Has anyone in music ever been both so prolific and so superb during an equivalent span as Ravi Shankar? His splendid body of work not only caused Indian Classical Music & artists that would’ve otherwise been ignored to get more attention; he also changed forever the ears of the Beatles & Rock n Roll listening public. His music transcended trends and cultural barriers. Shankar was rightly described as "the godfather of world music" by Beatle George Harrison, one of his closest friends and eager disciple of the Sitar. He was a man that shared India's rich cultural heritage with the world & brought India to the forefront.

We need to honour & immortalise him on Indian stamps alongside other Indian icons of history like Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru & Satyajit Ray - where Shankar rightly belongs.

Shankar will be honoured with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award posthumously in 2013, the first Indian to get the prestigious award. Need i say more.
