eBook keeps music maestro alive

Two years have passed since Dr Bhupen Hazarika shuffled off his mortal coils. But the dead music maestro is still living in the minds and hearts of millions of people. His baritone voice continues to enjoy a separate degree of veneration. This was more or less of what the speakers told at a function in Guwahati on Saturday where social activist Deven Dutta released an eBook dealing with Dr Hazarika’s golden songs.  The English version, the first of its kind in eBook format by Pronami Bhattacharyya titled “Let My Songs Be, A Door To A New Dawn” drew appreciation from several quarters.
