Pandit Ravi Sankar a real friend

Indian iconic Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Sankar died on 12/12/12 in San Diego, USA at the age of 92. During the time of our Liberation War in 1971, Pandit Ravi Sankar arranged the Concert for Bangladesh at Madison Square Garden, New York, USA along with American singer-cum-guitarist George Harrison, Bob Dylan and others. The concert not only raised fund for Bangladesh but was also a great way to generate world support for Bangladesh. He received Padmavushan, Grammy, Doctorates, Deshikottom, etc awards. He has left world but he will live in the hearts of all Bangladeshis forever.
