Only because we really don’t know how to respect our heroes. The man, the voice, the legend whom we all love so much and have so many memories. So many moments of life would have been so difficult if he wasn’t with us. Something for every occasion, for every one. At many times, when life seems impossible, I close my eyes and let his voice do the rest. They say, its magic, pure bliss. And it would be the same for generations to come. Can you imagine a world without the voice of Kishore Kumar?

But we still dont know how to give due respect to his memories, his life, his contribution to our life. 13 October is Kishoreda’s death anniversary. And as we rewind, it feels so pathetic that we dont even have a memorial for him. Few years back the MP Government made an announcement for the same, but its still not complete. Local people have also donated whatever they could but then its sarkari. Whatever work has happened there, people are more interested in flashing their names. And its a long list.

His home Gauri Kunj (Khandwa) still remains in pathetic condition. Some work has been done to restore it but its almost zilch. Take a look at the pics. We dont need to say more!

(There are two set of pics. First five rows are of his house. Next five rows of the memorial in the making. )

And here is a song for the occasion. Click on the play button, close your eyes and let the voice do the rest.

  1. Few years back I did visit these places in Khandwa when I was there to cover a film shoot and it was pathetic then and I can imagine the condition now….Its sad and all we can do is write comments after comments…people who are supposed to do the real job are dozing off with their fat pay cheque…sorry state of affairs…As KK’s fan we can continue humming and listening to all his songs and pass it on to generation after generation…Love you KK. U R THE BEST…LiVe On

    Pathetic!.. This is National Heritage. Kishore Kumar touched the chords of hearts of millions and even continues to do after 20 years of his death. He was no less than political leaders in terms of impact on the society. It is irony that Mayawati is spending millions on her statues while we can not even respect one of our greatest National Heroes post independence!

    Sad state of affairs:(
