Today marks the 77th anniversary of the iconic music maestro R D Burman (Rahul Dev Burman), popularly known as ‘Panchamda'. Needless to say he has charmed the golden era with host of songs. Eminent Bollywood director Raj N. Sippy, who directed the landmark musical SATTE PE SATTA zestfully observes that this is the ‘satte pe satta' year of Pancham-da's musical journey.


Besides a large number of ‘live' R D Burman Memorial concerts being convened all over India during last week, a special ‘PanchaMemoirs' book titled  ‘R D Burmania' authored by eminent award-winning senior showbiz journalist Chaitanya Padukone, who shared a close rapport with Panchamda, for nearly ten years, is being launched initially thru the digital medium.

Besides the fascinating ‘memoirs' the book also includes a collection of  rare, startling vintage RDB photographs as also exclusive personal tributes given by a galaxy of luminaries including Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar, A R Rahman,  Asha Bhosle, Rishi Kapoor, Babul Supriyo, Shekhar Kapur, Zeenat Aman,   Pyarelal, and Vidya Balan. They have all shared their Burman-centric sentiments. To add to this, in his foreword for this book, ‘showman' director Sanjay Leela Bhansali (BAJIRAO MASTANI) has confided, regarding his ‘addiction' to certain RDB songs, revealing his personal experiences with RDB during the song-sitting of 1942-A Love Story.
