When I was a kid, I lived in a small township where we had a medical centre as part of the facilities within the township. It was manned by a fine doctor, Dr. Sinha. He was from Bihar, never spoke much, but his diagnosis was excellent. He never over-dosed patients – I remember he would often send me back home without prescribing any medicines at all. To my disappointment!:-) I’d get well on my own, within a day or so.

When I retired from my active service in 1998, computers were very much in great use and all my staff was using them. There was a desk top in my cabin, very much on my table, but not knowing anything about it, I never touched it and it remained only as a show piece for the visitors. Occasionally, my deputies would come in and show me some data on the computer.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

xईx  ‘उ’
“उन्हें मंज़िल नहीं मिलती जो किस्मत के सहारे हैं”

Ah yes, you notice that I skipped the vowel ‘ई’ and jumped straight to the vowel ‘उ’. The reason is that in all the film and non film songs that I could access and check, all songs starting with ‘ई’ have already been posted. With its typical usage profile in the language, there are very few songs that start with words that start with ‘ई’ in Rafi Sb’s list of songs. So I move on to the next vowel in sequence.

Hindi film songs have been influenced by music from various genres. That is good. Some songs are ‘inspired’- a euphemism for generously borrowing. Well, it should have been better effort. Some after getting inspiration are better than the original pieces. That is something. I would cite ‘Kaun hai jo sapnon me aya..’ from ‘Jhuk Gaya Asmaan’ which was inspired by Elvis Presely’s ‘Marguerita’
