Melody Queen Book


Compiled & edited by:    S.M. Shahid


Editor's note:
[This] book...is perhaps, the first published book on Noor Jehan in English. It contains articles written by prominent Pakistani writers and published in national newspapers and magazines... [which] extensively cover her life and work of nearly six decades.

The CD accompanying this book has 20 unforgettable numbers of Noor Jehan selected from a vast treasure of her songs sung between 1942 and 1968.

Review:
"She caught the showbiz bug at the tender age of seven, grew up in Lahore, Calcutta (Kolkata) and Bombay (Mumbai), acted and sang with musical giants and ruled over the film world for over six decades. Rarely had an artiste in the subcontinent achieved such an enviable position in her lifetime as Noor Jehan, the Melody Queen. With her exceptional voice, extraordinary talent and a charming face, Allah Wasayee of Kasur, became an institution in herself.

Dedicated to Priya

Priya Gainneos

We are a group of volunteers trying to make a site in honour of Madam Noorjehan probably the greatest singer-actress ever to grace the silver screen. It is dedicated to the memory of one of Madam's biggest fans the late Priya Gainneos. Priya, we are sure you are up there listening to Madam live in heaven. May your soul rest in peace and May God give your family and friends the strength to bear the loss. We can never forget you.Thanks a lot to the Hamaraforums founders for making this dream of Priya (to have a site in honour of madam) come true.
