Here is a song as a tribute to Goddess Shakti on Navaratri, sung by Shanta Apte in Savithri (1941): Karunaiyai Arulvai Devi

The film had a lot of devotional songs to the mother Goddess, some other songs will be uploaded soon.

Another lovely Shanta Apte song, in Marathi: Jaya Devi Mangalagauri. The film is the 1937 blockbuster Kunku/Duniya Na Mane (Hindi remake).

Om Shakti!

Here is a song as a tribute to the father of our India, Mahatma Gandhiji, on his birthday (Gandhi Jayanti):

Saare Duniya Ke Sartaj Tera Amar Rahega Raaj by Shamshad Begum (on Mumtaz Shanti) and Meena Kapoor (on another Noor Jehan – NOT MADAM NOOR JEHAN)

Film: Ghar Ki Izzat (1948)

Music by Pandit Gobindram

Enjoy!

Here is the lovely version of the Gujarati Narsi Bhajan “Vaishnava Jana To” by Kannada Kokila AKA nightingale of Karnataka Amirbai Karnataki. Gandhiji was himself a fan of the song.

This rare gem may be from Vishnu Bhakti (1934), Amirbai’s first film, that too as a singer-actress!

Three cheers for the immortal Mahatma Gandhiji!
