We have been providing Music on demand and live streaming since 1997.
Back in fall 1997, Mr. Abhi Barthakur of Piscataway, New Jersey was exchanging email with fellow assamese internet users on a mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once in a while he used to send assamese songs as an audio attachment for group members to listen. Usually these attachment files was large for many mail server to handle. The last large song, that Abhi sent was a Nagra Naam about 30 min long ( Naam.wav) which triggered uproar among the mailing list members - because it was clogging up their email boxes.
This happend on November 2nd, 1997.
Abhi realized that, this act of sharing music file over email simply would NOT work !! So, he got in to work to create the first one page website (http://injersey.com/~abhi/kalpataru.htm) to share assamese music on the world wide web. Thus, on November 9th, 1997 Markin Kalpataru was born.
Abhi's wife, Alpana was reading out professional introduction and hosting the program - each weekend with 5 - 6 assamese songs, which abhi was encoding in real audio format from audio cassette, records, cds etc. Every week after week the webpage was updated with new songs and email was sent out to the mailing list asking users to visit Markin Kalpataru. Here are some of those email headers 1, 2, 3 - that still can be found on alt.culture.assam ( which was created by Abhi Barthakur on Feb 25th, 1997 by sending control messages.)
