The last post by me in the blog was on 28th february 2016. Nine days have passed since then and I have not posted a single post in the blog during this period !

Some unavoidable reasons kept me away from the blog for this long. Despite my absence, the blog stayed active thanks to posts made by Sudhir Ji. I am extremely thankful to him to keep the musical bandwagon going single handedly for these nine days.

In 1963, when Sunil Dutt lip-synced the songs in the film ‘Gumrah’, that was the time when the name of a till-then-relatively-unknown singer became a household name.  And yes, it also earned him the first of his three Filmfare awards for the best male singer.  The song – “Chalo Ek Baar Phir Se Ajnabi Ban Jaayen Hum Dono”.  The singer – Mahendra Kapoor.

Remembering Mahendra ji on the anniversary of his passing away today – 27th September.

I do not know as to why I suddenly remembered Sanjeev Kumar (real name Haribhai Jariwala) today early in the morning when I was preparing for my morning walk. His anniversary dates were nowhere near and I have not seen any of his films and video clips for a long time. As it is, my ‘area of operations’ on YT are mainly confined to the watching/listening of video/audio clips pertaining to the period between 1940-1960, straying sometime up to late 60s and most of his his songs does not fit in to my preference. Probably, this was a reminder to me from Sanjeev Kumar donning a white suit and trouser in true suspense film style echoing “old man, have a peep at me too sometime”.
