Kathachitra Publications

'Bajanaam?' is an honest effort to document the social and political landscape of the Indian sub-continent after the first Great War for freedom from British rule and just before the Delhi Durbar in 1911. At another level, the volume tries to contextualize the history of Hindustani music at a very crucial juncture – the bowing out of the individual patron and the plebianization of the kotha through the easily available records.
