Rahul Dev Burman was born on June 27, 1939. He passed away at the age of 54 in 1994.
Known for his knack for experimenting with sounds, Burman -- affectionately called Pancham Da -- is best known for his evergreen songs like “Tum se milke aisa laga”, “Tere bina zindagi se koi shikwa”, “Yaadon ki baraat”, “Mehbooba mehbooba” and “Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko”.
Son of late music composer S.D. Burman, Pancham Da gave legendary singers Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle some of the best tunes to lend their voices to.
To celebrate his 77th birth anniversary, Google honoured him with a doodle on its homepage. (See the Google Doodle here)
