The composer, Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar (lovingly called Baba, and also known as Shrii Shrii Anandamurtiiji) initiated the school of music (gharana) of Prabhat Samgiita in Deoghar, in the eastern Indian state of Bihar, on September 14, 1982, in the sixtieth year of his life. By October 21, 1990, the day of his departure from this world, he had completed 5018 songs, a number surpassing that of any known composer before him. Yet so effortless was the creative flow in his mind, that the composition of all these songs occupied a minimal amount of time in an extremely full life, a life of intense organizational activity as president of Ananda Marga.
