Ustad Alauddin Khan is the story of a simple man who dedicated his life to attain oneness with God through different forms of music, Sahana, his great-granddaughter. Draws the story of his life from his handwritten manuscript, photographs and letters painstakingly archived by her father and Baba's grandson, Dhyanesh Khan. In the process, she takes us through his chequered and fascinating life - from the time he survived on alms just to learn music, to his archieving the status of a maestro. The book is a tribute to a legend, an attempt to reflect on the life of a man whose unparalleled ambition, will power, dedication and discipline, placed him among the finest musicians of the world.
