I watched Nupur Bordoloi on stage sometime in 2001. He was on a one show reunion with Dorian Platonic, which had Bulbul Das on bass, Hriday Goswami on vocals, Rajib Borbhuyan on guitar and mr. preetam on drums. Mr. bordoloi left the crowd awestruck with his flamboyance, playing his keyboard with his feet, elbow, tongue, teeth....and fingers of course. i became a fan eversince. i always wished he would get well soon. two persons i admired a lot took the road to heaven, nupur da and Seelabhadra, the noted author. it's a helpless moment as an assamese....i pray our soil can give birth to talents like these in the future. in the meantime, their memory remains.

This is very sad. At least at a time when there is a dearth of people who really have the courage to be different and do something new in the music. In Nupur Bordoloi, we have always found a persona who would keep the audience at the at edge of their seats. The way with which he carried himself on the stage and his brilliance with the keys remains immortal. Sometimes, it is a difficult time.

This is sad to know that Nupur is no more. Just now, I came to know through this website. I'd seen him playing a decade back in a Bihu function. I knew about his presence in Dorian Platonic through Rajib Borbhuyan - Lead guitarist when I was learning guitar. The music world has a great keyboardist & musician. He's a rare talent. Rest in Peace, Nupur.

May be it was during 2006 or 2007, I didn't remember,I saw him playing as a lady sang along some song in a interview-like program on NE TV. This was the first time I saw him playing and didn't know who he was at that time. He played so wonderful that I just gave him a standing ovation before the TV. He was such a great keyboardist and haven't seen any player playing live like him till date. To me he was one of the best keyboardist in the world. Dear Nupul, you are great and wonderful! I will never forget that morning I first saw you.

today on NETV there was a short program- tribute to late nupur bordoloi which reminded me of my very old friend. whom i met in 1991 as we've invited Dorian Platonic  to Naharlagun,Arunachal Pradesh to perform a show.prior to that I've heard about him in1988 at Kohima, Nagaland that there is a keyboard player who can play throwing the keyboard backward, with his toung, elbows etc.so we've invited Dorian Platonic to naharlagun where they (including Rajiv Barua on guitar, Pritam on drums and hriday as a vocalist performed so well esp. nupur with his unique way of playing keyboard. perfomed many numbers. he was such a soft spoken person. may he come back to earth as a human being again and show his unique way of keyboard playing to the whole world.May his soul rest in peace till then.
