Sangeet Samrat Tansen Sangeet Samaroh

The annual music festival, which started long ago in 1930's at Gwalior, one of the powerful centres of Hindustani Classical Music, called Tansen Sangeet Samaroh is on. After a rather boring and rhythm-less introductory speech by cultural minister of Madhya Pradesh (which they mentioned as only 'pradesh') the festival started off with Shehnai by Mr Dayashankar from Delhi.

If you are wondering how do I know all these minute details, let me explain-

The 'cultural' channel run by the Govt. of India, called "Doordarshan Bharti," is telecasting the festival live!

So, if you have time and interest, tune in to DD Bharati in the evenings for the next few days...
