Rafi Saab
by Ahamed Kutty on Dec 26, 2015 06:01 PM

When Rafi Saab had been conferred the "Padmashree"
he told to the press "let all get the Padmashree".

As far as Kerala is concerned they are treating him as their own singer.He even conducted live programmes in small towns other than big cities.In
Calicut alone there are at least four Fan Clubs of
him.It is a fashion that for marriage parties and
other get together there used to be "Rafi Nights".
One fan in Alleppy build a concrete bus shelter and
named after him.Another fan in Calicut became radio repairer only to hear the voice of Rafi Saab through
Vividh Bharathi and Radio Cylon which was available
those days.These are all happening without singing in that state language.The fan who built the concrete bus shelter is a porter and he even conducting Rafi Nights on every 31st July
with his hard earned money and borrowing
from others.There is a Malayalam Calendar "Mathrubhumi Calendar" and in that 31st July as the
death anniversary of "Mohamed Rafi".Interestingly
even veteran Malayalam actors like Sathyan,Prem nazir,Jayan etc.who passed away did not find their
death anniversaries.

Dont compare artists
by sanjay sharma on Dec 25, 2015 09:24 AM

We should never compare two artists. The point here is if the voice is touching our inner cord.M Rafi,Kishore,Mukesh,Yesudas, Lata,Asha and lot others are masters and they have their own class. Its unfair to compare them with each others. Rafi had a great voice and heart. We love him for what he have given us to cherish.

Please don't compare anyone with Rafi Saab. Yesudas is definitely as great singer, but even he considers Mohd.Rafi his guru.
