An acquaintance informed over Gtalk that Zubeen is dead in an accident at Sonapur, Tezpur.
No English can contain how I felt. Xorioh phool dekhi golu!!! "It has to be a rumour"... I consoled myself as I frantically searched my contact list for all those sources who can be contacted at 11:30pm.
After some bewildered Whats, Hoboi Nuares, Dhet Ki Koisas, and that there was a bus accident in Sonapur yesterday, true, but Zubeen definitely wasnt there - we concluded it was only a fitment of somebody's kamnuhua's imagination and truly a disgusting one at that!
Zubeen is very much alive and kicking at Andaman (from another source). Looking at the watch and going by his reputation, though, my friend concluded he must be lying somewhere drunk.
Houk teu...Bhogobanok kouti kouti dhonyobaad!
Nevertheless (my theme being "Good Things") - the whole episode was a reminder what Zubeen means to me and my likes amongst the Oxomiya (Assamese) lot. Will some Oxomiya doc volunteer, make sure he has regular health check-ups. I am truly worried about his liver, if you know what I mean.
God Bless ZG!
P.S.: Boy, I just came to know he sang in the Jhoom Barabar Jhoom.
