Thirty five years ago today one of the greatest and most loved voices in the world of singing was taken from us. Mohammad Rafi will always be valued as a singer and human being of sublime qualities.
Type ‘remembering Mohammad Rafi’ into Google and you’ll find a large number of recollections of India’s greatest playback singer. Here on this link you’ll find the album pictured below. It is a memorial issue released soon after his passing in 1980. And in the typically earnest and reverential tone employed by ‘Actors with Gravitas’ you will be treated to a spoken biography of his life (in chaste Urdu) interspersed with some of Rafi’s Greatest Hits.
