Chhandayan Virginia Chapter

Chhandayan Virginia Chapter Chhandayan Virginia chapter Chhandayan was born in 1984 in Calcutta, India; our main activity was to promote young talent, giving opportunities to perform on public platforms together with outstanding veterans.

This mission was fulfilled through quarterly sessions of small concerts culminating in an annual festival at a bigger venue with the audience members ranging from 1,000 to 3,000. In 1998 Chhandayan got re-established in the USA as a not-for-profit organization, first operating in the state of New York as a small organization limited to offering classes and occasional small-scale concerts.

The late Pandit Ramesh Misra, is world-renowned as having been a master of the sarangi, the bowed, short-necked stringed instrument from India. He was a recipient of India’s most prestigious Sangeet Natak Akademi Puraskar and the Sangeet Natak Award of Uttar Pradesh and has been honored with numerous other awards including the Jhadhu Bhatta award from West Bengal. Both as soloist and accompanist, Pandit Ramesh Mishra traveled all over the world performing with internationally renowned artists. He can be heard in many music productions including Ravi Shankar’s Live in the Kremlin and the Grammy nominated album Legacy, produced by the legendary Ali Akbar Khan. He was also a participating artist in the production of the “Concert for George” at Royal Albert Hall in London and recorded on Aerosmith’s much acclaimed album Nine Lives. He is profoundly missed by those who were close to him as well as the music community at large.

"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind"- Mahatma Gandhi.
Today marks the 152nd birth anniversary of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi also known as Mahatma Gandi, the man who is remembered for his composure, vigour and kindness in the face of oppression.
Chhandayan recalls Gandhi not just for his passionate devotedness to the practice of non-violence and imperial humanism, but as the benchmark against which we assess men and women in social life, political ideas and government policies, and the expectations and desires of our shared planet.

Friends,

As we are approaching the date of this event, scheduled on such a significant day, on which twenty years from now the entire human race entered into a new era, we realize how much of an important role this event can play in helping the attendees. The positive effect of Indian Music, Yoga and Meditation on the human body and mind is proven and globally acknowledged. Chhandayan is blending these three elements together for the first time in this unique program, as India's most effective tools towards restoration of physical and mental balance. The program is designed on ancient observations, documented in the available texts.

There will be three sets of 75 minutes, with 15 minutes breaks in between.
1st session - on the Immune system (physical and mental),
2nd session - on Agony and Anguish (three types of them), and
3rd session - Rest, Relaxation and Rejuvenation (physical, mental and spiritual)
Yoga and Meditation guided by RAJASHREE
Music performed by Steve Gorn (flute), Sanghamitra Chatterjee (voice), Abhik Mukherjee (sitar) and Dibyarka Chatterjee (tabla).
Please note that all attendees will be required to follow the COVID protocols. They are being updated on our website.
Please inform us of any special conditions you may have.
Please wear white, decent and comfortable attire.
Please bring your own Yoga mat, cushion and towel, if needed.
Beverage will be served during the breaks, and authentic, nutritious Indian vegetarian dinner will be served at the end.
More information at our website.

This event is encouraged and supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, with a view to recover from the present situation. Hope you can join and benefit. All COVID protocols will be properly followed.

Hope to see you.
Regards
Samir Chatterjee

Friends,

Today at 1.10 pm (Kolkata time), we lost tabla maestro Shubhankar Banerjee to COVID. He was in his 54th year, one of the finest musicians and individuals we saw in our time, growing up and heading towards the pick.

I don't know if there is a need for me to say anything further to that. Anything I may say now won't make any sense, even to me. All my senses, my intellect have gone numb in shock. There is plenty of evidence available at your fingertips about his excellence.

It is beyond sadness, beyond all feelings. There is no point calling for justice. No point in learning to accept and absorb. There is no alternative, no detour to this dead-end. It is a termination, a terribly untimely one. To my memory, the last time we had to deal with a similar situation was on January 27th, 1986, when we lost Pt. Nikhil Banerjee at the same age.

From Chhandayan, I declare it as A Day of Mourning, A Day of Silence, A Day of Meditation and Prayer.

Pranam
