Sad demise!

Veena Vidushi,Smt.VIDYA SHANKAR
Renowned veena Acharya, musicologist, sanskrit expert and reputed author of carnatic music texts, Smt. Vidya Shankar passed away this morning (according to news I had received from reliable sources). The field of veena suffers a great vacuum after her demise, the contributions she made during her life-time towards veena and the aspirants of veena have been immense and unparalleled! My heartfelt condolences to her family members and disciples.
I pray to God that her soul should rest in peace at the lotus feet of the Lord!
