Poornima with Gautam Dey
 Tera Mujhse Hai Pahle Ka Naata Koi
By : Gautam Dey

A pretty Doll became a budding Star, convincing the Musical ear,

That she was here, without any fear, to become every Fan’s Dear,

Her message to Bollywood in the 60s was utterly loud and clear,

As a Child Singer, she induced Music Directors to stand up and hear,

“Hai Naa Bolo Bolo” from “Andaz” was a melodic rage all over the sphere,

Musical efforts, sincere dedication made global audiences to lovingly cheer.

An Artiste of determination, born in Mumbai as a cutely little “Sushama”,

A Sweet Naughty voice was here in Bollywood to rock Indian Cinema,

A Sensation in quick time, a musical gift from God Saraswati Pratima,

Put the reigning singing legends those days in a slight adorable dilemma,

A Happy Marriage to “Harish Chandra” brought her spirited profession to a coma,

But bounced back to excite the world to stamp her rousing renewal as “Poornima”.

Playback Singer for four decades acclaimed by all popular Stars in Bollywood,

With Lataji and Ashaji ruling the studios, her fresh voice was welcomed for good,

Bold enough to sing with Legendary Singers, every Music Director had understood,

A Pride for her Father Bholaji Shrestha, each ups and downs she had withstood,

Respected and adored by Musicians off-stage, she is an admired loving Dude,

She sustained Goodwill with thorough Dignity, as much as she could.

“Humko Man Ki Shakti Dena” is a Prayer rendered devotionally at every place,

“Tu Tu Tu Tara” the Chartbuster, brightens and lightens many a children’s face,

She carries herself in Society, with commanding respect and full of Grace,

Never got embroiled in any controversy, or in any ugly Musical race,

She comes from the Shrestha Family, with cultured values and a strong base,

Principles inbibed in her two sons, affectionate and warm in every trace.

A loving buddy, confident comrade and a great human to glowingly comprehend,

My genuine acquaintance with her as a Companian and nothing else to pretend,

Proud I feel, when she feels, recognizes and introduces me as her Best Friend,

I would always keep this bond vibrant and bubbly, an active promise to defend,

Celebrities maintain Friendships as formalities, closeness usually they try to amend,

But Poornimaji’s Care and Concern to our Amity would always remain till the end.

Dekho Abhi Khona Nahin, Kabhi Juda Hona Nahin,

Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi, Yuhin Nahin Dil Lubhaata Koi……

Na Aaye Is Dosti Ke Beech, bure Dushman Koi,

Yahi Ishwar se Prarthana Hai Meri, Hamaare Iss Dosti Ko Nazar Lage Na Koi….

(Gautam Dey is a singer and has performed on stage with all the legends and celebrities of Hindi film industry)
