Description
About the Book

It is an effort which is more than a labour of love. It is the triumph of two writers of two different generations to bring alive the magic of the music of the golden era of both music and cinema which were an integral part of entertainment once. To think of it, it is almost a super human effort to do what this father and daughter team has done. To go back into the time when music was queen and some of her most reliable men were in a mood to give music their very best is nothing but an amazing effort. To cull out the magic of these maestros, each a master of his own genre, is a feat which can only be performed by two people who are madly in love with the music which soothed the soul, stirred the heart and even moved the mind.

As I went through the pages of the tome I could only imagine the hard work put in by Mr.Bajpai and Anshula, the kind of hard work which is only a dream in today's times when books on films and music are brought out like chocolates and melt, are forgotten and fade away even before anyone has a second look at them.

I am very sure that this book will be a milestone in the history of Hindi film music. The book is embellished with some unusual and unseen photographs which speak volumes and makes one stop going ahead and keep gaping at them. The book is not just a dry collection of a number of stories. It has the kind of anecdotes, the details of songs and even the musical craftsmanship based on which they were recorded and the circumstances under which they were created. What an unbelievable feat and a feast for lovers of great music.

I strongly feel that the book should find a place in every home, in every institution and library and must be a part of the world of Hindi film music which has never been taken so seriously and sincerely"
