Today (31 july 2015) is the last day of the week as well as the month. But that is not how this date is remembered by music lovers. Most music lovers, whether casual music lovers or serious ones know this date like the back of their hands. It was on this day in 1980 that Rafi passed away. He was just 56 years of age at that time and his stars were on the ascendancy again when fate willed otherwise on that day 35 years ago.

एक सागर है, आवाज़ का, जिसमे डूबे ही रहने को मन करता है।

These are times to be thankful.  And to feel blessed.  That we are living in the times when this treasure of music was created.  We continue to search and explore and continue finding gems, obscure gems, unheard gems, lost gems – songs that were once created with a lot of enthusiasm and zeal.  Yes, these are times to feel blessed that these gems are available and accessible. I am really anxious about the day, and shrink away from the thought – the day when we will have no more songs of Rafi Sb to post. Life will continue, no doubt.  It has a relentlessness built into it.  But then, we will be carrying with us, an emptiness – that there are no more “unheard” songs to search for.

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable – Song No. 10
—————————————————

Remembering Rafi Sahab on his 35th death anniversary :

When I heard this song for the first time a few days ago, I was looking for a Roshan song to post on 14th July for the birth anniversary of the maestro. This song when heard properly, is surely a masterpiece by its creators. I promptly wrote a post and sent it to Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, without checking properly if I got the correct ‘Roshan’. As it turned out this song is composed by Roshan Lal Khatri, and not Roshanlal Nagrath, whose birth anniversary it was on 14th July.

Today is the 31st of July 2015.

For lovers of Hindi music, especially that of yesteryear, this date has a special significance and immediate recall.

This is the date, 35 years ago, that Mohammad Rafi (who I always refer to as Rafisaab), left us.

“Mujhko mere baad zamaana dhoondhegaa”.
“Caravaan guzar gaya gubaar dekhte rahe”.
These were words that proved to be prophetic. In the monsoon of 1980 we had to bid good bye to The Mohd. Rafi.

It has been 35 years since Mohammad Rafi left this world. Unbelievable. Our statistics page says that there are around 4845 songs sung by him in Hindi films. (Wikipedia puts a figure of around 5000). And we are past 2400 (as per the latest updation). So we still have around 2400 songs to go. That means fodder for our blog for another few years I suppose. And all the fans of Rafisaab in our Atuldom can get to work to reach out to all his songs. It is actually not that difficult a job.
