(Ramzan’s Rooza has Ended, Moon of EID is Spotted, Who will be seated in the Assemble of Worship)

It was the sole famous qawwali song from Assamese film, Lati-Ghati (1966), where two legendry singers, Mohammed Rafi and Dr. Bhupen Hazarika shared their golden voice with chorus. The song begins with voice of Rafi Sahab with chorus and in middle of song Dr. Hazarika joins them. The thesis of the song is the celebration of EID at the end of holy month of Ramzan by Hindu and Muslim together with communal harmony in a small village called Hajoo nearGuwahati,Assam. The lyrics and music of the song was penned by Dr. Bhupen Hazarika with direction of the film. Dr. Hazarika was the first person fromAssam who led the way of pioneering the Assamese cinema and culture in national and international cinema graph.

In addition to above Assamese film song, Mohammed Rafi Sahab had sung following two popular solos for an Assamese Modern song album which were never been make use of in a film.


In the Valley of Assam, Sunshine play with Colures,, Butterflies Daces in Joy Which Call me with Beck of Hands

The song gives a picture of the natural beauty, ecological uniqueness ofvalleyofAssamand simplicity, natural worship and friendliness of its people which recalls everyone with back of hands.



(My Eyes Search You and You Entered My Heart through Them, If It Is Love, It’s Fine)

The song depicts the eternal feeling of a lover how he visualizes his dream girl with his beautiful eyes. It is one of the best evergreen romantic songs among the Assamese Modern songs delightfully sung by Rafi Sahab. The above two popular Mohammed Rafi songs were composed by music director duo Jitu-Tapan (Hindi Serial TEHKIKAAT fame) in the beautiful lyrics of Nurul Haque and both the songs are available in a HMV cassette of Assamese songs named Amar Sangeet with other songs of Dr. Bhupen Hazarika and Deepali Borthakur.

Geetimallika and Bedhesi Bandhu

There was a Hindi Song in the Assamese film MAK ARU MARAM (1957) directed by Nip Baruah under composition of his brother Brajen Barauh since the storyline of the film was in Culcutta. However, the trend of engaging Hindi Film Singers for playback in Assamese films started by Dr. Bhupen Hazarika from ERA BATAR SUR (1956) which opened a new mechanisms of Assamese films and became a turning point of Assamese films. In the film he added his most preferred song, “Sagar Sangramat Katanu Xaturilu Tathapitu Huwa Nai Kalnta” with two songs by melody queen Lata Mangeshkar : a solo “Jonakare Raati Assomire Mati” and a multi singer song “Rad Puwabar Karane Matibanu Kak” with Dr. Bhupen Hazarika and Hemant Kumar Mukherjee. Initially, the said solo was created by Dr. Bhupen Hazarika in 1952 for a first Indian L.P. record with the voice of Lata Mangeshkar named as “Around The India With Lata”. The record was created with one song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar from different Indian Languages and as an Assamese language song it was included in the record. In CHIK MIK BIJULI (1969), Dr. Hazarika accommodated large number playback singers from Hindi Film Industry: Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle and Suman Kalyanpur. Mukesh Chand Mathur sung the only Assamese song in the film with his great pathos as follows:-


(Our Home Is The Earth, Earth Is Our Home)
(Only The Path Is Our Own, And All Others Are Fake)

In mid 1970s, again Mukesh Sahab was contracted by Assamese Producer-Director, Prabin Bora (Parinaam, Angikar & Prem Bhara Chakuloo fame) for a song during making of his film Angikar under composer Dr. Bhupen Hazarika. Unfortunately, due to early demise of Mukesh Sahab on 27th August, 1976, the theme song of the film, “Jeevan Sundar Maram Sundar” was later sung by composer Dr. Bhupen Hazarika with Anju Devi. Director Prabin Bora would like to dedicate his recent film “LUITAK BHETIBA KYONE” to Dr. Bhupen Hazarika which will be the first Assamese film to be dedicated to the legend and to be released in early 2012.

There was also a popular multi-singer song, “Phakiraaj Ghora Khat Khat Ke Doura” in the film, Chick Mik Bijuli by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle and Dr. Bhupen Hazarika. Suman Kalyanpur sung two popular songs in the film: a solo “Bijulir Phohar Mure Nai” and a duet “Milanar Ayi Subhakhan” with Dr. Hazarika.

Recently, Dr. Bhupen Hazarika was died in the KokilabenDhirubhaiAmbaniHospital, Andheri(West), Mumbai on 5th November, 2011 due to multi organ failure. His body was shifted to Guwahati, Assam on 7th November and cremated on 9th November at JALUKBARI in a plot of land donated by GAUHATI UNIVERSITY. His funeral was attended by an anticipated half a million people which create a mark not only in Assam but in Republic of India like funerals of Mahatma Gandhi, Mohammed Rafi, Michel Jackson, etc.

Brief life history of Dr. Bhupen Hazarika

Dr. Bhupen Hazarika was born on 8th September, 1926 in Sadiya presently in Tinsukia district of Assam to Shantipriya and Nilakanta Hazarika, who was originally from Nazira, Sivasagar, Assam. Bhupen Hazarika, the eldest of ten kids was exposed to traditional music of Assam due to musical influence of his mother. After three of his birth, his father shifted from Sadiya to Bharalumukh, Guwahati where Hazarika spent his early days. In 1932 his father shifted to Dhuburi and in 1935 finally to Tezpur. In Tezpur, a teenaged Hazarika was noticed by the doyens of Assamese culture, Jyotiprasad Agarwala and Bishnuprasad Rabha when he was singing a BORGEET taught by his mother at the age of 10 at a public function. In 1936, they escorted young Bhupen Hazarika to Kolkata where he recorded his first song at the Aurora Studio for the Selona Company. Afterward, he sang two songs: “Kaxote Kolosi Loi” and “Biswa Bijoyi Naujawan” at the age of 12 in the second Assamese film INDRAMALATI (1939) produced and directed by founder of Assamese Cinema, Jyoti Prasad Agarwala. He also acted in the film as a child artist. He had written his first song, “Agnijugar Firingoti Moi”  at the age of 13 and started his way to becoming a lyricist, composer and singer. He was well known for writing bold lyrics with themes of communal harmony, universal justice and sympathy. His songs have become popular among all sections of cultural and religious communities inAssam,West Bengal andBangladesh.

Dr. Bhupen Hazarika studied at SonaramHigh Schoolat Guwahati, DhuburiGovernmentSchooland finally matriculated from TezpurHigh Schoolin 1940. He completed his Intermediate Arts from CottonCollegein 1942 and his BA & MA degrees in Political Science from BanarasHinduUniversityin 1944 and 1946 respectively. After completing his MA, he worked at All India Radio, Guwahati and at GauhatiUniversityas a lecturer for short period. Subsequently, he got a scholarship from Columbia University and navigated to New York in 1949. At Columbia University he met Priyamvada Patel, whom he married in 1950 and their only kid Tez Hazarika was born in 1952. Later on, they separated with mutual understanding. In 1952, he received PhD in Mass Communication from Columbia University on “Proposals for Preparing India’s Basic Education to Use Audio-Visual Techniques in Adult Education”.

During his stay in New Yorkin the early 1950s, he was connected with Paul Robeson who persuaded him and he was exposed to American black spirituals. Most of Dr. Hazarika’s prominent compositions were adaptation of American black spirituals which he had learned from Paul Robeson. For instance, his famous song “Bistirno Parore Asankha Janare” is based on the theme of Robeson’s “Ol Man River” and a multi-lingual version of “We are in the Same Boat Brother” was a habitual feature in his stage performance.

In 1953, after returning from USA he was associated with the Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA) and became the secretary of the committee of the third All Assam Conference of IPTA held in Guwahati in 1955.Then he started direction of Assamese film with ERA BATOR SUR (1956) followed by SHAKUNTALA (1961), PRATIDHWANI (1964), LATI-GHATI (1966),CHIK MIK BIJULI (1969), MON PRAJAPATI (1979), SWIKAROKTI (1986) and SIRAJ (1988).

His monstrous popularity in Assam as a lyricist, singer, music composer and film director elected him as an Independent candidate to Assam Legislative Assembly for the period 1967 to 1972 and he exclusively initiated the proposal for setting-up a state owned film studio in Guwahati, Assam. Subsequently, the studio has been set-up in Kahilipara, Guwahati named as “Jyoti Chitraban” which is being dedicated to founder of Assamese Cinema, Jyoti Prasad Agarwala. In 1974, he directed a colour documentary film titled For Whom The Sun Shines based on Tribal folk songs and dances for the Arunachal Pradesh Government. In 1977, he also produced, directed and composed music for Arunachal Pradesh’s first colour Hindi feature film, MERA DHARAM MERI MAA.

In early 1970s, for better prospects Dr. Hazarika shifted his base to Kolkata and then to Mumbai. He already directed and composed music for a Bengali film, MAHUT BANDHU RE in 1958. He also composed music for some other Bengali films like JIBAN TRISHNA, JONAKAR ALO, KARI O KOMAL, ASAMAPTA, EKHANE PINJAR, DAMPATI, CHAMELI MEMSAAB, SHIMANA PERYE, DUI and BECHARA.

In Mumbai, he was first associated with film director Atma Ram (Guru Dutt’s brother) whose film YE GULISTAN HAMARA (1972) staring evergreen Dev Anand, Sharmila Tagore, Pran, etc. was shoot in Coal India’s colliery at Margherita in Tinsukia district of Assam with the help and support of Dr. Hazarika. Then, he composed music for first Hindi film, AAROP (1973) directed by Atma Ram starring Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra and Saira Banu and the songs of the film became very popular particularly the duet, “Nainon Mein Darpan Hai” by Lata-Kishore. In late 1970s, he was linked with director Shyam Beneal’s assistant, Kalpana Lajmi, daughter of painter Lalita Lajmi and niece of Atma Ram who worked with him too as an assistant director in Assamese film Mon Prajapati (1979). He became producer, music composer, playback singer for the film EK PAL (1986) in which Kalpana Lajmi debuted as a director and it was mainly filmed in Assam. Since then Dr. Bhupen Hazarika is being managed by Kalpana Lajmi professionally and personally till death. He also composed music for Lajmi’s other films: RUDDALI (1993), DARMIYAAN (1997), DAMAN (2001) and KYON? (2003).For making of these films, lots of his earlier songs was translated to Hindi mainly by Gulzar Sahab, out of which the song from Ruddali, “Dil Hoom Hoom Kare Ghabraye” sung by Lata Mangeshkar became very popular which was adopted from Assamese film MANIRAM DEWAN (1955). He also composed music for Bimal Dutt’s PRATIMURTI (1993), Sai Paranjype’s PAPIHA (1995) & SAAZ (1998), Lekh Tandon’s MIL GAYEE MANZIL MUJHE (1996) and M. F. Hussain’s GAJA GAMINI (2000).

Awards and Recognitions:

Bhupen Hazarika got President’s Silver Medal for three Assamese films: SAKUNTALA (1961), PRATIDHWANI (1964) and LATI-GHATI (1966) directed by him. He got National Award for best music director for regional film for CHAMELI MEMSAAB (1975). He was honored Padma Shri in 1977, Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1987, Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1992 and Padma Bhusan in 2001. In 1993, he was conferred as the first Indian Music Director for best music Internationally for the film RUDAALI at the Asia Pacific International Film Festival in Japan. Government of Assam honored him with Shankerdev Award in 1987 and Asom Ratna in 2009, the highest civilian award in the State of Assam. The Government of Bangladesh has honored him with “The Muktijodha Award” posthumously immediately after his death.

Mohammed Rafi and Dr. Bhupen Hazarika both were firstly great human beings, then emblems of nation and the uncrowned king of Indian Music Industry with national and international acclamation. Rafi Sahab was the first recognized playback singer of Indian Cinema who dominated Hindi Film Music from 1949 to 1969 and then to 1980 in top most rank, sang over 28,000 songs including regional language songs. Dr. Bhupen Hazarika was a poet, lyricist, singer, musician and filmmaker whose creations are marked by sympathy and universal brotherhood. His songs written and sung mainly in Assamese language by himself and have been translated and sung in many languages, most notable in Bengali and Hindi. He was the uncrowned king of not only of Assam, but also of entire North-Eastern India’s cultural heritage. He was broadly recognized in Hindi Film Industry for introducing the sounds and folk music of Assamand North-East Region to Hindi Film. Both were the real Bharat Ka Ranta, but who were not all acknowledged in their lifetime. Some State Governments and Indian Public already declared both of them as “BHARAT  RATNA”. But it is most pertinent to mention that Government of India still not honored Mohammed Rafi with Bharat Ratna posthumously after thirty years from his early demise on 31st July,1980. Consequently, there is also have doubts about that Dr. Bhupen Hazarika may be honored with Bharat Ratna posthumously.

    for the record pls….. we love all our music legends. we dont have to show it to kk lovers this aspect.

    i love kishore kumar – hugely. but, not his fans (some). this is so ’cause they lack decency and decorum.

    for the record, i have met kishore da , spoke to him and instantly fell in love with him.

    i have friends who only sing kk songs. i am hosting a show remembering legends Jagjit Singh, Talat Mehmod and Mohd Rafi on 12th Sunday at Birla in Mumbai. we dont need to advertise our love to kk to kk fans. so, pls dont ‘sing’ out of tune at our rafi site – KK lovers.

    i have not met mohd rafi saaheb but heard him many times face to face. he is in my soul.

    many of my friends are aware of this.

    kk fans (some) pls do not come here and try to provoke rafi fans and do take care of your site for the sake of legend kishore da.

    akshay bisht sahab, (reference to your all posts)

    when binu ji has said the wordings that was in different context, but you take it in wrong way and your comment – Quote: – binu niar
    Aap k.k,manna dey,mukesh se itna chidhtey kyun inko gaana nahi aata tha ya rafi inke barabar nahi ga sakte the. — unquote

    The second sentence in your above remark provoke any rafi fan because you are so clearly said rafi sahab KK, manna aur mukesh jaisa nahi ga sakte. You alone can judge whatever you said is appropriate. you think it and tell is is it the nice way to write a comment about the legend – Rafi Saab.

    andrea correa ji has said all those things in reply to what and how you provoke rafi fans. Please follow the decorum of this site and refrain from hurting comments to rafi fans.

    I am very much thankful to you because you wrote such a nice English that I can understand it very well.

    Thank you

    Zaheen Danish

    andrea ji
    Great you are well known that what happen in k.ks site and iam a worm who visit other sites.
    And i believe what i said about legends,because i heard their music and i really appreciated each of them.but koi baat nahi apke samajh me nahi aanewala,because the frog of well nothing see besides its wall.

  17. andrea correa says:

    truly this bisht has some human aspects along with some of his beastly psycho

    behaviours… he loves all the legends he says but cant believe yet.

    apna site ko thoda sudharo ji….. fir charcha karte hai.

  18. akshay bisht says:

    andrea correa
    After your sweet comments i realise that there no use of talking to idiots,they take you to their level.and i know your level of idiotism and your society of living.
    Sunil ji
    You just said that there is no bad comment for greats like kishore da[sayad aap andrea ji ke comment nahi padte].
    Can you explain about the binu’s comment in which he not remembered k.k.,mukesh,manna dey,
    And i write about noble prize for dual fans of k.k and rafi.sorry if you feel hurt.
    Zaheen ji
    This is english hope you understand

  19. andrea correa says:

    when a ‘worm’ comes out, this bisht character shows his beast tendency (ies) and visits other site(s).

    we call it ‘Keedas’ . these few can give KK only a bad name and imageas neither can they write on their site not they can think original.

    KK must be really feeling sorry for his illiterate fans……

  20. i thought today’s politician has lost his way with words, extremely humiliating to the avathaar that his divine website too is used to abuse with gay abandon, unmindful of the sentiments others present here.

    as an author, i reveal a great amount of my own self in my writing – literally washing the subject matter thread bare to evoke the right feeling it is supposed to achieve – what pains have i gone through in this great journey.

    have i ever given a least bit of thought and the toll it takes on others when i purposefully, use loose thoughts, hurting language, while letting loose most unwarranted filth into this otherwise organised and divine dedicated website of rafi sahab.

    a request to all rafi bhakths – my sentimental views are just my most personal expression and it is better none repond to it.

    if i am able to convey a message and bring a sense of order with a smile – i think rafi sahab would thank you all.

    adaab rafi

    Bisht saheb , Mujhe nagin pata ki aap kis baatt se itne khafa hain lekin main aapko yeh chalenge karta hun ki is forum mein kisi bhi kalakar ke bare mein koi galat comment kiya gaya ho. Kyonki khud Binu Ji ko kai baar pada hai woh sabhi singers ki bahut izzat karte hain . Aisa shayad hi koi dusra forum hoga jahan par dusre singers ko bhi izzat di jaati hai. Baaki aap kishore Da ya kisi aur ke Fan ho yeh aap ki soch aur samajh hai hum aapki choice ki respect karte hain lekin aap yeh soche ki baki bhi aap se sehmat ho ye possible nahin hai jis tarh se aap ko haq hai usi tarah se dusron ko haq hai ki apni pasand khud chunne ka. Aap apni rai kisi dusre par thop nahin sakte.
    Is Desh ke log apni pasand zahir kar chuke hain aur Rafi saheb ko singer of the millenium chun liya ab agar aap isse sehmat ho ua na ho aap ko majority logon ke pasand ki respect karni chaihye aur accept karna chaiye ki Rafi saheb jaisa koi dusra singer Is jahan mein abhi tak nahin aaya hai.
    Baki agar kisi ek ne koi galat comment kiya toh aap sabhi fans ko galat nahin keh sakte. Also I would like to add i don’t agree with Andrea’s comments i feel are unnecessary should have been avoided.

  22. Zaheendanish says:

    commentators are requested to write their comments in English only rather in Roman Hindi. such long comments are very difficult to read in Roman Hindi, or you can write the same commments in simple english which everyone can understand. I hope my request will be obliged.

    Sayad aap logo ko galatfahmi ho rahi hai ki jo bhi maine likha wo distructive hai,maine isiliye nahi likha ki aap log itne udaash ho jayenge,sayad aaplog ek tarfa sochte hai,aur maine k.k,mukesh,manna dey wali baat isiliye likhi ki binu ji ne jab singing pearls wala comment likha toh in teeno ka naam nahi likha,agar aap sirf naam ke fans hai toh its alright par agar aap sach me music ke deewane hai toh sabko respect dena sikhiye,aisa nahi hai ki main rafi ko pasand nahi karta,sab singers kamaal they,par aap log hi inko izzat nahi dete,aur dukh ki baat toh yeh hai ki andrea toh itne frustrated ho gaye ki kishore da jaisi mahan personility ki personal life tak pahuch gaye,unhe ye haq kisne diya,agar seedhe kahun to unki aukaat nahi hai.par aapne unse toh kuch nahi kaha.main bhi rafi ka fan hu,par ye nahi pata tha ki yahan rafi sahab ke fan kam aur acche singers ke critics jyaada hai,jo kisi fan ko neecha dikhane ke liye kisi had tak ja sakte hai.maine rafi ke liye toh koi galat baat nahi likhi,fir itni chid kyun aur noble prize wali baat koi galat toh nahi.aisa aap se koi nahi jisne kishore da ke gaane na sune ho,aur sayad hi koi hoga jisne gaano ko pasand na kiya ho,toh ek bahas me bane rehne ke liye itni gande comments kyun.rafi ne toh sirf filmo me gaane gaye par kishore da ne to film ke har vibhag me kaam kiya hai,phir log unke kaam ki alochana na kar sakne par personal baato ko bhi nahi chodte.what a great rafi fans.

    My request to all pl maintain the decorum of this site no personal comments please. Akshay saheb Aap Rafi saheb ya kishore Da ki gaayaki ki baat karein toh zayada behtar hoga. koi aisi baat na karein jisse Rafi saheb ke fans ko aakrosh ho. Ho sakta hai aap kishore Da ke fan ho koi baat nahim lekin yeh rafi saheb ka forum hai . Toh yeh Noble prize ki baat kishore Da ke liye Rafi ke forum mein kyon kar rahein hai aap ka forum band ho gaya hai kya ya wahan koi aata jaata nahin hai isiliye apni bhadas aap yahan nikal rahein hai. If you want to write something constructive you are welcome otherwise if u are interested in creating ruckus you better find some other place for that. Aapko shayad kahan se galatfehmi hai ki hum log Manadey aur Mukesh se chidte hain . Manna Dey him self said “Rafi saheb is an institution himself”. I respect Manna dey & Mukesh and for that matter Kishor da also . But it is people like you who do not respect kishore Da when kishore kumar himself gave playback singing of songs picturised on him to rafi saheb because he felt that rafi saheb will be able to do justice to these songs so must respect that decision of his . He realized that rafi saheb is a better exponent of classical singing. Mahendra kapoor always held Rafi saheb as his guru. Moreover people of this country have chosen Rafi saheb as the singer of the millennium.
    people are supreme Yeh logon ka hi pyaar hai jo is forum mein log khiche chale aate hai. Warna ek aapka bhi forum hai jahan koi bhule se bhi nahin jaata . Jabtak yeh Duniya kayam hai Rafi saheb ke liye logon ka pyaar rahega .kyonki woh na kewal ek Mahan gayak they balki ek sacche insaan bhi they. Baki mein koi aapke liye ya kishore Da ke liye personal comment karna theek nahin samajhta hun. kyonki main jaanta hun isse ek sache Fan ke dil mein dukh pahunchta hai aur aap bhi is baat ka dhyan rakhenge.

    Binu Ji, If you remember i had written in this forum what was said about rafi fans in KK site . When I protested and appealed to withdraw bad comments on Rafi fans were not accepted instead my comments were put on hold. I want to ask this gentleman where was he when Rafi fans were called as Muslims or Pakistanis. Did he protested there . I am astonished how this gentleman ( i am calling him gentleman) can say things about rafi fans I never heard any thing bad said about any singer. we love Rafi saheb but never say bad about others we think all other singers including Kishore Da , Mukeshi ji, Manna Dey are legends . I would like to point out just few days back some had commented bad things about Ashaji and all of us condemned that and forced that person to accept his mistake, does this thing happens in KK forum. We are proud to be in this forum which sets example for other forums. I welcome you express your views bit it should be unbiased. I know that site of KK is barren and not

  36. santosh my friend,

    i knew at the very outset, you never meant any harm right from the word go.
    rafi sahab evokes a plethora of hues from humans on this dear earth. our love for rafi sahab and the way he and his legacy is being treated by our indian govt by not justifying the very existance of the bharat ratna not having decorated the award with rafi sahab’s name is an insult to bharat ratna itself.

    these babu’s sitting in delhi, look for their own TRP ratings when ever they have to uplift any name or award. without a glimmer of benefit to their personal coffers by way of ” corrupt money ” receivables, they would not even give a teeny weeny bit of a thought to it.

    you and i and all at can die and perish not having seen the award with rafi sahab’s name etched, the babu’s wont even sulk or feel remorsed to say the least.

    hence, in the backdrop of such a feeling – you would have given vent to your pent up feelings – perfectly understandable. lets all learn a lesson from this and march towards positivity – why not start canvassing for rafi sahab in all fora relentlessly – so that the world gets up and takes notice.

    it should hit like a sunaamee – rafi sahab rafi sahab rafi sahab – every where.

    but – a word of caution

    lets not say or do anything by any way that it hurts others sentiments – rafi sahab should never be glorified by belittling other ” legends “.

    yes, i agree, rafi sahab is incomparable – he is there right on top – but – that does not mean the entire world and all in it is ” thrash “.

    a request to all rafi bhakts – kindly let this discussion to rest and term it as closed.

    santoshji has appologised and it is deemed accepted by all.

    jai ho rafi sahab – tussi vaakai great ho – hum aapkey bandhey hain.

    When you compare your post and my post you might have very well understood my knowneldge, I do not need any certification from you to my knowledge about legends. If you would have called himesh reshmiyya and sonu nigam legends I would have accepted and laughed aloud to your remark as they still not yet grown to be called as legends, but when you said <: It is laughable when someone calls asha a legend, suriya a legend or saigal saab a legend.They were ordinary singers. So I feel we should use the word with discretion.<: I had reacted a bilt violent that is very much evident in my post. Even some veteran rafians did not even felt to reply to your vehemence, what a cold attitute!

    Therefore Santoshi Ji be wise when passing comments on big personalities, even after they dead and gone, they still retain the respect in the eyes and hearts of millions of music lovers.

  38. santosh says:

    Dear All rafi bhakts,

    I apologise to you all if my comments have hurt you.My intention was never to hurt anyone.My point of contention is that today the word legend is used very casually .You label any guy a legend.Tell me all of you is there any playback singer who can match upto rafi saab.The truth is THERE IS NONE.We should restrict the use of words like legend because the word signifies a person who was above all, a trendsetter, and uniquiely different from the contempories and present alike & above all a very good human being.So once again i am sorry to all & Mr.Zaheenadhish keep your knowledge to yourself.In this ear of rubbish songs like Kolavaride anything can be legend.The fact is that such labels are cheap and used inadvertently without discretion.RAFI SAAB YOU WERE THE TRUE LEGEND OF PLAYBACK SINGING, TUSSI GREAT HO. Ramesh Kurpadji apologies to you too.But you can understand the fustration of justice denied to Rafi saab behind all my outpours.

  39. walijah saheb,

    i would request pradeepji ( ) that post 6, dated 31st january 2012 – 3.14 pm, be re-published with a title ” legends of HFM ” – author H.A.K.WALIJAH

    walijah saheb has taken a lot pains to write so much of detail that if i was a moderator, i would have done this chore all by myself and then informed the author of my action taken.

    thanks also goes to biman daa in giving such a great oration on yet another indian singing legend – dr.bhupen hazarika. i just adore his voice and admire his persona.

    his passing away was a universal loss to music, especially folklore.

    dear santoshji,
    It is very disappointing that you made such a comment.

Any person who has made remarkable work in his respective field can be called as legend.amitji,ashaji all are living legends. we all real rafi lovers expect a detail article on a legend from you soon to know the defination of legend.

    Santosh Ji,

    (post 2)

    Either you write that comment in ignorance or intentionally, you only knows it better than anybody else. However, you made sad so many music lovers calling swargiya K.L. Saigal Sahab and swargiya Surayya Ji as well as calling living legend Asha Bhosle an ordinary singer. You need to apoligize for saying so.



  44. H.A.K. Walijah says:

    Suraiya – A tribute on her death anniversary January 31

    Aside from Lata Mangeshkar Suraiya is among my top favourite female singers. She debuted as a child artiste in 1942 (film Sharda). Within three years she rose to become one of the top singing stars acting opposite the greatest legend KL Saigal in 3 films. Within the next three years her beauty, singing and romantic pairing with Dev Anand both on-screen and off-screen became a national craze.

    Her voice had none of the roughness and sharpness characteristic of the style of 40s. Her singing was rounded, smooth and extremely melodious. She belonged to the 40s, she belonged to 50s and 60s, and you hear her today, she does not sound dated. There is something timeless about her singing. Therefore, I was surprised to read many accounts that she was herself quite dismissive about her singing abilities – that it was her good looks that made her a star and it was great composers who created melodious and simple tunes which even an unaccomplished singer like her could sing. In early fifties she was also contemplating that Lata Mangeshkar could give playback for her, which the music directors wisely rejected. Whether she was a trained singer or not, for me she is one of the most melodious and delightful singers.
    The end of her relationship with Dev Anand because of family pressure and Lata Mangeshkar emerging as the dominant voice made her gradually withdraw from films; from mid-60s she became a complete recluse and out of public sight. Suraiya suffered her pain within herself and died a lonely death on January 31, 2004.

    KL Saigal whose death anniversary falls on January 18. Suraiya was his last heroine, and the last and one of the greatest singing stars of Hindi films.

    I pay my tribute to her with my favourite songs of her second phase -50s and 60s.

    1. Manmor hua matwala from Afsar (1950), lyrics Narendra Sharma, music SD Burman

    Based on Gogol’s Inspector General, this Dev Anand-Suraiya starrer had two great Suraiya songs composed by SDB. It is difficult choice between two outstanding songs Nain diwane and Manmor. Manmor hua matwala has a haunting feel about it with elongated Manmor sounding like an echo and beautiful flute piece.

    2. Ae shama tu bata from Dastan (1950), lyrics Shakeel Badayuni music Naushad

    AR Kardar – Naushad combination is unusual for Raj Kapoor. This film has great music with 9 songs by Suraiya (solos and duets). With such a treasure it is difficult to choose one, but Ae shama tu bata is incredibly beautiful and has excellent picturisation. The story seems to be a replay of Andaz (1949), with now Suraiya on the piano, with ambiguity between the two lovers Suresh and Raj Kapoor. I find that aside from his Charlie Chaplin act, Raj Kapoor is master of such scenes of ambiguous relationships. 3. Koi dil mein samaya chupke chupke from Kamal Ke Phool (1950), lyrics Rajendra Krishna, music Shyam Sundar

    This is a virtually unknown film, the other cast being names like Amarnath, Raj Mehra etc. But Shyam Sundar was a highly respected composer of his time. And with Suraiya he creates a masterpiece, though not so well known.

    4. Majboor nashad hun main from Shaan (1950), lyrics Rajendra Krishna, music Hansraj Bahal

    Does this song reflect the anguish in her personal life? A beautiful, but less heard song.

    5. Raste pe hum khade hain dil beqarar lekar from Rajput (1951), lyrics Kaif Irfani, music Hansraj Bahal

    Suraiya again in her sweet voice expressing pathos, composed by one of the great composers of early 50’s.

    6. Raton ki neend chheen li ankhon ke intezaar ne from Shokhiyan (1951), lyrics Kidar Sharma, music Jaml Sen

    An unhard melody by a virtually unknown composer, but this song can easily rank among Siraiya’s sweetest song.

    7. Meri zindagi mein tum kyun aye from Goonj (1952), lyrics DN Madhok, music Shardul Qwatra

    Many songs of the period have become poignant because of the sadness in her personal life. As this extremely beautiful song carrying Punjabi folk style shows, Shardul Qwatra, one of the forgotten composers, deserves greater recognition. 8. Mora nazuk badan from Deewana (1952), lyrics Shakeel Badayuni, music Naushad

    9. Nigahein kyun milayi thi agar yun hi chhod jana tha from Laal Kunwar (1952), lyrics Sahir Ludhiyanvi, music SD Burman

    We keep on getting poignant songs as if she was expressing her inner feelings.

    10. Parwanon se preet seekh le from Bilwamangal (1954), lyrics DN Madhok, music Bulo C Rani

    One of all time favourites of Suraiya.

    11. Rahiye ab aisi jagah chalkar jahan koi na ho from Mirza Ghalib (1954), lyrics Ghalib, music Ghulam Mohammad

    Mirza Ghalib was a landmark film of her career for her sensitive acting and beautiful singing. The film won National Award for the best film. After KL Saigal, her rendering of Ghalib was recognised as a masterpiece. When she gave good songs in a movie, it did not come in one or two’s, the songs poured. Mirza Ghalib was one such movie. Among her many outstanding songs the poignant Rahiye ab aisi jagah chalkar jahan koi na ho also refleceted her own personal life in which she had withdrawn from the outside world.

    12. Mera dildar na milaya from Shama Parwana (1954), lyrics Majrooh Sultanpuri, music, Husnlal Bhagatram

    This is a twin song, its twin version sung by Mohammad Rafi. Suraiya is so sweet that this is one of the exceptions to my rule that male versions are better in twin songs. Shama Parwana has Shammi Kapoor in the lead role in one of his earlier films as a staid hero in moustache, before his transformation into the rebel hero we know.

    13. Taron ki nagri se chanda ne from Waris (1954), lyrics Qamar Jalalabadi, music Anil Biswas

    The most famous song from this film is Rahi matwale which has many versions. But this less heard lullaby should rank among the sweetest.

    14. Mast ankhon mein shararat kabhi aisi to na thi from Shama (1961), lyrics Kaifi Azmi, music Ghulam Mohammad

    15. Ye kaisi ajab dastan ho gayi hai from Rustam Sohrab (1963), lyrics Qamar Jalalabadi, music Sajjad Hussain

    Rustam Sohrab was her last film composed by the maverick and temperamental genius Sajjad Hussain. And what stunning music he creates with Suraiya in her swan song. One feels sad just to imagine how much talent was left in her when she decided to withdraw from scene.

    Santosh ji, [ post # 2]

    Your comment is more of a laughable stock and idiotic. You may be having eyes but put blindfold, you may have ears but hearing impaired, you may have full senses but biased. It is no doubt that Rafi Saab is a legend by all means, does it mean that you have taken it for granted to insult other legends, like KL Saigal, Surayya and Asha Bhosle calling them ordinary singers. I think, actually, you do not know the meaning of LEGEND; you are advised to know the meaning of legend first then try to write comment on the word legend. For your information, a legend refers to – celebrity, star, phenomenon, genius, spectacle, wonder, big name, marvel, prodigy, luminary, you may not know that Saigal saab was the first singing star in his times so as Surayya – the second singing actress after Noor Jahna. When we come to Asha Bhosle, she is the living legend along with her sister Lata Mangeshkar. How come you say that they are ordinary singers? Have you lost your senses or you gone mad, how can you say such insulting words towards the true legends of their times. I strongly protest against your views and idiotic utterance.

  46. santoshji,


    with utmost respect to your sensibilities and even greater respect to your views and right to opine – i beg to differ. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i am not debating or arguing just stating what has always been stated widely – rafi sahab himself has expressed that saigal sahab was like his guru and he idolised him.

    o.k. you may have a point in case, but, may have shaken the beehive as you are mentioning great names and people may not take it kindly.

    swargiya kundan lal sehgal sahab and suraiyyajee are great names and human beings in the world of HFM.

    both are loved voices so very unique that they are used a yardstick by the industry even today and their ” gayakee and adaayakee ” are spoken off as folklore.

    all the best to you santoshji,

    hats off to you biman for a fantastic write up on bhupendaa.

    it is sad that none have ventured into writing about him.

    dr.bhupen hazarika was an institution by himself and those who know his worth and those who have understood his work – know what a national asset he was.

    none can replace this doyen and he is truly a picture of assameese folk and the folklore in india.

    i can guaarantee you biman daa that none will ever write about bhupen hazarika the way you have and i do not know if there are many who have it in them to write about bhupen daa.

    on behalf of all at, i thank you profusely for this beautiful peace of writing on dr.bhupen hazarika.

    Nowdays the word legend has lost relevance.Any tom dick and harry are legends.With reference to music industry any person be it music director, singer, lyricist etc associated with golden era of those who are no more are referred to as legends.The only legend in singing is rafi saab in true sense of the word.

    It is laughable when someone calls asha a legend, suriya a legend or saigal saab a legend.They were ordinary singers.So I feel we should use the word with discretion.
