About the Artiste Ustad Bismillah Khan

The Shehnai is synonymous with the name Ustad Bismillah Khan. He was single handedly responsible for making the Shehnai a centre stage classical instrument. His ancestors were court musicians thus offering him a musical environment since childhood. Khansaheb had the rare honor of performing at Delhi’s Red fort on the eve of India’s independence in 1947. He also performed at the Red Fort on the eve of India’s first Republic Day ceremony on January 26, 1950. Khansaheb had a brief association with movies. The melodious sound of the Shehnai in the film Goonj Uthi Shehnai is highly memorable even after all these years. Bharat Ratna the highest civilian award was bestowed upon Khansaheb in 2001.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
