Postal Stamp Name : KUNDAN LAL SAIGAL
Stamp Information : He received no orthodox musical training yet he sang his way into perple's hearts. A Sufi mystic, Salman Yusuf of the Yesevi Sect, is believed to have bestowed on him the rare gift of taking music beyond the reaches of tone and rhythm into the realm of meditation and self-realisation. Such was the magic generated by the legendary voice of KundanLal Saigal. This was the son born on 4 April 1904 to Amar Chand Saigal & Kesar Devi. His father wanted him to study but Kundan Lal was an indifferent student. The "zikr" & "riaz", imparted by the Sufi pir to whom his mother took him, was what led him to follow his star. He was most truly a "pilgrim of swara". His voice had a quality where one could discern no divide between speech and melody.
