A Billion Hearts Beat For Awarding Bharat Ratna to Kishore Kumar

By  | 

Kishore Kumar is a legend who has entertained billions of music lovers across the world across generations. Can you believe it that he actually started his career in 1946 before we became independent as a country. He passed away in 1987 and still generations born after his death have grown up listening to his songs. Such is the impact of legends like him which transcends across time and space. Although Kishore Kumar has won hearts of millions of music lovers,  he has not received any awards of national stature.


Suresh Kumar from Indra Travels started uniting music lovers across the world to support honoring him with Bharat Ratna. So here is your opportunity to participate in the cause by signing this online petition.



Kishore Kumar fans have made a Facebook group MISSION : BHARAT RATNA FOR KISHORE KUMAR to spread the message and this is also supported by the Facebook group of Amit Kumar fans – Celebrating the success of Amit Kumar.

Famous director-choreographer Farah Khan has also signed the petition.

Couple of days back on 31st July, Union Minister and Singer Babul Supriyo tweeted supporting the campaign that he had been trying for this for some time, and hopefully, the mission would be successful this year. His tweet also found support from famous film personalities like Tabassum.

Parallel to the online petition, a mass signature campaign is being started from 4th Aug on the 87th Birthday of the Legend, across the country including one at Kolkata Tollygunge statue, at Khandwa, at Rajasthan, at Punjab – Patiala KK fans club and at Burdwan Town Hall by Burdwan Kishore Kumar Fan Club, and many more other places.
