Rahul Vaidya could not think of a better way to appreciate the Ustad than remove the gold ring he was wearing and present it to him.

Rahul says, “Zakirsaab is one the rarest Indians who has made tabla and India famous worldwide.

I have been one his biggest fans since childhood. During his performance, my hands turned red clapping.

My love for him and respect for his art just made me remove my ring impulsively and make him wear it. It was so sweet of him to have accepted it with a smile.”
