[Very rare song in a rare voice thought to post on the blog. enjoy this thumri . These are our forgotten masters and pillars of Indian secular culture.]

khan saheb abdul karim khan was from Miraj and was a court singer with the mahraja of Kohlapur & sang this song in 1925-26. in raga jhinjhoti in thumri style. Khan saheb died in 1937.Saigal sang this song in ‘devdas’ in 1935under the music direction of Timir Baran so beautifuly & khan saheb was so pleased that he congratulated saigal.
