Tuesday Adda @ Indie Adda 18.9.18 Kishor Kumar

I love very few songs of Kishor Kumar, honestly, he is too lighthearted for me, I rather prefer singers who sing through their heart! He was the playful child on microphone when he sings that type of songs I love them quite often, songs like “Hum to mohabbat karega” or “Panch rupaiya bara ana”, or some of his romantic songs are fantastic too! Quite a handful actually! I quite like his “mere naina sawan bhado”, “O hansini” and handful of other romantic songs.

But when it comes to serious songs- they just don’t come out! Excluding a few haunting melodies, one or two in my dictionary. Actually one of my favorite morbid songs is sung by him, “Zindagi ke safar me guzar jate hain jo muqam”. But if you give me the choice I will rather hear him singing “Jay jay shiv Shankar” from the same movie!

He too merrily sang in both Bengali and Hindi and in both regions he has left a huge number of ardent admirers. Quite an enviable number of blind fans too!

Your views please!

Tuesday Adda @ Indie Adda 11.9.18 Mukesh

Mukesh was gifted with a voice that will go straight for your heart. He was not much of a trained singer like Manna Dey or Md. Rafi, his strength was his sincerity.

He mostly sang songs with great lyrics and depth, songs that will aim for your heart not ears. I have quite adored this singer because of his sincerity, which shines through his voice.

If I start listing his songs that I adore the list won’t stop real soon. There are one too many that are my favorite. He is sort of like Md. Rafi in that regard in my dictionary. Still one of my favorites is “Chandan sa badan”, another is “Sajan re jhooth mat bolo”.

Don’t forget to share your views on this amazing singer.

Tuesday Adda @ Indie Adda 4.9.18 R.D. Burman

These two Burmans are very much related. S.D. Burman was R.D. Burman’s father. Just like the sons of many legends he was blessed with inherent talent I think. But he picked up an absolutely different style of music from his legendary father and became a legend himself! Instead of blending folk music in his songs he blended western music. If you hear his songs you will clearly feel the tempo of western music.

Very often he blended quite distinct western music in his songs, like Italian lines in his superhit song “Do labzon kee hai dil kee kahani” or when you hear “chura liya hai tumne” you will feel clearly that its root lies in Western music.

Just like father he was an awesome singer too, but he experimented with his voice too. Just listen to his songs you will know, that he loved playing with his voice. He too was quite a famous singer in both Bengali and Hindi.

My favorite of his songs (sung by him) is “Mehbooba Mehbooba” from sholay. In Bengali, well I think “aye ajagar aschhe tedre”.

Don’t forget to share your views after hearing him.

Agnikorak is a book dedicated to illustrated poetry, at present only short forms or formless ones, like Haiku, Senru, Seven, Seventeen, Quatrain, later I may add bigger poems and illustrations. Don’t be misguided by the names of my books, their names are Indian (Sanskrit/Hindi/Bengali) but the books are almost 99% English. If there is something vernacular in them that is with English Translation.

Hope these books created with lot of love and enthusiasm will win your heart and make them successful! If you have any suggestions drop me a line, my contact details are included in end of every book.

These books don’t follow any specific genres, if/when they will I will share that in the description.

Enjoy!

Tuesday Adda @ Indie Adda 28.8.18 S.D. Burman

The man with magical voice and awesome sense of music= legendary music director and singer S.D. Burman. His music was magical. He was one of the best folk singers of his time, that is he did not sang the actual folk songs, gave their tunes to songs and sang them in a voice very befitting for folk songs. He had the rustic voice folk singers are famous for in India.

He has blessed both Hindi and Bengali music lovers with priceless gems some in his voice and others in voices of legends.

He sang both Bengali and Hindi songs with equal expertise, you will have to hear him to appreciate him!

He is one of my forever favorite singers and favorite music directors.
