He breathed his last and succumbed to a cardiac failure on 25th May 2012.
Some of the best song-performances of Dilip are:
- 'Janaki Devi Ramanai Thedi' ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAlFIeHG4yY)
- 'Moongil Ilai' ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP1YTKwLksk&feature=related)
I dedicate the post whose album video was prepared with Moongil Ilai as the inspiration. It is unfortunate that a lot of major things happened in the memorial day weekend of 2012.
