Expressing his condolences over the death of Pandit Ravi Shankar, renowned Kathak dancer Birju Maharaj said that he had no words to express what he was feeling. "To say that I feel sad will be an understatement," said Birju Maharaj.
"He is an immortal personality, he took sitar to great heights on the global platform. He took great pleasure in his music. When he played you could see every note reflected on his face," he added.
