Taking to Instagram and sharing the interesting story behind it, the singer wrote, "Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi | Rafi ke Rang Geeton ke Sang program | 31st July, 19 So this is the proper recording of the complete 'Chal ud ja re panchhi' on 31st July, 1988, Siri Fort Auditorium, New Delhi. My first Award for Mainstream music. I had just turned 15 the day before this performance. My father had won the same competion just 2 years back in 1986 and he had professed confidently to his friends that next year my son will come and take this award. It took one more year for my voice to reach maturity so his profecy came true in 1988. Earlier this same year I had won the All India Sangam Kala Group Award for Ghazals.
