Entertainment Report :
Legendary playback singer Andrew Kishore’s funeral will be held in Rajshahi city on Wednesday, his brother-in-law Dr Patrick Bipul Biswas said on Tuesday.
Andrew Kishore breathed his last at his elder sister Dr Shikha Biswas and her husband Dr Patrick Biswas’ house in Mahishabathan area in Rajshahi city on July 6. Dr Biswas said it has been slightly delayed so that Kishore’s son and daughter, who live in Australia, have enough time to reach Rajshahi to attend their father’s funeral.
Kishore’s son Jay Andrew Saptok has already returned back home on July 9 while daughter Minim Andrew Songa arrived on Monday.
Kishore’s body was kept in the mortuary of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. “If all goes well, his funeral will be carried out according to plan,” Dr Biswas said. From the mortuary the body will be taken to Rajshahi City Church in Shreerampur area at 9:00am on Wednesday for the religious formalities. According to his last wish, he will be buried at the cemetery of the Church of Bangladesh near Rajshahi Circuit House in the afternoon, said Dr Biswas.
Kishore’s parents and a brother were also buried in the same cemetery. “Christians have a tradition of visiting their relatives' graves on November 1 every year. On such a day in 2017, Kishore and I visited the cemetery together,” recalled Dr Biswas.
“At the end of our prayers, he walked around the cemetery and chose a beautiful spot. He said he wants his burial to be done at that spot,” Dr Biswas said, “And we will fulfill his wish.” He was undergoing treatment at a clinic here, owned by his sister Dr Shikha Biswas.
