“Before I start singing, I invoke my God, my Guru.
I am nothing, I say, give me strength, I am nothing.
And then the strength begins to seep into your pores
and you can feel the glowing of your soul.”
~ Pandit Bhimsen Joshi
Upcoming Concert: RITU SANGEET: A Thematic concert created by Pandita Veena Sahasrabuddhe.

Venue: Mitralaya 19306 Pinnacle Ct, Saratoga, CA Tickets: www.sulekha.com or at the door (email@example.com) All proceeds of the Ritu Sangeet concert will be donated to research for a rare brain disorder called progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). My guru and mother(-in-law), Vidushi Veena Sahasrabuddhe, was diagnosed with PSP a few years ago. It has been heartbreaking for me and her millions of fans to watch the progression of this rare brain disorder. I hope you will attend the concert and support this cause.
