the music director naushad is no more.
he was the father of a very close family friend. george and i took sanah to his house on eid . sanah collected a lot of eidi from everyone, but could not get naushad uncle's blessings, he was too unwell to meet visitors.
i have been watching the news, aghast that the reporters' knowledge is limited to pointing to the stars who have begun to trickle in to pay their last respect. not one channel seems to be able to do a coherent report on his body of work - they mumble and stumble if they have to go beyond baiju bawra and mughal-e-azam. they have got the usual people to give quotes- javed akhtar and mahesh bhatt. its shameful.
