Ravi Shankar, 1920-2012
12 December 2012
It is with immense sadness that we learnt of the passing of the maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar yesterday, 11th December.
Born on April 7, 1920, Shankar is an iconic figure whose influence on music and the way we hear music can hardly be overstated. Shankar had suffered from upper-respiratory and heart issues over the past year and underwent heart-valve replacement surgery last Thursday. Though the surgery was successful, recovery proved too difficult for the 92-year-old musician.
