Anupam Sinha | 1st Feb 2024
There is something about creative artists that, they seem to spellbind the audiences in whatever they do. Anupam Sinha was no different. A comic book artist and writer, with sections of media crediting him for revolutionizing Indian comics with his work at Raj Comics. He is credited as the creator of the superhero - "Super Commando Dhruva"
The songs he presented, he said, had great memories for him and evoked a sense of nostalgia in him whenever he heard them, though there were no particular incidents that he connected to these songs. Something he mentioned, clearly stuck a chord with most listeners since they had experienced the same situation when growing up. Anupam mentioned about how in his childhood, there was no radio in their house, and he would hear songs wafting through the neighbor's radio. What's difficult to access or acquire is cherished the most, he said while introducing the songs and no truer words have been spoken. He cherishes some of the songs that he had chosen to play tonight as they were accessed with great difficulty and these songs have got themselves imprinted in his mind forever.
Eight of the Ten songs had lyrics referring to romance, love and beloved. Though Anupam did not mention it, these songs probably were heard during his youth and hence the affinity for them is understandable.
Anupam was engrossing and his song selection were special. My only peeve - would have loved to hear him speak more. The artist in him remained hidden and maybe he chose to keep it that way!!
Music listening is a passion and out of this passion was born Nostalgiaana. We (along with Shankar Iyer) present radio style shows since April 2020

• I hope to review it objectively and not just make this an attempt at absolute unquestioned veneration.
