The Legend of Music passes away


Bharat Ratna Pandit Ravi Shankar , who is universally known as the impersonation of Sitar and the one who bridged the distance between East and West with his mesmerizing and heavenly aura of Music , has breathed his last .

The world of music , in deed , became poorer with his loss.

Apart from the loss of such a musical genius, we Bangladeshis also lost a true friend of us, for the concert he (along with George Harrison) organized during our liberation war in 1971 - the 'Concert for Bangladesh' in Madison Square Garden, NY.

The musicians performed were - George Harrison, Ringo Star, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and of course, Ravi Shankar with another maestro Akbar Ali Khan.
