...made with a sense of reverence, and the pupil seeks the guru's blessings. In the olden days, a guru usually never specified the nature of guru dakshiṇā expected from a disciple. It was left to the disciple to find out what would please the guru most. It is on record that Anjanibai Malpekar offered a few thousand rupees, a big amount in those days (1900s), which she had scraped together with great difficulty. But the guru, Aman Ali Khan of the Bhenḍi Bazaar gharānā, accepted only a token amount of one and a quarter rupees and returned the rest to her. In...

...gharānā, Hamsadhwani is a distinct gharānā heritage, so to say. The gharānā now lives on, not through any direct progeny but through some disciples of Aman Ali Khan ( 1884–1953 ) and of Anjanibai Malpekar . Aman Ali's disciples included Vasantrao Deshpande , T.D. Janorikar , Ramesh Nadkarni , and Shivkumar Shukla . Janorikar took occasional guidance from Anjanibai after Aman Ali's demise. Among others who sought her guidance was Kumar Gandharva . Indirectly, the gharānā style was one of the sources of inspiration for some vocalists such as the famous...

...one or more musicians present there. Appropriate gifts may also be offered to the guru's wife, other relatives, and also some of the seniors present on the occasion to bless the pupil. Alladiya Khan tied the ganḍā-thread on Kesarbai Kerkar's wrist and Aman Ali Khan on Anjanibai Malpekar's. Traditionally though the relationship is imbued with a pious aura even if the guru does not teach anything to the student, there are cases of silent revolt and grievance. One such instance was so open that a female disciple went to the law courts asking for a refund of...
