The most versatile singer India has ever produced, sang each song with such distinction, that left the listeners spellbound. The effortless transition across the entire range without any strand of strain, flawless emoting made him the king of playback singing... No doubt his humility, unassuming attitude, soft spoken nature, and reverence for mankind produced such a voice which came direct from heart... It's true that music is about emotion and not only technicalities, and he was master of both, in melody, modulation, octave range, variety, versatility, universality, lyric-expression, characterization, etc etc--the list goes on and on! I'm also positive that the more time passes bye the more precious and rare his voice will become. He will be the Van Goff, the Picasso, the Bach from the sub-continent! There will be a lot of research done and many Ph. D's acquired about him. He is the Mount Everest in human voice! And there is only one Mr. Everest! An endless, bottomless ocean of music and melody!
