Cultural Extravaganza


It was not raining today. Thanks to the rain gods! I had to go around BSK and near PESIT for some apartment scouting and came back home by eight. Needed a big break from the traffic and as usual BGU had the best answer – Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia!

Me and Srichand (one of my friends and ex colleagues – read a rich businessman now!) popped in around half past eight. It was a delightful concert and it was really amazing how the rythms of the Tabla and Flute coexisted with such a great harmony. If the flute was mastered, the tabla was even more!

All was well, and I was enjoying when something suddenly disturbed our concentration! Aaah a queue of people trying to give their interview to a TV 9 Reporter! I have always disliked TV 9 for their style of reporting but this gave me one more! The reported was not properly dressed for the ocassion, she was probably in the biggest Ganeshotsava in Bangalore and had one of the most eminent musicians on the stage and still, she did not know how to report that event! God, TV9, please hire me as an advisor. I can advice on multiple things ;). Of course a bunch of people talked about the fortnight long festival (they are planning 50 days for the 50th year) and it ended to my delight.

Back to the concert, it got finished with a Pahadi tune. Brilliant performace. Looking forward to his concert in this years Dussera as well.
