    bharati ji :

    pranam , namaste… points noted. we will definitely move to a bigger auditorium in matunga soon as soon as membership/funds and sponsorships materialises. this is a slow beginning and now we are in the second gear hoping to shift to top gears – very soon.

    but, once in a month, three hours u will get the best of rafi saaheb songs, I promise.

    Post 3 : Umesh ji,

    I am aware of many families getting the basic needs of life by
    singing in trains.

    last week a lad aged 14 and his sis aged `12 sang six rafi ji songs
    in a fast local from Borivli to bandra. the lad had a harmonium
    and the girl had a tabla with gungroos tied to her hands for the
    rhythem. People gathered around and paid them handsome amount.

    In my area itself there are 20 restaurants where there is live music
    played. just make a small calculation as to how many restaurants
    are there in which singers sing rafi ji songs – around the world
    and make a living.

    rafi ji is a “gandharva” singer now , he sings for the gods says :
    padmakar shivalkar, one of indias greatest leg spin bower, singer
    and rafi lover.

    time , tide and rafi magic will never stop….

    binu nair.

  5. Really a great and adorable work is being done by the Rafian’s to keep the memory alive. Rafisaheb when alive use to personally help so many needy people of the music fratenity and still he is able to help some needy people even 27yrs after his death. i personally known many people who still survive and earn their livelyhood by singing his immortal songs.Really rafisaheb was a blessed soul and only a good humanbeing can possess this quality really a farishta. my father had a great fortune that he meet this great human being though i was also present but fast asleep as i was only 3 yrs old at that time. i missed any further meeting with him as he left for heavenly abode only 10 days after our meeting. May his soul rest in peace
