Rajat Kar used to offer around a dozen interpretations for each line of poetry at the Bhanja Jayanti celebrations in Cuttack. Being a school-goer then, it was not possible to comprehend them all. This year's SAHMAT celebration on January 1st was on Faiz, and I missed out on the meaning of most of the recitations. Musical renditions, however, were amply rewarding. [TNM]
