A Classical Tribute


Last Saturday, as classical tunes engulfed the JD Media Auditorium inside the Punjab Kesari complex in Delhi, one thing that marked each and every performance that evening was "remembering Pandit Ravi Shankar". Hindi daily Punjab Kesari's Varishth Nagrik Kesari Club paid a befitting tribute to the late sitar maestro, remembering him for his contribution in putting Indian classical music on the international map, and his role in classical music innovations and fusion. The event was graced by singer Anita Singhvi as chief guest, along with ghazal singer Satish Babbar and SPICMACAY chairperson Rashmi Malik. There were vibrant Sufi, ghazal and classical music performances by the likes of Pamela Singh, Singhvi and Maya Malhotra, Harimitra Lamba and VK Mishra and Ravindra Abhi. Later, Malik congratulated Varishth Nagrik Kesari Club and its chairperson, Kiran Chopra, for working towards the welfare of senior citizens. Chopra, in turn, bestowed mementos to the eminent guests.
