Mohd Rafi’s Death Anniversary – Afternoon

Indian regional languages distributionIndian regional languages distribution

The afternoon on Twitter as people poured in memory after memory. I am going to have to let go of the evening and after that for sheer lack of time. TOI said when he died, that if there were 101 ways to express love, Rafi knew them all. This is a small measure of how deeply he touches lives. 31 years after his death, the tweets remembering him were a tidal wave.

I have kept very few of the song tweets, because in spite of creating two posts and omitting many tweets, both the posts are very, very long.
Magician of voice,great singer MD RAFI,u r unfogetable .wth ur voice u will rule forever .

Why are there so many Rafi posts all of a sudden? Yeah, he was (is, in some sense) fabulous. But overdose, yeah?

One of the best songs by Mohd Rafi is from Baiju Baawra, “Man tarpat Hari darshan ko aaj.” Very underrated and never on air on FM.
