At dusk when musical notes were breezing it seemed as if nature with all its youthfulness had set in the campus of ITM University, Gwalior. It was the occasion of the 1st day of Megh Malhar which is organized every year in ITM University Gwalior.
The two days classical music program was inaugurated by Shri Raj Kumar Jain, and Mr. & Mrs. Bharat Jain by lighting the lamp after which the advisor to chancellor of ITM University, Gwalior, Dr. R.D. Gupta and Mrs. Gupta along with noted Ghazal writer Madan Mohan Danish gave a floral welcome to all the artists.
The artist of the event was the well known classical singer, Pandit Ajay Pohankar who is also famous for acts of fusion. The hit fusion song ‘Piya Bavari’ was composed by him and his son Abhijeet Pohankar. He believes that raagas are the pure form of music because they do not need words to convey their message.
"Without rhythm singing is not possible. Creation of music depends upon rhythm," says Senior Musician Pt. Ajay Pohankar. Born on 24th February, 1947 in Jabalpur (MP), Pandit Ajay Pohankar has contributed significantly to "Indian Classical Music" and his efforts helped "Indian Classical Music" to touch the height of sky. He is one of the greatest Indian actors who live their life only for music.
The second day of "Megh Malhar" Sania Patankar renderred her audience spellbound with her classical singing. The performance was held at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia auditorium ITM University, Gwalior. She adds, "Classical music refreshes heart and soul. Youth should adopt it. Parents should motivate their children so that more and more youth should associate with classical music".
