Back to Stone Age
The Ajanta- Ellora music festival is organised annually at Ellora. The first time I experienced it was when I was a young officer at Malegaon, in 1991. The venue has the 8th century Kailashnath temple in the background. This, in my opinion, is one of the best venues for classical music because it is not an auditorium which is built of steel, cement and bricks. Here, nature itself provides the acoustics. I have heard many great artistes perform here: Hari Prasad Chaurasia, Vilayat Khan sahab, Zakir Husain sahab.
