Today (15 august 2016) is the 69th independence day of India.

With the passage of so much time, the general knowledge of younger generation about Indian freedom struggle and independence is no longer what it used to be in the past. One study mentions that the biggest source to make people aware of our independence day are patriotic songs from movies, followed by school text books.

When I was growing up as a pre teenager in 1970s, I was into buying and reading all children’s magazines that were then published. It was in “Nandan” magazine that I read about Sitaara Devi. I did not take much interest in her nor was I aware about her except the vague information that she was a Kathak dancer. She was in her 50s at that time which was then considered old so natually I was not interested in knowing about an old lady.🙂

It has been full three years almost to the day, that the last song of this music director was posted here on this blog. After three long years, we have another post with a song composed by this maverick composer whose quality of music is exemplary, but the quality of his social interface left a lot to be desired. Uncompromising to the last, he managed to do a lot less work, than he could have. A tale of regrets all the way, for himself, and for his fans – that we were bereft of more of his creativity.
