Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], August 8 (ANI): A tea shop owner in Kolkata not just serves tea to customers but also entertains them by singing Kishore Kumar songs. Nag's videos went viral on social media.
Paltan Nag runs a tea shop on Beniatola Lane in North Kolkata.
Customers at his shop not just enjoy the sip of hot tea but also rejuvenate themselves by listening to the melodious songs of Kishore Kumar in Nag's voice.

He urged the Central government to confer the highest civilian award Bharat Ratna to Kishore Kumar.
"I celebrated Kishore Da's birthday on August 4. I am happy that people like my song. Singing is my passion. Kishore Da remains in my heart. He is my God. I also do stage programs. I want the Government to confer Bharat Ratna on Kishore Kumar," Nag told ANI.
He said he always wanted to be a singer but the financial condition of his family was not good enough so he had to join his father in selling tea to earn his livelihood.
