A voice that knew no boundaries, knows no boundaries. A voice that spans the entire spectrum of octave range that the music directors dream of. A voice that displays limitless possibilities of emotions and colors. A voice that is alive and true to the very essence of the on screen scenario every moment. A voice such as his can only be explained in terms of a Divine intervention. The voice that is the voice of every performer he sang for. The voice that is Mohammed Rafi – matchless and inimitable.

Remembering Rafi Sb on the anniversary of his passing away today -31st July.

When the young man from Punjab, whose voice was fascinating music directors, came to Bombay, he did have his initial foray into the world of on screen appearances. Brief cameos happened in films ‘Laila Majnu’ (1945) and then in ‘Jugnu’ and ‘Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo’, both in 1947. But when the songs of ‘Jugnu’ and ‘Shaheed’ (1948) and ‘Mela’ (1948) hit the screens, and gained popularity, it was a judicious choice that Rafi Sb made, to continue in the industry as a singer. Judicious I say, because the other examples we see in the industry; artists with singing as their core strength, continued to try their hand at being leading men on screen, did not quite fare so well in their careers as singing stars.

In 1946, Rafi, relatively a novice in the industry as yet, got the famous and fortunate opportunity to sing along with Saigal Sb in the song “Roohi Roohi Roohi Mere Sapnon Ki Rani” in the film ‘Shahjehan’. However, this was not the first time he had met the great singer. His first meeting with Saigal Sb was actually about a decade earlier. He was all of just 12 or 13 years of age then. Since childhood, he was known to be an excellent singer in his family. Sometimes when he used to accompany his elder brother Hamid, to their family shop, he would sit there and sing, much to the delight of the customers and passersby. Hamid was well aware of the talent his younger brother displayed. He would encourage him and made many efforts to get him trained under renowned masters – names like Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Feroze Nizami (then associated with the All India Radio station at Delhi), and Jeevan Lal Matoo. Whenever there used to be any music program of renowned artists arranged in Lahore and nearby towns, Hamid Bhai would take his younger brother along to listen and learn.

A musical evening was organized in Lahore. The main attraction of the program was Saigal Sb. The crowds had gathered in advance – it was not a program in a hall, but arranged in an open ground. Just a little while before Saigal Sb was to arrive, the sound system arranged for the program, broke down. The crowds got restive when they realized that the loudspeakers were not working. And the organizers, including Hamid Bhai, were at their wits ends on how to manage the ire of the audience. The loudspeaker system would take at least half hour to repair. In the midst of all the clamor of the audience and the confusion back stage, Hamid Bhai got Rafi on stage, and simply asked him to sing. The sight of this sprightly barely-teenager at first seemed to add fire to the irate crowd. But when his voice came down slicing through the din, it captured the attention of every set of ears on the ground that evening, and the din slowly subsided. People slowly fell silent as they were caught unaware by this engaging voice of a child barely in his teens, singing to a crowd in an open ground, sans any mike and loudspeakers. By the time the sound systems was repaired and it was time for the regular program to start, Saigal Sb had already arrived, and had listened to the singing of young Rafi. After the program, he specially called for the child, hugged him, and gave him his blessings – to be a great singer when he grows up. The magic of that evening and the blessings of the great one, himself gifted with Divine endowment was to ring in true in the life of this gifted child.

The song I present today is a gem of melancholia, one of the many genres that Rafi Sb has rendered with impeccable involvement. The film is ‘Namaste ji’ from 1965. The lyrics for this peerless creation are by Anand Bakshi, and the music composition is by GS Kohli. And the voice – that is a wonder unto itself, and an everlasting succor for the listeners.

Listen and enjoy.

हमें क्या जो हर सु
हमें क्या जो हर सु
उजाले हुये हैं
हमें क्या जो हर सु
उजाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के
पाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के
हमें क्या जो हर सु
उजाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के
पाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के

बहारों ने जाने कहाँ फूल बांटे
हमारे चमन में
खिले सिर्फ कांटे
हमारे चमन में
खिले सिर्फ कांटे
ये इंसाफ भी क्या
निराले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के
पाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के

किसी और का दिल
जो यूं टूट जाता
तो शायद खुदा से भी
वो रूठ जाता
तो शायद खुदा से भी
वो रूठ जाता
हमीं हैं जो ये ग़म
संभाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के
पाले हुये हैं
के हम तो अँधेरों के

One of the earliest articles in the blog that gave me immense satisfaction was the article on the song “Din hai suhaana aaj pehli taareekh hai”. This song, that brings back nostalgia big time for people growing up in 1960s and 1970s is from “Pahli Taareekh” (1954) and it was played on Radio Ceylon (later SLBC) on the first day of every month. Listening to this song on the first day of every month in the “puraani filmon ke geet” programme was a divine experience. One needed to live in that era to savour it. Those who could never savour it because they were not born then, I can only say-tough luck. Better luck next time. :)

So continuing in my line of light hearted romantic songs here is one more. Now this one is from the 1978 Dharmendra- Hema Malini – Prem Chopra starrer “Azaad”. This song is in the voice of Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It has music by RDB and the songs were written by Anand Bakshi. That means the songs from this movie were all great on the ear. What more does one expect when AB and RDB collaborate?

So now our blog is 9788 songs old. And I am increasingly beginning to feel like Sachin Tendulkar. What do his stats say? It says that he has scored 100 hundreds in international cricket both One Days and test matches put together. Now when we (my daughter and me) started sending contributions to the blog our aim was to send 100 contributions between the two of us. Then she slowed down because of various reasons (academic commitments being the main reason.) but I was having some free time and whenever the writing bug bit me I would send one across to Atul. Next came those dates when it was the birthday of any of my favorites or a death anniversary or birthday of any important person for the blog itself (read Arunkumarji, Atul and the blog itself). So there were days when I used to send mails to Atul daily and sometimes I am absent from the blog for weeks. But after I got the mail from Sudhirji I have taken it upon myself to be more active on the blog and I have now reached 90 contributions on the blog (33 as lyrics contributor.) So this is what I said about “feeling like Tendulkar”.
