“Praising what is lost Makes the remembrance dear”

- William Shakespeare

There are times when you may not praise overtly, but the person or event stays.

Actor Shammi Kapoor is no more. Known for his energetic and completely non-choreographed dances, I somehow preferred his mellower moments when his voice dipped into a whisper. The words of this song could be for him...whenever you listeh to my songs, you will hum along, so how can you forget me...

jab kabhi bhi sunoge geet mere
sang sang tum bhi gungunaoge
haan tum mujhe yun bhulaa na paaoge


  1. Shammi's innumerable, evergreen hit songs play on youngsters'lips even today. It is hard to pick one song over others. But my personal favourite is "Deewana Mujhsa Nahi" from Teesari Manzil. It has the Shammi stamp but is not unduly boisterous and is free of any tomfoolery.

  2. Well, then there is the wonderful 'Raat ke humsafar' and 'Deewana hua baadal' despite the exuberance was utterly charming.

  3. FV,

    It is indeed hard to pick one over others when it comes to Shammi songs. "Deewana Mujhsa Nahi" is just a personal favourite. Remarkably, it is composed by RD and not one of the Shammi regulars - OP and SJ. Rafi is there though.
