Song of the day - Chala Jaata Hoon

This song from the 1972 movie 'Mere Jeevan Saathi' was wonderfully sung by Ramesh at our Osmania University College of Commerce and Business Management in those 1989-1990 years. A superb singer, especially of Kishore Kumar classics, Ramesh hardly needed any provocation to belt out this number. His yodelling was superb and his love for the song and singing came through in the way he sang this number. In the college corridors, in booze parties later at night, on walks and in functions I have heard Ramesh sing this song many times. Probably more times than the original itself. Another of those peppy travel songs, it is bound to lift the spirit anytime. Thanks Ramesh, Kishore Kumar and Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Mere Jeevan Saathi had unforgettable songs- many in the same album- Deewana leke aaya hai, O Mere dil ke chain, Deewana kar ke chhodoge lagta hai yun humko, and Aao na gale lagao na by Asha Bhosle.

Raja, I think 'O mere dil ke chain' belongs to this travel list. Will add it up.
