Souls of My City: Harmonium man

The sound of harmonium resonates across a narrow alley in Ason throughout the day. Rup Narayan Shah, 54, is responsible for the constant buzz. He plays and repairs harmoniums in a shop his father Shree Krishna Thaka Shah established 33 years back. “I have a different connection with music. It has become a part of my life. By repairing and selling instruments, I have been able to sustain my life,” said Shah. The harmonium man learned to play and mend harmoniums from his father.
