Among the winding bylanes of Varanasi, Shekhar Gupta meets Ustad Bismillah Khan, the maestro who elevated the shenai from an instrument played at weddings to one that took pride of place on a concert stage. Ustadji talks about religion, the temples of Varanasi and his encounter with an Iraqi cleric who told him music was evil.
