I don’t remember if I have seen the 1960 movie Love in Simla before. But I have heard many of its songs. And one or two songs have remained with me playing in the background of my head. I had marked this movie in the youtube library some time ago and began seeing it recently. The best part about seeing movies on youtube is they come in segments of 12 minutes. And as I was enjoying myself with the CINDERALLA kind of story this particular song came by and I thought “ hey I know this song” then the next step “is it on Atul?” and on searching I find Atuldom has eight songs from this movie but this one is missing.

I had played my 78 RPM record (No. N.52584) of the song ‘ajab hai daastaan teri ae zindagi’ from the film ‘Shararat’ (1959) umpteen times on my record player in my younger days. But it did not occurr to me at that time that there was something amiss about this song. It was much later I came to know that in this song, Mohammed Rafi had given playback for Kishore Kumar. .
