      Serious nostalgia from the late 90s when I first heard this piece on the forums. Time marches on relentlessly, we are but bubbles. RIP, Nayyara Noor.

    To be honest I used to think she had already passed away. But good to know she was still alive, healthy and well taken care of. For me, her song 'watan ki mitti gawah rehna' was the most iconic song she had sung.

    إِنَّا ِلِلَّٰهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ,


      A huge piece of our childhood memory.. All elders were a big fan of her. RIP.
