~Happy Birthday To You Dear Mohini ~

Wishing Our Dear Mohini A Very Happy Birthday!

Purity of hearts,
Believe of trust...
Made Us Together!
                            Soothing presence,
                            Missing an absence...
                            Made Us Together!

Whatever the reason,
It's of pain or rejoice;
We share whether our heart cry or smile,
Feeling of oneness...
Made Us Together!

                           A friend we found in you,
                           You filled us with fulfillment that was due ,
                           Knock at each other heart's door,
                           Integrating life with sweetness depleting the sour...
                           Made Us Together!

Days pass along with our talks,
Opened the diary that was lock from so long,
We are so lucky to have you
Oh Wow!we are top in this luckiest crew

                         It's like a power of three,
                         Power of FAITH : enriches every path with grace;
                         Power of LOVE :cherishes every heart and praise;
                         Power of UNITY : behold us together unbreakable lace;

Binding all into one makes a sweet relation,
That feels like soothing sensation and makes beautiful impression,
Sorrow or joy;no one could cut or destroy the strong roots of our amity,
An oath to never leave alone ever...
Made Us Together!

                        The day has come so special to our dear Mohini,
                        Won so many hearts by her sweet loving hearty symphony,
                        How can we forget to wish you...
                        You're our star;
                         We love you...

It's your day,Dear Mohu
May your all dreams come true!

A tribute to Pancham Da

Today is a death ceremony of Bollywood's legend and a  great  music director R.D. Burman. I would like to share today something about this great musician who showed a bright way to the Bollywood's music industry.

Rahul Dev Burman (R.D Burman) was born in Kolkata. According to some stories, he was nicknamed as Pancham because, as a child ,whenever he cried,it sounded in fifth note (Pa) of the Indian musical scale.The word Pancham means five in Bengali .When he was nine years old,he composed his first song, Aye meri topi palat ke aa. The tune of the song Sar jo tera chakraaye was composed by him as a child.His father loved the tune and included it in the soundtrack of Guru Dutt's Pyaasa and later in 2004, the soundtrack for Pyaasa was given an award for ''The Best Music In Film''.

R D Burman started his career as assistant to his father, Sachin Dev BurmanBurman's first released movie as a music director was Mehmood's Chhote Nawab (1961).R D Burman was India's most popular composer in 1970s (Hindi Cinemas's superstar era), famous for his hippy tunes.
Pancham was very creative person. At times, RD doubled up as a singer too. His percussion included a spoon against a glass (Chura liya hai from Yaadon Ki Baaraat").He recorded the light version of Hume tumse pyar kitna in the voice of playback singer Kishore Kumar.He recorded a variety of songs rendered by Kishore Kumar notably the classical song Mere naina sawan bhado, the sad song Chingari koi bhadake, the philosophical song Aanewala pal, the piano song Pyar diwana hota hai, the romantic song O mere dil ke chain, the hummable wonder Raat kali, the separation song Zindagi ke safar me, the rainy song Rimjhim gire saawan,the cabaret Piya tu ab toh aaja from Caravan (1971), the ultimate hippie anthem Dum Maro Dumfrom Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1972) or the classical Raina beeti jaaye.And many more hit songs.

He suffered from a heart attack in 1988 and underwent heart surgery. During this period, he composed many tunes, which were never released. In 1994, there were four more releases, of which 1942: A Love Story (released after his death) has an unforgettable score. The film won him the third and last of his Filmfare Awards. In his short life span of 54 years he proved himself to be the best Indian musician of all the time!

Since my little age till now I love to listen him. Even his music is the only reason I like old hindi songs rather than of present time. Whenever me and my dad have time together ,we use to listen those songs composed by him and try to take out the same tune through our mouth,patting fingers and legs.Wow! I enjoy those moments a lot!. With his wondering talent and hard working he have secured a special place in millions of hearts including mine  Facebook Happy Smiley Face .Today,the whole day after humming his tunes I thought to write a poem, a tribute to my so favorite Pancham Da.  So Here it is! 

Music of yours in my heart I borrow
I glimpse with a hearty grin on those ever ranging sorrows.

Tuning your melody again and again
But my everlasting madness to listen them fails to make me feel mundane 

Music is a reflection of feelings from the heart so pure
With your soft touching compositions my annihilate heart get cure

Whenever my heart cry or smile
I play your songs and close my eyes

Your music accompanies me to my beautiful dreamland
Of imaginations and wonders

The day become so dull and bore
Until the sweetness of your music echo in my ears and tune into my heart's core

With your music;
I learnt the beauty of love,
The pain of lost,
Happiness in little things
And a true madness for own-self's passion

Your five musical notes Pancham Da
I choose  as a melody of my life and heart's song
Because I could not play any other music as yours too long
You'll be always in my heart 

One of my favorite is this one~
