Pt. Ashutosh Bhattacharya Memorial Page - MANY INTERESTING PHOTOS

I just posted this to the old thread which somebody (who?) started when Guru-ji passed away in February, but then realised that probably no-one will see a response to such an old thread so I'm reposting as a new thread...
I was a student of Pt. Ashutosh Bhattacharya (senior disciple of Pt. Kanthe Maharaj) for 10 years and was with him when he passed away. I have made a memorial page for him : http://www.ethnosuperlounge.com/guru-ji.htm
On it you will find his story as well as many very interesting old photos of his concerts with artists such as Pt. Kanthe Maharaj-ji (his Ustad), U. Allauddin Khan, Pt. Ravi Shankar, Pt. Nikhil Banerjee, U. Ali Akbar Khan, U. Mushtaq Ali Khan. Pt. Kishan Maharaj and Pt. Mahapurush Mishra.
Keep practising everybody! Love to all Shen Flindell Aum Mani Padme Hum

Shen, great site. I loved the pictures and the wise words of your guruji. I remember you posting about the passing of your master some time back. May God bless him and forgive me for not passing my condolences then. Some of his photos show a beautiful smile in his eyes which I believe to be a reflection of his heart. Great to see new photos of Pandit Kante Maharaj and other musicians. I am myself a student of Pandit Sharda Sahai so you may consider me a cousin of yours if you wish.
