She was 74 years when she passed away in 2004. And by then, she had spent the last four decades of her life in a self imposed seclusion. The separation from the public domain was so complete that many took her to have already departed from this world. When the tidings of her demise came, many were surprised.

Remembering Suraiya on the day of her passing away (31st January).

THE VELVET MAGIC-TALAT DUETS….Song No. 4
———————————————
This duet is from film Pagle-50,sung by Talat and Rajkumari.

This duet was a combination of an upcoming Young male singer and a waning middle aged female singer. But there was ONE common thing between them. We all know, Talat had a ‘Tremor'( Kampan) in his voice-which set him apart from all other singers of his times. Few people know that even Rajkumari had a Tremor in her voice-albeit a faint one- which actually made her voice sweet and melodious making her voice different from others.

Troika of the latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore – 1. Mukesh
——————————————————————————-

Sometime in the middle of April 2015, I had sent two write-ups to Atul ji and coincidentally, both these write-ups were on the songs sung by Mukesh. Atul ji sent me a reply saying that for the time being, he was avoiding posting songs of Mukesh as also of Rafi who are on their way to hitting centuries of their songs in the Blog. So he reckoned that my write ups on Mukesh’s songs may have to be held back for a few days. It was apparent that articles for the special events had already been planned.

A click on ‘Some stats’ page of the Blog revealed that while Mukesh was close to attaining his 700th song, Mohammed Rafi was only one short of his 2400th song in the Blog. A further glance on this page revealed that Kishore Kumar too was also very close to hitting his 900th song. So it was rare ‘celestial’ event like that of conjunction of planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars in the triangle shape which is expected on October 28, 2015. And all the three playback singers are nothing less than celestial stars along with Talat Mehmood and Manna Dey. There was an inner urge in me to pay tributes to the troika of playback singers on this unique conjunction of century songs. A thought tickled in my mind. What if I was to select special songs for the troika of playback singers on the occasion?

A few days back, I came across a song ‘taqdeer ne hansa ke hamen phir rulaa diyaa’ from the film ‘SHAHNAAZ (1948). The song was composed and sung by Ameerbai Karnataki. Until now, I had not heard the name of the film. In fact, except for Ameerbai Karnataki and Mohammed Rafi, most of other names associated with this film are new to me.

“Dulaari” (1949) was a Kardar Production movie. It was produced and directed by A R Kardar. The movie had Suresh, Madhubala, Geeta Bali, Shyam Kumar, Jayant, Amar, Pratima Devi, Nawab etc in it.

Musically this movie is today fondly remembered for the song that made Rafi a singing sensation. This song, viz. Suhaani raat dhal chuki is the reason why most people know about this movie.
