Sitar Suppressed - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

What the world guessed for long got the voice:
A gifted wife had had no fair choice;
And what the affront was?
Louder she drew applause!
Sad, ego played spoil-sport to world joys.
________________________________________ _______________
There were inklings, and hushed up tunes in musical circles,
and the world for decades had wondered. What was guessed has
now got the voice. The sitar maestro, Ravi Shankar’s first wife
Annapurna Devi, his guru’s daughter, has now admitted that she
retired from public life because her husband didn’t like that she
drew forth more applause than him. How sad! A gifted sitar has
gone muted, silent but singing still.
