Some timeless songs of Jagjit Kaur

I would have written on Jagjit Kaur at some uncertain time in future. That I am doing it now owes it to my friend Subodh Agrawal, a regular visitor to my blog. His glowing reference to Jagjit Kaur in my last blog on Subir Sen touched a chord in me – I am also a huge fan of her songs. I also realized this was the right time when I was on minor singers like Kamal Barot and Subir Sen. In fact I feel very awkward to describe them as ‘minor’ singers, just because they did not sing too many songs. I would describe her more appropriately as a ‘niche’ singer, whose few songs have made her immortal.

Mike Silverman dies at 90; touted himself as

The son of a sweatshop tailor, he started life living above a pickle shop in the Bronx and ended it owning a Cape Cod-style home on a stretch of Malibu called Billionaire's Beach. April 25, 2010|By Valerie J. Nelson, Los Angeles Times For decades, Mike Silverman touted himself as "the Realtor to the stars," drawing swoons from the news media here and abroad both for his movie-star clientele and his movie-star looks. In his case, the nickname wasn't just a publicist's creation but a reflection of star-studded fact. He had catered to a seemingly endless string of A-list celebrities that started, according to Silverman, when he sold Frank Sinatra's house to Cary Grant.
