Milon da was an inspiration to me and greatness of this man was in his simplicity. Thanks for such a fantastic article. It was extremely inspiring to read about such a genius who was single-handedly responsible for generating so much interest in this pocket-sized instrument in India. He showed that how a pure Western Instrument with such complications and limitations can be adapted to play Indian melodies and songs with all the perfect nuances.
