Dol Dol Doloni - An Instrumental Music of a Bangla Folk Song

My instrumental rendition of a Bangla folk song. Many singers sang this song including Abdul Alim, Alamgir and Ayub Bachchu.

Remembering Robin Williams

Robin Williams' sudden death today I find to be disheartening. One actor amongst many he was but curved his unique place by his natural talent in acting that felt so genuine and sincere. What has shocked me more is the eerie resemblance of his demise with the theme of an unforgettable movie of 90s call What Dreams May Come.

Pre Netflix era, in now defunct Blockbusters and other movie rental places I used to search for movies that had Robin Williams. So many remarkable movies he was in, making us cry and laugh, directing us questioning our own bigotry and perhaps stoking the subdued goodness. He was there with his larger than life laughter, poetic soliloquies, as an inspiring doctor in Patch Adams or as a loving father in Mrs. Doubtfire, as a therapist in The Good Will Hunting and an unorthodox poetry professor in The Dead Poet Society. Robin Williams gave it all portraying these and many other characters, making them part of our life and consciousness

Rest in peace Robin Williams…

No one took my pulse that day but I can assure you it was racing and increasing in every second. The dreadful thoughts flooded my mind. Was he okay? Would he breathe? I only knew my son for a few minutes and the normal worries of a parent has already started. And then a tiny voice let the world hear his first cry. So low the voice was that I could ha…
