Zakir Hussain, talking about his association with Ajivasan, reveals, “my association with Suresh bhai, Guruji (Jiyalalji) and the institute dates back almost 40 years. My father and Guruji are from the same region of India and were very close friends and colleagues, myself and Suresh bhai competed in music competitions since we were teenagers. Suresh bhai has presented to Guruji an unparalleled guru dakshina He not only carried on his Guru’s teachings but has also immortalised his presence in the form of Ajivasan; one of India’s finest institute of art learning. I feel blessed to be a part of this celebration.”
Dr. Suresh Wadkar said, “It is our goal to connect with individuals and confer traditional music learning in all its immaculateness to all music lovers and fans, crosswise over age gatherings. This is Guruji Acharya Jialalji’ century festivity and we have legends performing this year. We at Ajivasan try to make each melodic program an exceptional one for our understudies and the gatherings of people. In opposition to prevalent thinking that traditional music is losing its observers base, the accomplishment of our projects a seemingly endless amount of time demonstrates that there is a perceiving group of onlookers for established music as well as that established music holds its interesting position in the Indian expressions”.
