Familiar with those moments of utter blankness when you have to think of an idea and all that comes to you is...nothing? You are not alone.

Be it the patriotic ‘Yo Mann Ta Mero Nepali Ho’, or the romantic ballads like ‘Parelima’, and ‘Chudaina Timro Maya Le’, 1974 AD, in their prime, was an unstopable force to reckon with. Even to this day, a diverse age-group relish the grooves of the band’s evergreen compositions, consequently contributing in recognizing a unique legacy spanning over two decades. However, while still in their prime, the band’s founding member and the lead vocalist, Phiroj Shyangden, called it quits.
