Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, one of India's best known musicians, died in San Diego Tuesday. He was 92. He had been admitted to the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla last Thursday after he complained of breathing difficulties.

He breathed his last at 4.30 p.m. Pacific Time Tuesday.

Condoling this legendary musician's death, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that Ravi Shankar was a global ambassador of India's cultural heritage and a national treasure.

"An era has passed away with Pt. Ravishankar. The nation joins me to pay tributes to his unsurpassable genius, his art and his humility," the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said in a message on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"A national treasure and global ambassador of India's cultural heritage," it added.

India's Ambassador to US Nirupama Rao tweeted: "Pandit Ravi Shankar. Mourn passing of a musical genius and gentle soul. Attended his last concert Nov in Calif. He played with such passion."

"His last concert was particularly poignant. Anoushka and he played together in perfect unison. A torch was passed," Rao said

"The music that I have learned and want to give is like worshipping God. It is absolutely like a prayer," she quoted Ravi Shankar as saying.

An era of music passed away with him. He was so talented and multi faceted.

Here is a video of his playing on his 90th birthday. Simply incredible at 90 ClapClapClap
