Sheila Dhar`s autobiographical stories, essays and memories are classics of modern Indian prose. An accomplished singer, the world she inhabitated included renowned north Indian classical musicians such as Begum Akhtar, Siddheshwari Bai, Fayyaz and Niaz Ahmed Khan, Kesar Bai Kerkar, Bade Ghulam Ali Khan and Bhimsen Joshi. No writer has ever conveyed the ethos of this world and the quirk of its denizens with such wit, irreverence, perceptiveness and empathy.
