Salutes to the maestro

This day is truly a sad one as one of India's best known musicians , the Shehnai maestro Ustad Bismillah Khan, passed away. A man who has spent more than 80 years of his life contributing pure music to the world, he was awarded the Bharat rathna for his achievemnts and dedication to music. To the younger generation[which includes me], he and his contributions may be unknown. And coupled with that, the Central Government ignored him on many occasions.
He was not one to go after luxury and lived in his adopted city, the holy varanasi till his death....
I bow my head before the memories of this great man...
I dedicate A.R.Rahman's Yeh jo desh hai tera[ shehnai version] to the departed soul....

your crusader, Praveen
