These recordings are now available on YouTube and the Ministry of I&B is making efforts to reach them to larger audience across the country. 

“Music has many forms and it has power to motivate us.  Arya Sangeet Prasarak Mandal could function for 67 years without break because of the blessings of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. Pandit ji was dear to one and all. The way he performed for shows in foreign countries similarly he performed for people of all the strata of life”, reminisced Shri Javadekar on this occasion.
