I think I am Talat's greatest fan. Talat was my friend in 1952. I was a Police Sub-Inspector working at Bandra Police Station. Talat used to come to the PS once a week to meet Inspector Adkar. Talat had bought his first car and we used to take a ride in the car. Possibly, it was a Morris. Although, I lost touch with him, he was always with me because I listen to his velvet voice every day of my life. I am his greatest fan ever. Khalid Saheb, I want to meet you and hold you in my arms. Because, Talat also held you in his arms as a baby!

"Talat" - The Urdu name, I really don’t know the meaning, but the name itself touches my heart so deeply. Right from my childhood I am listening Talat. His velvety voice is the only voice and will remain forever the only voice on earth. In true sense, really no one can and will never imitate his voice and the way of singing. Legacy of many other singers is carried ahead by their imitators, but Talat is only one and will remain only one forever.  

His entire silent, romantic, melodious and meaningful songs literally soothe my heart. Whenever I feel low and depressed, I just play Talat songs. When I start playing Talat, I always get spellbound, and I go deeper and deeper in to those spells of therapy, yes, therapy - it’s literally a therapy to sooth your heart. I forget all the worries and tensions, and get relaxed instantly by getting very caring, loving and soothing touch of his voice in the form of unbeatable tablets of his melodies. 

There are/were many other singers in the industry, I love them, respect them and their songs, no doubt, but whenever I listen Talat, then I don’t like to hear any other singer, ones I hear Talat, I feel to keep continue listening Talat, Talat and only Talat without any interruption.  

Other singers also have very great fan following may be in terms of numbers and fan clubs, but for Talat, fans are just not fans, but one step ahead, they always loved him like - "Wo mera apna koi hai". When Talat sings - I feel that purest of the purest heart is singing, and curing souls. 

His voice - a nature’s miracle or Gods gift to him, one cannot express exactly in words what is it? Besides this, he sung all of his songs very easily and effortlessly. But no one can even think of going near to his singing and his songs, that shows his practice, knowledge and immense love and dedication for singing. Besides all of his singing and voice qualities, he looks very descent, calm and sober, elegant. His simplicity made him outshine.  

I feel proud to have such a great real gem in my life. He is god’s gift to all of us. Talat songs and Talat will be alive in our heart forever.

 Salute to him from the core of my heart with deep respect. I belong to youngsters, and I am sure, others also share the same kind of feelings like me.

Ever since I heard Talatji's song "Chal Diya Karvaan, Loont Gaye Hum Yaha" (in the year 1967-68) when I was in my College years, I have been a fan of Talat Mahmood. That time, I did not understand the kind of magic he had in his throat. I started collecting lyrics of all his songs and try to sing them. After I moved to USA in 1981, I had a chance to see him sing live, but unfortunately, I was far away from Houston, Texas where his concert was to be held, and I could not make it. I still regret today. I have lot of collection of his old, new and non-filmi songs/Gazals today and I still enjoy them over any other singer of any generation.I accidently found this site today, and I am so glad to see and learn more about his life today. Great job Khalidbhai. Please keep it up. Thanks. PRAKASH MAJMUAR

Talat is truly a SHAHENSHAH OF GHAZALS ! That velvet feel in his voice and emotions straight from the heart is a combination few can beat or touch. The Gods above must be so happy hearing the SHAHENSHAH sing for them everyday ! It is us mortals who have lost the man with the golden voice forever.........

Talat saab has that vocal sophistication that no one else in Hindi Film Cinema ever has. Coupled with it he has the rare sonorousness and vocal beauty that makes him unique, only one of a kind. It is disheartening that such a huge talent got such limited success in the '70s, '80s and the '90s. It is a sad state of affairs that the worlds best ghazal singer remained less heard than ordinary talents like Jagjit Singh, Pankaj Udhas and Anup Jalota during the ghazal wave. Even the great Mehdi Hassan, who owes much of his singing skills to Talat does not come close in terms of sonority and effortless singing.

As a young girl, i recall being totally enchanted by Talat sahib's rendition of "jalte hai jiske liye" while watching the movie "sujatha"-being in my pre-teens, i could not appreciate the pathos expressed in the song but the voice, oh the voice was so beautiful that i fell in love with it! The song kept going round in my head for days after and then as with everything else, faded out of my memory. Now, on the wrong side of forty, i was re-introduced to Talat sahib's music by a wonderful friend from the past and i am now an addict to Talat sahib's songs...his voice has the ablity to transport me to a wonderful time when life was gentle and love was considerate...i'm only sad that i missed listening to Talat sahib all these years in between...but i shall try to make up for that loss..Talat sahib's songs are my constant companions now..i do envy my friend who was able to see Talat sahib on his trip to tellicherry all those years ago...Thanks to you, i am able to learn about your legendary Father..Guess he must be enchanting those, who like him, have left this plane for a higher existence....look down on us and see our enchantment in your songs dear sahib!!

Dear Khalid Bhai, What a wonderful site you have prepared on you great father Talat Saab who had the most divine voice! Now I am 55. I had remained in the audience when Talat Saab had come to Cochin (Mattancherry HEHMMH School).At first he started with "Seene me sulagthe hai armaan". Then it started raining. Talat Saab immediately sang Aaha Rhimjhim ke ye paare pyaare".The entire audience remained in their seats though it rained well. The concert went with TalatSaab's magical touches. I ran in the crowd and touched his hand. He felt Godsent He came twice thereafter. In seventeens. Second time I went and spoke. How great and humble he was.He stood to shook my hand. Third time I made an interview. I had written articles in Malayalam for three ocassion, including the one I had done after his sad demise. In Cochin, there is one Hussan Shah, who is in his 60s now.He had a replica of Talat saab's voice. Unfortunately now he is sick. The people of Cochin found solace in hearing him for Talat Saab's voice.I have now words how to comment on this great artist on the earth who is still with us and will be there for centuries with his heavenly voice. Khalid Bhai, every night I use to hear Talat Saab for a good sleep. With high regards, M.Iqbal, 1/1987, Kazi House, Fernandez Garden, Cochin-682 001 (Kerala)

Being a crazy fan I check this site regularly. On 2nd November,2005 I wrote a message to you. Today I found in 'Listen to Audio' page that you have uploaded the songs in other regional languages alongwith Bengali songs. But you did not upload two songs in older version. One is "Duti paakhi duti teere" and the other is "Ghumero chhaya chandero chokhe". It is really painful to me. Because I think that most of the fans already heard the newer version. But the older version is very very rare. At least to me. I have been searching those songs for a long days. I hoped that you will quench my thirst. But I am disappointed. Also I want to hear the bengali film songs sung by the legend singer (Obviously the original soundtrack). I shall be very grateful to you if you upload this songs immediately. Thanks and regards Subir Biswas

Dear Mr Mahmood, It is gratifying to note your effort to keep the memory of your legendary father alive. A mere cursory hearing of the songs posted by you is sufficient to make one realize how justified the emotions expressed by Kishore Kumar were when, once, after hearing your father sing at Anil Biswas's house, he contemplated giving up singing altogether, reasoning that he had no chance of making a career, so long as such a perenially romantic voice was around!

Dear Khalid Saheb, This link was sent to me by my brother who stumbled on it a year ago. I did take a look at the website as soon as it was sent to me but did not realize that the songs were downloadable. May be I missed a lot of songs that were uploaded on your website earlier. Hopefully you will upload them once again in the future. I am a great fan of your late father. He was introduced to me by my dad, who is a diehard fan of  Talat Saheb. It is hard to find singers of such a caliber these days. It is very heartening to know that you are taking such great efforts to keep his legacy alive and give his fans an oppportunity to enrich their collection of  Talat Saheb's indelible gems. Keep up the good work and thanks a million!

Dear Khalid Bhai ASAK! I have been listening filmi songs of Talat saheb right from child hood. Indian film industry is heavily indebted to his contribution is no denying fact. It is now our responsibility to preserve this heritage and introduce it to the new generation. I suggest to use digital technology to the fullest extent like it has been used for "Mughal-e-Azam" and immortalise his acting and songs for ever. With best regards, Anis

Movie Prempatra, starring Shashi Kapoor as blind man and I think Sadhana; Songs: Solo- Yeh mere andhere ujaale na hote agar tum na aate meri zindagi mein; na jaane mera dil yeh kyun kehe raha hai kahi kho na baithun, tumhe roshni mein. And, duet with Suman Kalyanpur (?) Sawan ki raato mein, aisa bhi hota hai, raahi koi bhula huan, tufaano main khoya hua, raaha pe aaye... Incredible man, remembering these soulful Gulzar melodies after all these years...

Khalid Saheb, A few moments back I have uploaded an attachment which is self explanatory. I have gone through the list of ghazals: Listen to Audio. I do not find a ghazal that was broadcast nearly 40 years ago by the A.I.R. I had spoken to the late Talat Saheb then, enquiring about its availibilty. Expressing his regrets he had informed that since that was the private property of the A.I.R. it was not available to the public. Almost 3 decades later the the same ghazal was telecast by the Door Darshan but to my disappointment it was not Talat Saheb; it was a female singer whose rendering I am sorry to state was insipid. The wordings are: "Teri bewafaai kaa shukriya, Mujhe tune jeena sikha diya. Tere gham me chen saa mil gaya, Tere dard ne jo mazaa diya. I had the good fortune to note down the entire piece in Urdu. If interested you may e mail me on: yousuf65@rediffmail.com I will be pleased to scan the ghazal and upload the same to you immediately. Regards, Yousuf

But believe me, very religeously for the last about 40-45 years ( I am now 64), every night before I go to sleep, I listen to his songs and gazals. I have almost all CDs and cassettes of this great man with me. I come to India every two three months for work and I want to visit you and pay my respect for him. Is it possible to meet you and if so, where can I meet you. I generally stay in Pali Hill with my uncle. Please do let me know. I am planning to be there in April. I would love to comeby and see you.

I never knew so much about talat as I learned form this site. Good work indeed. By the way, I am no fan of music, but I have always loved to hear Talat Mahmood's melodious songs...that have the power to tranposrt me into the world of romance. I would have liked to learn more about Talat's past life when he was not a super star...(although a star is always a star...often hidden from the common eye in early years of life). I would like to know about his school days, lucknow life and his family...Just curious. This site only falls short of celebrating the more obscure part of the hero's life, his lucknow days. Best wishes and thanks.. May Talat's soul rest in peace and his melody keep inspiring us for ever...

Talking of a gentleman like Talat Saab one can come across numerous instances. I recall an incidence when he was singing for a packed standing room audience at Ashoka Hotel, New Delhi. He had a sore throat and he felt he was not at his best, kept apologising for that but continued. This was in the winters in early eighties. This was one concert of his that I heard standing as I was late and the hall was packed to capacity. The more he apologised the more the crowd wanted their requests. He continued in spite of the sore throat and no one was really bothered that Talat saab needed a rest. They loved him and he was responding to their love. The biggest praise for the two concerts came from the press on the following days. They admired the selection and dedication with which he went beyond the stipulated time for his fans. What mattered was that he performed and the fans got to hear him. That's what I call being a saintly gentleman who willingly accepts pain for the pleasure of others.

On 13th july 1987 when Talat Mahmood was to be given lions club award along with Anil Biswas & Ashok Kumar, I alongwith my friends visited him at Maurya Sheraton Hotel New Delhi. On our request, he rendered few lines of  "mere khyalon mein aake gale laga ja mujhe" which every one present there enjoyed the session. We cherish that memory still. Talat sahab was a great person, great singer. i fail to understand as to why he was not chosen for sensuous songs,  like a few years before. He used to sing from his heart, not from his lungs. Khalid ji kya aap koi rare cd of his sensuous songs, rare duets with lata &asha &madhubala jhaveri etc. release karwa rahe hain? Pl.do , it is a long time that his cd or cassets was released.

My heartfelt thanks to Khalid bhai  for making this site of Talat Mahmood. I rank him among the two best Hindi Male Singers of Hindi Film Music. His tune was different from that of other contemporary singers. With his Gazal Style tune which he brought into all the Hindi songs he sang, he made a tremendous impact in Hindi Film Songs. Who can forget the following songs that made him immortalized in Hindi Film Songs. Jalte Hain Jiske Liye Meri Yaad Mein Tumna Jayen To Jayen Kahan Aasmawale Teri Duniya Se [ Duet with Lata ] Aaha Rim Jhim Ke Ye Pyare Pyare [ Duet with Lata ] He sang a few Bengali Songs, all of which were super hit, nostalgic. Such was his calibare that upon hearing his Bengali Songs, it is hard to believe that he was not a Bengali.

you ask fans to write something about your great father, the great ghazal singer, TALAT MAHMOOD saheb! I searched several times whole the dictionary to get best words to pay tribute to him but i could not. I listen his gazals e.g koee din gar zindagani... kaon kehta hai tujhe.. mahobat main kashish hogi... and others 10/12 times daily but failed to quench x however have much more to say but will be less x Talat mahmood saheb will remain in our hearts x with best wishes - Zaheer Ahmed Siddiqui, Karachi pakistan presently in USA

Dear Khalid, I am a regular visitor of your invaluable site and have downloaded some songs that I am proud to say are Master pieces. I am a great fan of your beloved father Talat Saheb. But what I have observed for more than a year that some songs are repeated more often and some are not being uploaded like "Mat pooch ye dil par kya guzri" from film Zindagi Aur Toofan. Songs like mere Khayaalon main aake gale lagaaja Mujhe also needed to be uploaded. Please. Best Regards, Hussain

My late father, uncles and friends love to hear his songs. His is a powerful voice that has captured the hearts of millions throughout India, Pakistan and Asia. Words are not enough to sing the praise of an immortal singer. We will remember him with prayers and charity.

His voice was beautiful then; it became a beauty forever after his death. I listen to Talat Mahmood, Rafi and other singers of that time; but Talat Mahmood is still the best ghazal singer ever.

Before my birth my father owned a record store and I was told that whenever my parents listened to music I would lay still. Off course Talat Mahmood Sahib was more than a passing fancy. His music was always around our house. I have listened to him since 1948 and I feel that his voice cannot be duplicated. I am also related to Mr. Naqvi who was the person who organized Talat Mahmood's concert in Karachi in early 60's so there are many "Yadeen" connected to his coming over to Pakistan. Best wishes to him and his family. Thanks for the memories.

During my schooldays, early Eighties, I used to hum a song & was passionate of this particular song. Later on I found that it was Talatji's song-"Itna na mujhse tu pyaar badaa". Quite later in my college days(mid Eighties)when I started liking and appreciating good music/classical music(indian, western) then I came to know that the tune was from one of Mozarts symphony. But I realized that how beautifully rather artfully he justified the tune with his soulful voice and was so close to the tune of the original symphony. That was Talat Mahmood's introduction to me. One can very well understand that during the advent of DISCO music in Eighties and 70's when everyone of my age was into that kind of music I was enthralled by Talatji's AWAAZ and STYLE. He was original.  His voice was sober yet mesmerising voice. His was a voice which could sweep you away from one world to another world- the world of eternal bliss. The perfect urdu diction was unparalleled. He could sing difficult words with ease and undersatanding. He used to sing difficult songs with such ease that every other would feel that he too can sing his numbers but when you try then you realise how difficult is to sing his numbers. That is why you will find less, rather no, Talat clones. I respect his voice as an admirer of good music and pure music.I thank him for giving me comfort and bliss through his beautiful songs. I thank Khalid also for coming out with this website. Warm Regards N K Gautam

My dear Khalid, I am an old acquaintance of your Dad
Shri Talat Mahmood, nephew of Resham Singh +DEEP in
London. I did try and call u in Bombay once but u were busy.
Noticeably the last recording of Talat jee ghazal ke saaz Uthao was an excellent collection of music compostions i donot remember who composed the Music and the tunes but the lyrics and everything is well composed.
But very surprisisngly on the inauguration of Ghazal ke saaz uthao fotograph i donot find the introduction of the music composer i could see Shri Dilip Saira jee and Talat jee but no composer this is perhaps peculiar and also the lyrcist shud have been there
May be u like to give your comments on that.
I still sing the good old melodies of Talat jee which I use to do with friends way back in 1958.
To give you a recap I saw you first many years ago when in Bombay TalatJee told me aboutlearning guitar and may be you were going to school. I used to fly with British Airways and finally i retired from British Airways Delhi Airport. I have two grown up sons Maninder and Suprinder , Maninder lives in London and Suprinder is in Losangles. Being a hobby singer we have a group of friends who all admire and sing Talatjee's memorable melodies and wonderful compositions done by Madan Mohan Anil Biswas and other big comrades of the Music field.
I need the songs from Darbar film I wonder if you can comeback to me and suggest how to get them.
Bye with love and regards Please pay mine and my wife's respect to your Mom whom we had met when Talat Jee was living in this World.
Yours affectionately

I think I am Talat's greatest fan. Talat was my friend in 1952. I was a Police Sub-Inspector working at Bandra Police Station. Talat used to come to the PS once a week to meet Inspector Adkar. Talat had bought his first car and we used to take a ride in the car. Possibly, it was a Morris. Although, I lost touch with him, he was always with me beause I listen to his vibrating voice every day of my life. I am his greatest fan ever. Khalid Saheb, I want to meet you and hold you in my arms. Because, Talat also held you in his arms as a baby!

Dear Mr. Khaled,

As a long time collector of vintage songs of 30s, 40s and 50s, I have always been an ardent admirer of Talat Mahmood. His unique velvety singing style and the incomparable "Soz" in his voice combined well with the "Saaz" of musical giants of that era, notably Anil Biswas, C. Ramchandra, Roshan, Madan Mohan and Salil Chaudhary. Unfortunately, I have just learnt about your website, and hence missed out the songs that were available in the past on the website. I hope to visit this website regularly and request you to provide the rare songs of Talatji once again at your convenience.

Meanwhile please accept my sincere thanks for your wonderful contribution to perpetuating the memory of one of the greatest singers of our times.

Best regards,

Whenever i hear Talat Mahmoods golden voice i just beside myself with emotions. i hear his banla songs all the time. he was a legend. his voice is always evergreen to reach into the deep of the fans' hearts. i also thank you because you have given some songs of Talatji to listen from the website. But i found no bangla songs there. But Talatji has a lot of woderful bangla songs like "Tomare legese eto je valo", "Adho raate jodi", "Nato mukhe keno fire chole jao." and so on like this. now i am already 47 years old and i still hear his songs from the early age of my life. we want to hear Talatji's bangla songs from this website. Please make this probition if there is any. May Allah bless you all. thanks again for this nice website.

Dear Shri Khalid

I have just come across your beautiful site devoted to your late father, the one and only Talat Mahamood. I have been a great fan of his from childhood, and even had the proud privilege of arranging a concert by him here at Cannanore in 1966/67. As soon as Talat Saab landed here, I gave him a list of my favourite songs sung by him and I was very happy that he obliged me by singing a so many of them. I had taped that concert, but that was a 'zamana' of lousy equipment and the tape soon got damaged, and I do not have any copies. Talat Saab was with me here in Cannanore for more than 24 hours and I spent a great amount of time with him. I have got several of his LPs but very very few songs on Mp3 format, and I am trying to collect as many as I can. I would be grateful if you can put all his most popular songs - mainly filmi - once again so that I can refer to them each week and download them. I would particularly like to have the songs "Yaadon ka sahara na hota' from the film 'Pathar ka Khwab'and "Itna na mujhse tun pyar badha' from "Chhaya". Could you also direct me to some other good sites where I can down load Talat Mahamood'd velvet voice.

Just a couple of weeks before he left this world, Sa Re Ga Ma had their Annual Contest on Zee TV and Anil Biswas declared how for him Talat Mahamood was impossible for any one to imitate. He kept a picture of Talat Saab near his chair for all to see.

I hope you will continue keping his memory alive. Such singers are rare and their works are genuine treasure.

With bst wishes

Arun Dattani.

In the childhood I remember my father to be a great fan of Talatsaab but at that age I always liked the songs of Kishorji and Rafisaab. But as I grew up I started to understand the magic of the voice of Talatsaab. Its just like a `Mayurpankh' passing by you touching your body which leaves you haunted by its softness and its great style.
We are going to present a programme of his songs on 8th of May at 6.30 P.M. at Dombivli in Thane district. I strongly wish that you should be present at the programme. Plese reply this mail if it's any way possible.

Talatsaab ki shakhshiyat aur unki ghazal gayeki ke bare men kuch kahne ke liye alfaz kam pad jate hain.samajh men nahi aata ki unki kis kis khoobiyon ke bare men zikr karen,bas itna hi kahna kafi hai ki woh jitne achche ghazal singer hain usse bhi kahin zeyada haseen shakhshiyat ke malik hain.He is remarkable that despite singing in an age where each singer carved out his/her own niche, he remains an enduring favorite despite having a rather limited prolificity. While I would no doubt rate him as the best ever, he is simply best he is not for the age he is for the ages.i love his songs,he sings from the bottom of heart.he is simply the king of ghazal singing.
I dont think we need any words (and inappropriate words at that) to hail him with this great poetic line of Sir allama Iqbal(hazaron saal nurgis apni benuri pe rota hai.,Badi mushkil se hota hia chaman men didawar paida.)

His songs were sung by my late husband,who had a similar voice, he proposed to me by singing "Pyaar par bas to nahi hai" to date I still love listening to Talatji's love songs in my solitude to remember my dear husband and also Talatji.
Its nice to go through the entire website, made with so much love and affection,

I sent you a mesg. earlier as well. I had a chance to Mr. Sohail Rana (a great music director of its own time of Pakistan) here in Toronto. Mr. Sohail Rana and Mr. Rashid Lateef director of HMV Pakistan visied your father in 1984 while he was not feeling well in Bombay. Mr. Sohail Rana conveyed best regards to you. He said whenever he will visit India, will come to see you in person. Your father has song two songs in Mr. Sohail Rana's music. Bother were Faiz Saheb's Ghazals. "Khuda Woh Waqt na Lai" and "Lo Jaraha hay woh koi shabe ghum guzar kay". Mr. Rana has requested a beauitful song of your father "BAIRUN BAITHEE AAS LAGAY" He tried his best to find this with no success. This song is on the other side of 78rpm of "Ro Ro Beeta Jevan Sara" which is in Aimun and the requested song in in Baharvi. IF POSSIBLE AND YOU HAVE THIS SONG, KINDLY POST IT ASAP.

Thank you very much for your great work.

My family is from Lucknow and we lived opposite to your family. My uncle, M. Hashim Khan and your father went to Lucknow University together and your grandfather, Mr Manzoor Mahmood was well known to my grandfather, Captain Abdul Latif khan. Your father sang at our house the night before the family was leaving for Bombay. I still remember my aunts crying and saying good bye to your aunts who were there friends.

I hope one day I will be able to meet you either in Lucknow or here in australia if you plan a concert tour.

Dear Mr. Khalid,
What a wonderful tribute to one of the greatest singers the sub-continent has ever known! I visit your web site frequently. You have done a superb job in putting it together and, like many other devoted fans of Talat Mahmood, I deeply appreciate your hard work. His soft and sweet voice simply cannot be imitated, but his memory will live on through his great film songs, outstanding ghazals and geets. I have most of his songs and ghazals, but I request three songs in your audio section: KOI UMEED BAR NAHIN AATI, MUSHKIL NIKLA DIL KA SAMBHALNA, both from the film CHIRAAGH JALTA RAHA, and KAL RAAT ZINDAGI SE MULAQAT HO GAI from the film Palki. I believe this song from Palki was later sung by Rafi. I would love to hear other songs that your father sang, but were not included in films for one reason or another.

This way we will come to appreciate those really old and forgotten gems. It would be nice to put few Faiz Ahmad Faiz sahib ghazals sung by Talat sahib. Also any songs composed by Khemchand prakash for talat sahib. Has Talat sahib sang any duet with Kanan??

Dear Khalidbhai,
Further to my previous note regarding starting a "Talat" fanclub, I would like to seek your help in finding one of the most favourite songs of Talat Saab - "Teri yaad ka deepak jalta hai" (Gavaiyya - 1954 -Music Ram Ganguly). Please also let me know if CDs are commercially available - details please.
Greetings for Happy Holi (29 March 2002)

A freat site indeed. And on one of my very favourite "fankaars". Talat saab's voice is sheer magic and provides solace and peace to those who have the ability to comprehend it.
There was a series of geets (non-film) that Talat saab released with Anilda in the late 50s.I managed to get 2 of them - "Phir pyar kiya" and "Sitaron tum ghawah rehna". Any pointers to any of the others ?
Anilda is the greatest com[poser to have stepped into films - and his combo with Talat saab was sheer magic.

May Talat saab's magic continue to live on.

Your site is wonderfully informative. My reason for visiting your site is not only my admiration for Talat Mahmood the great artiste, but also because I once had met him, his wife and maybe one of his sons (was he called Guddu?) in the early sixties when I was a very small child --- 5 or 6 years old. The Mahmoods were visiting a childhood friend of Mrs Lotika Mahmood, Mrs Guha Roy who lived in a small ground-floor flat on Kalighat Road, Calcutta. We used to live in the flat above the one rented by the Guha Roys. I vaguely remember Mrs Guha Roy would fondly mention her childhood friend Lotika and she would add that they belonged to the same village.
I write to you to ask the name of the native village or town of Mrs Lotika Mahmood. It's just idle curiosity about one's sweet old childhood days.

Dear Khalid Bhai
I am 27 years old now and have been listening to your father since I was 3yrs old. I was introduced to his great voice by my father and as far as my memory goes in 1977?78?, the first Talat song I heard was from film Dost-'Aye bhi akela..'
For years now, I have accumulated hundreds of his songs mostly recorded from Radio Ceylon but I could never manage to record Dil mera tera... and I cannot express my feeling (may be ecstasy) when I finally heard this song on your site. Everyday I go online, I keep feeding the 3 words 'Dil mera tera' on google but it is not listed anywhere on the net neither it is available on any cassette.
Once again I thank you for the great site and keep the good work going.
Sincerely

Hi Khalid saab,
A great site indeed. I am a frequent visitor to the site simply because I am a die-hard fan of Talat saab. Talat saab, like most great singers of his day, has retained a very fierce, loyal following. The numbers may vary - but I am sure that even as one generation follows another, the magic of Talat saab's voice would continue to cast a spell on all. Kudos to you posting rare songs on a regular basis.

Just a suggestion. Seeng that this site is so huge, I suggest you have a seperate page listing the Updates to your site. I mean, we need to go through each and every page before finding that no updates have been made since that last visit. I think that would be beneficial to all.

Congrats again for such a fine site on the King Of All Singers.

There is no doubt that Talat was the greatest ghazal singer, if not, the greatest singer of the last 60 years. His songs had so much emotion and depth that they have never been replicated in such a way. Paying respects to the late Talat Mahmood is like showing the moon its own reflection in a mirror!
Thank you very much Khalid sahib for sharing with us the public memories and facts about the great singer that was Talat Mahmood.
I am sure I speak for all Talat's fans when I say that his songs/ghazals will live in the hearts of millions all over the world for many many more years to come.
And even amongst the young generation his melodies are much appreciated, as I myself am in my early twenties, and like my parents, have great affection for his tunes.
Many thanks.

Khalid, it would be just wonderful to have a fan club where we could share our feelings for the voice of one of the greatest singers mankind has ever seen. Because it is our responsibility that we keep the fire lit by him burning.

Further, I would like to know if anyone has mp3 version of "hai koi dekh lega" from Ek Gaon Ki Kahani. Request you to send the same across to me, I would be obliged.

Talat saab was The Voice of Indian films. The most distinctive of them all.
But I feel you should also provide due tributes to those legendary composers - in particular Anilda - who supported him along. As I said, his was a truly different voice - so it needed the right guides. Anilda, the greatest of all composers, took him under his guidance. Which is why he blossomed into the geratest voice of all times.
Anyway, congrats on a good site.

Talatsaab has been my favourite singer ever since I could perceive the depths of human emotions. When he was in his prime I was just a kid. although i heard his songs i could not appreciate them till I crossed my thirties. Burt he has been my favourite ever since. His era was truly golden era of Hindi movies. God was liberal with us when many greats peaked during 50's & 60's in singing, lyrics, acting, direction etc. I wish I could actualyy hear my favourite songs of Talatsaab from your site. COuld you do something about it? Meantime I will access the sites you have recommended. Your site is great; it downloads faster than most Indian sites. Keep up good work.

You might be interested to know that we have a number of eminent people on our Editorial Panel including Gulzar Saheb, Shyam Benegal and leading film academics and critics.

I am coming to India later in Sept./Oct. Can you please let me have your contact numbers?

I look forward to your response.

Best regards

Browsed through the Down Memory Lane and a few of the observations by various people. It was like going thru a memory lane of my own. I remember very well when as a young schoolboy, I would sit on the banks of the river Ganges and sing to myself "Hain sabse madhur woh giit jinhein..", with the music going thru my mind just as the waves hit the shore. The song never failed to lift me up.

Talat's voice has been said to be silken, velvety, etc. Sure many other singers have had such voices, but then his was the best to suit the forte of his singing - the Ghazals and Geets.

Talat Saheb was a not only a great singer; he was a good human being. I was lucky to take a ride with him and Inspector Adkar in Talat Sahebs car, which my recollection says, was his first brand new car. Talat Saheb was staying in Bandra then. He often visited Bandra Police Station where I was working as a P.S.I. I was transferred to different Police Stations. I kept in touch with Talat Saheb because he had the most haunting voice in the entire music world. Every day, during the last sixty years, I have been listining to his immortal 'gazals' and duets. I deeply regret the fact that I did not make enough effort to meet Talat Saheb after 1956, which was the last when I met him. I pray to Almighty to give Talat Saheb eternal peace.

Hi Khalid,
I have all my life been a lieral devotee for Talat saab and his songs. I have grown up on them.
His voice remains the solace to millions of injured ones - a voice which seems to echo the depths of despair and yet, balm u.
But just a small word of advice - too much of sugar or sweet is harmful. Despite being an avid Talat devotee, I feel that you have gone overboard with your praises. They do not match with the dignity and modesty which one always associated with Talat saab.

What a lovely web site. As I told Khalidbhai I grew up on Talatsaab's songs. The website is a right combination of nostalgia, pride, detail and some of the most difficult to get pictures. I am very glad that the page "A sad Day " has maintained the dignity which so described both Talat saab and his singing. There was something about Talatsaab, his voice, his demeanour, his reactions to people, a lot of which Khalid seems to have inherited and the website without effort seems to show. It is a sense of peace and of dignity.Do tell me how to go about purchasing all those CDs that Khalidbhai has shown. I will do so at one shot - all eighteen of them.

When I was first sent away to boarding school I was asked to sing a song - not because I was a good singer - just to get me to unwind. The only song I could think up in my panic was Tasveer banata hoon tasveer nahin banati. This was in 1953. I grew up on Talat and have never given up liking him. On one occasion he came to Lucknow and performed at Ravindralaya. This was, I think, in 1966. In one song he missed a beat. And I was most upset. Talat! My Talat! And missing a beat? Impossible. He had always been the acme of perfection to me and here he was demonstrating that he was human! I am keen to get together a collection of his non-film work much of which I suspect I am yet to hear. Ideally in CD format. Can someone help? And my best wishes to Khalidbhai.

Khalid,
I got to know about Talatji through my father's collection of his songs but he made a deep impact on me when I saw Bombay Doordarshan's programme "Shaam Ee Gham Ki Kasam". I am dying to get a copy of that tape. If anyone can help me that would be great! But today when I discovered this website, I would be less sad if I did not get the tape because, the website is so comprehensive - Thanks so much Khalid.

Just wanted to share the moment when one night (12th May 1999) I was making my son sleep with the songs of Talat ji playing at the background. I knew Talatji was very sick and was concerned about his well being. I surfed the net for any information about how he was doing and there I found the news item in Hindu that he passed away just a couple of days back (9th May 1999). Somehow, I could not stop the tears in my eyes. I was fortunate to have had the chance to briefly speak to him over the phone sometime immediately after he got his padmabhushan which he so much deserves. May his soul rest in peace!

Sorry to hear about the loss of India's legend. I did not know about Talatsaab's death until I got on the web site. Khalid, thank you for the site. I just saw Talatsaab's movie "Lala Rukh" on video. I could not believe how handsome he was!! All I knew that he was a great singer, and I grew up listening and loving his songs. I have one solo song tape of Talatsaab's songs, which was prepared by my friend for me. If I ever loose it, I will be lost. I listen to the tape, whenever I need to touch base with real me. In this busy materialistic world, we often forget who we were and what our values, likes nad dislikes were. The current generation will never understand the wealth we had in singers like Talatsaab. When I was growing up, whenever I heard Talatsaab on the Aakashwani, I will stop everything and just listen to that heart touching voice. Thanks again for the wonderful photographs and memorablia. I wish we had the current technology then to record the songs, but even with the old technology, Talatsaab's songs are alive and good to listen to. I do not think we can find his voice and the emotions to re-make of his songs with the current technology, i.e, CD, etc. May be, being his son, you have a voice like him......

Talat's voice will remain eternally in our hearts. I am an amateur singer and I enjoy singing ghazals and if I had the choice I would wish to have a voice, as silken and melifluous as Talat Saheb's. That's the biggest compliment I can pay him.

As a suggestion why not have the words of the songs sung by Talat Saheb.

AT THAT TIME I WAS IN TEENS & MAD AFTER TALAT'S SONGS & GAZALS. I LISTENED TO THAT PROGRAMME WHILE STANDING OUTSIDE NEAR THE GATE OF THE HALL ! I CAN SING VERY WELL & EVEN TO DAY I LOVE TO SING HIS FIRST PRIVATE SONG 'tasveer teri dilmera bahela na sakegi'. MANY MANY MEMORABLE SONGS I KNOW WORD BY WORD. I HAVE FORGOTTEN MANY THINGS BUT NOT THOSE SONGS. TALAT SAAB IS STILL LIVING IN OUR HEARTS. I DON'T FIND WORDS TO EXPRESS MY LOVE & LIKING I HAVE FOR YOUR HANDSOME FATHER !

Hi Khalid Bhai,
It was indeed a nice little surprise to receive an invitation from your goodself to visit a nice site dedicated to our beloved Talat Mahmood Sahab. Talat Sahab with his soft, silken and velvet voice creates a magic which can never fade with time. My daddy always hum Talat Sahab's songs and this was were I first got fascinated with this lovely voice some 10 years back. My fascination still continues and now even I like humming Talat Sahab's songs. There are so many lovely songs and it is impossible to select any one particular - but I always like to hum this particular song "Unke aage gahme dil jukaana pada, roh raha tha magar muskurana pada" As I said I hum these songs for very few can actually sing with the ease as Talat Mahmood Sahab use to sing.....I doubt anyone can actually sing like him creating a SWEET MAGIC !!!!

Thanks for this Wonderful Site of a Wonderful Person.

Lots more needs to be done in order to pay a tribute to this great artist. I am wondering why have you not made a provision to provide clips of his private ghazals which till date have no parallel. "Hoton se gulfisha hai woh............Ankhon se ashk bar hum"
and many others have no match. Anil Biswas was perfectly right in kissing Talat Sahab's photograph in Sare gama Programme. I like to record here that Anil Da said on this day that many Rafis, many Mukesh and Mmny Kishores have come to forefront but not a single Talat like have been noticed. Talat has no copy !

As a little boy my parents had sent me to a missionary high school in karachi,pakistan, so,when I was
growing up I was totally westernized vis-a-vis music,mannerism school friends etc.I still vividly remember
it even after over forty years now, my friend in the neighbourhood invited me to go see a movie with his parents,I did, the movie was Daag. As a teenager I was watching the indian film for the first time. As I was watching the movie Dilip Kumar came on the screen and the voice of Talat Mahmood, the song was
koi nahin mera is duniya men. The song moved me so intensely that I had tears in my eyes. Even today
when I hear this song it brings tears to my eyes. I was simply amazed at Talat Mahmood's incredible voice,it had a strong impact on my life. I gave up all western songs and music and got interested in pakistani and indian film music.
There are two things I have been totally unable to understand and grasp so far in my life, they are
old age and death. Death has taken Talat Mahmood from us.

We had a memorable three hour musical concert on a Friday evening followed by a dinner in my house and Mahmood saab stayed until the dawn of Saturday even though he had to play in Chicago the same Saturday night! Besides being a superb singer, Talat saab was a thorough gentleman took a personal interest in all our guests. We miss him.

I specially mentioned my visit to Zimbabwe and the Music Party, I have had the pleasure to attend. It was Special in the sense that the young singer copied the tune and did not miss out a single word of those two beautiful, but little known Geets of the King of Ghazals. If the Party was in Pakistan, India, Nepal, UK or USA, it was understandable that many among the audience would have known the tune and the words of Talat Sahib's Geets or Ghazals - but Zimbabwe was an unlikely place. The same singer sand a few numbers of Udit Narayan and Kumar Sanu but the crowd appreciation was subdued compared to the continued clappings after he had completed "Aaj use phir dekha hai" or "Main teri chhabi banaonga". Talat Sahib is INIMITABLE. But a much less quality is still raved about. Talat Sahib's silky smooth voice was a gift of God, only to be appreciated, cherished and loved.

Dear Khalid bhai,
Talat sahib has been the greatest Indian singer of all times. People like him are born once in a million years. I had grown up listening to his songs like: Meri yaad main tum na, Main dil hun ek arman bhara, Shame gum ki kasam. Could you kindly e-mial to me his song "Jo kushi se chot khaye" from film dil-e-nadan. Could you also tell me how I could get a copy of this film. All the best: Suresh Pande

At night when it is quiet I sip my wine and listen to songs like: O teer chalaane waale zara aa saamne aa kar teer chala
and like: Zara mud ke to deko saajna.....woh peeche rehgaya bachpana ....aur aage khadi hai jawaani.

Dear Khalid bhai,
Tariq Saheb from Lahore seems to be desperate to listen to 'Zindagi Dene Wale Sun". He has posted two requests within a week. And then we have Mr. Vaidya who was introduced to the great voice by his mother again through "Zindagi Dene Wale Sun"
For the last three months-ever since I heard the Royal Albert Hall recording, Zindagi Dene Wale Sun has been ringing in my mind as I hear it repeatedly on the CD you gave.
What a fantastic rendering of this beautiful song at Royal Albert and the guitarist brought life to the composition of Ghulam Mohammad Sahib! Was I to be there, I too would not have been satisfied and would have joined others to repeat it again, even after Talat Sahib had obliged the fans by re-singing half of it. The icing is that when he sang the second time, he sang his heart out. Had never heard Talat Sahib go so high as he did in London. The comfort I have is that I was fortunate to hear him sing the song in two concerts.
So, the morale of the story..Why don't you put it on the MP3 soon?. Needless to say I am enjoyng his private recordings these days.

His voice was beautiful then; it became a beauty forever after his death. I listen to Talat Mahmood, Rafi and other singers of that time; but Talat Mahmood is still the best ghazal singer.

Before my birth my father owned a record store and I was told that whenever my parents listened to music I would lay still. Off course Talat Mahmood Sahib was more than a passing fancy. His music was always around our house. I have listened to him since 1948 and I feel that his voice cannot be duplicated.

I am also related to Mr. Naqvi who was the person who organized Talat Mahmood's concert in Karachi in early 60's so there are many "Yadeen" connected to his coming over to Pakistan.

During my schooldays, early Eighties, I used to hum a song & was passionate of this particular song. Later on I found that it was Talatji's song-"Itna na mujhse tu pyaar badaa".Quite later in my college days(mid Eighties)when I started liking and appreciating good music/classical music(indian, western) then I came to know that the tune was from one of Mozarts symphony.But I realized that how beautifully rather artfully he justified the tune with his soulful voice and was so close to the tune of the original symphony. That was Talat Mahmood's introduction to me.
One can very well understand that during the advent of DISCO music in Eighties and 70's when everyone of my age was into that kind of music I was enthralled by Talatji's AWAAJ and STYLE.He was original.Original like my favourite Md. Rafi.I had discovered someone else apart from few other greats like Mukesh, Kishore, Manna,Asha & Lata.He was so unique in the sense that no one can near the art of such a shrill, sober yet mesmerising voice.His was a voice which could sweep you away from one world to another world- the world of eternal bliss. The perfect urdu diction was unparalleled. He could sing difficult words with ease and undersatanding.He used to sing difficult songs with such ease that every other would feel that he too can sing his numbers but when you try then you realise how difficult is to sing his numbers. That is why you will find less, rather no, Talat clones.
I respect his voice as an admirer of good music and pure music.I thank him for giving me comfort and bliss through his beautiful songs.I thank Khalid also for coming out with this website.
Warm Regards

I would like to request for Talat Mahmood's following song for "Listen to Audio" website of yours:

2- Dil Ki Duniya Basa Gaya Hai Kaun
Thank you and God Bless.

The readers of this site/guest book know that I am a great fan of Talat Sahib. Two days before a popular singer, who sang more than 12000 songs, Mujeeb alam passed away. May his soul live in peace. He was also a fan of Talat Sahib. In last eighties when his son " Woh mere Samne Tasveer" came on air he became popular amongst music lovers. At that time I and my other college mates met him at Lahore. He said that he loved Talat Sahib from the last core of his heart. He sang Talat Sahib's Bengali Song. Similarly our great Actor Nazir Beg "Nadim" loves Talat Sahib. Mujeeb alam once in Karachi sang Talat Sahib's Ghazal " Kuch Huwa Hasil Nah Ab Tuk". The Music was composed by late Nihal Abdullah. Munir Hussain who was also a popular singer of our country followed the style of Talat Sahib's. In short our popular singers were also great fans of Talat who will never vanish from the hearts of Billion of people. May the souls of both singers " one leader and one follower" live in peace.

Talat Saheb had had a unique style of singing. His personal favourite composer was Late Shri Anil Biswas but, I think Talat Saheb has sung some superb numbers under the baton of Late Shri Madan Mohan Saheb and Late Shri Sachin Dev Burman Saheb. Who can forget songs like Jaayen To Jaayen Kahan, Jalte Hain Kiske Liye, Main Teri Nazar Ka Suroor Hoon, Meri Yaad Mein Na, Humse Aaya Na Gaya to name just a few. Talat Saheb is still alive in the hearts of millions.

I do not listen to Ghazals a lot nor do I listen to Hindi Songs regularly. But the only Ghazals I have enjoyed is that of Mr. Talat Mahmood. He is God's gift to not only our country but for the whole universe. His voice is as smooth as velvet and no wonder he is much loved the world over. This is a great site, in fact I can deem this as a heritage site because it monuments the life and times of one of the greatest sons of India.

Dear Khalid Bhai,
It was nice to meet you at Bombay last week. On returning to Delhi I played the CD you gave me of Talat Saheb's concert at the Royal Albert Hall. It is simply outstanding.

You are floored the moment you hear his lovely voice in chaste urdu. It is so warm that you feel he is speaking to you. His choice of songs was a good mix and a bit different from what I had expected. He was careful in his choice before the popular numbers were sung on request of the audiance. I had never heard him sing "Koi nahin mera is duniya main" in a concert. It is a gem but not heard often. Some of my personal favourites have been the songs that he sang for himself and craved that he would come out with "Jo khushi se chot khaye" after that wonderful rendering of "Zindagi dene wale sun" since they are both from the same film. I wish "Shame-e-gham ki kasam" was there. Needless to say that shall keep me busy for a while and thank you for your own CD. I have all your music and that is why I enquired when do I get to hear the next one.
Finally thank you for your warmth and staying back to meet me though you had another appointment at that hour.

Now this one is for those of you fans that have made repeated requests for songs of your choice on this website.
You may be able to get them but you will never get what Khalid Bhai has offered to us-the live recording.The flavour remains for long. I recommend you order for the recording and believe me it will be one of your most passionate possessions.

All the best.

Dear Khalid Talat Mahmood Sahib: In continuation of my message dated 16th instant I further contribute a tribute to "king of Ghazils" rather "King of Musiqi" late Talat Mahmood. Incendently I gone through the pages of 1958's magzine "Shama". It was reported therin that Pakistani singer late Saleem Raza and Fazal Hussain tried their best to copy the God gifted voice of Talat Mahmood Sahib. But failed. The writed has narrated that Madam Noorjehan used to listen "Gham-e-Zindgi ka ya Rub na mila koi kinara" almost daily and always wept. the writer also narrated his experience of music. He said have a pure silver bowl (Katora). Fetch some water. Place it before radio or gramophone. See the water. When Talat's voice would come the water would vibrate. though the water also enjoyes the golden voice. Our late T.V. artist Prof. Dildar Pervaiz Bhatti once stated in the class room to his students in Punjabi that the voice and style of Talat was un-matched. He also said that there are a number of popular singers in Indo-Pak and sung thousands of songs. But the graph of admiration from people in respect of Talat was always at the zeniths {the highest point}. Kindly include the song of Babal "chor-e-babal ka ghar" in the list of songs of the "King" as this is not available here. Thanks. With warm regards.

When the compare started to announce the results of play back singers and said " Best play back singer" and then taken a pause before the name of the singer was to be announced .... certainly for suspence, during this pause (very little break) late Rafi immediately stood up from his chair to receive the prize.

My memories rolled back to my school days when I used to be very popular with my scholmates the sindhis, Muslims and Punjabis who just loved my imitation of Talaat Mehmood. Even today I remember most of Talat Bhai's songs. When I used to be 'down and out' in Paris as a student I used to sing 'koi nahi mera iss duniya mai;aashiyaan barbaad hai'! My friends used to love me for it. I'd like to meet Samir sometime and sing this song before him if he can find me all the words! I too live in South London. not far from Kingston. So Samir email me will ya. There is no substitution for Talat Bhai. He was my family's favourite in India. My mother's too. Talaat Bhai will live forever in the hearts and minds of all of us.

Mrs Guha Roy and Mrs Talat mahmood were childhood friends. I remember sitting mesmerised before an extraordinarily handsome man with a receding hairline regaling the group with his Bengali songs that were extremely popular in every bengal household. My recollection is that Mr Talat Mahmood's son had a nickname --- Guddu. Could this please be confirmed?

It is so nice to read such warm feelings for Talat Saheb that we share with each other. It is not difficult to reason why we feel the way we do about him.
I think his personality was such that there was nothing but warmth for others and that reflects in our feelings for him. Whenever you read an old interview or hear an old recording or have heard him perform live, you will always recall a good word from him for others. For his music directors, his fellow singers, the actors for whom he has sung etc. The much sought after Sham-e-gham doordarshan recording has him praise Messers Dilip Kumar,Shammi Kapoor,Bharat Bhushan, Madan Mohan, Anil Biswas etc etc as though the credit for his greatness goes to them alone rather than his own voice.
Well what else can you say for a man who always seemed to believe in giving and never in asking.

Keep sharing these feelings that you have, they make us readers feel happy.

It was lovely hearing Talat Saheb's voice aired on the FM-from a Delhi station last week end. Mr.Amin Sayani had his own good words on Talat Saheb and the recordings of his earlier interviews-some decades back were nostalgic. Talat Saheb's voice track was so clear it seemed he was with Mr.Amin Sayani talking live to the listners!
I believe Mr. Deshmukh and you, Khalid Bhai had helped in putting the programme in place. It was equally refreshing to hear your voice. Some who were listening to the FM radio along with me were delighted to hear you. They asked me why arn't you heard as often as some others. And I had to remind them of what Talat Saheb had to said a little while earlier in his recording three decades back on how singers are made in recent years. Your Daddy never compromised and I said possibly neither will you for a bit of cheap popularity.

My dear Khalid, I am an old acquaintance of your Dad
Shri Talat Mahmood, nephew of Resham Singh +DEEP in
London. I did try and call u in Bombay once but u were busy doing your car.
Noticeably the last recording of Talat jee ghazal ke saaz Uthao was an excellent collection of music compostions i donot remember who composed the Music and the tunes but the lyrics and everything is well composed.
But very surprisisngly on the inauguration of Ghazal ke saaz uthao fotograph i donot find the introduction of the music composer i could see Shri Dilip Saira jee and Talat jee but no composer this is perhaps peculiar and also the lyrcist shud have been there
May be u like to give your comments on that.
I still sing the good old melodies of Talat jee which I use to do with friends way back in 1958.
To give you a recap I saw you first many years ago when in Bombay TalatJee told me aboutlearning guitar and may be you were going to school. I used to fly with British Airways and finally i retired from British Airways Delhi Airport. I have two grown up sons Maninder and Suprinder , Maninder lives in London and Suprinder is in Losangles. Being a hobby singer we have a group of friends who all admire and sing Talatjee's memorable melodies and wonderful compositions done by Madan Mohan Anil Biswas and other big comrades of the Music field.
I need the songs from Darbar film I wonder if you can comeback to me and suggest how to get them.
Bye with love and regards Please pay mine and my wife's respect to your Mom whom we had met when Talat Jee was living in this World.
Yours affectionately

Dear Mr. Khaled,

As a long time collector of vintage songs of 30s, 40s and 50s, I have always been an ardent admirer of Talat Mahmood. His unique velvety singing style and the incomparable "Soz" in his voice combined well with the "Saaz" of musical giants of that era, notably Anil Biswas, C. Ramchandra, Roshan, Madan Mohan and Salil Chaudhary. Unfortunately, I have just learnt about your website, and hence missed out the songs that were available in the past on the website. I hope to visit this website regularly and request you to provide the rare songs of Talatji once again at your convenience.

Meanwhile please accept my sincere thanks for your wonderful contribution to perpetuating the memory of one of the greatest singers of our times.

Best regards,

Pradeep

At first i want to thank you a lot to open such type of nice website of my most favourite artist. Whenever i hear Talat Mahmoods golden voice i just beside myself with emotions. i hear his banla songs all the time. he was a legend. his voice is always evergreen to reach into the deep of the fans' hearts. i also thank you because you have given some songs of Talatji to listen from the website. But i found no bangla songs there. But Talatji has a lot of woderful bangla songs like "Tomare legese eto je valo", "Adho raate jodi", "Nato mukhe keno fire chole jao." and so on like this. now i am already 47 years old and i still hear his songs from the early age of my life. we want to hear Talatji's bangla songs from this website. Please make this probition if there is any. May Allah bless you all. thanks again for this nice website.

Dear Shri Khalid

I have just come across your beautiful site devoted to your late father, the one and only Talat Mahamood. I have been a great fan of his from childhood, and even had the proud privilege of arranging a concert by him here at Cannanore in 1966/67. As soon as Talat Saab landed here, I gave him a list of my favourite songs sung by him and I was very happy that he obliged me by singing a so many of them. I had taped that concert, but that was a 'zamana' of lousy equipment and the tape soon got damaged, and I do not have any copies. Talat Saab was with me here in Cannanore for more than 24 hours and I spent a great amount of time with him. I have got several of his LPs but very very few songs on Mp3 format, and I am trying to collect as many as I can. I would be grateful if you can put all his most popular songs - mainly filmi - once again so that I can refer to them each week and download them. I would particularly like to have the songs "Yaadon ka sahara na hota' from the film 'Pathar ka Khwab'and "Itna na mujhse tun pyar badha' from "Chhaya". Could you also direct me to some other good sites where I can down load Talat Mahamood'd velvet voice.

Just a couple of weeks before he left this world, Sa Re Ga Ma had their Annual Contest on Zee TV and Anil Biswas declared how for him Talat Mahamood was impossible for any one to imitate. He kept a picture of Talat Saab near his chair for all to see.

I hope you will continue keping his memory alive. Such singers are rare and their works are genuine treasure.

With bst wishes

I am dyiing to hear him live. Please do not hesitate to tell me the price involved. If you have any such recordings, I will be too happy to grab them.

Talatsaab ki shakhshiyat aur unki ghazal gayeki ke bare men kuch kahne ke liye alfaz kam pad jate hain.samajh men nahi aata ki unki kis kis khoobiyon ke bare men zikr karen,bas itna hi kahna kafi hai ki woh jitne achche ghazal singer hain usse bhi kahin zeyada haseen shakhshiyat ke malik hain.He is remarkable that despite singing in an age where each singer carved out his/her own niche, he remains an enduring favorite despite having a rather limited prolificity. While I would no doubt rate him as the best ever, he is simply best he is not for the age he is for the ages.i love his songs,he sings from the bottom of heart.he is simply the king of ghazal singing.
I dont think we need any words (and inappropriate words at that) to hail him with this great poetic line of Sir allama Iqbal(hazaron saal nurgis apni benuri pe rota hai.,Badi mushkil se hota hia chaman men didawar paida.)

I, also was not aware that Talat sahab sang "chorr ke babul ka ghar." This is a very wonderful site and thank you for sharing it with us. I would also like to mention that a phtograph taken when Talat sahab visited Trinidad contains a picture of my father in the background. He was also one of his biggest fans.
Thank you again
Jai

Dear Khalid:

I sent you a mesg. earlier as well. I had a chance to Mr. Sohail Rana (a great music director of its own time of Pakistan) here in Toronto. Mr. Sohail Rana and Mr. Rashid Lateef director of HMV Pakistan visied your father in 1984 in Bombay. Mr. Sohail Rana conveyed best regards to you. He said whenever he will visit India, will come to see you in person. Your father has song two songs in Mr. Sohail Rana's music. Bother were Faiz Saheb's Ghazals. "Khuda Woh Waqt na Lai" and "Lo Jaraha hay woh koi shabe ghum guzar kay". Mr. Rana has requested a beauitful song of your father "BAIRUN BAITHEE AAS LAGAY" He tried his best to find this with no success. This song is on the other side of 78rpm of "Ro Ro Beeta Jevan Sara" which is in Aimun and the requested song in in Baharvi. IF POSSIBLE AND YOU HAVE THIS SONG, KINDLY POST IT ASAP.

Thank you very much for your great work.

My family is from Lucknow and we lived opposite to your family. My uncle, M. Hashim Khan and your father went to Lucknow University together and your grandfather, Mr Manzoor Mahmood was well known to my grandfather, Captain Abdul Latif khan. Your father sang at our house the night before the family was leaving for Bombay. I still remember my aunts crying and saying good bye to your aunts who were there friends.

I hope one day I will be able to meet you either in Lucknow or here in australia if you plan a concert tour.

I hope you are just as successful as your late father and please feel free to contact me should you want to come to australia either for a concert or a holiday.

Dear Mr. Khalid,
What a wonderful tribute to one of the greatest singers the sub-continent has ever known! I visit your web site frequently. You have done a superb job in putting it together and, like many other devoted fans of Talat Mahmood, I deeply appreciate your hard work. His soft and sweet voice simply cannot be imitated, but his memory will live on through his great film songs, outstanding ghazals and geets. I have most of his songs and ghazals, but I request three songs in your audio section: KOI UMEED BAR NAHIN AATI, MUSHKIL NIKLA DIL KA SAMBHALNA, both from the film CHIRAAGH JALTA RAHA, and KAL RAAT ZINDAGI SE MULAQAT HO GAI from the film Palki. I believe this song from Palki was later sung by Rafi. I would love to hear other songs that your father sang, but were not included in films for one reason or another.

Dear Khalid,
I am writing this to you with utmost nostalgia in mind.
As i go through the site of Talat Sahab, my mind goes
back down memory lane to 1980-81, when Talat Sahab was
so kind to give a charity programme in Cuttack(Orissa)
in aid of flood victims, the state was devastated by
floods that year. My father Mr. Rahman had happened
to know Talat sahab and when a great personality was
required to gather people for a charitable cause,
Talat sahab's name sprung to the mind immediately.
Talat sahab magnanimously agreed to sing for a just
cause, free of charge of course. In no time Talat sahab
was there in Cuttack and took the city and occassion
by storm. If my memory serves me right, i think khalid
u had also accompanied Talat sahab in that programme!
At the moment i am staying in Dubai, with a small business
of my own. I happened to discover this site and u can't believe the joy it gives me,
Khalid u take care and do let us know if u need us
anytime. Thanks and Best regards.

Devdas is said to be doing good business but it is a story that has a soul and those feelings come out from each character in the story. I wonder if the latest version with a whole lot of glamor brings out that soul that made Devdas kind of imortal. I am not sure if I will see it, as I would like to remember Devdas as portrayed by Bimal Roy. Those two songs- one a dead drunk Devdas and the other a sentimental Devdas sang in Bimal Roy's Devdas were classics. Drunks don't sing and yet Talat Sahib brought out a master piece in Kisko khabar thi..One couldn't make out if it was sung or recited, it was so near to bringing out the best from a guy who is hopelessly pissed. The other Mitwa.. was so heart rendering that it brought out the inner feelings of Devdas who was in a terrible pain. They were a perfect blend with Dilip Sahib's acting and could we rate them as a benchmark performance by Talat Sahib that may never be matched ? Well that was the greatness of Talat Sahib and I would rather live with those memories of Devdas than see the hybrid Devdas. It is nearly half a century since those songs were recorded and they shall survive another half a century. That's what you call a classic performance.

Hi,

Thanks for the fine series on Talat saab's geets and ghazals. I have been searching for two popular Talat saab geets - in vain so far. Would be wonderrful if you had them :

- Kya itna bhi adhikaar nahi
- Panchi preet ki reet nibha

And from your lists of Talat saab songs, I found one song which I though had been rendered by Lata only. Have never heard the Talat saab version :
Maangne se jo maut mil jaati, kaun jeeta is duniya me..
A classic number. Do try putting this one too when you get on to the film songs again.
A suggestion - do have an updates section. I mean, the site is so huge that its tough ocating any fresh updates on the page.

Hi Khalid,

Yesterday evening, I relistened to some of my old records of Talat saab - the geet "Ro ro beeta jeevan sara" continues to bring tears to my eyes. There can never be another singer like Talat saab in another 1000 years !!

I have made my next set of requests (hope I am not bothering you with them ?) :
1. I missed out on "Tera khayal dil se" the last time as the link was not working. If possible, could you please try and put in on one more time ?
2. Bhool na jana preet (Do Raha)
3. Ae dil dekh (I think its from "Aabroo" - I saw the movie long ago - and only this song remains in memory)
4. S.D.Batish composed "Khamosh hain sitare"
5. Vasant Desai's "Yahan jeena hi padega" (I think those are the lyrics) - film is "Hyderabad".

Thanks

Believe it or not I and my family hosted his live show in Walsall( a town near Birmingham, U.K.) somewhere between 1965-67 when he came along with Padmini, Ragini, Johny Walker and Shashi kala. The show was a sell out! He was the only artist who I managed to speak with. I asked him only one question as to who makes the money in film industry. His answer"Only heroes and heroines of the films" whilst others either loose or hardly make any money. I wish I had kept his photograph taken with him at the concert though the organiser was very possessive of the artists as in 60"s they hardly visited abroad. I love his couple of famous gazals like " tasvir teri mera Dil Behla na sake gi " The profile on the internet on his life is excellent and has been designed and prepared ungrudingly in terms of time and space utilisation. I live now in toronto and my address is 48 Clancy Drive, Toronto. M2J 2V8. phone No:416-756-2245. Fax no;416-773-1648.

I feel a bit ashamed of myself. Inspite of being a die hard Talat Sahib fan who refuses to relate to any other ghazal singer, it took me four years to know of this outstanding work done by Khalid Bhai. What a shame! It gives a deep insight into the life and times of Talat Sahib that we never knew. It has kind of brought a bonding amongst all of us who are admirers of the legend. Some of us may end up being good friends thanks to the website.
While we will continue to look at the web repeatedly for solace and comfort, we should start sharing our experiances with Talat Sahib. Some never met him and will never know what a wonderful human being he was. His softness was not just in his voice but in his total personality.
The first time I met him was around 1969. That was the first time that I got an opportunity to listen to him in person when he came to Kota for a concert. The next morning I had my first interview for a job in Delhi. The choice was to skip the concert and take an overnight train for the interview or give that a skip and listen to Talat Sahib. I naturally listened to Talat Sahib. The concert was a big hit and more than that was a private sitting after the concert that went on till the wee hours of the morning. A private number that I remember he sang in that sitting was "Sahar ka waqt hai..." Talat Sahib always equated me to that crazy twenty year old (in 1969)who was ready to give up an interview to be with him. I may not have got that job but I got the affection of Talat Sahib for the rest of my life. That is something that I shall cherish as it is very personal. He was always gracious when ever I met him after that.

Hello Talat fans

On Talatsaab's fourth death anniversary today, Radio Ceylon (well, Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation, to give the correct name but for thousands of us who grew up listening to SLBC in the 60s and 70s it WILL always be Radio Ceylon!) broadcast a special programme on Talatsaab. I was lost, listening to the velvety voice . . .

I have a fairly good collection of Talat's filmy and private numbers but it is in no way complete. I am looking for some duets Talatsaab sang with Madhubala Jhaveri. Anyone of you can help me have them? My email address is: pro@iimahd.ernet.in

Any info on Madhubala Jhaveri?

I also recollect a programme of Talatsaab I attended in Bombay way back in 1974. I forget the date but the city had the highest amount of rainfall that day. A friend and I had planned to go for this programme. All transport systems just did not work and my friend dropped out. From Malad to Churchgate, I somehow went changing two BEST buses. Attendence was thin owing to heavy rains but for those who were present (I, that is) it was a memorable programme. The programme got over around midnight and I was planning to spend the rest of the night at Churchgate station. That was never to be because the gates of the station were CLOSED. I just didn't know what to do! As luck would have it, anothet Talat fan was walking with me. He said he knew the warden of the Bombay University warden and would speak to him to let me spend the night there. Sadashiv Menon managed to do that and I slept peacefully. I have lost touch with Mr Menon. He was with Bharat Overseas Bank that had just started.Sadashiv, where are you?

How fast time flies away! It seems as if Talatsaab passed away only the other day. Death waits for none and Talat saab was destined to go away from us one day or another. But the pain remains, for he was a gentleman among the artists of his era. That era and that class of artists are also vanishing from our midst. But for his fans, Talatsaab will be always be among them through his immortal melodies. On his death anniversary, I will keep him alive by playing some ghazals.

I agree with massod sahib in putting as many Audio songs of Talat sahib as possible specially the ones which we have never listened (for those Born after 1960,s). This way we will come to appreciate those really old and forgotten gems. It would be nice to put few Faiz Ahmad Faiz sahib ghazals sung by Talat sahib. Also any songs composed by Khemchand prakash for talat sahib. Has Talat sahib sang any duet with Kanan?? It would be nice to put few Talat Sahib,s private songs written by Sajjan and composed by Anil Biswas on the Request Box. thanx a lot for nice songs.

A great site indeed. And on one of my very favourite "fankaars". Talat saab's voice is sheer magic and provides solace and peace to those who have the ability to comprehend it.
There was a series of geets (non-film) that Talat saab released with Anilda in the late 50s.I managed to get 2 of them - "Phir pyar kiya" and "Sitaron tum ghawah rehna". Any pointers to any of the others ?
Anilda is the greatest com[poser to have stepped into films - and his combo with Talat saab was sheer magic.

May Talat saab's magic continue to live on.

I wholeheartedly appreciate your efforts in presenting the beautiful and detailed website on the great 'Gazal King'. Talat Mahmood had cherished all his fans world-wide with his unique singing style and also had contributed a lot to the film industry. He will always remain an inspiration for the upcoming gazal singers. I especially liked the photograph titled 'all time great'. Do you have any photograph of Talat Mahmood and Mohd. Rafi, together? In spite of all my efforts, I have failed to find one. I hope your idea inspires others and expect to see more websites on other great singers like Rafi, Asha, etc.

The greatness of Talatji can't be captured in words. His beautiful style of singing is really unparalleled in every respect. It touches the very core of one's inner self. The true merit of his songs is in the fact that they are still so fresh in the minds of the people even after so many years ! Thanks a million dear Khalid for bringing out this fantastic website !!

What a pleasure to have access to a website dedicated to Talat saab. Our group of friends grew up in the 1980s when he had virtually stopped singing. Yet we ended up as great fans of his. The gentleness and romanticism in Talat Mahmood's singing can never be recreated. He was unique. There have been Rafi, Kishore and Mukesh clones, but nobody has yet been able to sing as Talat saab did. I hope Talat fans across the world support this website.

Dear Khalid,
I have been a long time Talat fan for as long as I can remember. I read about the site today in The Indian Express and it pleased me no end to surf it. It's designed quite well, but the one thing that disappoints me is the fact that you do not have lyrics of the immortal songs he sang. That's just not done and I hope you will do something about it. But in all other respects , the site comes out tops. I only wish Talat saab would have been alive to see this amazing feat of technology.

Hello to all you talat sahabs fans from yet another of your breed,

You will never hear a voice say "Arrey Awaaz Dheeme Karna" when Talat Sahab is singing such was the effect of the gentle caress in the voice.Talat Sahab is by miles the most soothingly beautiful voice mankind has ever heard.One thing i Noticed and would like to mention here is the fact that his voice and singing were of such a high quality that rarely did one ask the name of the composer when one hears any of his song.
This is a wonderful website and wiil be savoured by all Talat Mahmood Fans a much needed detailed insight.

Great tribute to a great singer. Talat's interview by SaritaSethi on Bombay Doordarshan was one of the best where Talat Sahab mentioned that he did not think that Hindustan would ever have a voice like KL Saigal again.  I wish to add that we will not see the likes of Talat either. I had once written a fan letter to him and I was absolutely stunned to get a letter back from him. Written in a  beautiful hand, he agreed that the age of great music in Hindi movies was past. I cherish that letter as one of my pricest possessions.

Dear Khalid,
Talat Mahmood is not only our favourite singer, he is the only singer we listen to. I now live in Columbia, SC, USA, but for the past 20 years I have listened to many of his songs, a countless times. I never, ever get tired of listening. Always makes me feel nostalgic. The songs, all hits, each one better than the other, are real treasures. Never again will we see the likes of another Talat Mahmood again. It's as though he is a part of my life, my family. I have seen his documentary "An evening with Talat" several times. It is a classy programme. He is true royalty. He dwarfs Rafi, and Mukesh with his royal voice that was never commercialized. Pure in all aspects, Talat brings joy and happiness to me like nothing else. He was like a heavenly enitity that walked upon this earth. Immortal. I wish I had a chance to see him.

Millions of thanks for launching this website for the benefit of countless fans of Talat Saab. You’re a worthy son of a worthy father; I salute you for this commendable job! There is not a single day when I do not listen to his film/private songs; in fact my son has set the multimedia hotkey program on my computer to some selected songs recorded (in the MP3 format) from the cassettes we have bought. So I pursue my academic work on the computer with his melodious voice in the background. In my view he was the most charming and likeable personality in the film world. The website is most informative and the photographs are beautiful. Can you introduce columns on YEAR and LYLICIST in the song lists (solo as well as duet). Apart from these selections, can you please also provide a list of private songs along with year, lyricist and music director?

I was deeply moved by his voice recorded in the 5-part Legends series (HMV Cassettes No. RPG/STHV 831943-7) when he said, “Yehi dua karaunga sabse, apne sunanewalon se bhi aur Allah se bhi, ki log inhin ganon ke jariye se mujhe yaad karen. Jo kuch achchhaiyan in ganon ne unko di hain ya kuchh unki zindagi mein koi madad ki hain mere ganon se,… ye sabse bara reward hai mere vaste” What I could not say to him, I am telling you that his songs have helped me a lot towards achieving perfection; they bring solace in sorrow moments and I get recharged. I firmly believe that a person who develops a taste for Talat saab and his songs can commit no crime, in fact he cannot do anything wrong in his life, such is the magic, charm and ‘positive’ feedback in his voice. He combined in his voice sensitivity, romanticism and spirituality.

Talat saab has been my favourite and only favouriet all these years.His melodious voice stands for all that India was in the 50s- peace-loving(Nehru?),soft and cultured.Far removed from the brashes of Yahoo and the screeches of the 70s, his voice stood for all the romantics and sentimentalists. I propse that all Talat fans(at least in India)share their collections. A sort of net-publn can be begun and any song collections can be recorded and posted. I possess some 200 Talat songs and shall post a list of them soon and this I shall convey thorugh this site. Anyone wanting any collections may mail to me. Hoipe others respond too-I hope to spread it to all lovers of Talat and old film music.

The tribute to the Melody King is marvellous. Talat Saab was one of those, who leave their footmarks on the sands of times.
Though I am quiet young (read 27 years) I have grown up listening to his melodies - 'Talat Mahmood in blue mood' and others. My all time favourites are 'Raat ne kya-kya kwab dikhaye' from "Ek gaon ki kahani", & 'Ashkon mein jo paya hai' among others. I am priveleged to be born in a family, which is full of music lovers and more so lovers of Talat Saab.

My rich tributes to the Music Legend and sincere prayers for the departed soul.

I had a farmaish of my own and had requested Talat Mahmood to sing his beautiful song "TASVEER TERI DIL MERA BEHELA NA SAKEGI" and he had graciously agreed.

Are you aware that your father has sung one malayalam song!. I dont remember the movie, however it should be in the early seventees. The lyrics goes like this...
"katalee neelakatalee ,nin athmaavilum neerunna chindakal oundoe.."
The meaning is "Oh sea, blue sea, do you also have poignent memories in your mind, the sleepless nights of memories of a beautiful girl".

You've got a great site in memory of your late father (May Allah have mercy on his soul). Although I may be too young for Mr. Mahmood's music, but my late father was a great fan of his. My parent's are from Afghanistan where the former king Zahir Shah is also a great admirer of the late singer.

Khalid Pyaareh,
Congratulations for an excellent job, labour of love i guess. Inshallah, every fan of Talat Mehmood bhai will shower their blessings for this favour you have done them all. I am only regretful, why i didn't know of this before. Looking at the pictre some in b/w, some in period dress of sherwani & pyjama, reminded me of our family albums, I think despite Talat saab being a greate artiste in his area of artistry , he reflected modesty & simplicity.

It was in Trinidad where I got to hear the sweet voiced Talat Mahmood. In the live concert he sang songs that just flowed so effortlessly one after another.That was in the sixties. Since then everytime I hear his duets with Lata, I feel like I am listening to it for the very first time. A class act. He will always be remembered by true music lovers.

This is a great site. It is most fitting tribute to a legend who will be remembered eternally.My favourite Talat songs are:
Meri yaad mein tum na ansoo bahana
Ye hawa ye raat ye chandani
Hum dard ke maaron ka itna hi fasana hai
Hai ye wohi aasman
Aye ghame dil kya karoon

there are many ghazal singers living and dead, but no one knew and rendered the depth to ghazals as Talat Saab did

I am a great fan of Talat Mehmood. 'Shame gham ki kasam aaj...' is marvellous. Recently come to know that he studied in the same school I studied in, Minto Circle, did you know?.

It was a great pleasure to see the web-site. I was introduced by my father as a child to Talat's singing and have been a fan since then. I had the good fortune to attend one of his last concerts at Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir in Pune and it was a thrill to meet him after it.
