Wonderful book

I came across Raga'n joshin Delhi and read about half of it. I did not finish reading it since I wanted to savor it later on. Lot of the book is available at the above link. From this review :
"In her book “Raga’n Josh – Stories from a Musical Life” (Black Kite, 2005) that combines her two earlier books “Here’s Someone I’d Like You to Meet” and “The Cooking of Music and Other Essays”, she writes about her interactions with bureaucrats and musicians, about her experience listening to some of the great masters of Hindustani Classical music and about her own thoughts on Indian Classical Music and the changes it has gone through during her times."
A write up Pungent melody: the life of Sheila Dhar by RUKAN ADVANI.
