Journey through pictures

We are presenting a series of rare photos of Geeta Dutt ji collected from various online resources. Some of the family photographs were shared by Geeta ji’s son Shri Arun Dutt ji. We are highly grateful to him for this kind gesture.

4) This may have been clicked in 1950-51 during the recording sessions of “Brindabone Shyam Nai” and “Rajani Pohalo Sakhi” – I feel so as we see Pabitra Mitra, the lyricist of both the songs, towards Geetaji’s right and towards the extreme left of the photograph, Kirtan artiste Nilima Banerjee. Maybe she was there as Sudhirlal Chakraborty’s (the composers) assistant in training Geetaji for these two Kirtan-based compositions.
