Happy Birthday Rafi Sahab!

An article by

Aankh Mein Surat Teri When Jaan Nisar Akhtar had penned this song, probably it was written down keeping Rafi Sahab in mind. Every line in the song feels as if it is being addressed towards our dear Rafi Sahab. O.P.Nayyar’s music and Rafi Sahab’s vocals have created the magic that we to this day remember and hum this evergreen Johnny Walker picturized number from the comedy movie Choo Mantar.

Yeh Kaun Gaa Raha Hai?
Baiju, Baiju Bawra,
Dil Dhadak Utha Hai Iski Awaaz Se.

Our Baiju Bawra is none other than our Rafi Sahab. How true the above line stands, Dil Dhadak Utha Hai Iski Awaaz Se. His voice has all the possible personas and nuances; his style has the keenness, forcefullness and penetration in thought, expression or intellect. His voice breaks away from all the possible barriers, blocks or limitations of style, expression or the language.

Aankh Mein Surat Teri, Lab Pe Tera Afsana Hai,
Kya Tujhe Bhi Hai Pata, Yeh Dil Tera Deewana Hai,

Aji Dil Ki Duniya Loot Li, Ay Rafi Kya Kehena Tera,
Har Nazar Jaadu Bhari, Har Ik Ada Mastana Hai

Yeh Teri Taane Hai Yaa, Mausam Balkhayi Huyi,
Yeh Tumhari Saaz Hai Yaa, Saaz-e-Masihaayi

Dil Se Teri Aarzoo, Teri Lagan Jaathi Nahin,
Oh Rafi Teri Yaad Mein, Rota Aaj Tera Fan Hai.

Every Rafian would truly understand the lines that are so relevant and crucial.

Dear Rafi Sahab,

We always visualize you and your songs are forever in midst. Do you happen to know that this heart craves and yearns for your presence? You’ve conquered our hearts, Oh Rafi, you are sheer magic and your each and every style is ingenious. Every line that you sing is as pure as mother nature, your music is no less than a melody of God. Your love has captivated and enamored our hearts; it fails to evanesce. Oh Rafi, we shed a tear, remembering you, today.

Happy Birthday.

    Wish you a very happy return of the day – Rafi Sahab.
    I have always been impressed by your immortal voice. I hardly remember my Birthday & that of my rest family members but I always remember your Birthday. Every moment I surf the web & tune radio station to record anything that I can get about you. I always feel you around me & you know it well. Rafi Sahab will you take birth again ??????? We all your fan miss you very much after your departure. It was not the right time to depart from us. In 1980 I was just about 4 years old. Otherwise I would definitely come to meet you & will wait at your gate till you didn’t allow me to come inside. But unfortunately this remain a dream till my death. In next Life I will definitely request God to let me meet you. I believe you are there – near GOD. The GOD must be listening to you. But if possible please teel the God to take birth again. We all your fan waiting for you.

    with love & regards,


    Will you come soon.

    Happy Birthday Rafi Saab,
    You may have left this world 25 years ago but your immortal voice and adaa will remain here forever. Personally, if it wasn’t for you, I would have found life here in the US very lonely and monotonous. You have kept me company through your voice and adaaigi through the years. Best part is- I haven’t ever listened to any other singer while driving/working simply
    ‘cos no one has sung songs in every other genre like you have. It is true when you sing “Tum Mujhe Yoon Bhula Na Paoge” because even my kids have become your avid fans after listening to you.

    Kaash ek aisa bhi janam din aaya aapka ki hum saare rafians ek saath baithe aur aap hume hamari pasand ke geet sunaye..janamdin to aapka par hume sabse badi nemat aapki awaaz rubaroo sunne mil jaaye..aaj khudaa bade shaan se apne darbar mein aapka janam din mana raha hoga aur jannat ke har kooche mein is dharti ke tarah bas rafisahab ke tarane goonj rahe honge…Aapki umar to ginnne ki zaroorat hi nahi aap amar rahe rafi sahab phir ek baar janam din ki karta hain gaakar hi doon par…

    Happy Birthday Rafi Sahib.
    I did not know that today is your birthday. But what a coincident? I have been searching for one of your songs “Es Dil Se Teri Yaad Bhulai Nahin Jaati” and that search brought me to this site. I have only a very poor recording on a cassete. I am sure one of these days I may get a better one.

    With Respect & Love

    mohamad rafi is fute in hands of sri krishna. the sound coming out from rafi is eternal sound. raw air taken by breath of rafi and pushed to different channels of vocal cord and finally the wave carrying the feeling, rythm and depth is sent to universe. i have listen to mohamad rafi and it gives me a feeling that sri krishna becomes visible and can be experienced. i only think and thank rafi sahib that i have listen to the eternal voice in my life. i wish my best wishes for family members of rafi sahib and greatest regards
