Vaikundarajan On R.D. Burman And His Legacy

20 years ago, India lost one of the most charismatic music directors, R.D. Burman. “His songs appealed to a whole generation then and it appeals to the generation now. R.D. Burman composed songs that could go on forever,” says Vaikundarajan.

Paying a tribute to the genius musician, Google celebrated R.D. Burman’s 77th birth anniversary with a doodle on its India homepage. He was popularly known as Panchamda and was the first musician to revolutionize music industry by infusing western style.

“Perhaps the most iconic era of music industry was the early seventies when R.D. Burman and Kishore Kumar came together to give us a string of hit songs,” recollects Vaikundarajan.

Every legacy begins with naysayers and critics. It was no different for R.D. Burman. Initially, he was criticized for bringing in western influences in several movies. He was known to use new instruments and experimented with his music. “His sheer genius in the field of music has left behind songs that have been fresh in public memory for over three decades,” says Vaikundarajan.

Burman’s affection towards common people is known through a popular story. “R.D. Burman would seek feedback on his songs from liftmen and watchmen. He would often sit with them and ask if they liked his song,” informs Vaikundarajan.

His legacy will continue for decades to come and his songs will inspire a new generation in future.
