Ustad Bismillah Khan Sahib passes away.

The maestro of Shehnai and one of the jewels of Indian classical music - Ustad Bismillah Khan Sahib passed away today morning at approx. 2am.

I offer my tributes to the great soul. Unfortunately, i dont see a successor to his great legacy which further saddens me. He shall always remain for me - the Ustad!

In his memory, i will be contributing to his info page on wikipedia. May his soul rest in peace.
