Violinist Balabhaskar, who had lit up thousands of stages and hearts with his mellifluous rendering of popular songs and his mastery in fusion music, is no more.
Balabhaskar (40) had been battling for life ever since he and his family met with an accident just outside the State capital on September 25. His two-year-old daughter Thejaswini Bala had died in the accident. His wife Lakshmi (38) and friend Arjun (29), who was at the wheel at the time of the accident, are still in the hospital.
The car had rammed into a wayside tree as the family was returning after offering prayers at the Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple.
