We need to get some permissions in place for safety during the pandemic.”
Sharing some beautiful memories of her grandfather, Shweta said, “We spoke almost every week in the last six months during the pandemic since this was the one time when we were all at home. When the pandemic struck, he was in his New Jersey home with his students and he had to stay put there.”
Shweta said “Dadu would take online singing lessons. He taught me Raags I had not learned before. We chatted and spent a lot of time together online. I remember, he called me to give blessings to my daughter who was born in February and see her for the first time on a video call.
He was so elated and I saw a big smile on his face when he saw her. Dadu and my daughter have a 90-year age gap, and he was fascinated by that,”
