Vibrant Voice of Jhaverchand Meghani

     
   
 
We are aware we have, despite our best efforts, not quite succeeded in
restoring fully and faithfully original unique voice of Jhaverchand Meghani from the available recordings
which were done as far back as eight decades ago, when sound recording technique was still in its infancy.
