Mohammad Rafi is a blessed singer

By Mahesh Prasad Rijal

Mohd Rafi

Mohd Rafi

Mohammad Rafi was a tremendously blessed singer and truly a good human being (as far as I have seen him in his videos and interviews). I never got my biggest opportunity to meet my most adorable person actually in real life as I don’t live in India nor Pakistan but in Nepal, a country that is close to where he had been coming and going during his lifetime, unfortunately I didn’t got my chance to get near the appraised one, but I have kept him very close to my heart. He has given me a sense of love towards his country and I feel that I too belong to the same group below him and following him, living on his songs and admiring his voice every-time I hear them.

I believe that although everybody can give birth to children, but as a child he was someone who could not be limited to a normal child but blessed from the day of his birth, his internal ability flourished later but as it did his voice was recognized to be one of the greatest that would plough an evergreen tree into the sands of music and give millions a chance to enjoy its fruits for generations to come.

I want to express my gratitude for all his priceless gifts that shall remain in our memories forever. His voice resembles to God. I am now on my 54 and I still respect him a lot. He has made me a singer as well . His songs are rooted in my memories and I can’t sing anything other than his songs, so I don’t even want to create my own album. I can’t even copy him to make myself known but sing sometime between my company and friends to make him known for I really want people to recognize who he was. A small paragraph of his famous song that is also one of my personal favorite:

Mohd Rafi

Mohd Rafi

Tu mere saamne hai, Teri julfein hai khuli, tera aachal hai dhala, mein bhala hosh mein kaise rahoo

At last I want to thank you for letting me express my glimpse of gratitude through this page. I hope you’ll take them positively and convey my best wishes for his family and his descendants…
