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
