Hum, rahen ya na rahen kal
Kal yaad aayenge ke ye pal
Pal, ye hain pyar ke pal
Chal, aa mere sang chal
Chal, soche kya
Chhoti si, hai zindagi
Kal, mil jaaye to hogi khush-naseebi!

We had the same alma mater, we toured a lot during Channel V.
Flights, rehearsals, hotel buffets, time spent together.
Never an unkind word, never an unkind thought. The nicest, politest, warmest, loveliest human. I’m numb. Gone to soon KK, gone too soon 💔

Hearing heartbreaking news of singer KK passing away while performing in Kolkata. Remember meeting him at Infosys, Pune in 2011. Was very humble & gave a rocking performance that night. “Pal” “Yaaro Dosti” “Tadap Tadap” are some of his evergreen hits. Om Shanti 🙏
