Notes to Myself



I told you so…first! :-)

Few months back, on 8th January 2018 to be precise, I wrote a blog on Anuja Kamat’s Youtube Channel for Indian Classical Music Enthusiasts

It was good to read today a detailed story on this in

Today happens to be his 77th birthday (8th Feb 1941 – 10th Oct 2011), so thought of sharing both versions of this Ghazal. Enjoy!

Just created a new podcast on SoundCloud. Let’s see how long this lasts. Here is the first upload. Wanted to start with an instrumental, a spiritual one, hence opted for “Sounds of Isha – The Seed
