An Open Letter to Rafi Demeanors

Mohd Rafi

Book writing is a serious business. And if the book is about a person who left this world more than 35 years ago, the task becomes all the more tedious as the references and contact persons of that time become fewer and hard to locate.

Title Credits : Songs by Rafi Sahab

As a kid I used to be fascinated by the title credits in movies (still am, though a tad irritated that it comes in the end, when everyone is walking out, blocking the view). Well, many title credits had tunes of the songs of the film. And I guess in some cases, the producer and/or director were so enamored with the songs, that the whole song used to be played in the title credits. (more…)

Ravi sahab and Chitragupt ji gave brilliant tunes to Rafi Sahab

Chitragupt gave very melodious tunes in the 50s and 60s and as most of his songs were sung by legend of legends Rafisahab, the songs became immortal after creation. Just because the world of music in 1960s was dominated by giants like Naushad Ali, Shankar Jaikishan, Roshanlal Nagrath, Madanmohan Kohli, less known composers like Chitragupt did not receive the recognition he deserved.
