Gaata Rahe Mera Dil

An obligatory introduction for that heading can take a back seat , I guess…

Day #3

The moment of the day was sponsored by Google…

Today morning after booting my system in office, I was slowly settling into the usual routine…Google is high up there among the favourite links, and out of habit I made a visit to the site…and it gave me goosebumps with the below doodle…

Kishore Da…he would have been 85 today…thanks to Google for the pleasant smile…and for bringing back an assortment of memories…and the first encounter with his voice is still fresh, like it happened yesterday…

It goes a long way back…to my primary school days when we were tenants in a housing colony nearby our current residence…it was the video of the song caught my eye initially – Amitabh Bachchan dancing with an array of decorative lights on his body…made more vivid by Dad’s commentary…and the scene is complete with the distinctive motifs of a bygone era – BPL colour television, the Doordarshan logo by the corner and the Sunday special Rangoli… ‘Saara Zamanaa’ still resonates…though there are innumerable melodies and intriguing eccentricities associated with the legend, this song will always remain one of my favourites…
