MUSIC LOVERS

IT was the year of 1958. There was a musical instruments shop in south California, in Los Angeles. It was the only shop. Where authentic Indian musical instruments were available. The owner of the shop was Mr David Bernard.


Salil Chowdhury

One day a 35 or 36 approx

Years old Indian man came to shop and ask to see some musical instruments and looking the instruments very carefully with shining eyes.


The man was in very normal attire and no one was attracted with him. Sales girl Miss. Christina rushed to him and ask, what can I do for you sir? He ask to show some sitar and and checking all of collection one by one, the young man asked for a particular sitar but it was on above height in shelf, Christina was not interested and avoiding him to show that sitar, meanwhile the owner entered in shop


Mr David Bernard and asked to young man and told him that this sitar is called boss guitar it's used in a big shows its not a common sitar, and an ordinary players cannot play this sitar but somehow he allowed to

show the sitar to him, now young man asked for permission to play the sitar


Surbahar Sitar

Now David didn't want to break the heart of that young man and he

started the tune played on sitar

He played in such a way that the people around also gathered there, continously watching him and enjoying the sitar, Christina was literally crying to listen the music, there was silence, when he stopped no one clap rather silent



All people got emotional and astonished, couldn't understand what to do clap or stay silent

Mr David Bernard said I never heard such a beautiful music and become so emotional and asked the young man , who are you? David said I heard Mr Ravi Shankar no one can play sitar like him, but you are not less than him. It's really beautiful and today I am blessed that you came to my shop. Please tell me what can I do for you? Young man said I want to buy this sitar.


Mr David said no you don't need to buy please accept it, its a gift from Me. Accept and it will be a pleasure and great Honour for me. Christina said I don't know too much about Indian but your art mesmerized me, I don't know I will meet you again or not. Christina was continously crying she taken a $1 note and request him to give autograph on it. The autograph was Mr Salil Chaudhary an Indian music director.and told about the sitar that we call it surbahar sitar later in 1959 he composed the music by using that sitar, song was ""O sajana barkha bahar aayee""



Mr Salil Chaudhary great Indian music director 19th November 1925 to 5 September 1995. His some of compositions are ""Aie mere pyare vatan""

""Dil Tadap tadap ke keh raha hia ""

"" Kahi door jab din dhal jaaye"" There is a big list of his compositions I just mentioned very few songs.
