I awoke to the sad news that Kuldeep Manak Ji had passed away, after battling with a bout of Pneumonia.
At one point or another, even the most casual Punjabi song listener has heard a Kuldeep Manak song, whether it be an original song of his, or a remix. His music inspired and touched the lives of millions over a span of multiple generations.
The Kaliyan Da Badshah may be gone, but his music will live on.
