Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 41st remembrance day :

Writing a post of a song by Mohammed Rafi Sahab is almost a second nature thing for me. I have not counted but nearly 50 % on my post must be of his songs, the exalted one, who was especially blessed by the Almighty with a life, spend smiling and spreading smiles as far as I know. Some people do want to remember him by the sad songs which he sang with equal spirit, giving them his all, that the song, situation and composition demanded, the same as he did for other songs. I found this photo, and see who has the widest smile of them all: <a href=”https://in.pinterest.com/pin/46724914867514223/&#8221; this and this this .

There are platitudes and eulogies and tributes paid in honour of celebrities, when they pass away, nowadays it is usually on social media. And then there is the sea of humanity, that erupted on a rainy friday of Ramadhan 1980 on the streets of Bandra and Juhu. It was 1980, not the time when the dwellers of this city could afford a new umbrella every monsoon. So it was black umbrellas galore on the tv screen, and many people who were without umbrella, having come out to brave the weather or travelled overnight from other parts of the country. They all had one aim, to accompany their beloved Rafi Sahab to the final destination. To walk two steps alongwith the ‘janaza’ of a ‘nek banda’, with the prayers for the departed soul’s maghfirah on every lip and in the heart.

I realized the real pain of losing someone close and dear 9 years ago, when my elder sister expired. A few days after that, my father said that he didn’t know what to ask from the Almighty in du’aa, as most of my du’aa was for her health and long life. In my turn I told him that though we all are grieving and crying on her passing away, but the tears and sadness is all for us actually. The thought of living on without that dear one, makes us feel lonely and bereft.

A year before she died, I had visited her in Bangalore. She was over the top to have me visit her, and we went to a lot of places. One day we both were going somewhere and we passed a ‘qabrastaan’ where her mother-in-law was buried. She said a prayer and told me we should always recite the prayer whenever we pass a qabrastan. The prayer roughly translates as “today you are resting here, we shall follow you tomorrow, for sure”.

Some similar thoughts on passing away of Rafi sahab are expressed in this song written by Anand Bakshi. This is a unique song in the film ‘Kroadh’ where Amitabh Bachchan is called on stage to pay tribute of Rafi Sahab on his 9th death anniversary programme. Amitabh Bachchan says a few sentences and starts singing the song:

na fankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya…
Mohammed Rafi tu bahot yaad aayaa….

The singer here is Mohammed Aziz who himself has passed away a few months ago. He has sung this song in memory of his idol very feelingly and there are tears in the eyes of Amitabh as he sings on stage and also the audience who are watching it. The scenes of ‘janaaza’ that Amitabh Bachchan is seen as recalling, were truly witnessed by him as well as Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyarelal(possibly). I am sure about Amitabh Bachchan having witnessed it funeral as I have seen a photographs of him with Amjad Khan, Vinod Khanna and Rajesh Khanna. Here is the article where he Amitabh remembers the same.
This article has some rare photos of the fateful day.

The song is so appropriate for this occasion, that I am neglecting to post a song by Rafi Sahab himself. But this song expresses the feelings of Mohammed Aziz, Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Anand Bakshi, as the record holder for having written highest no. of film songs must be the lyricist with the highest no. of songs written for Rafi Sahab too. Laxmikant-Pyarelal are also having similar record with Rafi Sahab. Right from ‘Dosti’ and ‘Parasmani’, they were the one’s who justified the ‘Dosti’ and stood with Rafi Sahab through his thick and thin.

These artists composed and performed the song 9 years after Rafi Sahab’s passing away, and gave words and expression to the feelings of millions of his fans throughout the world.

teraa naam koyi nahi bhool paaya
Mohammed Rafi tu bahot yaad aayaa

Na fankaar tujh sa

chale jaayenge ham

magar ek shikwa hai
lab pe hamaare
tujhe kitni jaldi
khudaa ne bulaayaa
Mohammed Rafi tu
bahot yaad aayaa
Mohammed Rafi tu

mere dil ko phir aaj
tadpa gaya hai
wo manzar mere
saamne aa gayaa hai
wo manzar mere
saamne aa gayaa hai
mere dil ko phir aaj
tadpa gaya hai
wo manzar mere
saamne aa gayaa hai
ke logon ne teraa
janaaza utthaaya
Mohammed Rafi tu
bahot yaad aayaa
Mohammed Rafi tu
bahot yaad aayaa
na fankaar tujh sa
tere baad aayaa
Mohammed Rafi tu
bahot yaad aayaa
Mohammed Rafi tu
bahot yaad aayaa

Nahm Ji,
Thanks for an excellent post. I would not comment on any line of yours because every line is a touching tribute to the great Mohammad Rafi. ( ‘Mausiqui ka Paigambar’ to quote Naushad Saheb)
I have neither seen ‘Kroadh ‘ nor heard this song. Truly a song to cherish

This is one song that I have heard a number of times. And I may have used it in a few of my posts on Rafisaa-. “The eternal smile-spreader”

The writer ‘s posts crosses all limits in eugolising a singer beyond limits . Writers post stretch to the limit of irritation and annoyance . Writers post are highly biased and can be easily classified as “Mohammed Rafi ki shaan mein Kaside ”
I don’t know why Atul jee is turning a blind eye to this aspect . However it is his platform , his choice . If he is allowing this beautiful platform as propaganda site for a particular singer we can’t help it . Rafi was a great singer and so we’re so many others including Mohd Aziz . All singers should be respected in the same manner . If Rafi is Rafi Saheb then Laksmikant Saheb , Pyarelal Saheb , Anand Baxi Saheb , Mohammed Aziz saheb, Shabir Kumar Saheb , Abhijeet Saheb , Kumar Shanu Saheb on & on & on

Avinash Kumar ji,

I have read your opinion about the post, but I will not object to anything that you wrote, because it is your opinion and it is not binding on other readers at all. It only reveals your thinking process. So be it.
In this Blog there is total freedom to the contributors to express their opinions, as long as it does not cross the limits of tolerance or does not express unacceptable comments about others.
Mrs. Nahm ji is one of our respected contributors and is with the Blog for more than 10 years. We have never found her making unacceptable claims about any artiste. Leave aside writing ill about others.
Tolerance about others’ opinion is becoming slowly a vanishing quality, but when in a public domain certain decency is expected.
Thanks for visiting the Blog.

Dear Arun jee
I have been a regular visitor to this site for more than a decade . You may verify this at your end . And I have always appreciated the efforts put in by Atul jee and enthusiast like you in compiling this wonderful blog . Thanks for replying to my post/opinion . It is a good thing that Atul jee and You have given full freedom to contributors . A lot of respect for that . Arun jee don’t you think it is going overboard mis using that freedom by giving respect to one artist and not to others ? Sir just think if , some one to write a post and mentions you as Arun Sahab and me as Avinash or vice a versa . If you mean to say that to accept “bias” is tolerance , yes there may be certain intolerant people by that definition .
I would request you to think over it there is no harm in giving respect to artists. Then give to every artist . Please don’t discriminate . My culture my education has taught me respect each and everybody without any discrimination . For me it is Atul jee ,Arun jee , Nahm jee , Avinash jee (scrapwala) Parveen Jee And Not Atul , Arun , Nahm Jee , Praveen Jee .
I hope I haven able to clarify my unbiased and undiscriminating opinion. If not , thanks for bearing with “intolerant ” opinion
In any case I am an ardent follower of the wonderful blog . I wish this discrimination is eliminated in future posts dept is upto You .
Thanks with regards and best wishes, as always . If you wish you can communicate on my email id

AVINASH KUMAR ji,

Whatever I wanted to express, I have already done so in my first reply and I do not wish to add anything further to it, because it was quite expressive.
I like to keep my opinions and views about others to myself. I feel one should not try to force them on others, because others too have their opinions, even if they prefer not to express.
Praising one does not lower the image of the other automatically.
