One Less Mall, One More Hall - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

Here is him ‘aapro1’ Zubin we call,
The tallest amid few Batons tall;
‘Conduct concerts I can’t,
Good halls come far too scant’,
We know not, ‘one less mall’s one more hall’!
_____________________________________________ ___
aapro1: In Gujarati, Parsi-esq, it means our own. This is
how Zubin Mehta, a well-known conductor of western
classical orchestras, is endearingly called in India. As
true son of soil, he was concerned that there are few
halls with good acoustics needed for a large symphony
orchestra in India. He felt it was pocket money for many
of our money bags; and all we needed was desire to
have a good hall with modern acoustics. He suggested:
One less mall, and we can have one more hall.
