Composer N Datta’s 31st death anniversary happened on December 30, 2018. I had posted a list of Bollywood songs; he had composed during the 1950s, on that day. Today, I have selected some of Composer N Datta’s Bollywood 1970s songs. N Datta was born on December 12, 1927, in the small Goan Village of Aroba, near Covale. He ran away from home at 12 years of age and reached Mumbai. There he took classical music classes and later began assisting Ghulam Haider. He also participated in music programs organized on the streets where S D Burman spotted him. N Datta started to assist Burman Dada and also created independent compositions, on his own.
