Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan was invited to perform in Parliament House on 7th August 2003. He was staying in a hotel in Paharganj,Delhi and was not keeping well. Though his sons were not keen on our meeting him,we waited for some time and got the opportunity of an interaction with the maestro. While talking about his life he started singing. Famous for his Shehnai,this side of him is relatively unknown. It was a pure bliss listening to melodious voice of the legend.
