16 June Passed, But Hemant Kumar Unheard ?
Description: June 16 happened to be the birth day of the golden-voiced Hemanta Mukherjee, globally known as Hemant Kumar.Woefully enough,the satelitte channels,especially the ones employed in televising entertaining programmes were not bothered to spare a slot at least for 5 minutes to project a note of reminiscence for one of the greatest performers in the world of film-music.The defensive hoax over this folly may sound "It is not possible to keep records of dates of birth of so many famous persons who are born to die". Good Lords! A singer and music composer like Hemant Kumar is not born to be obliviated.Even the living legend Lata Mangeshkar can not control her tears even now when the reference to "Memant Dada" comes to pass.Noteithstanding his bodily absence, Hemant's soul is very much present in his innumerable melodies.The media share the ethical liabilities to saturate glories, sedimented by the decree of time. On 16 June, thousands of snake-charmers must have played the tune"Man dole mera"
