Manna Dey: the last Titan’s curtain call

Benguluru: The sonorous voice of Indian screen, Manna Dey, was stilled in the wee hours today. He was 94. Prabodh Chandra Dey {b. 1919} endearingly called ‘Manna’ enriched our lives with the ambrosia that surged from his divine throat. The hopelessly romantic “Manasa Maine Varoo” from ‘Chemmeen’ will linger forever in Malayalee hearts, as will “Chemba Chemba” sung with P Jayachandran & chorus in ‘Nellu’. Dadasaheb Phalke, Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri honours came his way. His wife Sulochana Kumaran from Kannur died two years back and is survived by their daughters Shuroma and Sumita. In 7 decades, the last Titan of song sang around 3,500 songs in 16 Indian languages.
