        Song: O Basanti Pavan Paagal Na Ja Re  Na  Ja,  Roko  Koi
O~~~ ...

        Film:   Jis Desh Me Ganga Behati Hai (1960)
        Music:  Shankar Jaikishan
        Lyrics: Shailendra
        Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
        *ing:   Pran, Raj Kapoor, Padmini

Today's Raghu Karmarkar's death  anniversary.  Well,  usually  on
RMIM  we  don't  talk  about  cameraman,  but  I  will  take this
exception for this talented person from RK Films camp. This  film
was  his  only  directorial venture too. Another notable thing is
this song was recorded much earlier (probably for  Shri  420)  by
Shankar  and  Jaikishan  during  one  of  their  private  musical
sessions with Raj Kapoor and Lata. Apart from soulful singing  of
Lata, orchestral pieces are also brilliant and moving.
