Tere aane ki aas hai dost, sham phir kyon udas hai dost, mehki-mehki fiza yeh keh rahi hai, tu kahin aas paas hai dost. Mohammad Rafi immortalised himself by singing a number of songs which still enliven our hearts.
To pay tributes to the great singer, Rafi Memorial Nite was organised by the Rafi Memorial Society at Tagore Theatre today.
The charming and elegant Mala Sinha was the chief guest for the evening. Dr D.C Gupta, along with Dr Vineeta Gupta and Pratap Singh Bajwa, were the guest of honour and escorted her to light the lamp.
The jampacked auditorium, which was filled with Rafi fans, gave a warm welcome to Mala Sinha. The programme began with a devotional song Alla tero naam, ishwar tero naam by Rajinder Kalra and the other singers joined in.
While Raveesh Goyal sang the popular number by Rafi, Tu Hindu Banega Na Musalmaan Banega, Rinku Kalia sang Hai Isi Mein Pyaar Ki Aabro. Varun Malik rendered an evergreen number by Mohammd Rafi Rukh Se Zara Nakaab Hata Do Mere Hazoor.
