It is said, that some people are gifting you something invaluable by their mere presence. Their very presence is a bliss. They do not need to do anything to enrich us. There presence does it for us. Hariprasad Chaurasia is one such personality on this globe. The fact that he just is helps me a lot. And, when such people do something, when they gift something, it is the most wonderful thing one can imagine of.
There is a very lovly Raga, named Kala Ranjani in Indian Classical Music created by Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. The Raga was actually made for Osho and gifted to him by Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia on the birthday of Osho.
This raga is not a gift presented to Osho, but a boon for the whole humanity. I know, people are going to think that I am exaggerating. But, I do not care, I am ready to take this blame of exaggeration on me. Atleast for me, this Raga is a gift, a boon.
I have a very beautiful recording of the same performance in which Hariprasad Chaurasia offered this Raga to Osho. On tabla it is accompanied by Ustad Zakir Hussain. The Raga is indeed profound. If one is on a spiritual way, the Raga can help him a lot. A perfect cup of tea for a seeker!
