I live and breath music and Lucknow has always been a source of inspiration and joy for me. Especially the life and music of the courtesans of Lucknow is truly awe inspiring. In an age where women spent their life within the four walls of house or under the veils - these free spirited independent women were considered highest exponent of artistic expression and authority on etiquettes and aesthetics. Their story is still very relevant in current age and society.
This is my gift to our new generation wich, I beleive, will imbibe pride in our heritage in them.
