Today remembering one of the most legendary singers, Mukesh, on his 93rd birthday. Today is his 70th wedding anniversary too. Mukesh and his wife Saral celebrated their thirtieth wedding anniversary on 22 July 1976, four days before his departure for the USA to perform concerts, where he died of a heart attack.
I want to share his most precious private ghazal. This ghazal was introduced to me by Muzaffar bhai and he requested me to cover this last year. Recently when I found the track and recorded it.
The lyricist of this ghazal is Shiv Kumar Saroj. He used to be an announcer at Radio Cylone. He was a poet of standing. Some of his lyrics found place in movies as well. Mukesh listened to some of his poems and offered to sing the same. When a serenade like this one is sung this sweetly by a man to his beloved, would she not consider herself blessed with the ultimate treasure in her life and melt into his arms? What more can one say? …….Beautifully sung by Mukesh!
I hope you will enjoy my cover!
