Bansari Means “Flute” in the Hindi Language

A Bansari is a side-blown flute traditionally created from a single hollow shaft of bamboo that is between 12 inches and 30 inches in length and the thickness of a human thumb. It has six or seven finger holes. This instrument is often used in Hindustani classical music.

Admired as the most beautiful birds in the world, peacocks are the ultimate symbol of ethereal love and attraction. They are beloved because of their naive playfulness and mesmerizing colors that illustrate a sense of beauty in innocence. A feather from a peacock’s tail is widely thought to bring good luck.
