QUOTE(nasir @ Jan 6 2007, 10:55 PM) *

Sajdahji you write as though you're possessed. And why not? You're surely enthraldled by the soul of Rafi Sahaab - which many of us fans cannot claim.

Cheers and more power to your pen.

All the best.

With warm regards,

NASIR.

p.s. It is unfortunate that I came across this writing only now. smile.gif

NASIR.


Rafi sahab sings as though possessed – anyone who dares to write about him ought to display some of that quality themselves, else let their pen forever be damned – that’s just how I feel.

However, that doesn’t allow me the privilege to exercise any greater claim over him or his music anymore than anyone of his other devotees, who I am sure would any day surpass me in both passion and devotion towards him. And why wouldn’t they ?
The Rafi brand of heady charm is so highly contagious that no one seems to want to be exempt from it.

‘More power to my pen” – thanks so much for those words of encouragement Nasir sahab.

There’s a saying, 'be careful what you wish for and it could very well come true' – I am not so sure that anyone would enjoy seeing that ‘spectacle’ ( Not exactly music to the ears ! ), and I am no killjoy.

I am no crowd pleaser either. So, the wait might be too long and weary for some.

Sajdah

Sajdah-ji,

Great job!!!

Thanks for the clips to Pradeep and to Nadeem for the beautiful image. wink.gif

I can't write as good as you Sajdah-ji, but I i know one thing. That this man has changed me forever.

He is in my life and heart every single day that goes by. When I feel sad he gives me comfort and I fload away on the waves of his incredible beautiful voice. I cannot imagine a human being having such a beautiful voice. But still he had it!

Were it not, that i heard it myself, otherwise it would be hard to believe. More than 26 years have gone by since he left us. More than 65 years have gone by since he sang his first movie-song, but after all these years, no one ever came even close to him.

And it is not their fault. Its the magnificent combination of ingredients present in Rafi-saabs voice and voice-ability, that make him incomparable. All these fine ingredients are never present in one person, but he had them al lined up. And to make it even more complex for competition, it was all built on a magnificent character and personality:

So now its even multiple impossible to come close to him, because you have to beat far too much aspects in his voice and character. And that my friends, IS impossible.

May ALLAH grant him Paradise !!!

Happy birthday my dear and beloved Mohammed Rafi-sahab. !!! May you rest in peace !!!


Harold sahab, if fine sounding words are all that it takes to make a writer of anyone, then everyone on this planet would be an author, and acclaimed ones at that. Thank goodness, that’s not the case.

You mentioned in your tribute that “this man changed you forever” – that’s just it.

That one statement says it all, anything more would be superfluous.

Sajdah

And i mean it too rolleyes.gif

Sajdah-ji,

What a beautiful and soul-touching write-up, many thanks Sajdah-ji. You've put all of our feelings wonderfully in writing...God Bless You.
I couldn't agree more that "There are very few singers’ in this world who could hold sway over people’s hearts and souls, defying Time and Age..."


Nadeem sahab,
Many thanks for the photo tribute


And Pradeep-ji,
Thanks a lot for the 15-clips tribute, I loved it. This must have taken you enourmous amount of time to put-together...Splendid Work!

smile.gif I think you could be right, I must be blessed to have received so much love and affection from everyone who loves Rafi sahab as much as I do.

Rafi:bhakt ji – Forgive me for saying this, but from your ‘nick’ it’s obvious that I am talking to an even more passionate devotee of Rafi sahab than I ever could be. Correct me if I am wrong !
And for even wanting to share those beautiful thoughts and feelings about the write-up – Thank you.

Sajdah

Sajdah-ji,
you're right, I simply love The Humble Soul - Badshah of Music Rafi-Sahab.
Although don't think I'm more passionate than you or many other devotees. This is the sole reason I find immense pleasure in this forum - to learn, share and simply enjoy the pure magic of Rafi Sahab

Hi all,
Great that you all can write about him so nicely. I can' do that (not gifted for that), so, no words, ony passion, emotions, feelings, dreams, ..... Just enjoy this one. How simple, how beautiful... . In fact, wanted to select a special one to add here, but I couldn't (which one to add? there are so many of them from him), so I just picked one that was in front of me to add here.

Rafi:Bhakt ji, I am just a learner too (and a Seeker too tongue1.gif of songs more precious than Life itself ! ) –the simple Truth is you can soak in a lifetime of Rafi sahab’s songs and still be left thirsty. Soul thirsty. It’s a thirst I would never want to be quenched. Ever.

ohmy.gif Allright, I take that back. I think I was too hasty when I made that remark.
Guess someone on the forum doesn’t particularly share that fondness for Rafi sahab ( the write-up was on him ! ) – or is it just me ? A ‘heretic’ in the midst of ‘devotees’ ?

Bless you whoever did that ( I am referring to those ‘coveted’ little ‘stars’ – this thread’s constellation is missing two of them, I just happened to notice ! ).

Where five proved insufficient to light the way, I am not so sure three would accomplish that.

I am counting on none. ninja.gif

Sajdah ji, 'haste' is not something that I would associate with you, or for that matter with the remarks that you made. No, definitely not!

As a matter of fact, the only ‘haste’ in the whole of this thread is the one with which the other members have replied to your beautifully penned piece about the greatness of Rafi Sahab, and of course, not to forget, it is also in ‘haste’ that I post my thoughts after going through this lovely article that you have written.

However, what is not ‘hasty’ is my response, especially, when you compare it with the ‘haste’ with which you wrote this piece in order for it to be posted on Rafi Sahab’s birthday, which was, well, a month and a half ago, and my reading this piece precisely a month and a half later!

This is getting nowhere….. or is it? Well, I am sure confused!

Ok, let me make things a little clearer or at least try to:

“Sajdah ji, kucch kehne ke kaabil nahin jo kah paate,
magar kucch baat hai jo kahe bina reh nahin paate,
kya batayen aapko kyon der lagi itni, kucch kehne mein,
bas itna jaan lijiye ke hum kho gaye the apni duniya mein….
uss duniya mein jo is forum se aage hai…
uss duniya mein jahan raaste to hain magar manzilon ki talash hai…
uss duniya se waqt mila to aaye yahan,
magar waqt kab kiske liye ruka, jab aaj aapka article pada, to yeh mehsoos hua….
Maafi ki umeed karte hain magar saza bhi sar aankhon par rakhte hain !”


All in all a great piece, yet again! And, by the way, before you count all your blessings, as it seems you have already done in your last post, albeit with a bit of ‘haste’ this time, make sure you don't forget to include one from my side as well!

Legend Rafi ( Gaurav ji ) – As far as I know there’s no ‘expiry date’ on this thread tongue1.gif maybe I didn’t look close enough. ninja.gif Tell you what, I’ll do that as soon as I finish posting this. tongue1.gif

This is more than a surprise, to hear from you after such a long while. Still I am very glad you did. The why’s don’t matter, it’s enough that you made time to notice this thread and post a line or two. Or a para or two. rolleyes.gif I am not complaining. tongue1.gif

When I look back on my time at HF, I can’t help thinking that it might not have turned out to be so eventful, if there hadn’t been such helpful, kind folks like you and so many others - I wish I could name them all. All those encouraging words never failed to work its magic on me - this is just a spell, and i am caught right in the middle of it. That's the way i see it.

I know i haven’t been all that I could be, and I would entirely blame myself for that.
And not being the ‘hasty type’ isn’t quite a good thing under all circumstances. sad.gif

Have you ever noticed how a fire always seems much brighter when it’s nearing its end ? Well, by the grace of God this fire would burn on till Eternity.
I always was the fiercely loyal kind – well, I am content being just that.

Sajdah
