Light of the Universe

Essays on Hindustani Film Music


 Starting with the premise that Hindustani cine-song and cine-music has been the main narrative, rather than a pleasant diversion, for the movie-loving public, the author has undertaken a journey into the enchanting world of singers, musicians, lyricists and assessed their contribution as powerful creators of popular culture, as interpreters of the subcontinental ethos, people’s aspirations and desires, and as bold painters on the canvas of time. They capture the very processes of history and struggles within cultures that have shaped our lives in last one century.
