'I was seventeen when I fell in love with Bhupen Hazarika. A man older than my father.'
We all know Bhupen Hazarika as a singer-composer poet and lyricist non-pariel. What about the man behind the legend?
Told through the lens of Kalpana Lajmi Bhupen Hazarika: As I knew Him is a free-flowing memoir moving back and forth across time defying description much like the love story it narrates. It is the story of a unique bond of the coming together of two talented artistes of a man who used his art as an instrument of social change who was charismatic and passionate and a woman a fierce feminist who has never cared much about societal norms and yet who could never turn away from him despite his mercurial ways his unreasonable tantrums and his unwillingness to recognize her as a companion.
