DADA SAHEB PHALKE ON MANNA DEY: RAHE JAIGI NISHANIYA
Description: "Upar Gagan Vishal" and beneath lies "Aye mere pyare batan", on which sparkles Manna Dey in his ninety, who must be brooding "Puchho na kaise maine raen bitai",because this recognition ought to have been effected earlier--"zindagi kaisi hai paheli hai". Any how, all the music lovers are exalted at this news that this outstanding singer, whose conviction is "sur ke bina jeevan suna", and believes in " yaari hai iman mera yaar meri zindagi" must be delighted in "ye dosti".
Hail to thee Manna da ! "Chham chham baje"our souls, and we vow to immortalize you with your"kasme vade pyar bafa..".
