Resuming Updates to Kamat's Potpourri Durable Link to this BLOG
I am resuming updates to after a slowdown during the last few months....

Malli Updates Kamat's Potpourri

It is rather tragic that D.G. Mallikarjuna of Sidlaghatta, and Bappa (my dad) never met. They had exchanged letters and were to meet in a couple of weeks when Bappa suddenly passed away in 2002.

I first met Malli at the condolence meeting, and I was instantly drawn to his warm personality. Since then we have become family friends and I have discovered his multiple talents, which included wonderful handwriting, a keen interest in nature, quite a developed skill in photography, and even essay writing.

Malli wrote a great article "The Guru I Never Met" (Kannige Kanada Guru in Kannada), that I must translate one of these days, about Kamat. It is published in the Kammatiga volume.

In the last couple of months when Amma and I have been busy, it has been Malli who has kept the Kamat's Potpourri updated.

Please do visit Malli's Own Potpourri

Music is a Language of its own

After reading Amma's artcile on the Varkari Tradition prevalent in Maharashtra, I am humming "Maze maher Pandhari" song the whole day long.

It's funny, because I have listened to that song all my life, but until I read Amma's artcile, I didn't know what it meant!

So the meaning of the abhang is as beautiful as its probably far more popular rendering by Bhimsen Joshi.

Music indeed is a language of its own. One need not understand the lyrics to enjoy the music.

• Search for Maze Maher Pandhari song or CD.
• Text of the "Maze Maher Pandhari Abhang (Nagari)
