دامِ ہر موج میں ہے حلقۂ صد کامِ نہنگ
دیکھیں کیا گزرے ہے قطرے پہ گہر ہوتے تک

दाम-ए हर मौज में है हलक़ह-ए सद काम-ए निहनग
देखें कया गुज़रे है क़तरे पह गुहर होते तक

daam-e har mauj meN hai halqah-e sad kaam-e nihang
dekheN kyaa guzre hai qatre pah guhar hote tak

in the net/snare of every wave is a circle of a hundred crocodile-mouths
let’s see what happens to the drop, until [its] becoming a pearl

Here is a music collection compiled by Aftab Datta for sarangi.info’s tenth birthday. We hope you like listening to it as much as we do.

  1. This is a fantastic amount of work done by Aftab Datta for our pleasure. And his choice is also very good. I wish to thank Aftab and to congratulate sarangi info on its 10th birthday and i hope it will reach an age of a hundred years.

  2. Wonderful collection of recordings made available for passionate classical listeners. Thank You, keep up the great work.

  3. To start such work is not easy but to sustain it with same enthusiasm even after 10 years is still tougher. Kudos to all the team members to keep the HCM alive on the globe.

  4. This is just a fabulous collection. Many congratulations to both Aftab and Sarangi info.
    Please keep up the good work. God bless… Arjun Hirani TD

    1. The links to Arnab Chakraborty, GajanRao Joshi, Govind Prasad, Mukhtar Begum Thumri Pilu, Roshan Ara Begum Shudh Sarang have problems. The music pieces cannot be found. Please correct the links

  5. It seems like yesterday, doesn’t it?! congratulations on your tenth anniversary and a special thank you to aftab and taimur for their extraordinary effort. these lovely recordings will see me thru’ our endless winter in New England. I have heard less than a third of these so far….sharafat hussain, malabika kanan my old favourites. don’t miss arnab’s superb alaap in kedar. and lots more–gopal Mishra , akhtaribai, mukhtar begum……

  6. taimur–there is something wrong with the nissar hussain bhairavi tarana link. it loops back after the first few seconds.

  7. Thanks much for sharing this beautiful collection. The Nissar Hussain link is broken. It stops playing after a few seconds.
