Mohammad Rafi, a great singer and human being…

The awesome and brilliant combination of the lyricists and music directors of the era gone by, rendering compositions on versatile playback singer and genius, Rafi Sahab, have given to us and for generations to come, almost permanent melodies for a life time, with depth and unimaginable musical vibrations. Each and every song of Rafi Sahab has that depth, emotion, and feeling and above all, often surpassed the expectations of the music directors in his renditions.



Some of the challenging compositions have been rendered with ease and comfort by Rafi Sahab that one normally would not dare to even attempt to sing. Every true music lover would acknowledge the utmost sincerity and deep rooted devotion in musical compositions and with surpassing dexterity in its singing by the one and only musical singing legend, Rafi Sahab, during the generation gone by.

As I often feel, more and more we talk about Rafi Sahab, there is more to it. His songs when heard again and again, gives every time, a new route to a totally new world of melody and ecstasy.

Rafi Sahab, in my opinion, besides being a great singer, was extremely sincere and devoted in his renditions, as can be seen from every song that he has given us. Sincerity and devotion pays off naturally with avalanche of reward and success. It seems to me, almost certainly that Rafi Sahab never ever worried or attached any commercial expectation to any song that he performed but only focused on the quality and perfection of the rendition and improving, every time, his singing abilities. Never ever it seemed at any time, even when was acclaimed the unique magic voice machine, that he had slackened in his performances or otherwise to his attitude towards life and human relationship.

To me, Rafi Sahab, although I have never met him, is a human being that one should worship (which, of course we all do even today), and more importantly practice the great human kindness that he radiated throughout his lifetime, beyond being a great accomplished singer that anyone would aspire for.

    Good Article.

    Rafi Sb’s smiling face always impresses us. Besides his divine voice and his dedication to music he was a great person, his personality was enchanted. His melodious voice and his way of speaking is attractive and his generosity obvious from his voice. Indian music is lucky to have such a great singer and human being.

    Long Live Rafi Sb.
