Mira, the legendary saint – Poet, is one of the most revered figures of India. Mira was a
princess of Mewar who sacrificed her comforts for the sake of her devotion to Lord Krishna.
She suffered social reproach to such an extent that according to some scholars her name was
often used as a tern of abuse and her devotional songs were suppressed in her home state

the eminent classical vocalist from the Gwailor gharana renders some of the hitherto unknown
compositions of mira in her evocative style. What emerges from Neela Bhagwat’s
interpretation is an altogether new picture of the saint – poet who forcefully asserts her
devotion to Lord Krishna.
