"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come from the depth of truth; Where tireless striving stretches its arms toward perfection; Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit; Into that heaven of freedom it should be our intent. ( my adaption from Rabindranath Tagores famous lines)

My wife (Hema) and her musicl voice

This post is in remembrance of my wife’s voice about 25 years back. It is not that she has not got the voice now, at the age of 75; it is that she cannot ‘hold’ the voice for a long period and that the strength is weaker.
I have put aside a few of the recordings I made (amateurish) when alone with her when she was around 50 and when she was not singing professionally any more. The recordings we not planned. She just sang offhand with a harmonium. The name of the song is followed with the Ragam.
