 About the Book 

There was once a young boy who loved nothing more than making music. He dreamt of sharing his music with the world. One day, his dream came true. From a childhood spent strumming away at a guitar in Delhi to one of the most successful music composersMoreThere was once a young boy who loved nothing more than making music. He dreamt of sharing his music with the world. One day, his dream came true. From a childhood spent strumming away at a guitar in Delhi to one of the most successful music composers in Mumbai: this is the story of Shantanu Moitra. His ebullience and sheer sense of adventure light up this memoir. Finding himself all alone at Jaisalmer station at three in the morning as a schoolboy- days as a client servicing drone in an advertising agency- collaborations with the biggest names in Hindi cinema- the making of Parineeta, his greatest hit- an all-consuming love of astronomy- near-death escapades in the Himalayas- his surreal moment with Diego Maradona at Milan airport - these stories provide a fascinating glimpse of the man behind the music. On the Wings of Music is a collection of reminiscences, anecdotes and self-revelations, embellished by photographs from Moitras personal albums. These are delightful vignettes that chart the growth of a timid, self-effacing boy into a music composer of international repute. Charming and compelling.
