Happy Deepotsav to All !!!

May the Light of Deepawali illuminate our lives with bliss, peace and prosperity ??

Best wishes for a Happy Durga Pooja to all Bengali friends !!!

Over the years, I have presented Bengali songs at various functions, including Durga Pooja celebrations. Here are three of those songs, the recorded versions of which were available for uploading on YouTube ....
I had learnt the two Ravindra Sangeet songs in this playlist (Tari Te Paa Dee Nee .... and Tumi Kemon Kore Gaan Koro He Guni ....) from Mrs. Sucheta Roy - I call her Kakimaa. I learnt and presented with her, quite a few very beautiful Bengali songs - Ravindra Sangeet, Aadhunik songs, etc. and some good Hindi Bhajans at various Bengali Festival functions in Vadodara, as also in other programmes .... My regards to her ???? and to the revered memories of Late husband - Roy Kaku ???? and lots of love to her two wonderful daughters ??

The third song, a prayer - Bissho Pita Tumi He Prabhu .... is a childhood memory. I had learnt it from my Guitar teacher (Late) Mrs. Ruma Mitra when I was eight or nine years old, to present it with a group of kids performing in the Durga Pooja Function at the BRPL Township (Dhaligaon, Assam) .... I was the only non-Bengali and probably the youngest member of the group, much loved as well as envied for the free pampering I was bestowed upon by my teacher ??

Reflections ....

Prime Minister Narendra Modi celebrates Birthday in the Narmada Valley ....
Happy Birthday, PM ??????????
Namaani Maa Narmade ????
Narmade Sarvade, Narmade Sarvade ???? #HappyBdayPMModi #happybirthdaynarendramodi #HappyBirthdayModi #HappyBirthdayPMModi

साक्षरता का मेरा पहला पाठ हिन्दी वर्णमाला का था । अनोखी बात यह है कि मेरी मातृभाषा गुजराती है, मेरी पढ़ाई अंग्रेज़ी माध्यम में हुई और मैंने सर्वप्रथम पढ़ना-लिखना हिन्दी में सीखा !!! ?? - अ से अनार, आ से आम, इ से इमली, ई से ईख .... ??
गुजरात से दूर, केन्द्रीय विद्यालय में अभ्यास के दौरान गुजराती पढ़ना-लिखना सीखने का मुझे अवसर नहीं मिला और न ही मुझे गुजराती का पाठ्यक्रमीय शिक्षण मिला । मैं छठी कक्षा में आई तब हिन्दी से गुजराती के साम्य को जान-समझकर हिन्दी के माध्यम से जब मैंने स्वयं ही गुजराती पढ़ना-लिखना सीख लिया, तब मुझे ख़ुशी के साथ-साथ यह एहसास हुआ कि मातृभाषा सीखना हमारे लिए स्वाभाविक रूप से सरल होता है ।
हिन्दी से मुझे विशेष लगाव रहा है । अच्छी, शुद्ध उच्चारण से सजी, शब्दों के मधुर प्रवाह सी हिन्दी बोली-बातें-वार्तालाप सुनकर बड़ी प्रसन्नता होती है । हिन्दी को भारत की एकता को सँजोए रखते हुए देखा है, महसूस किया है और इस अनुभव के कारण हिन्दी और अधिक प्यारी लगती है ।

हिन्दी दिवस / हिन्दी पखवाड़े की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें !!!
