This week was nice. I witnessed the best music event of my life till now. It was a combination of cello, a dutch instrument very nicely Indianised and Sitar. Two great artists,Pt. Shubnendra Rao on sitar and Saskia Rao De Haas on cello did magic on stage. That was the first time for me to see some classical concert and to see both of these instruments be played in front of me by the maestros. That was a awesome experience guys..
Today i joined the group who organised this event in Infy, Spic Macay. This started in 70's and today it has its chapters in 250 cities in india(mainly in schools and colleges) and also abroad.
.16 persons from age 15 to 83 were in the meeting and all of them were so enthusiatic about what they are doing and what they are going to do. These guys organise shows with the most renounced artists of this time..Pt. Hariprasad chaurasia, Zakir hussain,Pt. Ravi shankar, Pt. shiv kumar sharma..etc etc..and know them personally...
That feeling was great actually..the feeling that I was talking to such personalities who have met these big guys, who can talk about music the whole day,persons who were above 80 with the spirit of 18,persons who were 15 with the enthusiasm and hard work of 25....
Had a nice experience..

That must be "some" experience!

Do you all remember that LOC was very close to organise a SPIC MACAY event after putting up a good show in the faculty vs. students debate?

Then we missed it...
