88th Birthday celebration of the Legend Padmashree Mohd. Rafisaab under a banner “ Rafi Ki Yaadein” on 24-12-2012 at Juhu Jagraan Hall, Mithibai College, Mumbai. All Rafi lovers and talented singers like Shree A. Narayan (Nari), Shree Kishore Makwana, Shree Manikrao Bhise (Voice Of R.D. Burman), Master Mohd Patel, Shree Santosh & Female Singer Smt. Rani Kaur pay their homage to the legend..
How lucky and blessed people are those who are listening the songs of Rafisaab and having slightly tears in the eyes while paying their tribute to the legend because Rafisaab brought life into his songs. Rafisaab is an ultimate singer and next to God in singing. Rafisaab is the only one who can control low notes as well as high notes. . . nobody else. How many singers dare to sing without music.
Loving Rafisaab sung “Tang Aa Chuke Hai” Film :Pyaasa (1957) without a single musical instrument in background can carry the whole theme on his shoulders, sure if S.D.Burmanji would have ever thought of anyone else other than Rafisaab for this song, so simple but touching we missed our beloved Rafisaab the most. Thus all Rafi Lovers pay their homage to a legend through “ Rafi Ki Yaadein” a musical live show on 24-12-2012.
Rafisaab will always remain in the heart of his fans forever. There will be no another Rafi or Prati Rafi.
Rafisaab Amar Rahe, Rafisaab Zindabaad, Jai Rafisaaab
