Because of the Bandh yesterday, just stayed at home and spent time listening to old gramophone plates. Heard Begum Akhtar, MS, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, Ustad Bismillah Khan, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Aaradhana (Film) among others.
Just seeing the plate turn and spin out classic numbers made me feel really nostalgic. I went back in time.
