I knew she was nervous about the trip—the distance, the many flights, the high standards of Bengalis—and to distract her I removed the lid of my harmonium and held down the Sa, Ga and Pa of Bhairavi. I was chhero-ing the thumri ‘Baju band khul khul jaye.’ (full article)

  1. Plz do add back cover of all such 57 CDs because back cover has all the info regarding Lyricist / Poet and Composer / Music Director. I’ll suggest you make another website for these 57 Cds. This is definitely a huge task but this will be life-saver for these CDs.
