On September, I joined the Centre on Studies in Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, as a visiting professor. During my short stints, I will be engaging in an Analytical Study of Literature on Gurbani Sangeet be it written (books, manuscripts, monographs, etc.) or recorded performances on a/v platform.
On October 18, 2012, I went to document the Gurmat Sangeet Utsav 2012, which is organized by the Department of Gurmat Sangeet, Punjabi University, Patiala. There were nine performances to analyze which, I set up a Review Committee some very illustrious elders such as Pandit Tejpal Singh (Singh Bandhu), Bhai Sikandar Singh Bagrian, Dr. B. S. Rattan, Bhai Balbir Singh Ragi, Bhai Narinder Singh Banarsi, Bhai Narinder Singh and artist Hardev Singh to name a few. I convened the first meeting of the review committee on November 7, 2012 at the Centre. There was also a programme in the evening focusing on the percussion system of the Gur-darbar in which Harbhajan Singh Dhariwal, Parminder Singh Bhamra, Dr. Murli Manohar and I played pakhawaj, tabla and Jori-pakhwaj, respectively.
