Songs of 1945 @ SoY :: Duets – Female – Female Duets (+)

Female- Female Duets present an opportunity to listen to many of the voices that we listed to in the female solo songs, with a different perspective of – in terms of the subjects as well as style of singing these types of songs.

We will take up Summing Up of Duets for 1945 in the form of MY Top Duets, in the next episode.



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.

  1. Ashokji,
    From this list my top favourites are, not in order:
    1. Naina bhar aye neer
    2. Aaj hans Hans ke do do baatein ki hain sanam ne hamare
    3. Ratiyan guzaarun kaise haye nindiya na aave
    4. Aahein na bharin shikwe na kiye.

    I hope to find them in your final list.


    1. I have been deliberately avoiding putting the songs previously known to me in MY TOP songs. That is to make me pay for more attention to listen to the songs I have listened first time, and trying to imbibe their nuances.

      Therefore, my formal list will not have my choice on the lines that you have indicated here.

      I f I would have retained the selection pattern that I have been following for the years 1949 and up, my list would have mirrored yours.
