Eso Priyo Aro Kachhe
by Sudhin Das
Sudhin Das (1930 to 2017) was an Indian-born Bangladeshi 'Nazrul Sangeet' musician and teacher. Sudhin Das was born on April 30th 1930 in Bagichagaon, Comilla, Bengal, India (now independent Bangladesh). He started learning music at the Sangeet Shikhharthee Sammilan in Comilla, which had been established as a music school by his elder brother Suren in 1942, and he was then enlisted as a musician by 'Radio Pakistan' while still a college student in 1948. In 1985, after finally finishing his own long period of learning in the 'Nazrul Sangeet' genre, he moved to Dhaka, joining the Nazrul Sangeet Promanikoron Board at the city's Nazrul Institute, where he taught the musical discipline to their young artists. Throughout his career there, he published 33 volumes of "authentic" 'Nazrul Sangeet' 'swaralipi', and married Nilima Das, also an artist of 'Nazrul Sangeet' and who had received the prestigious "Nazrul Padak" award during her career, as well as a "Channel I Lifetime Achievement" award. (His nephew Alaka Das and niece Manas Kumar Das are also 'Nazrul Sangeet' artists.) His own awards included the "Shaheed Altaf Mahmood Memorial Gold Medal" in 1985, the "Ekushey Padak" in 1988 and finally his personal "Nazrul Padak" award, which was given him in 1999. Other very notable achievements came over time, with the gifts of the "Churulia Nazrul Academy Nazrul Award", the "Nasiruddin Gold Medal" and the "Zebunnessa-Mahbubullah Trust Gold Medal". Sudhin Das died from age-related complications at the Apollo Hospital in Dhaka on June 27th 2017, aged 87. He is survived by his wife Nilima and one daughter (his only son, guitarist/songwriter Niloy Das, passed away in 2006).

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away every year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
