The Legendary Indian Classical Vocalist after 89 years had come to his village- Pilli Mandori village in Fatehabad district in 2014.

Call it coincidence of something else, recently his daughter Durga Jasraj had invited musician from Fatehabad to her online music session on Zoom and introduced with her father.

A brief discussion was taken place when Pandit Jasraj was told that musician Mukesh Rahi and his son Deepash Rahi belonged to Fatehabad district.

Jasraj Came 6 Years Ago

Padmabhushan Pandit Jasraj had come to his native village Pilimandori six years ago in 2014.

People from the entire village and neighbouring had come to see him. He performed one of his favourite music composition at local village temple to entertain the audience.

During his visit, he dedicated a library in the name of his father Pandit Motiram and a park in his name.

The then Member of Parliament Ashok Tanwar had also accompanied him during this special visit.

According to the villagers, music maestro sought updates on village library couple of days before through video call session.

During the video call session, Padam Bhushan awardee had a hearty talk to his friend former sarpanch Ramchandra Bagdia for a long time.

Bagdiya said that Panditji had promised to visit to native village soon and would like to spend a day or two at the native village but destiny had something else to offer.

In 2014, when Pandjit Jasraj came the village was struggling with drinking water. The local population apprised him of the situation. The music maestro had requested the then MP Ashok Tanwar to fix the issue.

A long-pending tender of water project was soon approved and the issue of drinking water was resolved in matter of months.

A village elder said that Pandit Jasraj father had died when he was three or four years old and had shifted their base from Haryana. It was only in 2014 that Pandjit had arrived back to his roots to meet his own people in Fatehabad.
