What a wonderful musical “Rebel Girls” interaction with Pandita Anuradha Pal, the first female professional Tabla virtuoso in the World! The children got a glimpse into her life and how she was relentless in her pursuits. Two of the girls even got a chance to play the tabla… The children couldn’t stop the questions, completely mesmerized… their admiration growing as fast as her fingers moved across the tabla! Thank-you Anuradha Palji!
