There could not have been higher praise. And this ultimate praise came from the music composer Salil Chowdhary who famously said , “If God decided to sing , he would do so in the voice of Hemant Kumar.”
Not only was he the most famous singer from Bengal but ranked alongside the greatest singers in the golden era of hindi cinema .
Saregama’s MP3 called Safar a musical journey is indeed a fine collection if you’re a Hemant da fan .
Notable are Sun Ja Dil Ki Dastan , Aa Gupchup Pyar ,
Jaag Dard-E-Ishq Jaag , Yaad Kiya Dil Ne , Na Yeh Chand Hoga , Chup Hai Dharti Chup Hai , Halke Halke Chalo Sanware , Nain So Nain .
Hai Yeh Duniya Kaunsi , Yeh Mast Nazar Shokh Ada , Yeh Hansta Hua Karvan , Baharon Se Poochho, Nai Manzil Nai Rahen , Mujh Ko Tum Jo Mile , O Neend Na Mujhko Aaye , Hai Apna Dil To Aawara .
Tumhen Yaad Hoga Kabhi Hum , Lahron Pe Laher Ulfat Hai , Gumsum Sa Yeh Jahan , Yaad Aa Gai Woh Nashili .
Na Tum Hamen Jano , Beqarar Karke Hamen Yu Na , Zindagi Kitni Khubsoorat Hai , Yeh Nain Dare Dare , Chhupa Lo Yun Dil Mein , Umr Huyi Tumse Mile , Tum Pukar Lo Tumhara , Ya Dil Ki Suno Duniyawalo. And that eternal song from Pyasa : Jane Woh Kaise Log The .
