    Mohd Rafi can Never Die. He lives in the hearts of Music lovers. In the city of mumbai about twenty musicals were held during the week leading to july 31. All of them were sold out shows.

    Rafi foundation members paid tributes to rafi saaheb in delhi, bangalore, pune and calcutta by staging musicals. keep up the good work dear rafi lovers.

    And in september another set of Mohd Rafi shows will commence. this shows how much mohd rafi is loved. music lovers listen to rafi from their heart.

    generations will come and generations will go. mohd rafi songs will be heard by all of them.

    Has Mohammed Rafi saab really left us? I don’t think so. Does a day go pass by without his divine voice?

    His songs are tailer made for every moment of life, whether happy, sad, fun, hard times etc.

    Mohammed Rafi saab zindabaad!!!

  6. RJ Snigdha says:

    Here at Bangalore, we, the Rafi Fan Club members are paying their tribute to this Magnum Opus in their own small way by organising a meet and staging a show at an Auditorium where the Members( a few) would sing some of his memorable tracks and also view a documentary on this great Legend called Rafi Saab!! Am privileged to have been given the oppurtunity to Anchor the show.
    Let us all Rafi fans, all over the globe wherever possible, in whatever little way, commemorate this great day!!

    Rafisaab, u are going to remain endlessly with the Mankind all over with your ever smiling personality and of course your charismatic music.


  8. mukul mathur says:

    The best of all times!!1 I don’t have words to describe his impact of each song. My yong son is a part of talant hunt and singing rafi’s songs, i fell always good for his future.

  9. JYOTI MOHANTY says:

    To say that you are the best playback singer of all times is an under statement!
    Even after 3 decades of your mortal beings bade adieu ,you still rule a million heart!Despite of being a legend in your life time,you were most humble,down to earth,soft spoken ,god fearing & ofcourse arrogance never had touched you even!You maintained a life style which to date very few could boast of in the film industry tii date.Your ever smiling face with those eyes full of innocence says it all.
    Your songs are priceless gems & as a singer you are INCOMPARABLE.
    you are the souce of inspiration to me & to many others.

    Dear Binu ji,
    I know you personally and we recently met also
    I salute your dedication to The Rafi Foundation and the efforts you are taking to propagate the legacy of this great soul.
    I wish you all the best in your endeavours .
    We must do something to treasure the treasure of countless number of songs that all of us have in our collection.
    In this endeavour, I would call upon the elderly citizens who have rare songs of RAfi Saab in their collection, to share them with the new generation of Rafi lovers. This is a humble request from my side
    It’s the only way we can keep Rafi Saab’s legacy going on and on
    May God bless our RAfi Saab’s soul !!!!

    Just a few words in tribute:

    Rafi Sahab, itni oonchai par aapki aawaaz basti hai wahaan koi nahi pohonch sakta

    Par aap kitni aasaani se us oonchai se ek saaz par leherte hue hazaaron ke dilon par utarte hain

    Main uparwala se poochti hoon

    Ai khuda – kya is dukh bhari duniya ki gehri andhere ko dekh kar
    toone apni roshni is nek insaan ki aawaaz me apne haathon se daal diya

    ta ke jab bhi gham mehsoos ho, hum Rafi Saahab ki andaaz ko sunkar
    ek pal me pohonch jaate hai ek khushoo-e-chaman par
    jahan na koi gham hai na koi nami
    jahan – khushi phailaati hui sirf ek aawaaz hai – Rafi!

  19. mohmad sakir says:

    non other filmy personality, get honored . which get mohmad rafi ,

    badan main jaise dil ka martaba hota hai wasehi rafi saab ka martba
    bharatiy filmy safar main hain.

    Mohammed Rafi Saheb is no more with us physically, but mentally he’s in millions of hearts. His songs are heard even today as before and will continue forever. 29 long years have passed, but, Rafi Saheb is and will be remembered all over the world. No doubt, he is the best of all, the greatest melodious singer on earth.

  21. my sincere regards to all rafilovers, kindly make it a point we are all bound to do something to keep holy memories of Rafisahaab alive such as:-
    to putforth a proposal to hon. Govt. to honour Rafisahaab with Bharatratna.
    to putforth a proposal to hon. film industry to honour Rafisahaab with Dadasaheb Phalke award.
    to think of erecting a statue of Rafisahaab at prominent place in India.
    to think of any idea to erect a memorial hall in the memory of Rafisahab.
    to think of any idea to erect a hospital in the memory of Rafisahab.
    to think of organizing frequent programmes to refresh memories of Rafisahab
    and most important is to stop comparission of anybody else with Mohammed Rafisahab the legend of Indian film music world.


    shamma-e-rafi ke parwano!
    aaj ek baar phir wohi maqaam aaya hai jisse guzarna hamaray dilon pe khanjar chalne se kam nahi, wohi manhoos 31 july,wohi din jis ne hum se hamare sooraj ko chheen liya aur music ki duniya mein taareeki phailadi. sach kahoon to ab mausiqui ki duniya mein sewa andheron ke aur kuchh bhi nahi aise mein kuchh hai to is andheron ke parde ko chheerti hui wohi noorani aawaz hai jo aaj bhi apne naghmon ke zaria hamare dilon ke andhere door kar rahi hai. kaash aisa ho paata ke allah hum jaise chund logon ki zindagi ke aiyyaam bhi rafi saheb ki zindagi mein jod deta,to aaj hum uss farishte uss aawaz ke khuda se mahroom to na hotay. naghmon ka safar to aaj bhi jaari hai, lekin woh raah-numa ab kahan??

    kahan se laaoon woh woh lazzat gayi baharon ki…
    tumharay saath gayi roshni chiraghon ki,

    aayen hum sab uss paak rooh ki taskeen ke liye milkar dua karen kyun ke ab hamare haathon mein sewa dua karne ke aur kuchh bhi nahi jo us shakhs ko nazar kar saken.

    tere geeton mein baaqi ab talak woh soz hai lekin

    woh pehle phool barsaate thay,ab daman bhigote hain


    hum tujhe yuuun bhula na payengay
    jab kabhi bhi sunengay geet tere
    sang sang hum bhi gungunaengay

    jawaid naseem
