The wonder and magic of Rafi Saab!
By Chandan (KS Ramachandran)
36 years after his demise, we are still wondering as to how Mohammed Rafi Saab could so naturally sing maintaining all the parameters of playback singing at its optimum level. He could more than meet the expectations of some 18 front level music composers, while being so caring and considerate in obliging to the graduating second line music composers.
He was a pious man with simple healthy habits, lifestyle and ever smiling! Much has been explored and explained about his sterling qualities, both as a human being and as a singer.
Rafi Saab’s renditions cannot be explained in words, but only be experienced! Long live the legend and his music.
I sincerely wonder as to why our country has not yet considered bestowing the ‘Bharat Ratna‘ award to him, when we all collectively realise that there can be no one to come anywhere near his singing prowess, past, present or even future!
