Anyone has any suggestion how to repair a tear near the very rim of the Ravanhatta about the size of the tip of the little finer? Is there way to avoid reheading the skin parchment because it will be a major operation. Thanks.

I'm sorry - I don't have an answer to your question about how to repair the skin on the Ravanhatta, but I am curious as to where you managed to get a Ravanhatta....I have fallen in love with this instrument and the music played on it...Did you go to Rajasthan or did you find a store to order it from? thanks in advance!
