Sameer and Snehal, wanted to give local singing talents a platform to show case their talent. In fact it was this thought, which led to the inception of the immensely popular show, Gaata Rahe Mera Dil . And of course Sameer’s fluid style adds to the zing. Sameer seamlessly switches between Hindi, English and Urdu, an aspect that immensely appeals to the listeners; what better way than this, to feel the whiff of nostalgia and the feel of home one has left behind i.e. apna desh.
 The Journey so Far : 
 More than 250 plus singers has thus far been featured on the show. Feedback for the featured singers has come from music stalwarts like Shaan, Shankar Mahadevan, Talat Aziz and others. Some exceptional singers have even received mementos from Talat Aziz during his recent show in the Bay Area. Some GRMD singers were lucky to meet Shankar Mahadevan, when he visited in April 2011.
Apart from featuring home grown-local talent, Sameer has interviewed some well-known Bollywood celebrities such as Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and others. In case you would like to take a peek into the celeb list, click on to listen to those immensely popular interviews. The feather-in-the cap is certainly the interview with none other than Ameen Sayani by Sameer himself, which has been re-broadcasted several times, on popular demand.
There is even a TV format of the show, which is telecast on the local TV channel Sitaarre TV on KTSF 26.
Soaring in-the-heaven-moment for GMRD
Not one, there are two such special moments. They are..
• Partnering with Shankar Mahadevan Academy (SMA) for over six months and carrying the SMA branding with inputs from none other than Shankar himself. The high point was, when on numerous occasions, Shankar has called into the show, and even professed his fondness for the show.
 • Conducting a gala event in Dec 2011 where top singers of 2010 to 2011 were given awards in 10 different award categories. Shaan, Anandji Bhai (of kalyan ji Anand Ji), Shankar Mahadevan and Talat Aziz, were the esteemed judges at the event. The show was immensely appreciated and a huge hit.
So as the next line of the famous Kishore number ‘Gata rahe mera dil’ goes, make the show, ‘apni manzil’, and tune into Radio Zindagi 1550AM, any Wednesday, between 7PM to 8PM.
