A few years ago I received a precious gift from Tejpal Singh-ji, of the Singh Brothers duo and a pupil of Amir Khan, in the form of his books. These are some of the photos from his work Sangeet ke Dedipyaman Soorya, Ustad Amir Khan (translation: The Radiant Sun of Music, Ustad Amir Khan), co-authored with Prerna Arora.

I have retained the original captions as they contain some more detail.
