It was indeed a delightful evening to listen to doctors singing before a  cheering audience at the NCZCC on Sunday evening. The programme, Geet jo ban gae moti’ was  staged  by ‘Hansdhwani’ an organization formed by some doctors who are extremely fond of songs of the vintagse era, Dr S.P.Mishra stole the show by rendering Manna Dey’s tough song, ‘Laga chunari mein dagh’ including the tarana.

This was his tribute to Manna Dey who passed away last year. Manna Dey was sung by Dr Agarwala too when to tapping feet he sang ‘Ai meri zohra jabin’. Earlier he also rendered Manna Dey’s ‘Basant Bahar’ number, the soul stirring and heart wrenching  song:’Sur na saje kya gaaoon main’, There was a surfeit of OPNayyar songs but one wonders why they forgot to present a Shamshad Begum song when they did mention that she too had passed away last year. Shamshad had sung for their favourite Nayyar too- songs like, ‘Reshmi salwar’, ‘Kabhi aar kabhi paar’ and the famous duet with Kishore, ‘Meri neendon mein tum’. That was regrettable omission.
Madhuri Mittal was at her best singing those Asha numbers of Nayyar. And she was simply wonderful while singing, ‘Jaiye aap kahan jaiye ga’. The opening speeches of Dr Manisha Dwivedi and  DrRajiv Sharan were indeed inspiring. Dr Rajiv Sharan  was very impressive while singing, ‘Tu sochta hai kya’. His duet with  spouse Juhi was well rendered, ‘Phir na kije meri gustakh nigahi ka gila’ . But  while addressing her in the song, he was not looking at her!
Dr Manisha Dwivedi appeared on the stage twice to sing duets with Dr S.P.Mishra. Their rendering of the ‘Pyasa’ duet, ‘Hum aap ki ankhone mein’ was well received. How Dr Manisha Dwivedi and  other medicos managed to combine medicine with melody was indeed worth watching. Dr Anil Mathur and Jyoti also rendered some melodious songs. Juhiji’s , ‘Ayega aane wala’ was a tough song to sing. The announcer said it was tuned by Naushad. I may correct her. It was tuned by Khemchand Prakash who gave a break to Kishore and was privileged to direct K.L.Saigal in ‘Tansen’. Duets rendered by Dr S.P.Mishra and Nandini were also well received. A surprise item was the Kishore number, ‘Tera muskurana gazab ho gaya’  rendered by NCZCC Director Gaurav Krishna Bansal  who delayed his departure to Delhi to be present at this function. With mike in hand, he was moving about on the stage in the Kishore style!
