“It gives me great pleasure to hear that your unique institution – an Institute of Dhrupad is being inaugurated on 4th Nov. 2004. It would have been my privilege and honor to be a part of the celebration but I am away in USA till end of Nov. 2004 and hence cannot make it.

However my blessings and good wishes are always with you and your institute. I hope it sets an example as a ‘guru shishya parampara’ institution and your students who are fortunate enough to be benefitted by this institution make the intstitute, its faculty and its patron proud one day.

May God give you enough strength and good luck to make it successful and set it as a monumental institute in Indian Classical Music world. My best wishes are always with you.”
