I must say this, but I am glad I've grown up outside India... in India, its at this weird phase of 'west vs culture'.. and when I was growing up, I would see my cousins back home being less passionate about their country than me !!

and what Abhi says about DU, thats really sad.. i mean its better here !!! I can wear a Salwar to class (When its not -40 deg!) and its not considered odd or weird...

Yeah, Madhavir. It was hard when I was young and my teachers would scream at me to focus on the classics during my performances. When I would look at the faces in the audience, I would think I wish I could perform a beatles song or do something "fun", then people would enjoy themselves more.
Now, I love my parents for forcing my sibling and I to learn some form of music and dance. This is what has kept me close to the culture.
I like your idea of incorporating the classics into a modern day style. That's a brilliant idea Thumbs Up

Thanks ranig, sareg, Madhavir ji...that was the idea of this poll...to provoke some thinking...
I do think that something innovative and radical needs to be done to reintroduce our youngsters to our musical roots and traditions....as AD rightly pointed out...this needs to be done at the school level...SPICMACAY is a step in the right direction...was actively involved in my college days but dont know how it is doing nowadays...I remember an Odissi lecdem by Kiran Segal in a boys' school...we as organisers were nervous about handling the boys as we were sure they wouldnt sit thro' it without making noise...but the wonderful lady on stage handled it so well...she got them so involved in a game where she would do some mudras and the audience had to guess what she was doing... and finally at the end of the session she asked for some volunteers to be on the stage and follow her for some basic steps...and the whole school wanted to be there...it was wonderful....
So I think the answer to this poll might as well be No...because some innovative ways of presentation, packaging, marketing...whatever u might call it...can really make a difference...keep writing in...

Oh yes ...i must share with u why I started the thread in the first place....my daughter heard KK yoodling away in a song which I was playing in the car...and she said wow...he is singing exactly like debojit...and I suddenly realised what a powerful medium TV had become!!!

Oh TV is a VERY powerful medium..especially shows like this..

For the youth of today, its this that is a medium to get in touch with old movies, old songs etc..

When I was a kid (7 - 10 yrs), I was never exposed much to classical music except wat i learnt at dance classes.. my parents rn't much into hindi music.. so never really told me about rafi or lata or kishore... i remember watching antakshari and askin my parents about the songs..n they knew a lot of them because though they weren't into that music, they had heard them when they were young..

thats y i regard antakshari a lot, i learnt how beautiful old music is!

another channel i give credit too is sony, they used to show old movies during lunch time and i used to watch it with my mom.. again got exposed to some fantastic songs..

SRGM was always a source of hearing songs..both old n new.. n hearin it in a diff voice made the difference...

thats the reason, i personally have nothing against remixes... if they are made in good taste with decent videos , they r really good..they help to rediscover old songs.. which is great !!!

i kno old songs n classical music dont necessarily go together..but wanted to share my opinions esp when u taked about visual media...
