Music maestro Bhupen Hazarika dies in Mumbai

MUMBAI/NEW DELHI: Music maestro Bhupen Hazarika passed away in a Mumbai hospital on Saturday, a hospital spokesperson said.

"It was a multi-organ failure. The end came around 4.30 pm," Jayanta Saha, chief PRO at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital, said.

Bhupen Hazarika was suffering from respiratory and kidney failure. His condition had detoriated significantly in the last few days. His long-time companion and filmmaker Kalpana Lajmi was beside him when he died.

Bhupen Hazarika's health deteriorated on October 23 after he developed pneumonia. He had to undergo a minor surgery whereby doctors placed a food pipe into his system.

The 86-year-old Dada Saheb Phalke Award winner was undergoing treatment at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital since June 29 after he complained of breathlessness. Ever since he has been confined to his hospital bed.

Perhaps the only living balladeer in the country, composing his own lyrics and music, Hazarika lent his voice to the film " Gandhi To Hitler", where he sang Mahatma Gandhi's favourite bhajan 'Vaishnav jan'.

Bhupen Hazarika, who has a genius for weaving a magical tapestry out of traditional Assamese music and lyrics, is regarded as one of the greatest living cultural communicators of South Asia. He has been a poet, journalist, singer, lyricist, musician, filmmaker and writer.

The 'wanderer'

Bhupen Hazarika, the 'bard of Brahmaputra' whose ability to weave magic out of traditional Assamese music gave us songs like 'Dil hoom hoom kare' and 'O Ganga behti ho', swayed and inspired millions across generations with the power and passion of his voice.

A poet, music composer, singer, actor, journalist, author and filmmaker, the self-proclaimed 'jajabor' (wanderer) took the rich folk heritage of Assam and interpreted it beautifully for the world through his songs.

With his death, the country has lost not only one of its few balladeers but also one of its greatest cultural icons, cherished in Dhaka as much as in Guwahati.

Born in 1926 in Sadiya into a family of teachers, the academically-talented Hazarika completed his basic education from Guwahati in 1942, BA from Banaras Hindu University in 1944 and MA (Pol Sc) in 1946. He did his PhD in Mass Communication from Columbia University. He also received the Lisle Fellowship from Chicago University, US to study the use of educational project development through cinema.

During his stay in the US, he met the legendary black singer Paul Robeson, whose famous number 'Old man river' was successfully transformed to the megahit 'Bistirno parore' ('O Ganga behti ho' in Hindi), a virtual anthem for generations of pro-Left activists.

In an interview to a national daily many years ago, he attributed his singing to tribal music.

"As a child, I grew up listening to tribal music - its rhythm saw me developing an inclination towards singing. Perhaps, I inherited my singing skills from my mother, who sang lullabies to me. In fact, I have used one of my mother's lullabies in 'Rudali'," the Dadasaheb Phalke winner had said.

He sang his first song 'Biswa nijoy nojowan' (in the second Assamese film "Indramalati") in 1939 at the age of 12.

Well he sure did die yesterday, not 2 years ago. I just linked this as I still remember the icon who got famous on a lifted song and probably hoped not many people discover it.

And you forgot the Assamese line in the beginning
