Business mogul and nationalist Sanjay Dalmia recently hosted a Sufi night at his Tees January Marg residence. It was a soul-soothing night dedicated to the ageless rhythm and mystic tunes of Sufi music.
With its origins traced back to parts of Punjab, Pakistan, and the Middle East, Sufi music has been a timeless art form that renders a positive impact on the listeners. It is based on the idea of personifying the supreme power through music that extends beyond realistic boundaries.
Dalmia has always had great reverence for Sufi music. He deems it as an ultimate way to connect with the supreme power and his inner self.
“This Sufi night is a journey towards peace, harmony, and universal brotherhood. However, more than anything else, it connects all those who believe in the power of unconditional love, total surrender of ego, and the unity of all,” said Sanjay Dalmia, chairman of Dalmia Group.
The event was graced with the presence of various dignitaries from all walks of life. The charisma of soulful Sufi music left the listeners in awe.
Adding to the event’s vibe were mellifluous compositions of Nizami Brothers, the well-known Qawwali singers who frequently perform at the Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. They have spread the magic of Sufi music across the globe. The trio has also sung Bollywood songs like “Kun Faya Kun” of the movie Rockstar (2011).
Along with musical treat to the ears, the guests also relished authentic and scrumptious Marwari food.
Talking about the great admiration and success of the event, Mr Sanjay Dalmia said, “It gives me immense pleasure to have played host to such a gleaming lot of people who share my love for Sufi music.”
