Granny’s first division in vocal music exam !
In 1934, (ie 80 years ago) the Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad issued this certificate stating that my paternal grandmother Rameshwari Devi Goel passed the 4th year examination in Vocal Music with a 1st division !
my nephew Raghav found the certificate carefully packed away with other papers in the attic at our home in the hills. There’s a strange thrill in finding something like this.
Dear Shubha ji
This is something priceless! Old things have a unique charm of their own and when we see them now, it is a lovely experience altogether!
