Kathak Kendra- 1967 to 1969- Kathak, Tabla, Hindustani vocal
I have a very clear memory of standing in front of Maharaji and Keshav Kothariji, who was then the Director of Kathak Kendra. Mohammed Jan on *sarangi* accompanied my audition, which consisted simply of my showing what I had learned from Gina Lalli. I had never considered what would happen if I were not accepted, but fortunately I was accepted. And so, to put it simply, I became the life-long student of Maharaji, the late Padma Vibhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj.
