad but loved me with his deep heart . On the contrary it should have been the other way round , his knowledge was remarkable . I accept with my whole heart that he was more knowledgeable than me and played a significant role in mending my career .


Late Ghulam Mohd was a devotee of  an elderly Sufi Haji Wali Mohammad Saheb of Bombay . He was known to many as Barrister . Haji Saheb was an elderly Sufi absorbed in meditation . Ghulam Mohd used to visit him on thursdays and play dholak during the qawwalisession . After the qawwali , there used to be a session of discourse during which Haji Sahebused to say ' Ghulam Mohammad your dholak will go to heaven ' Haji Saheb's tomb is located in in the Sonapur graveyard of Bombay . Ghulam Mohammad was given a holy bath at the premises of Haji Saheb's Durgah and was buried close to Haji Saheb's tomb . 

Ghulam Mohammad used to live in Play House area of Bombay . On my suggestion he purchased land in Pali Hill  and constructed a four room house on the ground floor . Later he constructed the second floor and gave it on rent . After years of struggle he was able to get the premises vacated . The entire house was used for their living .

Ghulam Mohammad's eldest son Mumtaz Mohammad leads a life of an ascetic .Mohammad Aziz is a good tabla player like his father . Iqbal Ahmed another son is in the field of music and currently composing music for Tajdar Amrohis film ' Ek number ka chor "

Ghulam Mohammad was a deeply religious person . He was very regular in matters of prayer and fasting during the Ramzan . On fridays we both used to offer namaaz at the Bandra Jama Masjid .
He was a very sentimental person , while composing a song if he was inspired by a particular raag he used to cry and make me cry .

Ghulam Mohammad passed away before the release of film Pakeezah . His brother Abdul Karim met me at the premier of the movie . Tears were flowing uncontrollably from his eyes when he told me ' how happy my brother would have felt had he seen his success with his own eyes ' Abdul Karim left playing tabla and dholak for movies and became an ascetic .

The passing away of Ghulam Mohammad left me in void . I feel very lonely . May God bless him with heavenly bliss .
