Reshma

1947 – November 03 , 2013

 

 

 

Popular folk singer of Pakistan , Sitara – E – Imtiaz Reshma died in Lahore on November 03 , 2013 . She was only 66 years old at the time of her death . She was suffering from throat cancer .

She was born in Bikaner , Rajasthan in a Banjara family . Her tribe migrated to Pakistan after partition and settled in Karachi , when she was just one year old .

With no formal training in music , she , during her childhood , used to sing at the mazars of Sufi saints of Sindh . She was spotted singing ” Laal Meri ………………… “ at the shrine of Shahbaz Qalander at the age of 12 by a radio producer . The producer arranged recording of this song . She became a national sensation in Pakistan , when she sang ” Laal Meri ………………… “ on Pakistan Radio in 1959 .

Apart from , “Dama Dam Mast Kalandar ……………………………. “, her other famous songs are ; “Hai O Rabba nahion lagda dil mera ……………….”, “Sun charkhe di mithi mithi cook mahiya meinu yaad aunda ………………….”, “Wey main chori chori ………………………………..”, and “Ankhiyan nu rehen de ankhyan de kol kol ……………………………”.

She sang some famous numbers for Hindi films also .

Her famous and hit song “Ankhiyan nu rehn de ankhyan de kol kol ……….” was used by Raj Kapoor in ” Bobby ” [ 1973 ] . Hindi version is “Ankhyon ko rehne de ankhyon ke aas pass ………………….”. In the film it was sung by Lata Mangeshkar .

Subhash Ghai used her voice in the film ” Hero ” [ 1983 ] , which featured one of her most famous songs , “Chaar Dinaa Daa Pyaar O Rabbaa ………. , Lambi Judai ……………………… “.

I became acquainted with Reshma ji’s voice when I heard ” Lambi Judaai ………….. ” , the song from ” Hero ” [ 1983 ] . It is unfortunately strange that I first heard Dama Dam Mast Qalandar ……………. ” in Runa Laila‘s voice . I liked the song . Years later when I heard the original in Reshma ji’s voice , I was mesmerized . After that it was sheer admiration for her untrained , rustic , sweet and beautiful voice .

I was shocked beyond belief when I heard about her death . One more icon of my growing years , one more familiar face of my adolescent age , one more eternal personality , which fascinated me beyond words , is gone forever .

I am posting few photos of her’s . I never realized that she is drastically changing with time . Her beautiful , rustic face was slowly getting full of wrinkles . And alas ! you can find her frail , incapacitated , lifeless body in a bed in the hospital . She spent last one month of her life in coma .

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I offer my condolences to her daughters , son and other family members .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre also express grief and offer tribute .

May her soul rest in peace ! She very aptly sang , ” Chaar Dina Da Pyaar O Rabba , Lambi Judaai …………………….. ” . But alas ! It is not Lambi Judai , It is Hamesha Ki Judaai .

Her earthy , rustic and beautiful voice is now silent . Sweetness of ” Char Dina Da Pyaar …………………… ” is lost and it is lost forever .
