    P.S. In an attempt to expose my 87-year-old mom to world music, I sent her some links to what I've been listening to lately, starting with "Boondan Boondan" by Maatibaani that you sent to me. My mom liked it a lot and commented on the demureness of Nirali and Ankita in contrast to American pop singers. She also sort of liked "Ja Ja Re" by Shankar Tucker with Nirali but didn't care for a classical Hindustani piece by Nirali with harmonium and tabla. I seem to be Nirali's only champion in her renditions of classical works, but I stand fast!

    Hi, Shalu! I'm very well, thanks. It sounds as though you are doing well, if a little harried by all the activity brought on by the reunion of your far-flung family. I am sure they will all be well-fed if you are in charge of the meals! Not surprisingly, I haven't had kulfi or falooda together...or separately. I hope you will be impressed that I just watched the World Cup match between the Netherlands and Costa Rica in its entirety. I was rooting for Costa Rica and thought they gave a good account of themselves. Have a wonderful time with your family but don't let yourself get run down.

    Hello dear Shalu, I'm sorry for my late reply. I'm still in Bursa. I haven't had internet and my last fm was off line. I spend time beautifully with my sisters and friends. I have had lots of things to do here. After some hot days it's rainy today. I'm writing to you in a summer garden full of trees and flowers. I'm happy. I have finished to read Ahmet Ümit's novel "A Momento for İstanbul". I love all his novels in which he narrates adventures about Turkey based by the real events and real places through his style "detective". Thank you for the interest in Turkish literature. By the way I have found this page about the novel. I hope you will enjoy it. http://www.timeoutistanbul.com/en/books/174/A-Memento-for-Istanbul- Thank you also for the great video. All the best...

    Namaste, Shalu. I'm doing well, thanks, and hope you are too. At long last I have finished "Bach: Music in the Castle of Heaven" by John Eliot Gardiner. I was very well-written albeit a little more scholarly than I would have preferred. Thanks for the compilation video of great Indian classical musicians. Some I recognized, many I didn't. I was shocked that Nirali wasn't there. ;-)

    I expect there are lots of people in the eastern hemisphere who are bleary-eyed from watching the World Cup. A problem with a sport beloved around the world is that a large segment of its fandom are bound to be watching international competition at odd hours. Sounds like you are staying grounded with the making of the delicious-sounding rogan josh and masala oats. I read a variety of novels and non-fiction books although the monumental work, "Bach: Music in the Castle of Heaven" by John Eliot Gardiner the renowned conductor, has monopolized the non-fiction category for quite a while. You can see what I've been reading here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/16237126?shelf=read The quantity of rain received here lately might qualify as a monsoon!

    Dear Shalu, thank you for your warm words; no need to apologize. I have lived in Bursa many years ago and I have worked there as a teacher. So I have lots of memories. You know music is my passion. I also love reading. I read Ahmet Ümit's roman: "A Momento for İstanbul" these days. I don't know if he has any novels translated in English. Thank you for the video of Kaushiki Chakrabarty singing Raga Multani. I wish you great summer days with love and peace. Here is my music recommendation Mono - Ashes In The Snow http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8Juilrg6oQ

    I look at cricket as a merciful alternative to football! Since I've been listening to classical music all my life, of course I'm familiar with Bruckner. I'm no Brucknerian, though. As you no doubt noticed in the Homage to Anton Bruckner page you sent, aficionados tend to be fervent in their devotion and intolerant of those who don't share their passion, as in the page owner asserting that anyone who criticizes Bruckner is an a******. I have most of Bruckner's major works in my music library but those works are seldom played as you can tell from my few Last.fm scrobbles. Thus, you will forgive me for not listening again to the "Romantic" symphony, even though it's short by Bruckner standards. Try not to lose too much sleep because of excessive World Cup watching!

    (continued) Arrgh! I forgot never to use the "Shout again" function, which has been broken as long as I've been using Last.fm. Let's see if I can remember what I just wrote! The BBC classical album listing was a surprise. Usually classical music charts are populated by classical crossover and light classical stuff but this one has bona fide classical works. Thanks for the link to the BBC music magazine podcast about the new Chamber Orchestra of Europe/Nézet-Séguin release of the Schumann symphonies. It induced me to take from my library a London Philharmonic/Kurt Masur rendition of Symphonies 1 & 4 which I've just begun to play. Other classical music magazine sites that might interest you are Gramophone (British): http://www.gramophone.co.uk/ and Listen (American): http://listenmusicmag.com/ .

    Greetings, Shalu. If I find that watching paint dry becomes too exciting, I know I can turn to watching football for relief. ;-) I just watched a program about the design of football stadia to limit the number of deaths and injuries caused by rioting and the crush of bodies. I believe cattle producers have similar problems. It's hard to believe that such a dull pastime can incite violence but unlike any other sport, football hooliganism has a lengthy entry in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_hooligan#United_States_and_Canada I can say that I have actually attended a professional football (soccer) match in the U.S. I don't remember much about it, though. I probably fell asleep. -_- I'll take cricket or baseball any day, thank you very much!

    Hi, Shalu. Nargisi kofta sounds delicious. I have kofta sometimes but it's vegetarian and frozen and I suspect it's much less tasty. Like most Americans but unlike the rest of the world, I'm indifferent to the World Cup. Your experience in the convent school was so positive! Maybe your cooking and drawing classes led to lifelong interests. Very few if any schools in the U..S. teach elocution and many have stopped teaching cursive writing. Seeing kids puzzling over a cursive English message as though it were Punjabi is pathetic. Happy day!

    Dear Shalu, you are very active and talented. I suppose you are interested in fine arts as hobby; I spend time outdoor. I take a walk every day. I haven't bought bread maker. And I make bread very rarely. I don't want to gain weight. I'm planning to go to Bursa in a week. I will make bread there for my sisters and friends. I read books by Turkish writers these days. I wish you a peaceful weekend. Here is a video for you: Arvo Pärt - Trisagion for String Orchestra - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXuKhYoFxW4

    Namaste, Shalu. The co-champions in the National Spelling Bee in the U.S. are both Indian-Americans. In fact, the last seven champions have been of Indian descent. I don't think that's a coincidence! Read about it here: http://www.twincities.com/breakingnews/ci_25864051/1st-52-years-co-champs-at-spelling-bee Happy weekend!

    Hello, Shalu. I'm very glad to hear that things are improving with your mom and that Mishka might be showing some improvement too. There are far worse ways to unwind than by cooking. Not only does it help relax you but others benefit from your culinary skill! Since the Minneapolis-St. Paul area has the greatest population of Tibetans in the U.S., finding a Tibetan restaurant won't be a problem. The first thing I'm going to try is Thukpa. Here's a sample from one of the menus: http://www.everestongrand.com/attachments/article/82/noodles.pdf Thanks for the suggestion!

    Dear Shalu, your new picture is very beautiful. I love your blue dress very much<3 The food streets look like attractive. Gandhibazaar as well. I have the opportunity to know your city through your words. Thank you for the attention about the mine disaster in Turkey. It's not a simple event. There is also a political side of the disaster. We have had a big national holiday on May 19, Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day. So I have participated that trip to Gallipoli, a campaign of World War I Actually I have visited the cemeteries for many times. Every time I visit there I see that war is absurd. Dear Shalu thank you for the relaxing music. I wish you a great day in peace and much love in your beautiful city. Here is a video for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-t02UsBdSY

    Hello dear Shalu, I apologize for my late response. I was in a trip. I'm glad you are interested in my country. Did you hear the bad news about the mine workers in Turkey? more than three hundred mine workers have died because of negligence of the authorities. It was really a disaster. I'm crying for them...

    Hi, Shalu. I'm doing fine but am sorry to hear that you are troubled by that neck of yours. You are due for some pain-free time so that you can fully enjoy life. The Leroy Anderson piece is a hoot. Here's another rendition of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GCBJPDCUF0 It occurs to me that while you and I understand typewriter technology perfectly well, it might as well be a telegraph key to future generations!

    Hello dear Shalu. How are you my dear friend? Thank you, I am fine but very busy, I haven't been here so much. Yes, I like Helene Grimaud a lot. You know, I attended her concert last Friday in Copenhagen, Denmark! Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto. I'll tell you more in a mail.. It was sent on the radio too, this is the link and I hope you can listen. Much is in Danish of course but there are even interviews in English with the conductor and with Helene too. The piano concerto starts at about 1:39:40. http://www.dr.dk/radio/ondemand/p2/p2-koncerten-595#!/ Take care, talk soon again. Love from Sweden :)

    Hello dear Shalu, thank you for your nice words. Last week my sister has arrived here. I spent time with her. We went to the Sultan Ahmet where Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque have located. It was very crowded. I saw trees in bloom. Unfortunately I haven' made bread yet. All the best :-)

    I haven't noticed limitations of Nirali Kartik's upper range but I'm certainly no judge of Indian vocal music. I've been listening to Nirali Kartik's singing partner in "Boondan Boondan," Ankita Joshi, who also is essentially a classical vocalist. Speaking of "Boondan Boondan," can you tell me the language in which it's sung? Bheege Na More Pi Ki Patiya, Ho Jisme Aavan Ki Batiya, Baawri Tu Aur Tera Andesa, Saawan Piya Aavan ka Sandesa, Chal Daale Jhule Bagho Mein, Phir Mehke Mehndi Hatho Mein, Sa Sa...Sa Re Ni Sa ni dha Ni Sa ni Pa ga Ma Re Sa Ni Sa Boondan Boondan Thanks.
