The Great Emperor of Indian Music Industry - Kishor Kumar

  Tributes to Kishor Kumar by Anurag Varshney

Kishore kumar the great legend of Indian music industry will always remain unparalleled. His voice always echoes in my ears. Since childhood I had been hearing his songs.
I still remember when I used to return on weekends from Delhi to my native town Aligarh, I often used to stand at the gate of train and keeping myself little tilted out.
You would think what I used to do then. Yes little funny thing I used to do, I used to sing Kishor Kumar's songs loudly outside in the fast blowing air. I was not a good singer but I always wanted to sing loudly and I found that place as a best place to do so. I was the singer and only I was the audience.

My favourite song is 'Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas Tum Rahti Ho......' from Blackmail 1973
