Humaree Asha ji ....

what can we say about Asha ji ?
So much has been said already.
She still enthralls us with the verve and superb rendition of her classics like ...

" O mere Sona re Sona re ..Sona ..de doongi jaan judaa mat hona re
maine tujhe jarra der mei jaana, hua kasoor khafaa mat hona re ..
O mere Sona re sona re Sonaaaa .........."

&

Ab ke baras bhej Bhaiyya ko Baabul, sawan mei leejo bulay re ..
Lautengeen jab mere bachpan kee Sakhiyaan, deejo sandesha bhijay re

every time I hear the pathos woven into her voice it brings a lump to my throat & tears sail in my eyes ..Sigh !!

&

" Le gayee legayee ...Dil le gayee le gayee ///"
from DTPH brings on a mastee ka mood no matter what it was b4 !

A TRUE artist's caliber has this POWER over us
-- to pull us into their ORB of emotions , both happy or sad .
The quicker any artist can leave his / or / her imprint on our mind & soul and the quicker we react to it determines the GENIUS of that ART & the artist !!

B it a painting by Rembrandt, Piccasso or a poem by Shelly or Wordsworth or a Drama by Shakespear or Kalidasa ....

they all are "alive" even after their Century & time has passed because
of their Genius.

Thus i put our dearest ASHA JI ............Equal among the above.
With her Elder Badi DIDI = Latadi ! ( whom I adore & worship )

yaa definitely she has a great voice in the era of Lada Didi...she makes the way by her own style...i hv read a Interview of O P Nayyer in The Hindu as he explore Asha Ji i was shocked--he said that she is a repititive tape.its very disturbing to find out,that if ones relation doesn't hv the desired result people can say anything.

And even at this age, she continues to experiment and enthrall. But true, my softest corner will be always for Latadidi, but if there is a voice that I like after Latadi's then it has to be Ashaji's only!

Read thru your blog today. Mazaa aaya :)

Ashaji has a unique voice which used to bloom in the compositions of OP Saab.
Yes, after Latadidi its Ashaji.

Harshad bhai,
O.P. & also RD creations gave us so many memorable ASHA ji songs.
Asha ji is a Gusty lady who has lived life as she chose to see it fit & not bothered about the norms fixed as per the old dictates.
in that sense, I'd say, Ashaji is a "True Renainssance woman " &
Latadi , I always say is " Woman of Substance " !!
Have u seen this TV drama ? "If not - Do get & see
The title is : Woman of Substance.
Original Novel writer is : Colleen Mclouggh
regards,
L
