Rafi won the Flmfare and National Award for Kya hua tera vada from Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin (1977). But this could not be much of a consolation. It would be difficult to put this song among his greats or anywhere near Kishore Kumar’s iconic songs of the period. Rafi’s sudden fall from the pedestal must have been bewildering to him, as it was to his fans. Incidentally Manna Dey and Mukesh would not have suffered the same agony. Their strength was never in numbers but in quality, they were not as prolific as Rafi. In the new era too their well known songs can easily be placed among their greatest – Manna Dey’s Nadiya chale chale re dhara , Yaari hai imaan meri yaar meri zindagi , Zindagi kaisi hai paheli , Ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo ; or Mukesh’s Duniya se janewale jane chale jate hain kahan , Kahin door jab din dhal jaye , Maine tere liye hi saat rang ke sapne chune , Jaane kahan gaye wo din , Main pal do pal ka shair hoon , Kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayal ata hai etc.
