Nostalgia-III

Music director duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal attained instant popularity with the film 'Dosti' in the early 1960s. The film was about two boys - one a lame and another blind. The lame played harmonica while the blind sang. The music touched the soul of millions who could not stop their tears.

"As a child, I had a friend who sang while I played harmonica. Though neither of us had any physical disability, people in Pune referred to us as 'Here go the langda and andha'. Dosti had become our identity," says Madan Kumar, the mouth organ maestro recalling his childhood days.

Here is the song from the film 'Dosti', which Madan Kumar played before a select gathering of members of the Harmonica Club of Gujarat in Ahmedabad.

Very very soothing rendition by Madan kumar sahab including the SAQI of the song. After seing it I got the inspiration. I have taken the lyrics from youtube & practised it. Will be uploading it in a day or two in youtube.
