Today, 6th July, is the remembrance day of music director Sardul Kwaatra, who passed away this day in 2005. Four years ago, on this occasion, I have posted a detailed article on this ‘impressive and talented composer who failed to impress’ with the song “Aa Gaye Aa Gaye Aa Gaye”.

I did not know that Shaminder was a playback singer until I came across a duet song ‘ye shokh adaa mast nigaah’ from the film ‘Son Of Alibaba’ (1955) sung by him and Geeta Dutt. Curious to know about him, I checked in this blog and found that one duet song chaand sitaaron mein kaun bulaaye sung by him with Lata Mangehskar from the film ‘Pilpili Saheb’ (1954) has already been discussed.
