(d) Ostad was nowhere to be seen.

(c) I request you to sing such a song that I will experience unmatched joy.

(i) Tansen sings to please the earthly king but Ostad devotes his songs to God.



Write the reason in your own words.

Akbar strongly desired to hear Ostad sing.



SOLUTION

Akbar was spellbound by Tansen's Deepak Rag. He could only imagine how great his teacher would be and what heavenly joy one would experience through his songs. So Akbar strongly desired to hear Ostad sing.



Akbar had to dress like a slave.


SOLUTION

Spellbound by Tansen's Deepak Raga, Akbar could only imagine how great his teacher would be. So he wished to hear his teacher's song. Tansen explained that Ostad lives in a cave in the Himalayas and rejects earthly wealth and dislikes earthly kings. So Akbar did not mind if he had to dress as a slave to experience heavenly joys of the Ostad' s sound.



After the song, Ostad had vanished.


SOLUTION

Before Akbar could return from his heavenly dream and praise Ostad for his singing, Ostad had vanished as he did not wish to be praised by them. He sang only for the Gods and so found earthly applause and awards unworthy.



Ostad’s song was more elating than Tansen’s songs.


SOLUTION

Tansen sang to please the king whereas Ostad sang to please God. Tansen sang for the king and so his songs could only provide earthly pleasure. Ostad would devote his songs to God which filled his songs with divine joy, making it more elating than Tansen's songs.



What message does the poet wish to convey through this narrative poem, ‘Tansen’?


SOLUTION

The message the poet wishes to convey through this narrative poem "Tansen" is he explains our condition of today. In music, in painting, in poetry man's first thought is, "How will it be? What will people say of it?" When inspiration is sacrificed to the material world how can the soul ever dance? In his attachment to the external world, man has lost touch with his own self. 

As a man grows, the more he is successful in worldly affairs, the more he loses contact with his inner being. For a truly harmonious existence, one has to connect to his soul and through it to God. It is then that magic will unfold in one's life.



Summarise this poem in your own words in 8 to 10 lines, highlighting only the main points.


SOLUTION

The poem tells us about an incident that happened in Emperor Akbar's court. Tansen, the famous singer from Akbar's court once sang Deepak Raga (the song of fire) so intensely that he was himself engulfed in this musical fire. It was only when a maiden was summoned to sing the Malhar raga (the song of rain) did Tansen's health recovers. Emperor Akbar was extremely pleased by Tansen's song praised him and desired to listen to his teacher's song. So they travelled to the Himalayan cave where Ostad resided, dressed as poor slaves, and pleaded to the Ostad for a song. The Ostad then enchanted them with the Malkaous raga and bestowed bliss to Akbar's soul. But as Akbar returned from his enchanted dream to praise Ostad, he found him gone. Tansen then explained that he cannot recreate the magic of Ostad because he is used to singing for earthly kings but the Ostad aims to please God and therefore possesses a certain magical prowess that none can attain.
