Hazrat Inayat Khan with Veena (Source: WIkipedia.org)
Inayat Khan (Urdu: عنایت خان ) (July 5, 1882 – February 5, 1927) was the founder of The Sufi Order in the West in 1914 (London) and teacher of Universal Sufism. He initially came to the West as a Northern Indian classical musician, having received the honorific “Tansen” from the Nizam of Hyderabad, but he soon turned to the introduction and transmission of Sufi thought and practice. Later, in 1923, the Sufi Order of the London period was dissolved into a new organization, formed under Swiss law, called the “International Sufi Movement“. His message of divine unity (Tawhid) focused on the themes of love, harmony and beauty. He taught that blind adherence to any book rendered religion void of spirit. Branches of Inayat Khan’s movement can be found in the Netherlands, France, England, Germany, the United States, Canada, Russia and Australia.

Pandit Puttaraj Gawai: the legend lives on
Hubli | Saturday, Sep 18 2010 IST
Pandit Puttaraj Gawai was a living legend, an encyclopedia on the move and a multi-faceted artiste. Very few had made such an achievement.
A religious head nurturing the blind to make them self-sufficient instead of losing heart for lack sight.
He was Puttaraj Gawai of Veereshwar Punyashram of Gadag in north Karnataka region.
The seer of Gadag Punyasharam, Dr Pandidt Puttaraj Gawai, who passed away in Gadag yesterday after brief illness was a legendary musician who served the cause of the blind for over six decadess.
The nonagenarian, who was born blind, had learnt seven languages and mastered playing a number of musical instruments, including violin, harmonium and tabla. He was also a renowned vocalist.
He was beacon light to all those who were crippled due to lack of vision as he himself was blind since his childhood.
