In this book of reminiscences and records, Savita Devi along with Vibha S. Chauhan, lovingly and painstakingly traces the journey of her mother's life - the life of the legendary Hindustani classical singer Siddheshwari Devi. The authors describe in detail Siddheshwari's rise from an uncared-for orphan in her aunt's house in Banares to a famous classical singer and recipient of the Padmashree. The book takes readers through the gamut of her life; its struggles and glories; the rich and varied styles of music of the Banares gharana that she perfected; her interactions with other artists who gave shape and colour to Indian classical music. We glimpse the birth and evolution of a brilliant singer; we travel with her through her long years of riaz under her gurus; we applaud her when she performs and reveals nuances of thumri gayaki hitherto unknown; we suffer with her in her many sorrows, rejoice with her when she tastes success both in her personal and professional life. In this exhaustive and definitive biography of a great vocalist, the authors show us closely the angst, hardships, joys and sensibilities that are at the core of a true artist. Printed Pages: 136.
