The Magic in my Finger
If Roohi's mischievous brother doesn't attend sitar practice, then Baba won't take him to the market. And Roohi won't get the kite that she so badly wants!
Can Roohi keep Baba from losing his temper? Loosely based on the childhood of renowned surbahar player Annapoorna Devi, this is a charming tale about how a young girl discovers the magic in her fingers in more ways than one.
