It was a  nostalgic ‘gaana khazaana’ night where the guests went into raptures, as Nitin Mukesh  sang his legendary father Mukesh’s songs ‘Saawan Ka Mahina’ and ‘Kahin Door Jab’ with Anup Jalota humming with him even as he played his harmonium.

The occasion  was Anup’s private janamdin-jashn held at his luxurious Shivaji Park terrace apartment. The late-night-mehfil saw mind-blowing vocal wizardry by celeb-singers Hariharan, Suresh Wadkar, Talat Aziz, Papon and of course host Jalota himself. Ace violinist Sunita Bhuyan also enthralled the music-buffs.

Most of the pop-playback singers like Richa Sharma, Jaspinder Narula, Sujata Majumdar,  Penaz Masani, Rekha Bharadwaj, Preety Bhalla, and Madhushree presented their ‘vocal’ tohfaa to the exuberant birthday-boy Jalota.

“It was a gharelu mehfil where all the celebrated singers were so down-to-earth, as they  sang sentimentally,” smiled jovial ‘host’ Anup, who had specially arranged for sumptuous authentic Hyderabadi biryani.  Also present at the ‘raat-baaki-baat-baaki’ bash were actresses Aarti Nagpal, Kashish Vohra, Apurv Nain, danseuse-model-artistes Saakshi Bhandari and Nilaanjana  and eminent showbiz personalities Kunickaa  Sadanand  and Yusufbhai  Lakdawala.  

Clad in an elegant crimson-red kurta, Anup played the ‘perfect host’ all through the evening. Finally, when guest Kailash Kher walked into the party well-past midnight and  exclaimed, “Anup-ji I see God in you” and even fondly fed him portions of food, the birthday boy’s party seemed to have reached its divine climax.’

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
