One interesting aspect that Pyarelal recollected and shared has really got us astonished.

And that is about a secret of the great late singer Mohammad Rafi.

Yes, Pyarelal revealed a big secret about the late Mohammed Rafi’s morning routine. He revealed how Rafi ji used to wake up early in the morning and boil dry fruits like almonds and pistachios. He further added how the legendary musician would then add the water extracts from it in his dry fruits special tea. As Pyarelal ji said, “Rafi Ji used to carry 2 big kettles during his recording studio visits. It was something that made him happy. So, whenever he would get upset with anyone, everyone knew his weakness – tea. I remember when he was upset with me, I told him, ‘Rafi ji please give me some tea.’ He would happily tell his team, ‘sir ko chai pilao’, and everything would be okay.” Interesting, isn’t it?


It is very interesting to know of the great singer Rafi’s passion for drinking tea, in his own special way!!
