APPRECIATIVE SENSE

One of DKP's favourite pastimes was watching cricket matches. When a batsman scores above ninety, she would call her favourite deities to bless them with a century. If her prayers are not answered, she would be in tears. This was not just for her favourite Sunil Gavaskar and GR Vishwanath but for any cricketer of the world who scored over ninety.

Similarly, she would listen to Michael Jackson’s singing with as much attentiveness as she would listen to Indian Classical music. She essentially enjoyed and appreciated the goodness in any style. She intensely listened to the voice modulation in Billy Jean and tried imitating it. Such was her unbiased love for any art or sport and also goes to show the way she got herself immersed in the moment.
