It’s Been 6 Years Since The Legend Departed

While jotting down the points I want to write I found myself humming “Ranjish hi sahi dil hi dukhanay k liye aa”. Born on 18 July 1927 in a village called Luna in Jhunjhunu district in British India into a family of traditional musicians Mehdi Hassan the king of melody and the soul of all the Koel infused rhythm songs in Lollywood and in Bollywood. He is the 16th generation of his family to carry on their heritage. His voice is truly haunting and is the part and parcel of every heart break. His songs put life to love. The sweetness in his voice is moderate and so on point.

It was his divine vocals that madam Lata Mangheshar claimed that “Aisay lagta hai k unke gale mein bhagwan boltein hain”. Mehdi Hassan fought with lung disease in his last age, the sickness lasted for very long. It is to be said with great sorrow that even his family spoke up demanding help for the government and as far as I remember the world just waited for the legend to die on his own. On his 6th death anniversary here are some of his song that will keep up company with you in your hard times.

• Jab koi piyar se bulaye ga

• Mujhay tm nazar se

• Ranjish hi sahi

• Rafta Rafta wo meri

• Gulon main rang bhare
