 Sheltering Melody
Rajiv Vijayakar
His name means 'shelters', as in plural, for the community. Quite aptly, Khayyam's work has been like a melodic shelter for those for whom a song must primarily soothe the senses. The veteran composer entered his 80th year on February 18 and his funda of living a simple, religious life and not lusting for lucre has not only ensured contentment and happiness but has bestowed a strange youth on him - for Khayyam does not look a day above 55! And that's the approximate number of films he has done since the late '40s, averaging less than a film a year!
The man behind musical landmarks like Footpath, Phir Subah Hogi, Kabhi Kabhie, Umrao Jaan and Razia Sultan, mega-serials like The Great Maratha, Dard, Sunehre Warq and Jai Hanuman, and several non-film albums has no negativity towards anyone, least of all the new singers and composers. A philosopher to the core, he considers himself lucky at work and in life, and feels that the many honours, distinctions and awards he has received are primarily due to the unstinting support of his wife, the famous singer Jagjit Kaur ,and the blessings of his musical gurus, Pandit Amarnath, Husnlal and Bhagatram.
Looking around a simple music room studded with a mandir, a frame of Guru Nanak, the Granth Sahib and the Holy Bible as well as the religious emblems of Islam, Mohammed Zahoor Khayyam Hashmi, popularly known as Khayyam, says with a smile, "We conduct aarti twice a day, do our daily pooja, recite from the Quran and the Granth Sahib and kiss the Holy Bible. The positive vibrations from this room spread to my entire household." Screen meets up with the low-profile composer at his Juhu home for a freewheeling chat. Excerpts.
