Dharwad: Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan, whose unique style of playing the instrument with his finger nails has enthralled audiences worldwide, has been presented the Mallikarjun Mansur award in recognition of his achievements. "I deem it a great honour bestowed on me. It is a big award for me," Khan, a Padma Vibushan awardee, told a packed audience on receiving the award at a function here last night. Khan showered praise on the cultural heritage of Dharwad, which he said has patronised music in a big way and urged Rajasekhara Mansur, son of the legendary Hindustani singer Mallikarjun Mansur, who presented the award, to continue his father`s legacy.
