Dr. Meenesh Juvekar Memories

When the medical mind gets musical, the result is simply magical!

We all have known Dr Meenesh Juvekar as an excellent ENT surgeon, an exceptional teacher, and even as a good friend. However, what many of us don’t know is the fact that he is a tabla player par-excellence!

Dr. Meenesh Juvekar is the son of renowned classical singer Mrs. Neelakshi Juvekar and Dr. Ravindra Juvekar. He has received formal training in playing tabla since 25 years from Sri Gopal Koshti of Gwalior and Pandit Arvind Mulagonkar. Currently he is a disciple of Pt. Sadanand Naiyampalli.

Dr. Meenesh has given several tabla performances in India and abroad. He plays famous compositions of legendary Ustad Amir Hussain Khan Saheb with extreme ease. He represents the newer generation of tabla players who play the various bandish with their own modern touch. He is perhaps the only surgeon playing tabla professionally. People who have attended his tabla concerts are truly mesmerized by his performance and they return home with pleasant ringing of the music not only in their ears, but also their heart!
