Santoor Ashram, situated in a remote village of Howrah, is the only of it's kind of music school, which provides residential Gurukul, mainly for the underprivileged musicians from different parts of India. Some of Tarun Bhattacharya's students from other countries keep coming to learn from the maestro, when he is in India.
Talking about the cyclone, Mr Bhattacharya said, 'My heart goes to each and every person affected by the unprecedented storm. The Ashram, which was build in over 20 years, with some very precious trees and plantations, has been severely affected apart from the boundary walls.
'The material loss, aside the trees and plants, were like my children with whom I used to spend a lot of time whenever I visited the Ashram. For 3-4 days a week, I would do my riyaaz in the midst of these greenery.
'I seem to have lost my soul, but I shall, with the help and generosity of all music patrons, rebuild the Ashram from \\\\scratch,' signed off the maestro.
