  8. Khokhar sahib, the real maestro of the era, in time,where there’re no such educated people seen in music, he filled this lacking by putting himself for music selflessly, never urge to make music as his profession, he says, “music is my love.” he devoted his whole for music, never urge to make money through it, “Raag Saroop” a unique book series of 5 editions so far is a land mark in classical music consisting of new techniques and innovations in music. now, he’s completed work on his 6th book “Panj Rang”. i’m having a great time with him so far, his kindness made me possible to learn classical music and i’m enjoying each and every moment. May Alla let him stay happy….!!! thank u sir…!!!
