The missing Naina Devi connection

Sri Debdas Mukherjee, husband of Smt Paromita Mukherjee, has been kind to point out that this year’s VSK Baithak Purab Ang Gayaki Utsav was dedicated to the memories of late Smt Naina Devi, the thumri legend.

For reference, here is a Times of India Crest article on Naina Deviji.

We thank Mr Mukherjee for pointing out this significant omission. We also thank him for his appreciation of our report on this festival, and at present it seems we are the only one in Calcutta who did it this year.
