New Realms of Spirituality
Guru krupanjan payo mere bhai," sings Meeta Shah with devotion in her recently-released album Krupanjan. The album of 11 tracks, which is dedicated to Dada J P Vaswani, was released by him at the Sadhu Vaswani Mission. Shah's quest for touching divine powers is rendered in a variation of tones and compositions while flautist Ronu Mujumdar gives a soothing accompaniment. In her track Atra aur tatra, Shah sings the different names and forms of God to display truth and shun violence in this aggressive world. Another track Amulya Vichar, written by Mahatma Gandhi's spiritual guide Shrimad Rajchandraji, urges listeners towards retrospection and introspection.
