As this blog had continued on its onward journey from its humble beginning in July 2008, we have come across many festivals and we have discussed songs related to those festivals on those occasions.

The film ‘Teesri Gali’ makes a debut on this blog today. It is one of the lesser known films from 1958. But being that the music direction is by Chitragupt, there are bound to be some very good songs included in this film. And sure enough, the song in this post is a gem that has stayed obscure for too long. A very wonderful and a lilting duet in the voices of Hemant Da and Lata ji.

While discussing lori (lullaby) songs, I have mentioned that most lullabies are sung by female singers and picturised on actresses playing mother to some tiny tot. But it does not mean that there have not been lories sung by male singers. There may be just a few such songs but they are there.
