Music by Kalyan

This is by old friend Kalyan Mukherjea whom I knew from 1970 until his death in 2010. I never listened to his music when he was alive; it was either mathematics or gossip. Off and on there was tension since he oozed aristocracy and I was not keen about aristocrats. After 1995, he was partially paralyzed and was blind towards the end. I used to visit him in Kolkata, drink with him, light cigarettes and pass on to him and burnt his hand a couple of times. Altogether a wise man who encouraged many younger people in mathematics and music.
