For Ustad Bismillah Khan

Everyone who’s born has to die
But it was difficult to bid him goodbye
The Ustaad was old
But his music - sheer gold
It was magic, when he played the shehnai


The shehnai maestro, Ustad Bismillah passed away on 21st August 2006, at the age of 91. Read about it here

    Men like the Ustad never die
    And he lives on thru' his Shehnai.
    God bless this simple soul
    Who had but this one goal -
    To keep musical traditions high.
