A Song

A few minutes ago, I was talking to my wife who is visiting Calcutta. While we were speaking, I could hear a Bengali song playing in the background, on FM. It was sung by Asha Bhosle, and I was so captivated that I looked for it. Here it is:

I swear by that credo too. Nothing like it.

Hi,
Wish you a belated Happy Birthday and a memorable New Year ahead. Continue entertaining us with your highly engaging writing.
Btw, a friend of mine was recently telling me (apart from various other Kishore stories) how Kishore Kumar agreed to sing a morbid song like “Tomar Barir Shamne Diye Amar Maron Jatra Jedin
Hobe” (“The day my funeral procession passes by your house”) despite having
suffered a massive heart attack and despite the song being turned down by Manna Dey and how Kishore da took it to great heights. My friend and I, apart from so many others i am sure, continue to wonder how a man and a voice with so much life within could ever be
stilled.

Quite unrelated to this to this, as i was writing my recent post on Smoking, I was reminded of your picture with a cigarette published in this blog.

Sorry, I meant to say information about down-loadable MP3 files, not the files themselves - it came out wrong. Hope you find the link useful anyway.
