Hindustani vocalist

Hamne apna margdarshak kho diya (we have lost the man who showed us the path). Chirag bujh gaya (the light has faded). He understood not just the nuances of ragas but his audience and fellow artistes too. When he spoke about the art and its practitioners, it was always the way one speaks about one’s family. He was never afraid of either looking back or looking ahead. A positive thinker, I have seen him literally speaking to the ragas. Music for him was about communicating with the self and the world at large.
