Happy Birthday Kishore Kumar

Today was the 82nd Birth Anniversary of my favorite singer Kishore Kumar. He has always been with me all the time. He croons zindagi ek safar hain suhana when I fear about my future...he sings rim jhim gire sawaan when it rains the first time in Mumbai every June...he advices me by singing kuch toh log kahenge logon ka kaam hain kehna when I lose my temper on narrow minded people. He echoed my sentiments when he sang din hain suhana aaj pehli tarikh hain...the first time I got my salary. He is always there with me during all my ups and downs.

He may have had plenty of affairs, may have married four times...he may have been short tempered and unpredictable but he always touched our heart. His versatile voice, his comic abilities and his famous yodling are still remembered by everyone.

I love almost every Kishore Kumar song...but there is one which I particularly love the most. I am sharing the video here...do listen to this song. Sad the songs that are made today are vulgar and thrash. Enjoy this song and get immersed in the beautiful lyrics.

And here are the lyrics:

kuchh toh log kahenge, logo kaa kam hain kehna

chhodo bekar kee bato me kahee bit naa jayey raina

kuchh rit jagat kee aisi hai, har ek subah kee sham huyi

too kaun hai, tera nam hain kya, sita bhi yaha badanam huyi

fir kyo sansar kee bato se bhig gaye tere naina

hamko jo tane dete hai, ham khoye hain in rang raliyo me

hamne unako bhi chhup chhup ke aate dekha in galiyo me

yeh sach hain jhuthe bat nahee tum bolo yeh sach hain naa

He had that unique "easy going" kind of feel with his songs. Good, young people of this generation remembering him is good :)

yes yaar I agree, he was one of the most creative personalities ever born!

I agree with you. He is a LEGEND. No one can come anywhere near his versatile ways. He could sing songs with serious notes like KUCHH TO LOG as well as songs like EENAA MEENA DEEKA or PAANCH RUPEIYA BARHAN AANAA with equal aplomb.

Take care
