Description: When Namita Devidayal wrote ‘The Music Room’, a book that takes the reader into the enchanting world of Indian classical music through the eyes of her teacher Dhondutai, she found that besides exploring music, she was rediscovering her own identity. So much of her life had been influenced by this quiet musical sepia-toned space. Growing up, she had a kind of cultural schizophrenia – grappling between a very traditional world and a modern western world. It is the dilemma of many Indians today as they face a society in transition. She believes that, if you are true to yourself, you can exist on many different planes at the same time.
