Hardly a situation goes by when one does not see a reference to SDB or SD Burman or Sachin Karta when Hindi film music or modern Bengali songs are discussed. He was part of the DNA of these genres. What began in the early thirties of the last century continues to draw attention even today as his music had an allure and flavour that remains unprecedented. He was an institution as a composer, as a singer. Here was a master who also drew out the best from his singers, lyricists and instrumentalists and helped them excel in their craft. The S.D. Burman biography by HQ Chowdhury was first published in 2011 and commanded acclaim among Indian music and cinema books.
