New Delhi, April 24 (IANS) Legendary Shamshad Begum's "Kabhi aar kabhi paar" and "Leke pehla pehla pyaar" still spread the same magic that the songs used to when she sang them more than five decades ago.

A singer with many hits, Shamshad Begum bid adieu to the world Tuesday, but her songs will keep her alive in the hearts of music lovers. She was 94.
