Virtuoso music composer, Vanraj Bhatia, 92 -- who scored the music for Shyam Benegal classics like Ankur and Bhumika and and TV series Yatra and Discovery of India -- is in dire straits today. Advanced age, a steady withdrawal from a busy work life, andr eclusiveness find the Mumbai-born musician isolated and bedridden in his apartment at the Rungta Housing Colony on Napean sea Road.
