ASHA BHOSLE ON PADMA VIBHUSHAN PANDIT JASRAJ JI

"I am deeply saddened by the unfortunate demise of Pandit Jasraj ji... I have lost someone who was extremely fond of me, I have lost a big brother indeed! _Sangeet ka sooraj doob gaya!_ He was a vocalist par excellence and I knew him for so long... Even before his marriage to V Shantaram's daughter. He used to praise me a lot and he always used to say "_Main tujhe gaana sikhaunga!”


Back in the day, when I had visited his classical school in the US, where he used to teach music to so many aspiring talents, I remember how I had wanted to enrol myself into his school because he was that good! On that same trip, we'd gone out for dinner, and Jasraj ji, who was a staunch vegetarian, kept requesting me to also turn vegetarian for health reasons.


I will always remember his childlike demeanor.


May his soul rest in peace!"
