Tribune News Service

CHANDIGARH, Aug 28 — Images of hill and dale, innocent pahari girls and royal courts were effectively unfolded by Subhash Ghosh, a disciple of Ustad Amjad Ali Khan through instrumental music during the "Images", a musical show organised by the Academy of Indian Classical Music and Fine Arts to help Kargil martyrs' families and child patients at the APC auditoriuin in PGI tonight.

After a presentation of an ode to Goddess Sarasvati in Raag Hans Dhawani and a song ," Hum Bachon Ko Gian Do" by children, Ghosh and his troupe went on to conjure up various places and moods through the medium of different instruments.

The magic started unfolding with the recital of "Om" in Raag Yaman Kalyan, on a soft and soothing note, with participation of audience in remembering the omnipresent.

Then there was a sudden change in the atmosphere, as the audience saw itself in the midst of a royal durbar, when the troupe touched the famed Raag Durbari, the raaga of "Rajas and Maharajas" and later, the Raag Bhopali.

The serene landscapes, high mountains and beautiful gaddi girls grazing cattle alongside a spring, were all present, for those who had the ability to conjure up the image of these to Ghosh's music when he offered them Raag Pahari, by creating synchronised effects of flowing water. Adding charm to the presentation were the fingers of Vijay Chauhan on flute, and Sarabjit on the Tabla. The show countinued on with raagas such as Raag Bageshwari and Raag Yog, and ended on a happy note with Raag Peelu, the raaga of celebration.

Mr B.K. Sharma, the Director of the PGI, appreciated the effort by the academy to mitigate the sufferings of child patients and for raising funds for the welfare of Kargil heroes. Back
