I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to sing with some great singers on YL. Chandran Ji is one of those singers who I have always admired and respected. So, when he asked me to sing a duet with him and introduced me to this rare gem, I was elated! Not only did I love this song, but when I looked up for more songs from the same film, I liked them all. Whenever S.D. Burman and Shailendra Ji teamed up, they created magic together. Though one song from this film, "Pucho na kaise maine rain beetaaye" is actually a Nazrul Geeti, "Aruno kanti ke go jogi bhikhari". I hope Kazi Nazrul Islam was credited in the titles of the movie.
Thank you Chandran Ji, for introducing me to this song, for singing with me, giving me tips on diction, and mixing the song so well. Everytime I sing a duet, I get to know my YL family members more closely. And that's an added bonus on top of enjoying beautiful music.
