Prabodh Chandra Dey (1 May 1919 − 24 October 2013), known by his stage name Manna Dey, was an Indian playback singer. He debuted in the film Tamanna in 1942, by this song “Upar Gagan Bishal” and went on to record more than 4,000 songs from 1942 to 2013. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri in 1971, the Padma Bhushan in 20052 and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2007. Dey sang in all the major regional Indian languages, though primarily in Hindi and Bengali. His peak period in Hindi playback singing was from 1953 to 1976.

Early life

Dey was born to Mahamaya and Purna Chandra Dey on 1 May 1919 in Kolkata. Besides his parents, his youngest paternal uncle, Sangeetacharya Krishna Chandra Dey highly inspired and influenced him. He received his early education in Indu Babur Pathshala, a small pre-primary school. He started doing stage shows in school since 1929.[citation needed] He attended Scottish Church Collegiate School and Scottish Church College. He participated in sports events like wrestling and boxing in his college days, taking training from Gobar Guha. He graduated from Vidyasagar College. Dey began taking music lessons from Krishna Chandra Dey and Ustad Dabir Khan. During this period, he stood first for three consecutive years in three different categories of inter-collegiate singing competitions.

Personal life

In December 1953, Manna Dey married Sulochana Kumaran. She was originally from Kannur, Kerala. Together they had two daughters – Shuroma (b. 1956) and Sumita (b. 1958). Sulochana died in Bengaluru in January 2012. She had been suffering from cancer for some time. After her death Dey moved to Kalyan Nagar in Bengaluru after spending more than fifty years in Mumbai.

Illness and death

On 8 June 2013, Dey was admitted to the ICU in a Bengaluru hospital after a chest infection gave rise to other complications. His health gradually improved and about a month later doctors took him off the ventilator support.

He died of a cardiac arrest at 3:45 pm on 24 October at Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital. Musicians, politicians, cricketers and other notable persons issued statements on his death
