The most favorite Hindu festival of all, Holi has a strong connection with the divine Krishna. It’s been written in many scriptures that Krishna started this tradition of Holi with his beloved Radha. He enjoyed teasing her by throwing blue color on Radha’s fair face.
On a sultry Sunday evening, we decide to visit Pandit Hariprasad Charausia’s gurukul. Tucked in a corner in the Mumbai suburbs, we enter his school to be greeted with the melodic notes of the bansuri.
As a student of Indian Classical Music, I have been to Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia’s Vrindavan Gurukul (school) in the past for many- a- times, just to listen to his music and to imbibe whatever I can from his divine playing. But this time my purpose to visit Vrindavan Gurukul was different! I was interviewing a musician for the first time ever and that too of Panditji’s calibre!
