Manna Dey 90

Dear Mr.Shaji

We are writing to you for a special reason. The greatest Indian playback singers of all time, Manna Dey, The Legend will turn 90 on 1st May, 2009. As we all know, he has dedicated his entire life to music. To him music is God and the sole source of inspiration and knowledge.

Manna Da is a resident of Bangalore, and we as Bangaloreans wish to felicitate him on this momentous occasion. He would like to celebrate this milestone through the one thing that means the most to him – performing a solo concert down memory lane. A tribute to everyone in his life who have been special. His family, friends & fans!

A commemorative souvenir will be released on the occasion to mark the historic moment. This collector’s item will contain rare photographs from Manna Dey’s personal photo album, related quotes and articles of famous personalities, interesting anecdotes from his autobiography ‘Memories come alive’, etc.

We have found your excellent article named MANNA DEY – The Last Singer of an Era . We make a humble request to you to give us permission to publish this article in the souvenir and also request you to kindly attend the felicitation programme. As the author of the article, we would also like to carry a photograph of yours with Manna Da in the souvenir.

Looking forward to your consent, we remain.

Yours truly
