This has been a dream song for me since long. I call it dream because though I have started to cover some popular songs in their original keys but I could never sing this one in its original key of B-flat even in my dreams and gave up until a few days ago when I heard a tribute to Rafi by Lata which she sang two notes below in A-flat. It turned out the immense ease in her singing also took advantage of slow speed of the track. I have noticed many top artists covering songs in lower scales, like Mehdi Hassan singing Hum Pyar Mein Jalne Walon Ko two notes below and like wise Lata Ji singing two notes below Rafi in this song. Upon comparison I felt Lata sang it very carefully and beautifully but what Rafi did in the original is beyond any ones comprehension. The artistry in his singing was like a baby bird flying and showing all his acrobats. I wonder if we can ever listen to such a grand voice ever again in our life time from another artist?

I have used a small starting segment from Lata's cover version, blended it with the transposed karaoke track keeping the original tempo intact. Hope friends like this humble attempt at this giant of a song.
