Come monsoon... and it brings relief from the sizzling hot summer.
Come the black clouds... and separation from the beloved become unbearable.
Each bolt of lightning hits straight at the heart and makes it beat faster.
Kajri, the songs of longing are the outbursts of a woman overwhelmed by desire.
Derived from the word Kajal meaning Kohl, Kajris are sung by classical and semi classical musicians. There are two forms of Kajri singing in UP, one that is sung on a performance platform and the other sung by women dancing in a semi-circle, the 'Dhunmuniya Kajri'.
Indian Government needs to spend more on classical music academy and its training. Our culture and past is subliming into the broad lightening of modern advancement. Despite new toys like computers, space missions and Cellular phones, our inner self doesn't changes. Our classical music has been more Divine!
to be continue....
