Tribute to R D Burman

Born - 27 June 1939

Achievements - R.D. Burman is considered the greatest of all music composers the Indian film industry's ever had. His musical brilliance is evident from the fact that the famous song 'Sar jo tera chakraaye' in Guru Dutt's film, Pyaasa was composed by him as a child. He has belted out some of the jazziest hits in the history of Bollywood music.

Rahul Dev Burman, who is more famous by the name of R.D. Burman, is considered the greatest of all music composers the Indian film industry's ever had. His entry into Bollywood saw the revolutionization of the way music was being composed here. Son of singer and music composer, Sachin Dev Burman and second husband of playback singer, Asha Bhosle, RD Burman is credited for injecting a fresh style and technique into the singing of yesteryears Hindi songs. Burman's melodious songs lack parallel even today.

The biography of RD Burman continues here. Rahul Dev Burman was lovingly called Pancham da by industry insiders and friends because during his childhood, whenever he cried, it sounded in the fifth note 'Pa' of the Indian musical scale. Little Pancham was born at Kolkata in West Bengal state. He started taking sarod lessons from Ustad Ali Akbar Khan after shifting to Mumbai. RD Burman composed his first song 'Aye meri topi palat ke aa' at the age of nine, which his father used in the film 'Funtoosh' released in the year 1956.

  1. you people are unbelievable. you claim to be such huge fanatics of r.d.burman, but at the same time you go out of your way to highlight the person most responsible and instrumental for his depression and eventual downfall. i am talking about the universally beloved BHANU GUPTA. what do you know about this man other than what he tells you about himself? most people prefer to put the entire blame on swapan chakrabarty, but how many of us know that this man is equally responsible, if not more. he is a cool customer whose right hand does not know what his left had does. my friendly advice to you is, be very very careful of him. he is using you people for his own publicity and popularity. whether you believe in what i said or not, is up to you, of course. i just did what i thought i should have done long time back.
