Among them are Swar Sadhana Academy of Indian Music Principal and Director Sandhya Badakere and Ravi Shetty of Ravi Shetty of ‘Ravi Shetty Concepts.’ While Ms Badakere is a teacher, singer and stage artiste, Mr Shetty is a Radio Programme Presenter, Singer and stage artiste. Both therefore understand the vicissitudes of audiences and accordingly organise programmes.

He composed music for more than 100 movies in Hindi and Bengali and each of them was a tribute to the ears and soul.

Some of his classics include ‘Kora Kagaz Tha Yeh Man Mera’, ‘Chanda Hain Tu Mera Suraj Hain Tu’ and ‘Badi Sooni Sooni.’ Royal Family Burman has a Royal ancestry. His father, Nabadwipchandra Dev Burman was from the Royal family of Tripura while his mother was from the Royal family of Manipur. Bengal’s revolutionary poet Kazi Nazrul Islam was a close acquaintance of his family. He would stay with the Burmans in their Comilla residence. Burman has also sung four songs composed by Nazrul. In the late 1920s, Burman worked as a radio singer at Calcutta Radio Station. His first record (that was the pre-album era) came out for Hindustan Records in 1932. Prior to becoming a composer, ‘Karta’ (his nickname in the music industry) had sung 14 Hindi and 13 Bengali film songs.
