Generally our Haridasas, whileperforming the Kirtan, wear a gala and full dress. They put on a head-dress, either apheta or a turban, a long flowing coat with a shirt inside, an uparane (short dhotar) onthe shoulders and the usual long dhotar from the waist below. Dressed in this fashion forsome Kirtan in the Shirdi village, Dasganu once went to bow to Baba. Baba asked him -"Well, bridegroom! where are you going dressed so beautifully like this?" 'Forperforming a Kirtan' was the reply. Then Baba said - "Why do you want all thisparaphemalia-coat, uparani and pheta etc, doff all that before Me, why wear them on thebody?" Dasganu immediately took them off and placed them at the Baba's Feet. Fromthat time Dasganu never wore these things while performing the Kirtan. He was always barefrom waist upwards, a pair of `chiplis' was in his hand and a garland round his neck. Thisis not in consonance with the practice generally followed by all the Hardidasa, but thisis the best and the purest method. The sage Narada, from whom the Kirtan-Paddhatioriginated, wore nothing on his trunk and head. He carried a 'veena' in his hand, andwandered from place to place everywhere singing the glory of the Lord.
This seven-episode Western mini-series is a great example of how TV is attracting some of the very best feature writers. In this case, Scott Frank wrote the series exclusively for Netflix and it went on to win many awards including Outstanding Writing for a Long Form from the WGA West. 2b1af7f3a8
