Begum Akhtar The Queen of Ghazal (Rupa Charitavali Series)
Description
From The Jacket

Her voice had the seductiveness of mellow wine. When Begum Akhtar sang, she could make her audience sway to every emotion In the lyrics of a ghazal.

Once ghazals and thumris were the music of the court singers. It was Begum Akhtar's great artistry that took the music from the 'kothas' and gave it a place on the concert stage as a light classical music.

This is the captivating story of one of India's legendary musicians. Born in a family of court singers, she transformed herself from Akhtaribai Faizabadi to the revered Begum Akhtar. A singer who captured the heart of a nation by her grace and incomparable singing.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
