As I write out this post today, I have strong emotions attached to it.

It is a huge honour for me to write this post. I have to thank Atul for giving me the opportunity to do so.

Just a few days ago, Atul sent me an e-mail asking me if I could do a write-up for Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And of course, I immediately mailed back “Sure”. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity – it is indeed a very special occasion and a huge honour for me.

Here is one more song of the popular unofficial genre viz “how come this song was not posted earlier” 🙂 . During my younger days I was only into listening current songs and any song created before 1968 was old song for me. then one fine day in mid 1970s I decided to become mature, viz. become interested in old songs. It was then that I learnt about O P Nayyar. The fact that he made his career without using the voice of Lata voice impressed me a lot. Then I heard O P Nayyar compositions from movies like “CID”(1956), “Naya Daur”(1957) etc.

I am coming round to the view that the popular category of songs, viz “How come this soong was not posted earlier” contains not just hundreds, but thousands of songs. There are so many great songs that have not yet figured in the blog, despite this blog boasting of over 5500 songs.

It happens quite often in this blog that when a song is discussed, readers exclaim- “what ! How come this song was not discussed as yet !”. My explanation is that there have been tens of thousands of great songs in Hindi movies, and we have discussed just a small portion of that huge collection of songs, so omission of many great songs should come as no surprise. Hopefully the number of omitted songs will gradually come down as we add more and more of such songs.
