Asha Bhosle on Padma Vibhushan Pandit Jasraj’s death

Much to the sadness of all, music icon Pandit Jasraj breathed his last at the age of 90. Condoning his death, Asha Bhosle said: “I am deeply saddened by the unfortunate demise of Pandit Jasraj ji… I have lost someone who was extremely fond of me, I have lost a big brother indeed! Sangeet ka sooraj doob gaya! He was a vocalist par excellence and I knew him for so long… even before his marriage to V Shantaram’s daughter. He used to praise me a lot and he always used to say “Main tujhe gaana sikhaunga!”

“Back in the day, when I had visited his classical school in the US, where he used to teach music to so many aspiring talents, I remember how I had wanted to enroll myself into his school because he was that good! On that same trip, we’d gone out for dinner, and Jasraj ji, who was a staunch vegetarian, kept requesting me to also turn vegetarian for health reasons. I will always remember his childlike demeanor.

May his soul rest in peace!”
