There was a little bit of emotion, chemistry and lots of music when Tabla Maestro Mehul Sharma got onto the stage to celebrate the power of classical music at the hall. What classical music for him is “Khudaa Ki Den”     Reporter :  Tell us a little bit about yourself sir. – I Mehul Sharma. I am from Mathura Uttar Pradesh but my Father is a music teacher in the Delhi School, so I grew up in Delhi. Since childhood, it has been a hobby of music that has caught music. Since dad is in music, so when I was five, I have been playing the tabla. I have initially learned classical tabla from my father Mr Rajesh Kumar Sharma and later by Mr Rohit Poddarji. At age of 18, to refines the art, I started learning tabla under the guidance of famous tabla exponent of farukhabad gharana – GURU Devashish Adhikariji.

What do you look at from this? – It is true that classical music is going down, but the reason is also we are. Today we see that the younger generation has abandoned their tradition and has been doing Western music more. The truth is that the real classical music is becoming extinct, but for today’s generation, a new word has come into the market, which is called fusion. It combines classical music with western music and a new music is presented, and it has started appealing to the younger generation to hear classical music.   Reporter :  Is not it against our tradition to break the music? – It is also right or not.

Mohan Ayyer had a brief chat with him. Excerpts. What inspired you to make the film ME N MY BABY ?

He is like my big brother and I would like to thank him for his strong support throughout the tenure of this entire project.

My best wishes for these three persons who really inspired me to make this feature film.     What were the experiences you encountered while making the film ME N MY BABY ? The experiences were really in a differentiating manner.

My own banks(with whom I bank with, and has given lot of business) are nationalized banks has shown least interest in the subject and were really concerned about... read more
