Film: Akhiyon ke jharokhon se (1978)
Music: Ravindra Jain
Lyrics: Ravindra Jain
This soothing, semi-classical and beautiful timeless classic has the ‘other’ classically-trained Lata – Hemlata – rendering it in her unique but effective voice and style. Amongst the other yesteryear tunesmiths, there was a visually impaired but talented gentleman called Ravindra Jain who made his presence felt with some good classical-based albums and hummable melodies like this one primarily comprising his own lyrics. This number is arguably one of his best pieces of work. Go listen and it will keep haunting you!
This number topped the Binaca Geetmala charts in the year 1978. Ravindra Jain was primarily active in the 70s and the early 80s with some his notable albums being Saudagar (1973), Chor Machaye Shor (1974), Chitchor (1976), Ram Teri Ganga Maili (1985) and Henna (1991) among others. He was a mentor to many singers like KJ Yesudas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K._J._Yesudas) and Hemlata (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemlata) and got them to sing many of his good numbers
