about

Pandit Ravi Shankar, the legendary Hindustani classical musician, was born into a musically-inclined Bengali family in Banaras, India. The melodious strains of his music swept across the globe, making him a unifying phenomenon of music in the East and the West. His peerless genius contributed enormously to world music traditions and led to innovative collaborations with other leading world musicians like George Harrison and Yehudi Menuhin. He is a recipient of numerous awards and titles including the Bharat Ratna, the Magsaysay, 2 Grammys and 14 doctorate degrees.In this graphic novel, join the inimitable Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar on his soul stirring journey through life. From being a sensitive, unsure young boy in the bylanes of Banaras, Shankar became one of the greatest global ambassadors of Indian music. Challenges, opportunities, hurdles, friendships, grief, joy, hard work and dedication form the mosaic of Panditji's compelling portrait. But above all, it's his belief in himself and the unmitigated surrender to his art that characterises his intense lifelong sadhna.
