I remember to have read about him long back in a magazine. Once, Ravishankarji was giving a concert in Mumbai. At that time. Maharashtra's Governor Mr. Ali Yavar Jung entered the Auditorium, sat in first row , lighted a cigar and started enjoying the smoke with crossed legs. Maestro noticed this and got upset. He abruptly stopped playing sitar and told Mr. Jung " You ! man! Throw that nasty thing (Cigar) away. Music is divine " . Such was his passing for music !

Neyveli Santhanagopalan’s music has a continuing appeal, as was seen at his recent concert for Hamsavinodhini. »
