Read Pt. Ravi Shankar's Certificate,1963

Contents of the certificate are as follows :

I was amazed to hear Chandrakant Prabhakar Sardeshmukh (who is barely eight years old) play the sitar with such confidence! Considering his young age, he played Raga Todi so well, and seemed to enjoy himself playing. A sheer prodigy ! I hope he grows up to be a great Sitaria by the grace of God. My best wishes are for him.
