Bibi Jaswant Kaur ji sang on 13th January at Mata Sundri Gurdwara. She sang two shabads in Raag Basant and one in Raag Malhar.Though the Basant is when the mind blossoms like a flower on meeting 'The Lord' and malahar is to be sung when his love is showered on this dry parched mind. Outward seasons have little to do with those blessed with his love. They can enjoy Basant or Malhar whenever they communicate with him. But for sinners like me these flowers and raag Basant together can do wonders! similarly Rain with raag Malhar can mesmerize me...
