By Correspondent

SHILLONG, Oct 14 - One of the biggest admirers of Bob Dylan, Lou Majaw today said the legendary singer should have received the Nobel prize in the 60s.

�I am surprised why it took so long to give him the award. It should have been given in the 60s. It has come way too late,� Majaw, who sings Dylan�s covers, said.

He, however, added he is immensely pleased that finally the man he admires has got the Nobel prize. �I love Bob Dylan�s music for its lyrical depth,� Majaw said.

Majaw has been celebrating Dylan�s birthday in the State Capital here in his own humble way for several years now. Each year, Majaw and his singer friends get together and play some of the Dylan�s songs. �We will be playing this Sunday in honour of Dylan getting the Nobel prize,� Majaw informed.

Dylan has been awarded the Nobel prize for Literature for the beautiful lyrics of his songs. Some of his songs Blowin� in the Wind, Mr Tambourine Man, Forever Young and several others are anthems for music lovers the world over.

�Dylan has brought a new expression of poetry through his songs. Poetry has some element of musicality and Dylan has been able to make that connect between poetry and music,� AS Guha, Regional Director of Indira Gandhi National Open University and also a poet and writer, said.
