Braj Bhasha  made specially for poetry and music. It brings at once to the mind the great lines of Surdas  Mayya Mori Main Nahin Maakhan Khayo. The description of the Child Krishna  is so charming that no one can fail to be fascinated by it. I am not aware whether any other language has become so identified with the life-story of any great man. The flute of Mohan still echoing everywhere.  The unending song of the deeds of Lord Krishna. Mumtaz Begum was deeply influenced by the Krishna lore. She exclaimed, “Though a Moghalni, I would even agree to be a Hindustani for its sake.  Mian Ras Khan  expressed his desire saying, “If born a man, let me be among the village shepherds of Gokul; if born an animal, let me wander among the flock of Nand; if I be a stone, let me be a piece of the Govardhan which the Lord Krishna had raised against Indra and if be a bird, let me make  my nest on the trees by the side of Jamuna.

Remember—Mohe Panghat pe Nandlal Chhed gayo re from MUGHAL-E-Azam (1960). This song was composed by Shakeel Badauni, tuned to music by Naushad, singer Lata Mangeshkar and directed by K. Asif Another one : Madhuban mein Radhika Nache Re, Kohinoor (1960) composed by Shakeel Badauni, tuned to  music by Naushad, sung by Mohd.Rafi and picturised on Dilip Kumar (Yusuf ). This is the biggest tribute to real secularism.
