DAVID this is not sarangi. It is called Sarinda. Please be acurate when you represent a culture. on 2011-03-23, at 04:17:15
Johnny Utah Picture perfect! Congrats Saptak! Nice textures and framing! on 2011-03-23, at 04:27:55
Pauline Knowing nothing, I've checked both Sarangi and Sarinda. Wikipedia lists them both as Indian musical instruments, somewhat related. Neither of them looks like this one, but are similar. Any precision ? on 2011-03-23, at 06:19:54
Angshuman The Instrument is called KHAMICHA. You can see this same man playing the instrument in this youtube clipping

saptak ganguly Thanks for all your comments and regarding the confusion in the name of the instrument i think the following quote and link will clarify everything "Sarangi is a generic name, common to a variety of bowed instruments. Originally a folk instrument, the sarangi-type can be seen all over the country - sarinda, chikara, kamaicha, sindhi sarangi, gujrtan sarangi, dhani sarangi, dhadya sarangi, dedh pasli sarangi, pyaledar sarangi, and the jogiya sarangi. Instruments like the dilruba and the esraj share some physical characteristics with the classical sarangi." This is from the website "http://www.indiaheritage.org/perform/music/h-i-sg.htm". So in giving title to the photo i used the GENERIC NAME SARANGI and thanks Angshuman for the excellent video,i have heard it live and it was really inspiring. on 2011-03-23, at 11:04:35
Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (from the 1st until the 28th), among all images uploaded by our contributors, we publish a photo of the day (POTD).
Every week (on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th), among all POTDs of the preceding week, we select a photo of the week (POTW).
On the 30th we select the best POTW as photo of the month (POTM).
From May 2015 onwards we will cease to award gift certificates to Kiva and guest editorship invitations to our POTM winners. However, occasionally we may accept/address guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst. Interested? Email us at email@example.com.

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
