Rafi ki Bhakti ras dhara (in Hindi)

May 26th, 2013

रफीकी भक्तिरसधारा,

‘मन तडपत हरी दर्शन को आज ‘(बैजू बावरा),’बड़ी देर भई बड़ी देर भई कब लोगे खबर मोरे राम ‘(बसंत बहार)जैसे ईश्वर के प्रति समर्पण भाव व्यक्त करनेवाले भक्तिगीत हम बरसोंसे रफ़ी साहबके अदभुत स्वरके भक्ति छटा के आविष्कार स्वरुप सुनते आ रहे है। रफ़ी साहब के गाये हुए भक्तिगीतोंमे ईश्वर की अनुभूति दिलानेका सामर्थ्य है यह एक सम्पूर्ण सत्य है । मेरे इस विधान के पुष्टीकरण में उन्होने १ ९ ६ ० के पहले गाये हुए कुछ चुनिन्दा भक्ती गीतोंका मै यहाँ जिक्र करता हूँ जो हमेशा सुनाई नहीं देते तथा जो हम सुन चुके है । Read More »

Good day to every one and devotees of The RAFI Age. This is my humble statement and I think it will be appropriate to say the following: At the present time, I am now afforded the opportunity to make my tribute and I am taking it, for if I miss it now, I will regret it later and maybe I won’t be around anymore.

Being a heavy duty fan and disciple of this great singer is by no means a whim or a fancy.  I am observing every one is paying a dedicated service in their own shrines to this ICON in their hearts, consciousness and otherwise. Lip service  is not an option and in this respect, we stand guard permanently to this GREAT MASTER – MOH’D RAFI. Read More »

Maa Hai Mohobbath Ka Naam

May 12th, 2013

The word “ MAA” is the sweetest word in the world. When you express the word “ MAA”, your lips kisses together. This is unique, beautiful and amazing, SubhanAllah.

Although, many “ Mother’s Day  celebrations world-wide have quite different origins and traditions. In America, Anna Jarvis celebrated first time in 1908 on second Sunday of May. After this brief description on “Mother’s Day “ I would like to connect our beloved Rafi Sahab with “ Mother’s Day”. Rafi sahib has sung so many beautiful numbers on “MAA”. Maa hai mohabbath ka naam is one of his masterpiece from the movie “ Maa ka Aanchal “, beautifully composed by Madan Mohan with heart touching lyrics by Kaifi Azmi. When you listen to this song, you get mesmerized thinking about your mother. Read More »

But before we get to the songs and the singers – Jackie Shroff came first, spotted the photogs, quickly whipped out his sunglasses in the dark of the auditorium and put them on. Read More »

Actor Shammi Kapoor unified with voice of God nearly 1 ½ year back in 2011. Once upon a time, Producer-Director Manmohan Desai remarked about Mohammad Rafi: “If God had a voice, it would be Rafi’s voice’.” Manmohan Desai also remarked, “My first brush with superstardom came when I directed Shammi Kapoor who is India’s first superstar and the most stylish actor ever seen in Hindi Cinema.” Monmohan Desai was a great aficionado of Rafi Sahab who directed the Shammi Kapoor in four films: BLUF MASTER (1963) & BUDTAMEEZ (1966) as a leading hero and PARVARISH (1977) & DESH PREMEE (1982) in supporting role.
