5th September 1997 will go in history books, as the world lost  a
caring  and loving Mother -- Mother Teresa -- a messenger of God.
Today's ATMJH is dedicated to her. I have selected a  song,  that
will  remind anyone of his/her mother, without fail, at any time;
thinking it appropriate to remember this Mother to whole mankind:

        Song: Aaja Ri Aa, Nindiyaa Tu Aa
                Zilmil Sitaron Se Utar, Sapne Sajaa ....

        Film:   Do Bigha Zameen (1953)
        Music:  Salil Chowhury
        Lyrics: Shailendra
        Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
        *ing:   Balraj Sahani, ?

This one is acclaimed as one the  best  'lori'  in  films  (after
Saigal's  'Soja  Rajkumari'  and Ramchandra Chitalkar's 'Dhire Se
Aaja Ri'). I must admit that the feelings  this  Shailendra  poem
evokes  is unparallel and can't be described in any words. A very
sweet and divine touch given by Lataji, makes it  heavenly  song.
One  should  also  notice, that Salilda -- although himself being
fond of western music and orchestra -- employs very  light-gentle
orchestra.  Very  thought  -ful  thing  indeed.  Flute pieces are

It's just a coincident  that  I  chose  this  song,  for  today's
Salilda's anniversary too!
