Bangalore: Death is inevitable, but life still goes on, leaving the living to remember the departed. 2012 has been a year which ceased many well known personalities from India. But there are those few notable ones who departed in 2012, who deserve a recall. Some of them were icons of inspiration and their demise was a loss to the country. A certain death was a vindication of India’s might, which is hoped to have brought enough solace to the families of the 26/11 victims. Here are the five notable deaths in India in 2012.

Ravi Shankar
The eminent Indian musician and composer who played the sitar, often referred by the title Pandit departed on 11 December 2012, aged 92. Pandit Ravi Shankar was born in Varnasi. In his youth he toured Europe and India with his brother’s dance group. In 1938 he gave up dancing to study playing sitar under the court musician Allauddin Khan. Since then he never looked back and was known in India and around the world as the sitar maestro which he truly was.
Pandit Ravi Shanker was awarded with many prestigious awards, one of them being the highest civilian honour for an Indian, the Bharat Ratna in 1999. He received three Grammy Awards and posthumously is considered as a recipient for the lifetime achievement Grammy.

1: @ anamika & Mekeni. Kasab has been included as a symbolism of India's strength against adversaries. Execution is still a form of death. The title is not " five glorious deaths" . Please read and understand the line "his death is a herald to those who threaten the peace and harmony of the country." enough said !

Dear Anamika,

the title is not "5 glorious deaths". Kasab has been included to remember that we as Indians stood up against odds and fought adversary , the fact that he was hanged in record time is a thumbs up to our justice system improving. Read this line in the article " his death is a herald to those who threaten the peace and harmony of the country." enough said!
