The Odia community lost a reputed singer (and lawyer) Sujit Mohanty. He passed away peacefully on Sunday (January 22, 2017). He belonged to the second generation (45 RPM) of gramophone recording artists behind the Akhsyaya Mohanty era. He had entertained the Odia community for more than 3 decades. The picture on the record (he had presented to me) was debuted in 1981. To many of us it is a personal loss. We express our condolence and much sympathy to the bereieved family.
