The legend of Kishore Kumar, Aabhas Kumar Ganguly, died of a heart attack. Yet the legend of Kishore still lives on, please feel free to post any memories of him and some songs which u particularly enjoyed. whether it be the annoying songs ur parents used to play on tape in the car for the younger ones, or old memories by the lucky older posters here, who were old enough to remember him and hear him when he was alive.

for some info on him heres a good link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kishore_Kumar

RIP KISHORE DA!!

Yes, Kishore Kumar was a legend, n until recent days id lissened to his music bu never took interest! Thnx to a certain BengaliPrince, who just happens to be a great fan, i nw no the true greatness of his music!

My most favourite song of his has to be Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas...absolutely wicked song, to die for! Beutiful lyrics, complimented by his voice..
n then..Rui Katla, this song deserves an award! whether u like it for the wicked dance moves, to stare at mithuns hair or to watch him do his hip thing over n over again, it will definitely bring a smile to ur face!

I am a huge fan of his hindi songs mainly because they usually have superb lyrics and a great feel to it. I have not listened to too many bengali ones though. His genre of songs is what attracts me besides Ghazals. He rocks big time. So many memories attached with his songs.

My favourite singer. After he died I felt very sad....although I didn't ever see him face to face, he was not my relative or anything... but I felt like I lost someone special from the world.

Great voice ..... still love his songs.

Thank you prince bro for reminding..... Kishore Kumar Ganguly was a Legend. There will never ever be someone like him ever again. For a person who never learned any raagas or had any training in music....such a phenomenon singer.

Prince, Kishore Kumar's son.... Amit Kumar is coming for a concert in Houston this coming weekend for Durga Pujo!!!

Since Padosan is active here lately start with that. "Padosan" (Pasher bari).

Famous song in it "mere samney wali khidki may ...." - Comedy movie. Kisore, Sunil Dutt (main actor), Saira banu (then Bombshell). Must see old movies.

No one stole anybody. She gave herself up after being very impressed. And yes she came down to our side of Niagara. History will repeat itself beware. Hope you have a daughter (when you have one). My son already has a good teacher.
