Its shocking but true. Indian cinema's legendary golden voice Manna Dey's dead body was drenched in rain as the authorities failed to make proper arrangements. Manna Dey died at government hospital. According to sources neither an umbrella nor a stretcher was provided.
The Karnataka Government is under fire for showing disrespect..
On the other hand Manna Dey's daughter has alleged that the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee gave a cold response on hearing the news and asked her to bring the body to Bengal. Sumitha Manna Dey's daughter has even gone further by saying that Mamta Banerjee didn,t even offer her condolences.
Manna Dey, who hails from West Bengal, had made Bengaluru his home for years.
Manna Dey was in government hospital for the last five months.. what was the Hindi film industry doing..
The federation should have taken care and those known names who claim to know Manna Dey and are awed by his singing greatness are busy giving bytes on television.
Not a single known singer actor musician filmmaker was present.. it doesn't takes much time from Mumbai to Bangalore.. if it would have been a promotion for an upcoming film or to get an award it could have being another story..
This is sad but this is how the Indian film industry its celebrities, the government has treated an icon who breathed his last at a government hospital.. who to blame..
