Musicians are supposed to be heard,
not seen, is what he believed
He, who’d not be heard now
and not even be seen
For whom,
the surs were the prayers
For whom,
the namaaz and the music were alike
He, who’d put his soul
and his life
in the sound of his Shehnai
To him, the Ustaad,
we bid an adieu
coz’ now he’d spread
the sweetness in the heaven
Goodbye Ustaad,
the Ratna, the legend, the maestro
