On 26th July Dr. Chandrakant gave a friendly performance for the Indian Army 6 Assam Regiment Commanding Officer and his subordinates in New Delhi Cantonment. He also did a jam session with the Jazz band members of the Regiment soldiers- Guitarists and Electronic Drums. After listening to him for a few minutes, one member of the audience immediately contacted Delhi Doordarhan Director General(DG) and arranged a meeting.
On 27th July when we met with the DG, she immediately contacted her staff and asked them to organize recording of Dr. Chandrakant.
On 28th July we got a call from producer of Delhi Doordarshan National Evening Live Show where Dr. Chandrakant was interviewed about healing music and his experiences. The show was telecast at 5:00 PM same evening live. It was an excellent interview and the producer later informed us that she got a lot of good feedback from the viewers and was interested in recording more of his Sitar and experiences.
