Disc man
Among his collection of RPM records, you'll find 120 versions of Vande Mataram and 20 of Saare Jahan Se Achcha
Suruchi Mazumdar
Suresh Chandvankar, a scientist who lives in a spacious apartment at Colaba, had to purchase another house at Badlapur a few years back. Not as an investment or a retirement plan, but only to accommodate his ever-expanding collection of old gramophone records. He boasts of a collection of 10,000 RPM records. But that's not what sets him apart as a record collector. It's the music of once-famous-but-long-forgotten artists that makes his collection stand out. He has as many as 2,000 records of artists of the yesteryear like Vishnu Pant Pagnis, Sorabjee Dhondi, Murad Ali. ''These artists are now forgotten but I am passionate about their music. I play their records at small gatherings of like-minded people, where I also share information on their lives and works,'' says Chandvankar, who is also secretary of the Society of Indian Record Holders.
 
At his Colaba apartment, there's a special nook only for this music. Beside a cupboard stacked neatly with the records, stands a record player. And as the disc starts its slow rotations, old music floods the room and we are transported back in time. These records date back to the pre-1940s era. Most of the artists of the time produced just one or two albums at the most. "They sang classical and devotional music with minimum support of orchestration,'' he adds. Chandvankar's collection also has songs which were part of Marathi, Urdu and Parsi plays, as well as performances by mimicry artists. ''Besides cataloguing and collecting information on the artists, I try to preserve the music. The records are transferred to CD versions and digitised,'' he says. He's also got on record the music of courtesans from a bygone era. ''Between 1902 to 1910, The Gramophone Company released nearly 2,000 records of courtesans like Gauhar Jan of Kolkata and Agra's Malka Jan and Johra Bai. I have been able to preserve 500 of such records till date. The courtesans' music acquaints us with our musical tradition,'' adds Chandvankar who also stocks old records of legendary artists like Lata Mangeshkar and KL Saigal. His collection also boasts 120 different versions of Vande Mataram, right from Tagore's rendition of the song to AR Rahman's interpretation. And 20 versions of Sare Jahan Se. Chandvankar recently organised a concert at YB Chavan auditorium, called Songs Of Monsoon, where he played some of these ancient records.
