A laadli shagird remembers Ustad Barkat Sidhu - part 2

Although the legendary sufiana singer, Ustad Barkat Sidhu isn't with us anymore, but his musical genius and his legacy will live on, through his well trained disciples (shagirds).


Here is the second part of our very special interview with Taruni Sood, who tells us that she was Ustad ji's most "laadli shagird". She reflects on what life lessons she's learnt from her Guruji, tells us how Barkat Sahib learnt to read and write by spreading ashes on the floor and by practicing "oorha" "airrha" himself.... most of all, Taruni pledges to keep her Guruji's memory, and his dreams, alive.
