About the Book
Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty: Seeker of the music within is an in-depth account of the life, work and ideas of one of the most eminent vocalists of our times. The book is an outcome of an intense exchange between the incisive perspective of the author and the soul-searching memories of a musician, both weaving together into a seamless narrative of a biographical mural.

Sensitively exploring Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty's early life, including his initiation into music and the role of his gurus, his emergence as a classical singer, his unbounded approach to music, his collaborations with stalwarts of other genres, his creating a whole new language to teach music, his establishing Shrutinandan-a unique institution for imparting classical music education to young learners-and the spiritual ethos of his music, the narrative flows through the melody of his life illuminating its key moments and inspirations.

Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty: Seeker of the music within illustrates the potential that every human being carries within oneself to surpass excellence. It is the story of a person who believes that the musical note is God and that this musical bounty needs to be shared limitlessly to create a music-loving world. It is also the journey of a maestro who was not born into a gharana but has come a long way to become an institution himself.
