After touching hearts of music lovers with his performance in Kolkata, Bhattacharya has now left for a long tour of Europe and followed by USA. 

The maestro played Charukeshi which exemplified a sense of loss and melancholy. 

Charukesi is known to incite feelings of pathos and devotion in the listener.
