Continuing the posting of RMIM Commemoratives in no particular order. I have not attended all of them. They go way back. The Google group is here. You can read about the old meetings and see some photos on the facebook RMIM page here. Look for the docs on the right. I think by now everybody knows that RMIM is the mother of all discussion groups of its kind on the Internet having started in January 1992. Face-to-face meetings started soon after. We start with the CD presented at

Usually at RMIM meets there is distributed a commemorative collection of songs. RMIMers have been doing it for more than 10 years now. At the recent west coast (of USA) meet, an mp3 CD of 100 songs (one song per MD) was distributed by Parag Sankla. He did that in order to "bring out the diversity, range and depth of" her work. According to him, many people are led to believe that Geeta "sang mostly/only for Burmanda, Nayyar sahab and Hemantda". Of course, RMIMers and readers of the monumental and pioneering Hindi Film Geet Kosh has known for ages that that is not true. He made a post about it on his world-famous Geeta Dutt blog.  Parag was kind enough to send me a copy. I will be posting about 10 songs a day from the CD.
