  1. Fantastic review of one of the great but not very popular songs of Rafi Sahab. Has been my favourite for too long. Thanks for this excellent translation.

  2. You're most welcome Murty Sahaab! I'm glad you loved the translation which, I must admit, wasn't easy. I, too, love the song especially because Rafi Sahaab has subtly used Arabic style of rendition.
