Stupid rediff calling him a famous singer of 70's and giving example of "neele gagan ke tale" which came in 1967. Mahendra kapoor was already famous in the 1960's with movies like Dhool ka phool (1959), Gumrah (1963), Waqt (1965), Hamraaz (1967), Kismat (1968) and others. This article goes to show that rediff thinks the readers are some highschool kids who know nothing about hindi music of yester years.

Totally agree...the 2nd page has a bigger blunder - Mahendra's contemporary was Talatsaab (Talat Aziz!) - not Talat Mohammad. How can rediff be so naive about readers' knowledge?
