Throughout the concert, his young son Samrat accompanied him. Watching them perform together seemed as if the gap between two generations had been bridged. Samrat appears to share and understand his father’s sensibility completely. There was not a single harsh note, a crude negotiation, or clash of emotions. They preserved their respective spaces with utmost sanctity. Every moment of the concert was marked by a deep sense of grace, melody, and finesse.
