Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
Plato (an ancient Greek Philosopher)

God respects me when I work, but he loves me when I sing.
Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore (Nobel Laureate)

A person who takes medicine must recover twice. Once from the disease and once from the medicine. Whereas music is doubly blessed.

Rafi’s music undoubtedly belongs to this class of music!
