My New Year Gift

Dear readers, I wish you a very, very happy New Year. I know I'm late in wishing you, but that does not take away from the sincerity of my wishes. You mean the world to me -- without you, I am nothing.

Here's a small gift for you -- a song from Biwi O Biwi which is very close to my heart. On the screen, it is sung by Randhir Kapoor who, in spite of his limitations as an actor, managed to bag some of the best songs ever made in Bollywood. Behind the screen, it was created by Kishore Kumar and R.D. Burman; and both of them were at the peak of their careers at the time.

Another thing: this is the voice of Kishore that I am a fan of -- from the pit of the heart, loud and clear. And the lyrics aren't bad either. In fact, they are good: they give you so much food for thought. Please listen to it, and enjoy.

P.S. Just as I was writing the post, I realised today is R.D. Burman's death anniversary. So the post is a tribute to him as well.

Actually, when I rememebered that it was ws R.D's anniversary,my first thought was that you must've surely written something as a tribute- I was not wrong...
Wish You a very Happy New Year...

Happy New Year to you too.
Can you tell me some great Kishore Kumar and RD audio CDs for starters ? Would love to possess them and bask in the bliss of their music.
