Indeed it would be quite a musical atmosphere where Gulzar Sahab will introduce his favourite songs with poetry and they would be sung by known singers like Hrishikesh Ranade, Swarada Gokhle & Jitendra Abhyankar to the live orchestra. The evening promises to be a memorable one as this is Gulzar Sahab’s first ever trip to North America and each and everyone present will be carrying home memories to be cherished forever.
