27th June marks the 79th birth anniversary of one of the country’s most loved music directors, RD Burman. He was a legend and people still admire him. Pancham Da, as he was fondly known among his fans, gave Bollywood some really beautiful melodies.

He entered the music industry in the 1950s with the great expectations one would have from the son of Sachin Dev Burman. It is said he got the name ‘Pancham’ as he used to cry in five different notes when he was a child. He learned his art from masters like Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and Ashish Khan and made music that the country had never heard before. We definitely can’t compare this generation music to old ones because old is gold. Even today’s young generation also love his songs. RD Burman songs are soul enriching.
