Songs of Life : Tribute to RD

Last week we celebrated RDs birth anniversary. Due to some issues, had to remain at home that day. Luckily one FM channel was playing RD songs throughout the day. Lots have been said about genius of RD Burban and there are folklores amongst music lovers about his personality. But i have a different angle to pay tribute to RD. His songs make you reflect upon various situations about life and thus they appeal. Though some might technically and correctly credit major part of that to lyricists but i feel the haunting music makes that reflection. Here is my case.

Most of us have some complaints about life thus the most favourite song of mine is applicable universally: ‘Tuzse Naaraz Nahin Zindagi Hairan Hoon Main’. Note the difference between Naaraz (being pissed off) and being Hairan (bemused). It’s subtle and also note on stress in the music of “Main”.

Indian culture calls this day as Gurupournima...
