Reimagining forgotten Indian album covers for World Music Day - 
I picked 'Jaan-e-Chaman aaja' focusing on Lolita Chatterjee.  I only heard it when i met for the first time about three years ago, and she was a bit aghast that i didn't really know anything about bollywood/bengali cinema -and there she was, this vault of stories (and mild scandal), showing me what she's done, singing the songs  and asking
if I knew anyone in movies she had been in.
I didn't get to see her as much as I'd like, and I always though she should write a book because her life was really something. - and she never really got her due. I was in Calcutta the week after she passed, these two songs were playing at the house a lot, they were playing at the house a lot the first few times I met her.- i guess thats why I remember them, they were there at the beginning and the end.
