    I recall Rajat, back in 1968, practicing western classical music on a violin that he probably inherited. The violin was kept at my parents home at BCS and Rajat would come by, diligently clean the instrument, wax the bow strings with a special rosin, and play music for hours. Rajat, his cousin from (then) at St Stephen’s College, and I did a wonderful trek Simla – Narkanda – Hatu peak – Khadrala – Kothgarh. Stayed with the Bhalaik’s home in Kothgarh for a few days. This would have been during the “tenner’s” of June 1968 or 1969…

    RIP dear friend. You will be missed
