A word about Ameen Sayani

The man who brought  Binaca Geetmala for us has left for heavenly abode on 20 February 2024 in Mumbai.. 

Ameen Sayani  celebrated his 87th birthday  on Decmber 21.. This was also marked by a program on Rewind by one of his close associate Siraj Syed in the form of a special rewind episode Paydaan Ki Dastaan - Siraj Syed chronicled the facts but then there was fun part of picking the top 3 songs for 1957 and 1964..

Jagjit Singh was so close to my heart for so many years, yet I could not attend any of his live programs, most of the time it was the cost factor.. and at times the distances involved in travelling to the venue.. mostly the concert were pricey for a government servant like me.. 

Today on February 08 2021 I create this book dedicated to the man I loved so much, it is his eightieth Birth anniversary today. I have renamed the book from the prolog questionnaire Know Your India that was done on the golden jubilee of Indian Independence
