Music & Lyrics: Salil Choudhury Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Here is a Salil Choudhuri classic, sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Bengali. Not satisfied with one story, I tried to weave two. The visuals to grace my video include, 1. Maharani Gayatri Devi, (born in Coochbehar, West Bengal) much above the words of beauty & grace 2. Suchitra Sen, the quintessential beauty & 3. Raja Ravi Verma's paintings. Ravi Verma, because it is Kerala where Salil da ruled his musical kingdom like an uncrowned emperor.
This one is dedicated to my very good friend Sankaran, who enlightened me about Salil da's southern sojourns in God's Own Country.
Hey, how come this is there in a channel which is supposed to be dedicated to Maestro Ilaiyaraja? Well, the reason is the ethereal guitar interludes that you hear in this immortal song are strummed by Maestro Ilaiyaraja, who was a guitarist in Salil da's musicians then!
Some of the visuals in the first minute are from the place where I was previously working.
