The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Female Solo Songs – Khursheed, Noor Jehan, Kanan Devi

This is the last possible year when we can have Hindi (Bollywood) solos songs of these three classic vintage era female singer icons in a year, simply because Noor Jehan was to then migrate to Pakistan. Also, it was this year that Lata Mangeshkar has debuted as a playback singers for Hindi films. Lata went on to totally dominate the female playback singing scene by the turn of the decade, and has almost single-handedly scripted the history of Hindi film music. When all these characters have now been consigned to ‘have been’s, we are left with only question to continue to ponder over: What would have been the character of Hindi film songs had Noor Jehan not migrated to Pakistan?

At the cost of making the post a little linger, we have covered solo songs of these singers in one post, thereby according them a very special status.

In the next episode we shall take up Solo Songs of Other Female Singers and Lata Mangeshkar

By ASHOK M VAISHNAV

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging!
One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems.
So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation.
At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships.
I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator.
And yet,
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
