Grace Per­son­i­fied

Society - - PRIVILEGED INFORMATION -

Sarod mae­stro us­tad am­jad ali khan’s tal­ented and adorable sons ayaan and amaan ali ban­gash have cer­tainly in­her­ited their fa­ther’s hu­mil­ity and grace, apart from, of course, his great looks! their re­cent Face­book post vin­di­cates this point. Re­cently, the sangeet natak akademi an­nounced them as the re­cip­i­ents of the Us­tad bis­mil­lah khan Yuva Puraskar for 2017. at a time when most peo­ple want to just lap up any du­bi­ous award that comes their way, it was rather big of the duo to re­nounce this pres­ti­gious one. their ar­gu­ment made sense, con­sid­er­ing that they have been per­form­ing on var­i­ous na­tional and in­ter­na­tional plat­forms for years now and can hardly be con­sid­ered in the Yuva (youth) cat­e­gory. their post read, ‘While ev­ery award is a great achieve­ment and an hon­our es­pe­cially for an artist, we will not be able to ac­cept the Us­tad bis­mil­lah khan ‘Yuva’ Puraskar for the Year 2017 in the field of Mu­sic which has been an­nounced with­out OUR con­sent by sangeet natak academy at this stage of our lives. af­ter serv­ing the world of mu­sic for over twenty five years, we have been very blessed to have re­ceived many re­wards from mu­sic lovers but there are many young mu­si­cians who de­serve this award more than us. grat­i­tude to all the revered com­mit­tee mem­bers (sic). ku­dos to the ban­gash broth­ers for such a self­less move.
