Hafiz Ali Khan

I have the honour to present to you Ustad Hafiz Ali Khan, an artist of outstanding merit in the field of instrumental music of the Hindustani School. In recognition of his outstanding merit, which is too well known to call for a detailed statement, the Sangeet Natak Akadami has elected him as a Fellow of the Akademi and I pray, Sir, that you may honour him by handing over to him an Angavastram and a Sanad as token of his Fellowship of the Sangeet Natak Akademi.
