“John Jani Janardan, Tara Rum Pum Pum Pum Pum”

Another vinyl record from the early 80s – Naseeb. I think the movie came out when I was in ninth grade. But I heard the songs for the first time in my tenth grade when Niladri Dutta bought the cassette and invited Avijit and me over to his house.

Given the recent demise of the Nightingale of Bollywood – Lata Mangeshkar – this might be an interesting trivia: A song in this movie – “Rang Jamake Jayenge” features the voice of three of the Mangeshkar siblings. (Lata, Asha and Usha). I am not sure if all the four sisters (all singers) ever sung a song together.
