…along with his dad, mom, and twenty-one (declared) siblings
Now Acharya Somuchidononanda Pandey and this blogger have had long, deep discussions of an undisclosable nature on matters concerning world peace, foreign policy and Valentina Demetrieva, his erudite wife. Dr Pandey, as many of you might know, is Stolichnov’s father. Ustad Stolichnov Satyaranjit Pandey, as many of you might also know, hails from the Zagreb gharana of Hindustani classical music, and is the only known person who can play all string instruments known to man (and most of those known to woman).
Dr Pandey senior is known to disclaim knowledge of ever having a son named Stolichnov Satyaranjit. But that’s their internal family matter and doesn’t concern us.
