Tribute to Mother

Tapan Bhatt, founder of the Harmonica Club, went through a trying times after his mother suffered a heart attack. She was kept in the intensive care unit of a hospital for more than a week before she underwent a bypass surgery.

A practitioner of hypno-therapy, Tapan diverted his attention to playing music and when among the youngest members of the Harmonica Club, Devansh Shah told him about the song 'Meri Maa' from the film 'Taare Zameen Par', Tapan started practicing the song at home.

On February 14, 2010, the Valentine Day, Tapan attended the Sunday Morning session of the Club at Parimal Garden. I had heard from Devansh and others about Tapan playing this very melodious and sentimental song. So, I persuaded him to play the song for the HCG blog. I took him to a corner of the park besides the lake and made him sit under a tree. He played on the harmonica along with the original song in the background.

Dear Tapanbhai,

Absolutely beautifully rendered with no flaws, pefectly matched the audio in background. In fact I was the first one to hear it when u played it on telephone . This is all your hard work and devotion which had forced almighly god to be on your side when your mother was passing through the difficult time at hospital.

I apologize for not having got the song or its film (should be after 1975) but sounds mellifluous and romantic. You have successfully exhibited the power of a '64 X'.

Tapan Bhai,
Very soulful rendition. Can you record it again in a closed room with a minimum chord accompaniment on piano ( keyboard). I am sure the results will do true justice to your performance.

Warm regards,
Chandrashekhar Khare
