I did NOT forget Madam Noor Jehan’s birthday, which was September 21 (when she would have turned 93). Unfortunately, though, time did not permit me to write a solid post for it this year and, besides, I think the series of full Noor Jehan birthday posts in this blog may have run its course. But I think those who have been following the Noor Jehan birthday posts for the past decade would agree that I have probably posted enough stuff! (Unless you think there can never be enough stuff when it comes to posting about Noor Jehan – an opinion that I would fully respect.)
For those who do not know about the series – or those who know but would like to look at it again – please go to last year’s post, which includes links that will take you to prior Noor Jehan posts (including the post from 2015 that includes links to all the others going back to 2009).
Meanwhile, my mind has been going in other directions, and I hope to have something interesting and comprehensive up fairly soon – on a subject related to other things that I have been writing about in recent months. (That is the plan, at any rate.)
But rest assured that I will never forget the birth anniversary of Noor Jehan, the all-time greatest singing star!
[Note written the following year: No, I never will forget Noor Jehan’s birth anniversary, but I decided not to continue the series (which pretty much ended in 2018, since this post merely briefly refers to prior ones). Nonetheless, I like to think that I have posted enough material for the occasion at this point. :) ]

Thank you for the encouragement, Madhu. :)
