Many music lovers have found solace in music to help them cope with issues related to lockdowns. Many artistes have been reaching out to their fans to keep a connect with them, some with online performances from time to time.

It is heartening that Madanji and his contemporaries are also remembered through the crisis. What bigger achievement for any artiste than to be a part of our difficult times even four decades after having left us.

Malhar, a Dubai based group, is paying an online tribute to Madanji on 12 June, 2020 followed by R.D. Burman a week later.

The USA based group, Sur Dhanuk Dhun is also doing a Facebook live event on 20 June, 2020, as a tribute to the two composers, to commemorate their birth anniversaries in June. It is amazing how Madanji continues to be a favorite choice among his admirers all over the world.
