TRIBUTES TO MOHAMMED RAFI BY RAJENDRA "JUBILEE" KUMAR.


                 Rajendra Kumar with Mohammed Rafi  during a Stage-Show.


Tribute to Rafi sahaab by Rajendra Kumar:


Rafi sahaab ke baare meN kyaa baat kareN.... un kee taareef meN kuchh kehna chaaheN toh lafz mushkil se milte haiN.  Ek Tansen theh Shahenshah Akbar ke zamaane meN.  Usee taraah hamaaree film industry meN ek jo Tansen paida huwe, voh theh Rafi Sahaab.  Voh itnaa achchaa gaate theh, aap log achchee taraah jaante haiN.  hazaaroN gaane gaaye unhone.  Har film artiste ke liye gaane gaaye aur Khoobee yeh theeh ke voh jab bhee kisee ke liye gaanaa gaate theh, aisaa lagtaa thaah parde pe, ke Rafi Sahaab naheeN, voh artiste Khud gaa rahaa hai.  


ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE ABOVE:

WHAT TO SAY ABOUT RAFI SAHAAB!  IT'S DIFFICULT TO FIND WORDS FIT FOR HIS PRAISE.  THERE WAS TANSEN DURING THE REIGN OF EMPEROR AKBAR.  LIKEWISE, THE ONE PERSON WHO WAS BORN AS THE TANSEN IN OUR FILM INDUSTRY, HE WAS RAFI SAHAAB! HOW WELL HE USED TO SING, YOU KNOW THAT VERY WELL.  HE SANG THOUSANDS OF SONGS.  HE SANG FOR EVERY FILM ARTISTE, AND HIS EXCELLENCE WAS SUCH THAT WHENEVER HE SANG FOR SOMEONE IT LOOKED ON THE SCREEN AS IF IT WAS NOT RAFI SAHAAB BUT THE ARTISTE HIMSELF WAS RENDERING THE SONG!

EVERY STORMY CURRENT IS MY SHORE,

I'M BOATSWAIN OF THE CURRENTS UNKNOWN,

O yaaroN meraa naam, anjaanaa.
MY NAME, O FRIENDS, IS UNKNOWN.
