Tributes eulogized Shankar as the great connector of the East and West who'd hobnobbed with <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15229570/the-beatles">The Beatles</a> and collaborated with violin virtuoso Yehudi Menuhin. Less has been said about the roots of the music he spent a lifetime perfecting and innovating.<p>Indians mourned the man they affectionately call Pandit-ji, or Teacher.
