    1. In a Bhajan Sandhya a ghazal singer is singing is quite absurd .
      Since I knew him for the last 10 years, he has been rendering only Bhajan Sangeet in Mumbai and else where,but how come he became Ghajal singer I just can't understand.His guruji is Bhajan Samrat Anup Jalota.His albums are of only Bhajan Sangeet,not Ghajal.

    2. In response to the comment of Reboti uncle, thanks for the error you have pointed out on the news about the Sushant's identification and the error happened un-intentionaly, the word "Bhajan"- before "Ghazal singer" just dropped while editing and uploading the news.

      It is true that Shri Sushanta is basically a Bhajan Singer. Now, as he had also started singing famous Ghazals of Anup Jalota, Ghulam Ali, Medhi Hassan and had performed many programmes on Ghazals in Bangladesh and India in a appreciable manner. So, now we can address him also as a BHAJAN AND GHAZAL SINGER. His next desire and plan is to release his Ghazal albums in Bishnupriya Manipuri and Hindi language. All the music lovers should encourage him to sing Ghazals too along with Bhajans also and give him opportunity to come up with his songs with variety.

    The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

    By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to
