Veteran Singer Sandhya Mukherjee, a legendary Bengali vocalist, passed away on February 15th. She was 90 years old. Sandhya Mukherjee had been sick for several days. According to hospital reports, the legendary singer experienced a catastrophic heart arrest today and died despite significant attempts to resuscitate her.
Sandhya Mukherjee was admitted to the hospital in the last week of January after developing problems from the Covid-19 infection. The honours were presented on Republic Day, January 26. Soumi Sengupta, the famous playback singer’s daughter, said her mother turned down the honour because “conferring a Padma Shri to a legend like her at the age of 90 is terribly insulting.” “It has nothing to do with politics.” She is unaffected by politics. Please don’t try to find political justifications for it. Soumi Sengupta had also stated at the time, “She felt insulted, that’s all.”
Sandhya Mukherjee, one of the loveliest voices in playback singing in the 1960s and 1970s, has thousands of songs to her credit in Bengali and almost a dozen other languages. Music fans notably admire her duets with great singer Hemanta Mukherjee.
In 2011, Sandhya Mukherjee was awarded the Banga Bibhusan, the highest civilian honour bestowed by the West Bengal government. For Jay Jayanti, the Bengali version of the Hollywood classic Sound of Music, she received the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer in 1970.
