It occurs to me today that. . we are today reaching that point in time when this world has been bereft of Rafi Sb’s physical presence now, for almost that duration of time that this world was blessed and more complete with his presence as a singer known to the listeners. For an active career that lasted about three and a half decades, it is now about the same amount of time that he has not been with us. And his legacy grows stronger.

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

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.

GEMS FROM THE MIGRATORS…song no. 5
—————————————

So far, I have done 16 series here. This is the 17th series. Writing for a series is not an easy job.It not only requires lot of spade work,but also requires a continuous flow,avoiding a long gap between 2 posts, lest the tempo is lost. When I start a series, I am always in lot of tension till it is completed successfully. Every series is a new beginning for me. In spite of all this (and the ensuing allegations of ” neglect ” from the family ) I enjoy doing this work. There are many Blogs on internet which do posts on theme like ” Cycle songs”, Motor songs” or Sawan songs etc. I have always felt that Atul ji’s Blog is not an ordinary one and it must have real specially made exclusive topics for series I could do these posts,because Atul ji has always helped me with the Lyrics and has encouraged me always. Thanks Atul ji.

Amongst various phases that we go through in life, childhood, though the earliest of our conscious phases, usually manages to imprint some memories in our brain that seem to be indelible right through our life. We might forget what we had for lunch earlier today but we remember a seemingly inconsequential event that occurred when we were ten!

Today is the 31st of July(2014).

For many Hindi film music lovers, this date makes an immediate connect in their brain. To one of the most beloved persons to have ever been part of the Hindi film industry.

Yes, I am talking about Mohammad Rafi (or Rafisaab, as he is often respectfully referred to).

Today is the death anniversary of Rafisaab.

34 years ago, in 1980, a day that I remember vividly as if it were yesterday, Rafisaab left our midst.

Two songs from this movie “Tu Hi Meri Zindagi” (1965) have already been discussed in this blog. I would like to present two of my most favourite songs of this movie. The first one is presented here, and am sure the other one (Maayus Na Ho Aye Mere Watan) will be posted in the near future.

The year is 1927 and the place is Tellipur in Nagpur city. A boy, aged about 7 year is headed for his home after his school closes for the day. On the way, heavy rains forces him to take the shelter below the staircase of a building. The rains continue and the boy starts singing. An elderly person comes down from the upper floor of the building and takes the boy to his room. He asks the boy to sing the songs again which he was singing a short while ago. He is impressed by the boy’s singing. The rains stop and he accompanies the boy to drop him at his home. The elderly person requests boy’s mother, a school teacher, to let the boy join his music school. Before he completes his sentence, the mother tells him that she had no money to pay the fees. He assures her that he would not charge any fee for his music lessons. The mother is still not comfortable about her son joining the music school. She tells him that she does not want the boy’s schooling to be affected. The elderly person once again assures her that he would teach the boy only after his school timing is over. At last the mother agrees for her son joining the music school. The son was Vasantrao Deshpande and the elderly person was Shankarrao Sapre who was a trained classical singer of Gwalior gharana. For young Vasantrao Deshpande, it was the most important rainy day as it changed the course of his life.
