    She passed away last month? Really sad but this was not highlighted anywhere in the news! She was, I think, the first music composer in Bollywood? I am not sure, but she was really a brilliant composer. May her soul rest in peace.

    Usha Khanna Composed several melodious songs. I like her compositions in Hum Hindustan, like Neeli Neeli Ghata, Hum jab Chale to etc.

    Songs like Dil deke Dekho .., .. Pyaar Ki kasam hai.. are my ever favorite songs. I observed some similarities in composing style and usage of instruments like Clarinet are there between Usha Khanna and OP. Nayyar.

    RIP

    Very sad before some days I read her interview, she said that she is composing music for film of Sawan Kumar Tak, who is also husband of her.

    This article is claming that Usha Khanna was 89 year old?, ans also writing of husban some one Khanna. It may possible that Sawan Kumar is her second husband.

    Sawan Kumatr had  written most of Usha Khanna's songs. Usha Khanna will be remembered for her well composed and well  rendered songs like, Shayad Mer Shaadi Ka khaya.. Hum Jab Chale To etc .She received Filmfare Award for Best Music Director for the Movie " Souten "
