''The influence of his passion for Urdu poetry and initial grooming in Dhrupad tradition earned for him a special place in the world of music,'' said statement issued on behalf of the PM.

''The Prime Minister extends his condolences to the bereaved members of Shri Mehdi Hassan's family,'' said the statement.
