I am very happy I’ve been chosen for Bharat Ratna - Pandit Bhimsen Joshi

Kirana gharana maestro and Pune’s icon Pandit Bhimsen Joshi on Wednesday expressed happiness at being honoured with Bharat Ratna and said that he remembered his late wife Vatsala when he got the news.

It was Diwali once again at Joshi’s Navi peth residence with ‘rangolis’ and floral decorations adorning the road leading to his house ‘Kalashree’. The rangolis were drawn around 5.30 am by non-governmental organization Vidhayak and activists of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and had inscriptions like ‘We are proud of you’, ‘Today is a golden letter day’, ‘Mile sur hamara tumhara...’ and ‘Congratulations’.

  1. Pandit Bhimsen Joshi is beyond Bharat Ratna.
    What he said is "This is an honour of KIRANA GHARANA, where I am coming from".

    Again, Ravi you are misleading your readers.

    I will say this is an honour of India by giving Bharat Ratna to Bhimsen Joshi.
