I can imagine in my mind’s eye. Atul ji getting interviewed on some online forum. The interviewer asks about what he does. Atul ji tells him that he is managing this Atul Song A Day blog. The interviewer asks Atul ji to describe this blog, what prompted him to set this up and tell about its specialties. Atul ji starts telling about the blog, its origins and its features. Near the end of the interview, the interviewer asks so tell what is new on the blog today. Atul ji raises one hand to cover a yawn, then remarks – “nothing much, the usual stuff, we just clocked another 100 songs today.” 😀 😀

It is a well known fact to all those interested in Hindi film music of golden era that Mohammed Rafi regarded G M Durrani as his idol. In the initial period of his singing career starting with his public and private performances, Mohammed Rafi used to imitate the singing style of G M Durrani. In the later 40s, as he started getting assignments for playback singing in Hindi films, somewhere during this period, he developed his own style of singing. Perhaps to some extent, credit should go to the music directors like Naushad, Husnlal-Bhagatram and Shyam Sundar who groomed him suitably in the initial stage of his playback singing. Later, with the popularity of his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), he reached the stage of ‘take off into a sustained growth’ in his playback singing carrier. The rest is history.
