R D Burman: The man, The music

I have been hearing a lot about this book since quite a long but dint get time to get hold of this masterpiece by Anirudha Bhattacharya and Balaji Vittal.

When I first heard that it’s about music I refrained myself buying it because I am not a big fan of music. But when my friends read it and applauded the great work put in by writers to compile this book, I thought of to give myself a chance to read a book on music too. (Though this doesnt come under my genre). Ahh what a read it was, I was so engrossed in that that I dint hold other book before I completed this.

This book is not just about the music done by the great man but how life was in the days gone by. It gives us a lesson that life is not only about success but to fight in tough times and come out with flying colors.

It gives series of events and incidents on RD's life, how he spent his childhood, how he was molded into music, his behavior, and later years of his life.

One thing I must admire about the book is that the amount of extensive research done by the writers. They have tried to cover every aspect of human life with the particular events associated with this music maestro.

I had a great time reading this book and learning about life.
This is the first book which I got from the man himself and how could I miss to take his autograph.

Thanks Anirudha Da!
