Begum Akhtar The Queen of Ghazal (Rupa Charitavali Series)
Description
From The Jacket

Her voice had the seductiveness of mellow wine. When Begum Akhtar sang, she could make her audience sway to every emotion In the lyrics of a ghazal.

Once ghazals and thumris were the music of the court singers. It was Begum Akhtar's great artistry that took the music from the 'kothas' and gave it a place on the concert stage as a light classical music.

This is the captivating story of one of India's legendary musicians. Born in a family of court singers, she transformed herself from Akhtaribai Faizabadi to the revered Begum Akhtar. A singer who captured the heart of a nation by her grace and incomparable singing.

IAs a serious student and teacher of Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣad and Jyotiṣa I have found you have some good editions of English with sanskrit texts. Having texts of high quality with both is essential.   This has been a user friendly experience
