Legendary Musician & a Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar passed away in San Diego, US on Tuesday evening. He was 92. He was admitted to the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla when he complained of breathing last Thursday. He breathed his last at 4.30 p.m. Pacific time

 

The Prime Minister has condoled to demise of the musician who was the global ambassador of India's cultural heritage.

According to an official statement issued by The Ravi Shankar Foundation, he suffered from upper-respiratory and heart issues over the past year and underwent heart-valve replacement surgery last Thursday. Though the surgery was successful, recovery proved too difficult for the 92-year-old musician.

His wife and daughter, Sukanya and Anoushka Shankar said in a joint statement, "It is with heavy hearts we write to inform you that Pandit Ravi Shankar, husband, father, and musical soul, passed away today. As you all know, his health has been fragile for the past several years and on Thursday he underwent a surgery that could have potentially given him a new lease of life. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the surgeons and doctors taking care of him, his body was not able to withstand the strain of the surgery. We were at his side when he passed away."
