R D Burman Indian Audio Film Songs DVD Pack

Mumbai, India, 20th Sep 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio USA) : It’s ironical that amongst songs created by RD Burman, Beeti Na Bitai Raina (Parichay ’72), Humen Tumse Pyaar Kitna (Kudrat ’81), Do Naina Ek Kahani (Masoom ’82) and Mera Kuchch Samaan (Ijaazat ’87) fetched Bhupinder, Lata mangeshkar, Parveen Sultaana, Aarti Mukherjee, Gulzar and Asha Bhosle the National Awards but RD Burman missed out each time.

The story almost continues when, on this occasion (National Awards 2010, Brahmanand S Siingh, has bagged the National Award for Pancham Unmixed, a film made on RD Burman … however, with a difference.

(“Awarded to Brahmanand S Siingh for an engaging compilation of the tumultuous journey of a legendary and iconic music composer of Indian Film Industry whose music lives on.”)

BrahmanandAs Brahmanand himself has posted on Facebook and other platforms, amidst accolades (that the film has kept on receiving even otherwise):

“It's interesting ... each time Panchamda's creation got a National Award, it's always others who got it for singing or lyrics ... like Gulzar saab had said once "kheer Pancham ne banaai ... aur hum sab usse khaa gaye ..." ... (I think when mera kuchch samman had gotten the National Award) ... Once again, it seems, I get the award on making a film about him but he never got one himself.

Ithaca, NY (Washington Bangla Radio USA - PRWEB) September 17, 2010: In the misty foothills of India's Himalayan mountain range, sits an isolated village called Malana.

The road brings with it promises of new opportunities and development, but it also brings the unknown. Will the Malanese be able to preserve their unique culture, or will it be swept away by the forces of globalization?
