BHOJPURI has given me so much that I can’t think of how to compensate back. Says Kalpana…..with god’s grace it’s been a very beautiful journey. Whenever people comes to know about me being from Assam they get surprised and always express-----oh Assam,Dr Bhupen Hazarika------Ganga Bahti ho kyon.....and after him here comes Kalpana. I feel so very special because from my childhood days Dr Bhupen Hazarika has been my idol. He is not just an idol but a soch, a thought for me. And if my respected listeners thinks and put up my name just beside my childhood idol Dr Bhupen Hazarika,it itself carries so much of responsibility for me. Professionally, I was busy singing….but somehow deep inside my heart there was a VACUAM and after some time I realized it was desperately searching something.Who and where is the Dr BHUPEN HAZARIKA of Bhojpuri Literature.At last my search full stopped when I found HIM. They address him as the Shakespeare of Bhojpuri literature….BHIKHARI THAKUR. But then, who is he and where is he now?
