Saraswati Music College and its countless memories

The splendid events that people will long remember took place on the 28e September 202. It was the eve of the Indian Film Festival in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and the completion of 98 successful years of Saraswati Music College, New Delhi, India. Founded by Shri Bansilal Kapoor, the college has pioneered Indian and Western music while serving its belief in making young people the best version of themselves. These 98 years of the institute have been nothing less than a journey of cultural fusion and pride for the founder and his family.

Music as a legacy was passed down to Vibhor Saini from his grandfather Shri Bansilal Kapoor. He definitely did justice to that legacy by adding it with his dedication and determination to music. He inaugurated his studio “Katharas Audio Studio” and “Katharas Video Studio” in 2007, in the same building as the college. Asked about it, he exclaimed how the studio would serve as a venue for some of the best and latest music technology and go alongside the acoustic and aesthetic aura.

The delicious occasion of the 98e anniversary was marked by two superb outings, amazing performances and was honored by the presence of eminent dignitaries and celebrities. Mr. Purushottam Rupala, Minister of the Union, Govt. from India, Mr. Randhir Kapoor (Indian actor, director, producer), Mr. Rahul Rawail (film director), HE Dilshod Ashatov, Ambassador of Uzbekistan to India, Dr Alisher Djabbarov (industrialist from Tashkent) and from other prominent businessmen from India and representatives of the Embassy of Uzbekistan graced the occasion with their presence and set an exemplary example of how we are united on all fronts, including our culture . Mr. Purushottam Rupala enlightened everyone from his point of view when he spoke about Indo-Uzbek relations and said: “India and Uzbekistan are civilizational friends who have been brought together not only by geography, but also by the community of cultural heritage and harmonious links over the centuries.

Along with this, the first launch of the evening was a poetic masterpiece by Vipul Saini, painter and writer by choice and curator at Art Sastra Gallery, Saraswati’s music school by profession. His book is called “Udta Phire Hai” and is an alluring collection of poetic quotes and poetry.

The second launch was made by none other than the most beloved actor, producer and director, Mr. Randhir Kapoor. He too followed in his brother’s footsteps, actor Late Shri Rishi Kapoor and launched the 4e volume of Vibhor Saini’s album, “Singing Strings of Vibhor Saini”. Since the first three albums were released by his brother, he felt nostalgic and explained how the albums contained songs by their father, actor Late Shri Raj Kapoor, and were a delight to audiences from all of Central Asia.

The highlight was the Saraswati Music College event must be musical, and hence, it was an enjoyable performance by the college students and a touching performance by Vibhor Saini that left everyone in awe.
