Bhupen Hazarika: As I Knew Him
We all know Bhupen Hazarika as a singer-composer, poet and lyricist non-pariel. What about the man behind the legend? Told through the lens of Kalpana Lajmi, Bhupen Hazarika: As I knew Him is a free-flowing memoir, moving back and forth across time, defying description, much like the love story it narrates. It is the story of a unique bond, of the coming together of two talented artistes, of a man who used his art as an instrument of social change, who was charismatic and passionate, and a woman, a fierce feminist, who has never cared much about societal norms, and yet who could never turn away from him despite his mercurial ways, his unreasonable tantrums and his unwillingness to recognize her as a companion.
