why does the author believed that Bismillah Khan's life is' a perfect example of rich, cultural heritage of India'?

Dear Student,

The author believed that Bismillah Khan's life was a perfect example of a rich and cultural heritage of India because:
  • He was a Shehnai maestro and his music bridged the gap between different communities.
  • Despite his religion, he had great respect for Varanasi and had faith in Baba Vishwanath. Whenever he was outside Varanasi, he would sit in meditation facing the direction of the city.
  • He also showed his respect towards his own faith by not play shehnai for 10 days during the time of Muḥarram.
