This blog is just about everything under the sun.
It is really my diary....I jot out events that leave
a lasting impression on me. It could be anything; relationships, business, culture...writing provides me a release from everyday stress and I take refuge in it very often. It gives me a lot of pleasure.

Baul mela 2016, Jadavpur,India
One of my favourite events of the year is the Baul mela that happens typically around the 9th and 10th of January, every year, in Shaktigarh, Jadavpur, Kolkata.
If I am in town this is an event I never miss. Rarely do we get to see so many bauls coming together and performing in this event.
Here is a clipping of a baul perfomer singing.If you like folk music, this one is for you!
