Sorry to AGAIN be the bearer of bad news but....

Today I heard from fellow forumite Szabi, that his guruma's guru has passed away. His name was Pt Bimlendu Mukerjee, father of the great Pt Buddhditya Mukerjee. Born 1925.
No more details as yet but will find out more later.

Secondly & just 2 days BEFORE Pt Rajbhan Singh left us, Ustad Shahid Parvez's mother passed on too.

Haven't had any confirmations yet. Anyone know any more?????

That's so terrible, I hope everything goes as well as it can Inshallah. What is with all of these pandits and ustads dying recently? And relatives to them as well. It's not right! Ah well what can you do except pray...

Prof. Sanjoy Bandyopadhyay had confirmed this news.

Acharya Bimalendu has certainly left this world a better place with his involvement in music, among other things. His legacy is now in the hands of his shishya-jana that span several decades -- Buddhaditya Mukherjee, Prof. Sanjoy Badyopadhyay, Anupama Bhagwat, Rajeev Janardhan, etc. to name a few.

To read more about him, see -- http://www.anupama.org/myguru.htm.

God bless him!
