In the last episode we had listened to solo songs of G M Durrani and Ashok Kumar as part of our ongoing micro view of Male Solo Songs of 1946.

We will take up solo songs of Surendra and ‘other’ vintage era related male singers in the present episode.

Solo Songs of Surendra

Surendra did continue well into 50s but there would full agreement that he was quintessential vintage era singer.

Zamane Se Nirale Hai Pyar Karanewale – Panihari – Ali Hussain

I have not been able to locate YT link for

O Nain Baware, Jinko Apana Geet Banaye – Panihari – Ali Hussain

Solo Songs of Other Vintage Era Male Singers

The only  criterion to categorize a male singer here is that we hardly have a song or two in the year, for which the soft link is available, too.

Zindagi Zindagi Zindagi Koi Supana Nahi Zindagi – Dr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani – Khan Masatana (?) – Vasant Desai – Diwan Sharar

Jag Ki Sewa Kar Le Bande – Hamjoli – Mehboob – Hafeez Khan – Anjum Pilibhiti

Upar Hai Badariya Kari, Maujo Main Nav Hamari – Milan – Shankar Dasgupta – Anil Biswas – P L Santoshi

In the next episode, we will take up solo songs of K L Saigal for micro-view of male solo songs of 1946.


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.
