Shakti Samanta on S. D. Burman,
"The first time I went to Dada for music for my film was for 'Insaan Jaag Utha'. He heard the story, the situation of the song, 'Janu jaanu ri...' and then asked me how I was going to picturise the song. I told him it was going to be shot between the wheels of two cranes. He wanted to know the approximate distance between the wheels of the two cranes. I thought it would be about 10-12 feet. A couple of days later I got a phone call from him to go over to his place. When I reached there I saw that he had drawn a line on the floor of about 10 feet and was dancing around it trying to keep beat within the 10 feet! That was his involvement with his songs."
