We celebrate the star Bismillah khan shehnai maestro on his birthday today
Ustad Bismillah Khan , often referred to by the honorific title Ustad, was an Indian musician credited with popularizing the shehnai, a subcontinental wind instrument of the oboe class.

His great grandfather Ustad Salar Hussain Khan and grandfather Rasool Baksh Khan were also musicians in the Dumrao palace.

His ancestors were court musicians and used to play in Naqqar khana in the princely states of Bhojpur, now in Bihar.

At the age of six, he moved to Varanasi.

Khan was a pious Muslim, and was also a symbol of communal harmony.

He was credited with having the almost monopoly over the instrument as he and the shehnai are almost synonyms.

He was known to be so devoted to his art form that he referred to shehnai as his begum after his wife died.

Khan had the rare honor of performing at Delhi's Red Fort on the eve of India's Independence in 1947.

In the 1967 film The Graduate, there is a poster advertising "Bismillah Khan and the seven musicians" on a busy street of Berkeley, California.

He thought that if he would be able to share his knowledge it wouldn't be useful as it would only give his students a little knowledge.

He wanted to pay tributes to the martyrs.

The Government of India declared a day of national mourning on his death.

Sangeet Natak Akademi, New Delhi, instituted the Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar in 2007, in his honour.
