"I accept this honour on behalf of all Hindustani vocalists who have dedicated their life to music", said Pandit Bhimsen Joshi on being told about his selection as the recipient of Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award.

"I just talked to my father and he said he was glad and he accepts this honour on behalf of all Hindustani vocalists down the centuries who have dedicated their life to their music", said Srinivas Joshi.

Although a Kannadiga by birth, the legendary vocalist is settled here for more than half a century.
