  1. It is a treat, delight and pleasure to listen to Maru Behag, on a very difficult and complicated instrument, Sarangi, and by such a young girl. It is amazing.

  2. I just came across an email of Mr. Mian Naseer Ahmed. I wonder if you happen to be one of my old friends who used to live in Pakistan and now in the US. I’ll appreciate if you could reply through the same link.
