In this article I am giving the details of a unique रागमालिका , composed by veteran music director मदन  मोहन  in the film दिल  की  राहें  (1973).The lyrics were written by नखश  लायलपुरी  and singer was मन्ना  डे .The situation shows the chain of vocal singing programmes presented by the hero of the film :राकेश पाण्डेय   on his radio broadcast.
 First song was:
 “मस्त  मयूरा  नाचे ,
   आयी  बसंती  ऋतु रसवंती ,
   स्वप्न हुए सब सांचे,
   मस्त मयूरा नाचे..||”
   framed in early morning melody,राग  :तोड़ी 
 The next song 
 “हरि  गुन  गा  ले  व्याकुल  मनवा|
   हरि का नाम सदा सुखदाई ,
   हरि गुन  गा ले ....” 
  was composed in राग : अहीर -भैरव .
 Third song was composed in the morning melody, राग : असावरी ,.The lyrics were
 "भोर  आयी  मधुमासी ,
   पंछी  चहके वन वन में ,
   गुन गुन पवन गाती |
   भोर आयी मधुमासी .....”.
 The concluding number of this रागमालिका was:
 “नैना  ढूंढें  तोहे  श्याम रे ,
   अब और नहीं कछु काम रे ,
   हाय राम ,
   नैना ढूंढे तोहे श्याम रे ….” 
  a popular composition framed in evening राग  :काफी 
 All these songs were superbly sung by मन्ना  डे  as a perfectionist Classical Vocalist.
