Likhe Jo Khat Tujhe

Lyrics & Chords

In the fast world of SMS, emails and chats, the art of writing a ‘khat’ is long forgotten. Here is one with ‘hazaar rang’ in it. Penned by Neeraj for the 1968 film Kanyadaan and sung by my favorite singer Mohd. Rafi and composed by my favorite music directors Shankar-Jaikishan.

After my last upload (Rang aur Noor),looking at my mixing skills or rather the lack of it, two kind souls – Harry Jassal and Harshan – offered to remix the vocals to enhance it for me. I am not a ‘pro’ member, and since I did not want to lose all the important comments and feedback my friends here have given on it, I decided to use their services for future projects.

This song has been enriched by the audio engineering skills of Harry Jesal, who did it in just 2 hours of me sending him the tracks. Thanks Harry!

Hope you enjoy this happy song, before I go back to my comfort zone of ‘rona-dhona’ songs ;)

Harish said

Kala, Saroj, Babu, RKNair bhai, Kumar, Thinkal sir, thanks for your love and encouragement!

Paras, thanks for the insightful feedback!

Harry Jas, thanks for all the effort. I forgot to mention that you gave great recording tips to me. And that my raw vocal track had many problems (noise, pop, clicks) without which you could have done a much better mixing job!

Harshan, thanks for your persistence on open-throat singing, and great feedback too!

Harish said

thanks to your post Sudha, I am finally drafting this very long overdue post of thanking all well wishers. Actually last week was a bit busy, and on Muziboo, I have been giving priority to listen to and comment on other singers uploads (rightly or wrongly) instead of this post.

i really wanted to upload a song yesterday and also start my musical blog. 31st July is an important day for Rafisaab’s fans! So I recorded a couple of songs on Friday, but they turned out to be so bad, I simply deleted them. I then realised the love and support this community has given me, it helps me to push myself harder, and helps me to give nothing but my best possible output. Thank you Muziboo and friends!

@Shruti, thank you sister for your support. i hope to sing a duet with you one day, so dust off those vocal chords and give it a stretch!

@Adina, that’s a great compliment, and thank you for booking the duet :)

@Rahul bhai, bahut shukriya!

@Sheba, really excited to see your comments!

@Raghu, thank you sir!

@V.S.G. sir, thank you to you too!

@Sojan bhai, thanks for the nice words!

@Faisal, thanks for the great compliments!

@Adwait bhai, aapne to kuch zyaada hi bol diya. Aap ko ek sad song se aisa rulaoonga…

@Rahul (aj) bhai, thanks for the huge compliment. I feel sad songs are as good as the happy ones. It is just that the moods have to match.

@Sudha, thanks for your support! Means a lot to me :)

@Max, thanks!!!

@Alpana, aapka to gazab ka compliment hai, really happy!!

@Nandita, thanks! Not forgetting that it is because of you I am here on Muziboo ;)

@Saqib, shukriya dost!

@Harry Chops, thanks! And you are right Harry Jas has done superb mixing!

@Sreedhar sir, thank you very much for those nice words

Rest assured, you will not get a scribble from me to listen to my songs!

nicely sung dear……. nice voice too:)keep it up……….tc &keep smiling:)


Venky Krish said


This is my first post responding to your song. I am new to Muziboo….was just searching for songs that I like and curious to know and hear how my fellow Rafi fans have sung…. Fantastic…. I loved your singing which appeared quite effortless for a song that is high in pitch and is demanding in terms of speed and precision….Just one helpful feed back I hope…the sustaining of “likhe jo khat tujhe” at the end of each antra , for instance after “jawan jadoo ye diwana” can be perfected . But I can see your love for Rafi shine through in your singing…. keep it up.Cheers.


Harish said

@Wazif bhai, thank you very much!

@shailender, thanks!!

@Kshitij, thanks, and yes, will keep smiling :)

@venky, nice to meet another rafi fan! that’s great compliment esp. coming from someone who has given stage performances! nice learning feedback too!


Harish said

sorry babu missed you :(

@Rameshji, thank you for the loving comments!

@Vaishali, welcome! thank you for the great compliments. yes, i follow rafisaab’s style very closely, and yes i think diction is not my weakness despite being a south indian. but i think my voice is different from rafisaab’s. very different in fact:)
