The world will Miss Pt. Ravi Shankar: Smt. Chandresh Kumari Katoch

Minister of Culture, Smt. Chandresh Kumari Katoch deeply mourned the death of Pandit Ravi Shankar, one of India’s greatest musicians ever. Terming his passing away as a great loss to the country, she highlighted his singular contribution to the work of music, especially the bridges he built between the East and the West as a rare musical genius.

“In a profound sense, the unfolding of Pandit Ravi Shankar’s work as a musician and as a composer has been an essay in harmony, a progression of triumphant chords that have assimilated the local with the national, and the national with the global”, she said.

A recipient of several awards, he received the highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna. The first Tagore Award for Cultural Harmony, 2012 was also bestowed upon him for his outstanding contribution and achievements in the field of Culture.

“In the history of Indian music, the mesmerizing history-maker will go down as one who preserved India’s music through changing times, and gave it a fresh and new lease of life”, the Minister added.
