    The list does not contain some remarkable names, such as mentioned by Pratick, Kishore Kumar, then Manna De also. Moreover, when we are talking about singers, we should keep aside the persons who are composer first, then singer. So, S D Burman, R D Burman and Bappi Lahiri, we should not consider here. We should consider all of them in ” Top 10 famous Bengali composers” list. Here I am listing the ‘Top 10 Famous Bengali Singers’ just modifying a little of your list :

    1. Hemant Kumar (Hemanta Mukherjee)
    2. Manna De
    3. Kishore Kumar
    4. Abhijeet
    5. Alka Yagnik
    6. Kumar Sanu
    7. Shaan
    8. Babool Supriyo
    9. Shreya Ghosal
    10. Arijit Singh

    Also some points I got from yours, which I want to highlight here.
    A. Bappi Lahiri’s era is 80s. But 90s can never be told as Bappi da’s era. It might goes to Nadeem-Shravan or A R Rahman.
    B. Kumar Sanu is the first Bengali/Indian/Asian who got the honor from Ohio, Dayton, when 31st March was declared as Kumar Sanu Day. Shreya Ghosal is the 2nd person to achieve the same. 26th June declared as Shreya Ghosal Day.

  3. Abhishek says:

    Bro you missed the names of Kishore Kumar(original name was Abhas Kumar Ganguly), Manna Dey, Hemant Kumar and Geeta Dutt(originally named Geeta Ghosh Roychowdhury)
