Fair tresses man's imperial race insnare, And beauty draws us with a single hair.

  2. Yes, V.Manohar ji, this is indeed a very popular song of Rafi Sahaab for the then Superstar, Rajesh Khanna. Do Raaste was a great hit which celebrated Golden Jubilee in Mumbai at the Royal Opera House. Incidentally, just a stone-throw away, there is the Roxy Cinema which saw Aradhna celebrating Golden Jubilee too the same year.
