    Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay enrolled for four years of engineering course from Jadavpur University, but thankfully dropped out of it. That is not to say that he didn't have the makings of a good engineer; it's just that he made a far better singer and a music composer than he could have ever made an engineer. Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay, also known as Hemanta Mukherjee, was born in Varanasi. Apart from singing, this talented individual also tried his hand in writing and even got a short story published in the prized magazine "Desh". But as they say "home is where the heart is"; it was in music that Hemanta found his sense of belongingness and his collaboration with industry stalwarts like Sachin Dev Burman, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle Kishore Kumar, Naushad, Laxmikant Pyarelal, and many others produced fruitful results and cemented his position in the industry as both, a leading playback singer and a gifted music composer. To this day, his legacy in the form of music continues to weave a melodious web among his fans.
