    Vani commented in Sanjay’s blog about this snap thus:
    Hey Bellur,

    Have you observed that snap on your blog? (Dr Raj with Ustaad Bismillah Khan) Jayaprada na nodida takshana I felt she looked very know to whom?…to our Malavika. There’s a striking resemblance in that photograph.

  3. rk Says:

    Gangadhar: Thanks. Yes, the scrapbook has some really rare snaps that Dr.Rajkumar himself felt he hadn’t seen when I showed it to him at his residence.

    Vani: Howdhu ri, holike ide. 🙂

    Bellur, I remembering seeing the same picture in Vijay times yesterday & the explanations sounded similar.
    R G Vijayasarthy is the author ansatte. Do you write in that name ?

  5. rk Says:

    Vijaysarathy’s article came after a day of the Ustad’s death, while I put up the tributes on the day the Ustad died. Also in the VT article, I remember there was no caption for the picture. And, I have read this interview of Rajkumar, and what I have written is as told by Rajkumar. After reading the VT article, I felt my story was more comprehensive comapared to Vijaysarathy’s. 🙂

    Maybe he wrote the article after reading my tributes to the Ustad! Quite a possibility. 😉
