            Rafi saab god's own voice yet very simple human being. he could cover any mood so easily and changed voice tonal quality to suit the actor. he deserves Bharat Ratna for his contribution to music and unifying this land of diverse culture and language. There has been enormous delay in taking this delay he should be honored it will be not just the honor of RAfi saab but Bharat Ratna will also get honored.
