Comments - This is a pretty good example of Kedar.  There is a little mixing which creeps in about a third of the way through the song, but by Bollywood standards, this mixing of non-Kedar elements is minimal

Darashan Do Ghanashyam Naath Morii Ankhiyan Pyasi Re
Film - Narsi Bhagat
Year - 1957
Rag - Kedar
Tal - Tintal
Music Director(s) - Ravi
Singer(s) - Hemant Kumar, Manna Dey, Sudha Malhotra, Chorus
Comments - This filmi bhajan was thrust into international attention when it was one of the questions in the film Slumdog Millionare.  In the film it was incorrectly stated that this bhajan was written by the blind saint Surdas.  In fact the music was by Ravi and the words were by G.S Nepali.
