Legendary singer Manna Dey who gave a new language to music breathed his last in Bangalore after a prolonged illness. For the last couple of months, he made frequent visit to hospital. He was recently admitted to Hrudayalaya institute in Bangalore. He passed away at 3:50 am in the morning. He was 94.
