Babu Kishan won the Best Music of India, the National Indian Award in 1981 when he was 21 years of age.
This film won the Best Film 1981 the film .
Long story, long story behind this film and the truth will be told. His mother Manju Das would have done anything for her husband Purna Das Baul, she gave up all her incredible talent and her only focus in life was her husband, beyond anybody else or anything else.
Purna Das Baul was NOT the music director or Music Composer, it is all about family emotional Blackmail.
Babu put his fathers name there because this is what his Mom wanted, hard to believe but Babu would do whatever his parents wanted. After being left at birth and then again when they finally got him in Calcutta after Nabani Das Khyapa Baul (Grandfather) passed away they put him in an orphanage. This created a deep desire in Babu to always wanted to be wanted, to be part of that family, to do anything and everything to do his best for them, even if that meant giving his life work away in the name of his father Purna Das Baul?
Music is listed as Purna Das Baul on Wikipedia, that is false and it will be changed in the future, on the original releases Krishnendu Das is listed and he of course is Babu Kishan. Babu was awarded for this movie, not Purna Das Baul.
Purna Das Baul is not a Music Composer or Music Director, he is only a singer and had to be taught to sing in Hindi because he did not speak Hindi, Babu had to spend hours and hours teaching his father and correcting him. Purna Dasji has never ever composed any music (period) he is not a composer or poet.
Purna Das Baul is a great vocalist, his talent is singing in Bengali.
Babu Kishan name listed as Krishnendu Das is listed on the original movie and music. It was later mysterious changed to his father Purna Das Baul and his Mom said, no leave it, Manju Das would do anything for her husband, even at the expense of her eldest son.
Unfortunately the sad truth is, has taken Babu a lifetime to come to terms with. When one is young and treated as a servant or second class in a family, there is a psychology or mental brain washing that is implanted which is very hard to come to terms with, these are you parents but you did not know they were your parents, but you are treated as an outsider. Your mother bribes you to call her Ma but giving you a cookie?
His Maa would say Babu you are the eldest this is your duty, to give up everything and give it to your family all finances and everything, even though they left him at birth, got you back at 8 years of age and then left him again at the Ramakrishna Mission. It is very long story and would never be told if there had not been such a lack of respect towards their eldest brother and son. The younger brother being the biggest culprit over the decades.
There is a karma and a reckoning that must happen, if you forge signatures and sell Mumbai properties behind a sons back, there is a restitution to pay. If they had not abused him, wished him so ill all the time, talked negative behind his back all the time, it would never be a problem. Babu would let it go but it is way beyond the kind of abuse any family member should ever endure.
Babu used to bring his friends (Indian Cinema) friends to his home in Calcutta and they would always say negative things to them about Babu, these friends would always tell Babu after leaving the house what was said and then say, what kind of family do you have? They would come to Mumbai, Babu would bring them as guest and they would gossip negative things to Babu's friends, and the friends would tell him and again say, what kind of a family do you have, they would say these things all around the world, while Babu would constantly send them money, they wanted a new car, he would provide, a new kitchen he would provide, birthday parties, clothing, theft of his jewellery, what they wanted they got. They would go to California and tell people (Babu's contacts) negative stories about Babu?
All around the world people would say, we tried to call you Babu and your family said, they do not know where you are? When they knew, they would take his contacts and make a mess.
It is the same with Bob Dylan, he never came to Calcutta, it is a lie by his younger brother and father. There is a whole story there too.
This is not family, this is a case of incarnating into your enemies house.
The time is now, this was all ignored because Babu was taught by his Grandma - let it go, let it go and after a lifetime of letting it go, it must be faced, it can not be ignored anymore.
It has been like poking a bear, one who has dedicated his whole life and then been abused must face it and tell the story of a life lived with the greatest love his grandparents and dragged through one huge trip.
Time is Now.
