Written with a deep sense of gratitude bordering on reverence, Girija: A Journey through Thumri presents Girija Devi in all her manifestations - singer, guru, householder, Bhakta. Amazingly, she manages to project herself as a very credible, flesh-and-blood person of the here-and-now world: someone who can sing breathtaking compositions with the same effortless ease as she rustles up a meal and watches an Amitabh Bachchan film. Humility and majesty, non-attachment and deep attachment: apparent contradictions fuse together to form the Girija Devi that Yatindra Mishra presents to us.
