Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan feels that classical musicians in India are not encouraged at the right age.
The 68-year-old musician, who won NDTV’s Indian of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award, said cricket legend and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was given Bharat Ratna at the right time.
“I am very happy to see that the musicians of Amaan and Ayaan’s generation are doing good work. But I feel that they should get encouragement at the right time.

“I am happy that Sachin Tendulkar got the Bharat Ratna at the right age. But we musicians get it at the age of 70, 80 and 90,” Khan said after receiving the honour.
The musician received the award in the presence of his two sons and wife.
The legendary sarod player also feels that music connects with the soul and religion of the world. “Music is like a ocean and I am a drop in it. Music has the power to connect to God. It connects with the soul and religion of the world,” he said.
