Q.

This is really strange! A pop singer died at the age of about 50 and a hype was there in forum.. Gangubai Hanagal.. A legendary singer passed away and there is nothing much on forum.. Are we aware of our culture?

She died on 21st july.she was singer with deep and power ful voice of indian classic music of khayal genre.
definately most of all have no interest in classic music and more indian know/heard about MJ than gangubai.

This is the bitter truth of the present era. I must admit that I hardly knew who Gangubai Hanagal was. Our media never highlighted her achievements like those of the International Pop Singer.

If we are proud of our culture we would not imitate west blindly. who need indian classical music. Even if we donno the meaning and feeling of MJs song, we will try to show the we are enjoying since MJ is from USA. When Gangu bhai passed away it was a small caption in news paper. Abt MJ media sais worls is wheeping. it just mean that am (Kurian) is not in this world as i didnt feel anything abt Pop kings death.
