Rafi Sahab- the Voice of God

Rafi Sahab -  the Voice of God

Mujhko mere baad zamaana dhoondega. Meri aawaaz suno, pyaar ka raaz suno. Tum mujhe yun bhula na paaoge. Main kab gaata mere swar mein pyaar kisi ka gaata hai.

What do all these phrases, nay, songs tell us all? That the singer could make a prophecy. On many occasions, not just once. He probably always knew that long after he was gone he would still be looked for, followed and idolized the same way as he had been when he walked on earth in his mortal form. Read More »

Rafi Research

Prelude:
I am probably the only one who feels and experiences the legendary singer mohammed Rafi sahib, was and is actually a “singing avatar“. Three and half decades have elapsed since he gave up his mortal self, but, lives in every Rafi bhakt, Rafi fan, Rafi lover, musically. His songs live in our human system while at work and even while in sleep. A rafi follower’s personal anger is like a bubble. For the other it seems to exist but in reality it was a mirage. Read More »

Awaz-e-Ishq – book on distinctive characteristic of Rafi Sahab’s singing modality and his extremely exquisites voice

July 31st, 2014

This book is not the biography of Mohammad Rafi Sahib, nor a collection of his songs with the sequence of time. As a student of music, I’ve made an effort to write something on distinctive characteristic of his singing modality and his extremely exquisites voice. The life journey; childhood; stay in Lahore and initial engagements; start of singing in Bombay; rise to excellence; then the happenings of 70s and death – on all these aspects written material is available but it’s superficial and provides only a limited information.

Playback from the Past

Playback from the past

In the present times we see a lot of biopic films being produced, where the era of 1950s to 1970s is portrayed on screen. Going back in time means highlighting the fashion of that era. We see characters wearing bell bottom trousers with high heel shoes; printed shirts with large round collars along with specific 70s era hair style with covered ears. To an extend the popular cars and trucks of that era along with steam locomotives become part of the biopic. Majority steam locomotives have been phased out by the Indian Railways, only a few are currently maintained at the Rewari rail workshop near Delhi. Most of these incredible machines see their role in the current biopics and earn good revenue for the Indian Railways. Read More »
