    Among some of the greatness of Pandit Ravi Shankar is the effort he made, in association with those Pop immortals the Beatles and others, to secure a fusion of the fine features of ancient Indian classical music with that of the sweet features of the highly developed Western Music. Thus he also contributed to the consciousness he created in the West of the inherent wealth of the music of the Indian sub-continent.
    The product that flowed from this alingment enriched both cultures.

    There is a lesson for us all working towards Sinhala-Tamil rapprochement where we must build on the uniting and postive features in our history, culture and interaction forsaking the lesser and more divisive features that stand in the way. This, I realise, is easier said than done. But surely there is no harm in making an effort even at this late stage.

    It is sad; but the moment of truth has come by. He was a gift of the GOD to the world and I believe that GOD lived in him to show us how both could together bring joy and peace to the world. He is a LEGEND in the true sense of the word.

    Thank you. You have given us a great GIFT – that is your daughter Anoushka Shankar.

    May you attain NIBBANA.

    The legend that Pandit Ravi Shankar created is immortal. His music draws us of the infinity of kindness and love in humanity and traverses between GOD and HUMANITY. May this great man attain nibbana.
