Hi all you Music Lovers!
Most of you probably know that it is the 24th death Anniversary (July 31, 1980) of one of the GREATEST singers of the Indian Film Industry – Mohammad Rafi Sahab.
I don't think any of us, who have grown up listening to his melodious voice, will EVER forget him, as long as we walk this earth!! If you are an ardent fan of his, like I am, you will agree that his songs live in us, and in amazing ways and when trials and tribulations or joy comes into our lives, somehow and in some way these surface and we relate our situation to the wordings of a particular song – I am saying this from MY personal experience.
Anyway, this morning I heard something really 'powerful' and 'intense' that Naushad Sahab had said about Rafi and I got tears in my eyes, because I felt it deeply touched my heart because it is SO appropriate and profound and apt for someone like him. However, by the time I drove to work, I couldn't remember, it word for word, so I immediately went on GOOGLE and, to my amazement, FOUND it!! So, I am sharing it with you.
Meri Sargam Mein Bhi Tera Zikr Hai
Mere Geeton Mein Teri Awaaz Hai
Apni Mosiqi Par Sab Ko Fakhar Hotaa Hai Magar
Mere Saathi, Aaj Mosiqi Ko Tujh Par Naaz Hai
Naushad Sahab had also said:
EK DIN EK NAUJAWAN GAYAK MUJHE AAYA NAZAR
JISNE RAUSHAN KAR DIYE SANGEET KE SHAAM-O-SAHAR
