Suresh Wadekar: A Perfect Singer

Suresh Wadekar is one my favourite singers.  He is very talented and he is really someone who can sing a classical song with great perfection.  I can quote many songs, which bear testimony to his exceptional singing talent. Aur Is Dil Me Kya Rakha Hai (Imandar),  Meri Kismat Me Tu Nahi Shayad( Prem Rog) and Khamosh Sa Afsana (Libaas) are some of the great numbers rendered by him.

At present, I am presenting a song from movie Utsav based on two Sanskrit plays: Charudatta by Bhāsa and Mrichakatika by Śhudraka. The best thing about this song is that it produces great soothing effect, creates a perfect scenario that prevails when the sun goes down. 

Another sterling feature is that it uses pure tatsam words, which is a rarity. Hats off to Laxmikant Pyarelal and Vasant Dev for producing such gems.  Some music lovers are of the opinion that this song “ “Saanjh Dhale Gagan Tale” is based on Raga “Bibhas”.

सांझ ढले गगन तले हम कितने एकाकी 
छोड़ चले नयनों को किरणों के पाखी 
पाती की जाली से झांक रही थीं कलियां 
गंध भरी गुनगुन में मगन हुई थीं कलियां 
इतने में तिमिर धंसा सपनीले नयनों में 
कलियों के आंसू का कोई नहीं साथी 
छोड़ चले नयनों को किरणों के पाखी 
सांझ ढले।। 

जुगनू का पट ओढ़े आयेगी रात अभी 
निशिगंधा के सुर में कह देगी बात सभी 
कांपता है मन जैसे डाली अंबुआ की 
छोड़ चले नयनों को किरणों के पाखी 
सांझ ढले।
