Flute vidwan Dr N.Ramani, who inaugurated the Balabruhmam programme in Jaya TV in 2008, commented, as under:

“I have not seen my guru Flute maestro Mali playing in his childhood. I now think Flute Mali would have played like Visveshwar, in his childhood.”

– A great tribute, from the legendary vidwan, indeed.
