It has been raining fairly much all day yesterday. It was raining when I woke up today morning. Seemed like a good pleasant day starting. The weather in Delhi had been humid and windless for past two three days. Yesterday was a welcome break and today is a day with brightness that comes after rain. With nothing particular for reference, the mind had been humming the lines since I woke up.

humse miley tum sajan
tumse miley hum

I had played my 78 RPM record (No. N.52584) of the song ‘ajab hai daastaan teri ae zindagi’ from the film ‘Shararat’ (1959) umpteen times on my record player in my younger days. But it did not occurr to me at that time that there was something amiss about this song. It was much later I came to know that in this song, Mohammed Rafi had given playback for Kishore Kumar. .

Here is a song from a light hearted movie called “Bhaagam Bhaag” (1956). The song begins with Shashikala lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Then Kishore Kumar appears singing not in his voice but in Rafi’s voice.

This song is a rare song in more ways than one. First of all, this song from “Haay Mera Dil” (1968) is rare in the sense that I was neither aware of this movie nor of this song till recently. And secondly, this song is rare in the sense that this song is picturised on Kishore Kumar but the voice that sings the song is some other singer- Manna Dey in this case.
