Let us pledge to support any good music that one may come across ….

While paying tribute to the legendary Shamshad Begum’s heritage, I’d like all the like-minded music fans, who appreciate the golden era music of the Hindi film industry, which produced the playback virtuosi like KL Saigal, Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Talat Mahmood, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and many other giants, including the great music composers such as O. P. Nayyar, Naushad, Shankar-Jaikishan, SD & RD Burman, Kalyanji-Anandji and Laxmikant-Pyarelal, to join hands against the mess being generated by the reality television, the TV idol programs and the boorish item-songs of the present-day Bollywood, and pledge to support any good music they might come across.

The “good music” here may not necessarily be the old era’s Hindi cinema music, but it could belong to any genre – be it the Indian folk, the Indian classical music or any other inspiring work from the rest of the globe. You are invited to speak and share your thoughts on any inspiring piece of music you may have listened to either in the real or the virtual world, i.e. online.

For the time being, though, here is a tribute to the legendary Shamshad Begum, who recently breathed her last at the age of 94, through the following popular songs and YouTube videos of hers. She owned the most feminine, cheerful and yet an equally innocent voice around in those days, and brought out the best of the female protagonists of her day and times.

Kahin Pe Nigahen Kahin Pe Nishana (CID, 1956)
