Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhulegi

Lyrics & Chords

A couple of days back I got a call (on gmail) from a Muziboo friend. He was genuinely concerned about my lack of uploads here. In his excitement, he started speaking to me in Malayalam, forgetting that i don’t understand that language. He almost chided me like an elder brother, and also extended his full support to ensure that i come back on track. He also gave me a lot of tips to solve the issues i was facing.

Ladies and gentleman, i dedicate this song to this gem of a person. You all must have guessed who this selfless person is – Thinkal Govind Kumar sir.

Presenting Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhulegi Ye Barsaat Ki Raat.

Film: Barsaat Ki Raat
Music: Roshan
Lyrics: Sahir
Singer: Mohd. Rafi

I know I missed using a pop filter here, esp. with words like Bhar, Bhulegi, Phool, etc. Also currently learning the tricks of the mixing trade. Could have been mixed by a master, but then I would never learn, so did it myself. Would appreciate a feedback on the mixing too :)

My Dear Harish,
Your kind, loving words about my humble self in the introduction brought tears into my eyes & humbled me much more !
I thank The Almighty & your good self too for the love & honour you have bestowed on me, which is much more than what I can ask for or expect, since I sincerely consider myself as just a nobody compared to all the great artists here like your good self !
Your choice of this song by the One & Only One Rafisaab was quite nice & befitting which you have rendered in your great silky voice in your versatile style with lots of feel !
I know that your good self who is always craving for perfection would be not fully satisfied which is the case with every sincere & good artists !
But I can very well tell that this rendition by you is quite perfect & mind-blowing !
Your mixing is very professional too !
LOVED this to the core & also added this to my FAVOURITES !
Standing ovation to you, my dear younger brother ! Your re-entry has been with quite a bang !
Finally, I most thankfully accept your heartfelt words & this dedication with all humbleness !
GOD Bless !
Loving Best Wishes,
Thinkal Govind Kumar.

Dj Wazif said

Harish bhai… listening to you quite a while now…. don’t believe your mixing wasn’t good rather good than many…. yes the pops were there but not bad…. you sang it with beautiful feel and expressions but I guess higher notes can still be stretched like on “toofan” and “dekhi na suni” etc. One word I like to mention is “Naghme” with an urdu ghayn not just “Nagme” and I believe you have capacity to deliver it since you delivered “surkh” correctly. Anyhow…. very nice performance…. keep sharing like that.

Radhakrishnan Nair said

Harish bhai,
Nice expressive singing.Enjoyed it very much. Goes to my fav.
Keep it up!



Sudha Kumar (back to listen to all of you..) said

Very nice to have you back here, Harish. Lovely dedication to Govindji, and so expressive. Crystal clear diction – continue to do the mixing yourself!
As the song progressed, you were getting more and more effortless with your harkats.
Enjoyed this!

Rinimathew said

beautiful song and beautifully rendered.
listening to this song after long time . nice singing sir
music heals….so enjoy it.


Harish said

@Saroj, thanks for the lovely feedback!

@Babu, thanks for the great compliments. And, yes I hope to upload more in future!

@Thinkal sir, what do I say to you? Suffice to say that if you had not made that call, this upload would not have happened. As you said, I am not entirely happy with my efforts. But the consolation for me was that this was sung in one go (except the initial alaap). No cut-paste job. Though I took 8-9 attempts spread over 2-3 days. Thanking for your love again!

@Kala. Thank you for the beautiful feedback. And yes, we should be thankful for Prateek and Nithya for this great music community

@Wazif bhai, great feedback! Very important learning for me, esp as. I take pride in getting the urdu pronunciation right :)

@Harry, thanks for the nice words. And thanks for the tips in making a great mix too. But for you, I would not have known what is a ‘pop’ filter :)

@Parasmani, thanks! BKR did not get even a nomination for the FF award. Even though Dil Apna Preet Parayi won it, Naushad was quite mad (and very rightly so) that Mughal-e-Azam deserved it!

@Shani bhai, thank you for you kind words!

@RK bhai, that’s encouraging from you. Thanks and looking forward to more uploads from you too!

@Sudha, thanks for the ‘hosla afsai’. I am not sure how much credit to take for the mix, as the track itself was good.

@Rini, welcome and thanks! We muzibooans are also eager to listen to you lovely voice, so pls upload your favorite song quickly!

Friends, if you wish to have this track, here it is (http://ifile.it/xy94itv). An otherwise excellent track marred by an instrument that acts as a guide.

Here are some of my interpretations …of originals I love


Harish said

@Shailu bhai, thanks for the great comments!

@Srini, main to ‘sahab ban gaya? bro, it is not worth singing well if it means friends start calling me ’sahab’ :) thank you very much, and your feedback means a lot to me as you know this song inside out!

@Ramesh bhai, despite being ‘away’ and globe-trotting as always, i am glad you found the time not only to listen, but also to leave a few lines of wonderful comments, thanks!

@Harshan, thanks for your ‘bol anmol’. if you think you can’t attempt a song like this, you are seriously underestimating yourself. try it!

Nice rendition, and when you have someone like Thinkal Sir encouraging you , you can only get better ……

You have a beautiful voice Harish. this song is a tough one and you have done a great job. However I feel notes/ harqats could be better at few places.

Ye Dil maange more….ek fast number ho jaye Harish Bhai….

Re visited :)

just noticed Paras comment,
i have read this list in a blog ,may be it could be wrong
On that year for filmfare award following were the top 10 contenders
1 Bambai Ka Babu (SDB)
2 Barsaat Ki Raat (Roshan)
3 Chaudahvin Ka Chand (Ravi)
4 Dil Apna aur Preet Parai (SJ)
5 Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai (SJ)
6 Kala Bazaar (SDB)
7 Kohinoor (Naushad)
8 Mughal-E-Azam (Naushad)
9 Parakh (Salil Choudhury)
10 Saaranga (Sardar Mallik)
Regardless… 1960 was one heck of a year for music!!


Harish said

@chandrasekharan, thanks sir for listening and feedback!

@Manupadi, thank you!

@Latha, thanks for the revisit ;)
Not sure whether there ever were 10 nominees. I think only DAPP, M-e-A and CKC were nominated. Though SJ are my fav, I’d given it to BKR or M-e-A. Naushad was livid when DAPP won it.
