Thank you so much for posting this valuable information. Yes, so far his contributions have remained unrecognized. Hopefully, articles like this one will create and develop some understanding, about our “not-so-famous” but lovely music directors like Mohammad Shafi and others, will not be totally forgotten from the music industry. I am sorry to hear about his hardship during the last days of his life. Sadly, it has happened with numerous artists, in the world of cinema; which is a lucrative but ruthless business, indeed.
Appreciate it, thank you again.
