Abba God's Greatest Gift to Us
Abba God's Greatest Gift to Us
Description
From the Jacket

Abba-God's Greatest Gift to Us is a reflection of the Bangash family in tradition and in transition. Amaan Ali Bangash and Ayaan Ali Bangash- the two sons of the sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan, and promising players themselves, look at their father's life with deference, humility and great love. In a world where traditional culture is often considered passé. It is refreshing to come across a family which upholds traditional values, amalgamated though they may be with modern thinking and an urbane sophistication.

Making no bones about the constant balance they strive to achieve in separating the father from the guru, the Bangash brothers tell of their father's struggles, his emotional conflicts, the betrayals he faced, his secular approach to life….. Interesting vignettes of the maestro's interaction with people-famous and ordinary, indulgent cameos of his fads and foibles. Jungian examples of how the man is ruled by his heart-such are the visible vibrations of the life of a man as seen by his progeny.

This biography differs from others about him in that his life has been put under a microscope by his sons. Herein lies a tale charged with emotion, objective judgment, curiosity and above all, an unflinching faith in a father and guru.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
