Ranu Mandal-Brief Life Sketch

Ranu Mandal (Ranu Ray)is a beggar singer who used to sing songs in the street, especially on the railway platform in West Bengal for a living. He was born on October 10, 1959, in a very poor family.

Ranu Mandal was married at an early age to Babul Mandal of Mumbai and shifted to Mumbai after marriage. Their married life was not a happy one.  She gave birth to a girl child but after the birth of the daughter, her husband died and soon after the death of her husband, she returned to her paternal village, Ranaghat, West Bengal. Her life in Ranaghat was full of hardships. During her days at Ranaghat, her only daughter stayed away from her as she did not like her mother to sing on the railway platform. 

At the age of 20, she used to sing in the club. There she was called  Ranu Bobby. He soon quit singing at the club because his family did not support her in the profession. But as she got no other means of living, she started singing at the railway station of Ranaghat. People enjoyed her song who came to the station but everybody ignored her.

Ranu Mandal often sang old songs. One day Atindra Chakraborty, a software engineer, happen to listen to her melodious song. Atinder puts video recordings of her songs on social media. The video featured Ranu singing Lata Mangeshkar’s song, “Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai”. The video went viral overnight and his voice was appreciated by millions of people and even by big personalities.

After seeing her popularity, Sony Entertainment TV channel invited her to a  reality show. Impressed by his voice, Himesh Reshammiya offered her songs in his film. Soon Himesh recorded the song ‘Teri Meri Kahani’ with Ranu Mondal for his film. Atinder was also in the studio when Ranu was recording the song for Himesh. After that Ranu got offers of songs from several other music directors and got contracts for music festivals.

Though she was raised to popularity overnight, she failed to retain her new position in life because of her arrogant and eccentric behavior and resultantly she went back to her beggar life.  0 0 0
