Dear Shyamala
 
Thank you so much for sharing your experience and I can say I can imagine and relate to it myself..I have had the pleasure of witnessing Panditji perform numerous times as we belong to Ravi Shankar Music circle..Also had previledge of getting blessings from him as well other renouned artists.  My boys were exposed to classical music at early age due to attending these concerts.  The longest concert we attended was his 70th bday celebration 2 day concert @ Pasadena, CA. I was hoping and praying for his 100th bday celebration.  Sad India and the world lost an icon yesterday who gave India a mark on the world map when it comes to music..Its a double loss for us as his son late Shubho Shankar ji was my husband's guruji..This yr India has lost many related to music-film industry.  We will cherish all the memories we have had.  God bless his soul and RIP Panditji...My Pranam to him. Cry

Dear Varsha,

Thank you for this heartfelt message.

I attended a concert by Pandit Ravi Shankar  in the Kamani Auditorium in New Delhi in 1976, when he played 5 ragas from 10 pm to 4 am. By the end of it, youngsters like me, who could not have afforded the front row seats (I was very junior in the diplomatic service then) had gone and seated ourselves on the stage, within 6-8 feet of Panditji. I never got up in all that while, and when it all ended, my legs were numb!

I went backstage, touched his feet and got his blessings. Then I went back home, with my head still full of Puriya Dhanashree, had coffee and got back to the normal routine.

I also remember the annual concerts in honour of his father-in-law, Ustad Allauddin Khan of the Maihar gharana that he and sarod maestro Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, his brother in law,  used to organise in New Delhi in November in the 1970s and 1980s,

Lastly, during his spectacular 70th birthday celebrations at the enormous Siri Fort auditorium in New Delhi, spread over 3 evenings in 1990, we similarly clung to our seats fro 6 pm to 2 am, as a galaxy of legendary artists played in tribute to him. His own performance of 2 1/2 hours on the very last night was a blaze of passion and lyricism that belied his age.

Such as he come but once in a thousand years, and I feel blessed that I could witness his genius in person.
