There are different ways of paying tributes to a legend on their death anniversary. On the eve of the first death anniversary of legendary poet Padmabhooshan Mangesh Padgaonkar, a video CD was released, which presents a song picturised, based on his popular poem ‘Mee Kuthe Mhanalo Pari Milavi, Fakta Jara Bari Milavi‘. The wordings of this poem had created a controversy recently, when IAS officer and poet Dilip Pandharpatte had also claimed that some of the wordings in the poem were his own. But, the poem, which was posted on social networking sites indicated that it was Late Mangesh Padgaonkar‘s poem.
However, the launch of Video CD went of smoothly, in presence of Mangesh Padgaonkar’s son Dr. Ajit Padgaonkar and daughter Anjali Padgaonkar.
