    It’s indeed significant that this time, Cadenza will happen on SIlpi Diwas, honouring artistes. THis was the birth date of cultural icon Jyoti Prasad Agarwala, himself a multi-faceted cultural practitioner who believed in a syncretic value system. Promiti, who is taking this instrument, the piano, forward in Assam through her scintillating performances and her dedicated teaching, is surely a symbol of the best of our syncretic traditions.
