Songs and Bollwood

Rampant plagiarism exists, but there have been some really amazing songs in Bollwood. Many of them with some of the most poignant lyrics I have ever come across. An example is "Rahen na rahen hum" from Mamta (1966). While it has been beautifully sung and the music is wonderful as well, it is sad that Lata Mangeshkar gets all the credit. Through this post I pay a personal tribute to Majrooh Sultanpuri. Just felt like it.
