I am very excited about this program. My friend, Chitra and I are doing this together. I met Chitra because of my columns in Mint. She was a reader who became a friend. She is an amazing singer. So we came up with this idea and pitched it to Bangalore International Center. They accepted it; and here we are, at home, rehearsing. Chitra lived in California for many years before returning to India. She is a lovely person. We are having a great time rehearsing this. Please come if you are in Bangalore on March 14th. It will be well worth your time to hear Chitra sing. It is a FREE event.
Music– classical and film.

Sounds interesting, Shoba. I’ll be there. Is this a ticketed event?
No Charu. It is free.
Dear Shoba this is a very interesting blog. I’m enjoying your writing and wish I could be there for the classical music event! I would like to introduce you to my very close friend Kelly amen. Kelly is a brilliant interior designer and is having some textiles made in Bangalore. I am not sure he is very happy with his Bangalore contact. I thought perhaps you could help him. I think the two of you would like each other very much. May I give him your contact information? Send me some news on your girls. Emma is applying to college now and I can imagine that Ranjini is as well. Will she come to the US? When Emma is settled in college I will make my first trip to India and hope to visit you! Sending love from cold New York Jennifer

Great to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words. Coming from you– a world class opera singer, it is cherished. How are you, James, Luisa and Emma? Yes, Ranjini is applying to college now as well. Will be interesting to see where they end up. Yes of course, please give my contact to your friend, Kelly. I have been doing textile connections for many people now. So will be interesting to see what he has in mind. And yes. You must come visit me in Bangalore.
