  1. Hello, I am looking for a song. I don't know the movie or the title of the song. The only thing I can remember about the song is that it was by a female and it had a theme about her life being like a "Kati Patang". I think its from the late 60's or early 70's. It is not from the movie "Kati Patang". I have searched and can't find the song. If any one can help me that would be great. Thanks Sami

    1. Hi, I saw this only now, I'm sorry. My first instinct when you mentioned the theme of the song was of course Meri zindagi hai kya ek kati patang hai from Kati Patang but that is a Kishore solo. Off-hand I cannot remember a song such as the one you mention, but if I do, I will post it here...

    2. The same song was sung by Lata too as a solo in the same movie.

    3. Hi Saee,

      I know that; Meri zindagi hai kya ek kati patang hai had a Lata version as well, but the OP says it is not from Kati Patang. So then, which film can it be? And which song is it?

    4. I came across Piya main hoon patang tu dor from Ragini (1958). Does not mention kati patang, just patang.

    5. But apparently, the poster is looking for a song that says she's a kati patang which argues that the song is a sad one. (I mean, I can't imagine anyone singing about kati patangs in a romantic duet, no?)

  3. Wow. Your blog is an encyclopedia for followers of old hindi songs of 50s and 60s. I am afraid that I am going to get lost in all those wonderful posts of yours.

    1. Thank you so much for the appreciation, Krishnan. I grew up with these songs, courtesy my father, and I can think of nothing better than to share my love for them with others. That people like you read my posts, and appreciate them (and comment!) is the icing on the cake.

      Thank you so much.

  6. Hi Anu
    Following this blog from not so long, but now I am addicted to it.The segment I like most is the "My favourites".
    I would like you to make your list of year wise top 10 favourite songs ie, your favourite songs of year 1950, 1951 and so on. You can further divide into best male solos, best female solos best duets like that.
    Just a sincere suggestion, decision is yours.

    1. Thank you, Atif. I'm so glad you like the segment. I take a lot of effort to see that they are representative of the themes I choose. As for your suggestion that I make a '10 favourite songs of each year' list, I humbly suggest that it would be an almost impossible task, especially in the golden years. I'll keep it in mind, however, and see if it is feasible.

  8. Hi, An old Hindi song, in female voice, with lyrics like "Phirte rahinge dilwale teri galion mein" in or around the beginning; and something like "yeh to jawani ka nasha hai, zaroor hai" somewhere in the middle is haunting me since many years. No search combination could help me. The song is probably in Bhairavi. Any idea from anybody?

    1. Not sure, really. Especially if the songs come in the middle of a song. Sorry. :(

  9. Hi, I too am searching for a song who lyrics are "Ho gaya barbaad mohabbat jatane me, Ji nahi lagta ab zamane me". I dont know who the singer is but I used to listen to this song in my childhood on Vividh Bharathi way back in 1970s. If any knowledgeable Music lover know about this song please take time to inform me. Thanks and regards

    1. Haven't heard the song or of the singer before, Eshika. Thank you for the link. She sings well, but oh, the electronic music was so intrusive. :(
