ON THE 90TH BIRTHDAY OF THE KING OF SILKEN VOICE SHRI TALAT MAHMOOD

On this 90th Birthday of  the great singer of Hindi silver screen Shri Talat Mahmood. I am again reminded of  numerous soul stirring melodious songs rendered by him.The complete lyrics of all the film and non -film songs sung by him are collected in the book form named as 'TALAT GEET KOSH' complied by Dr. Rakesh Pratap Singh from Kanpur ( U.P.). 
                                                 
Myself with TALAT Mahmood at his residence.

Myself at the release function of Talat Geet Kosh in 1992 at Talat Mahmood's residence,
How can I forget those moments when we were at his residence in Bandra,Mumbai.Veteran music director of Hindi films Shri Naushad Ali was the chief guest of this function.Also journalist Raju Bharatan  from Times Of India and Shri Gopal Sharma of Radio Shrilanka were special invited guests.The completion of this book was also the dream of Talat Ji, which was completed and was in his hands.I marked a solace and happiness in his expressions on that evening of 26th August,1992.
