We keep searching for rare and lesser heard gems of Geeta ji and on the eve of her 85th Birth anniversary we are pleased to share some rare gems. We will be posting five songs per each post. All of these have been collected from various sources over several years of painstaking efforts. We are grateful to our dear friend Aditya Pant for sharing these extremely rare songs with us. This is the sixth part in this series.

1) Geeta Dutt, G M Durrani, Meena Kapoor – O rani mainawati..Dil ko chhod ke chalo – Ghayal (1951), MD- Gyan Dutt, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak.
This is another rare song from Ghayal (1951)

2) Geeta Dutt, Mohd Rafi – Soyi hamaare spanon ki duniya – Aadhi Roti (1957), MD- Avinash Vyas, Lyrics – Pandit Bharat Vyas.
