Master Madan - Yun Na Reh Reh Kar Hamein Tarsaiye

Master Madan (Gurmukhi: ਮਾਸਟਰ ਮਦਨ; 28 December 1927 - 5 June 1942) was a talented Ghazal and geet singer of India of pre-independence era. During his life, he only recorded eight songs, and these are now commonly available. He was born 28 December 1927, in Khan Khana, a village in District Jalandhar District (now Nawanshahar) of the Punjab.[1] This village was found by reputed courtier of Akbar, Abdul Rahim Khan-i-khana, who was a prolific writer. He died on 5 June 1942,[1] reportedly due to mercury poisoning of his milk while at Shimla.

His eight songs are:

  • Bagaan wich peengan paiyaan (Punjabi)
  • Raavi de parle kandey (Punjabi)
  • Yun naa reh reh kar hamein tarsaaiye (Urdu Ghazal)
  • Heyrat se tak rahaay hain jahane wafaa mujhe (Urdu Ghazal)
  • Goree goree baiyaan (Thumri)
  • Mori bintee mano kanha re (Thumri)
  • Man ki man hi mahi rahi (Gurbani)
  • Chetnaa hei to chet le (Gurbani)
