Singing Bhajans – devotional songs, have been an integral part of my family. It was a ritual, a daily practice even, when we were kids. In my community (the GSB – Gowd Saraswat Brahmans) this used to be a common practice in my father’s generations. In the evening when the lamps were lit, there would be a short session of Bhajans.
For me, it started off as an unwanted discipline and chore that I couldn’t avoid, to now something I genuinely enjoy and is one of my favourite things to do.
