Bangladeshi Singer Bashir Ahmad 1940

Bashir Ahmad is a Bangladeshi origin playback singer for Lollywood. He is famously known as East Pakistan's (now Bangladesh) Ahmed Rushdi because his singing style is inspired by Ahmed Rushdi. Born in India, he migrated to Bangladesh and started his singing career. He got popularity when he sang playback hits in Pakistani films.

Bashir Ahmad was born in Calcutta (Kolkata now) in 1940. He was crazy about music, and was accepted as a pupil by Ustad Vilayat Hussain at the age of 15. Later, he came to Bombay, and became a student of Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. He got lots of encouragement from him. In 1960, Bashir Ahmad migrated to Dhaka.

In Dhaka, his mentor and brother-in-law, Ishrat Kalkatvi introduced him to Robin Ghosh. Ishrat was writing songs for film Talash, although eventually, Suroor Barabankvi contributed more songs to the film. Robin Ghosh was making tunes for the film, and he gave Bashir Ahmed a chance to prove himself. Bashir Ahmed sang some numbers for Talash, including soft romantic one, titled Kuch apni kahiyye kuch meri sunyey, yeh sham yeh tanhai youn chup to na rehiyye. Bashir sang another most famous song, Main rickshawalla matwala, which those who have listened to it can never forget. He had two other songs in the film, both duets. With such a famous beginning, he was sure to stay on. Bashir was also a poet and a lyricist, with a pseudonym B.A Deep. Film-maker, Mustafiz, they contacted Bashir and asked him to write a song for his film, Saagar, which he did, titled Ja dekha pyar tera, and sang it too. Similarly in Robin Ghosh's another lilting offering, Karwan, in 1964, Bashir wrote and sang a memorable hit, Jab tum akele ho gay hum yaad aaein gay , which used to be played quite often during the sixties on Radio Pakistan. So, he wrote film songs, as B. A. Deep, and also continued to sing as Bashir Ahmed for films like Saagar, Karwan, Eindhan, Milan, Kangan and Darshan. He won a lot of approval from the West Pakistan too at that time, for those songs in Darshan. The hits from the films were Yeh sama pyara pyara, yeh hawaein thandi thandi (singer Mala), (Yeh mausam yeh mast nazarey, pyar karo to in say karo), (Tumharay liyay iss dil mein itne mohabbat hay, itne mohabbat kon karaya ga kahaan pao gay kis dil main ho ge), (Din raat khayalon mein tujhay yaad karoon ga, par naam tera lay kay main aawaz nah doon ga), (Hum chaley chor kar teri mehfil sanam, dil kahin nah kahin to behal jaey ga), (Gulshan mein baharun mein too hai) and (Chun liya ik phool ku), with Madam Noor Jahan.

In 1971, when the situation worsened in Pakistan. Unfortunately, he was not encouraged in the industry as music directors considered him a pale version of Ahmed Rushdi (who remained the greatest singer in the history of Pakistani cinema) and the film Hill Station songs, namely Mera dil na janey kub say tera pyar dhoondta hai and Mere seene per sar rakhdo remain his only contributions in this period. A film that was made on the Dhaka Debacle in the late70s, called Sangtarash, also included his numbers, namely Bol zara kuch duniya walay and Mukhrey mein chand, but the film, despite pleadings of the film-maker to the military regime of Zia, remained unreleased. So, he went back to Bangladesh in 1975, and sings only private songs in functions now.

Bashir Ahmad, indeed, was a man of talent, which very few possess, having the qualities of being a good lyricist, an able music composer, a nice singer, but he did not achieve the rank, he in fact deserved.

Monday Horoscope September 19

Aries  March 21-April 19 You could be most persuasive with others, and expressive in your speech. If you are in the sales profession you will find this day a productive one. This is also a great time to work in groups. You have new ideas and the freedom to put them to work for you. There is a successful outcome on the horizon. You may have been thinking about involving yourself in some humanitarian group--perhaps as simple as Greenpeace. Now is a good time to pursue these extraordinary avenues. Some of your friends may have had those same desires and in your communications today you may gain some focus along this line. Family members are all scattered this evening. Relax and just enjoy the evening. This is a good day.

Virgo  August 23-September 22 Sometimes you ask too many questions--sometimes you do not ask enough. Today will be a great day to learn the difference--listen carefully. This point-of-knowing may come through a book, another person's rendition of an experience or your own experience in a legal matter. Not to worry, you will not suffer any ill effects. You radiate much energy and you enjoy working within groups today. You put forth great effort to provide information to those that do not seem to have any idea of how to do research. You just may have to accept the fact that people like to feel your warmth.

Cancer  June 22-July 22 A burdensome business project finally comes to an end--never fear, there are better projects on the horizon. Your intuition is strong now and can guide you accurately in making forecasts or decisions. Your sensitivity makes you recoil from aggressive types. Circumstances, however, can throw you into positions where you must use your mind and deal with communications, service or enclosed hidden interests. You may deal with education, psychology, spiritual enlightenment or teaching principles and techniques. Your artistic talents are showing, especially while teaching young people this afternoon. Your imagination is crucial to your functioning. This evening is a good time for surrounding yourself with friends and young people.

Leo  July 23-August 22 An important relationship, perhaps with an older person or someone in authority, may come into focus today. It may be hard to concentrate on the business-world issues.

You may find that both your personal growth and your career may depend upon how you can handle the very sensitive psychological material coming up now. You will benefit from analytical insights.

Libra  September 23-October 23 You seem to shine when it comes to practical matters or those involving work and career. You have an easy way with superiors or those in authority and can always manage to get the most out of any skill or ability you have. Use your talent for seeing both sides of a situation and present the pros and cons throughout the process of a meeting, lecture, etc., perhaps a few charts as well. You may be combining art with work these days . . . you certainly like your work and hobby or art combined. Any problems today are valued for the lessons they represent, rather than perceived as obstacles. Budgeting, investments and all that brings profit are on your mind now. A loved one comes on strong this evening and a new experience can be enjoyed.

Scorpio  October 24-November 21 You are at your mental best with sharp ideas and clear thoughts. You will be successful in your attempt to make decisions and take care of mental work. Your fine verbal skills and a natural sense of justice make legal work a distinct possibility. Working with laws, natural or man-made, amounts to a real talent. You are able to guide superiors through some sensitive situations today. You also have a great interest in ideas; the closer they are to positive results the more impressive. You discover the true feelings of another this evening and decide it is time to move forward with your own ideas. This is a full day with much communication. You spend time in clearing away the clutter this afternoon. You enjoy working with your mind and easily find quick solutions.

Sagittarius  November 22-December 21 You would be wise to be patient and tread a little lightly when it comes to indulgence and overextending yourself. Things could be tight. Your career and life direction are putting some real pressure on your home and emotional life. Obviously you cannot live without both, so some kind of self-control on your part is indicated. You may have trouble with subordinates or young people in the workplace today. This may mean dealing with the public or dealing with new employees that have a lot of questions. Self-sacrifice and an understanding attitude on your part, however, could have far-reaching effects on your own life-path and career. Planning a family outing for this upcoming weekend could be fun, and a good move.

Capricorn  December 22-January 19 Mental patterns and communication skills play a major role in your life today--they can change things forever. Make sure you develop your highest potential in these areas. A new co-worker may misunderstand or a co-worker friend may be difficult to get along with today. Step back and see the situation differently . . . look at the bigger picture. Don't assume anything, just be patient and wait this one out. All we become clear in time and your work will not suffer.

If you find interruptions exasperating, you may want to put a note on your desk that says, WORKING . . . PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE. The word for your feelings now is achievement. If there is a job, you can do it! You pour yourself into any task with absolute determination. You are organized and able to take care of business. Sprinkle your conversations with your sense of humor this evening. Loved ones will respond in like form. You may find yourself returning a favor later this evening: taking care of children, running errands. New information about improving your health is available now.

Pisces  February 19-March 20 There is an instinctive need to be powerful and in control this day. Be careful that you do not become too pushy right now--things may not happen on your time schedule. Pay attention to your intuition; a hunch could lead you into some very positive places, with answers to difficult work problems never thought of before now. Your increasing inner confidence helps you emerge from a time of self-doubt into a time of trust and dependence regarding your own choices. Affirm to yourself often: you deserve, and are grateful for, the prosperity and perhaps the abundance that comes your way. This evening your sense of practicality is strong and you feel loving and relaxed with your loved ones. There is chatter about an upcoming social party.
