Thursday, November 15th, 2007

This appeal is written by Mr.Raju Korti, Mumbai.

Mohd RafiThis appeal is a chorus for The Voice of the sub continent, the singer of the millennium. A fervent, passionate appeal to correct what all his legion of admirers and devotees righteously feel is a historic wrong.

This article is written by Mr. Nitish Sinha from Rourkela, Orissa.

Mohd RafiSeventies was the decade of experiments, the decade of change of guard and also the decade of Rafi Saab, again.
