Bhajan singer Anup Jalota remembers late Pandit Ravi Shankar as the godfather of classical music and someone who gave India and the sitar, fame across the world.

"Pandit Ravi Shankarji was the godfather of classical music. Before him, Ustad Allauddin Khan was considered the godfather and after him Pandit Ravi Shankar got the same respect," the 59-year-old said here Wednesday while launching his new album "Smaran".

Ravi Shankar died in the US Tuesday. He was 92.

"I believe he did more than he could, he made the sitar and India famous across the globe. We salute him and pray that the respect he got in this world, the same he gets in the other world also," he added.

Ravi Shankar had been admitted to the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, San Diego, US, Dec 6, after he complained of breathing difficulties.
