Ustadji passed away today at the age of 91.
All though his life, he had been a very humble man whose energy and talent would always be remembered by all those who have heard him play, especially by those who have had the great fortune to have seen him play live.
SPIC MACAY national conventions would be empty without his shehnai and I am sure a lot of volunteers would miss him.
His spirit would always be with us. He is a Bharath Ratna, one that can never be replaced...
