Mile sur mera tumhara…

Pandit Bhimsen Joshi passed away on 23 January 2011 and it might seem a bit late to write about him. But hoardings paying tribute to him still catch your attention all over the city. So it is really not out of place to write a few more words about him.
I am no great expert on Indian classical music but I can definitely say that Bhimsen Joshi’s Mile sur mera tumhara did more for national integration than all the Republic Day parades and speeches since Independence and Manoj Kumar movies combined together.
