    "Legendary singer Asha Bhosle is celebrating her birthday on September 8 and has turned 87 this year. Asha Tai as she is fondly called rang in the celebrations with her near and dear ones.
    ...
    Talking about her life and journey, Asha Bhosle concluded, "Looking back, Asha Tai has no regrets. I am happy I have lived and loved. I have lived an honest life. I am happy that I stood on my own feet as a 10-year-old singing my first song. Today at 87, I am still singing and standing on my own feet. And I have a beautiful family and an even larger fan-family. What more could I ask for!"
    'No regrets, happy I lived and loved', says legendary singer on turning 87

    Jab koi khwab chamakta hai haqeeqat banke ...
    koi kismat se chala aata hai, kismet banke..

    One of her lesser known songs. From the movie Ahista Ahista (1981). That movie's other song Kabhi kisi ko mukammal jahan nahin milta is more famous. I like Jab koi khwab for its simplicity and how you can listen to it "effortlessly." And there is something sensuous yet innocent in the song.

    Chain se humko kabhi aapne jeene na diya
    Zehar bhi chaha agar, pinaa to peene na diya

    (Pran jaaye per vachan ne jaaye, 1974)
    The sheer depth of sadness and pain when she sings, "zehar bhi chaha agar." Easily my favorite sad song to listen in not-sad times. : )

    I found a live version, sung on Doordarshan.

    Nice picture of her, feels nice to see a b&w one instead of the usual white and red silk or other silk saree one that google returns.

    Wrapping up my favorite Asha songs with Jawani Janeman ... sentimental value... Namak Halal was the first audio cassette I bought just for myself : ) independently from the music store. I like Raat baqi better but Asha ji's birthday calls for at least one fast song.

    Happy Birthday Asha ji!

    I don't know all of her songs but I can say her voice is as sweet as sugar and that is eternal.
    "Churaliya Hain thum ne jo dil ko" from Yaadon ki baarath comes first in my mind when I think my favorite songs of Asha Ji.



    Next one is Radha Kaise na Jale from Lagan. I feel jealous in her voice too.:)
