In his maiden attempt, Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt modified an Archtop Guitar and added a veena touch by attaching a gourd at the back of its neck and employing a set of melody, drone and sympathetic strings strung to the turners. The invention proved out to be a music instrument that got its personalized name from its father and was called 'Mohan Veena'. The music genius Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt played it by placing it on lap like a slide guitar and produced melodious music that mesmerized the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, United States and couldn't stop them from awarding him the prestigious Grammy Award in 1994.

By lending enchanting performances in his music concerts all around the globe, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt didn't just recieve usual fan following, but also got fusion artists like Harry Manx and Matt Malley utilize the Mohan Veena for their music. He's one of the greatest Indian musician on whom our country could back on for popularizing Indian Classical Music between the world audience. Here's a small tribute artwork for the legendary man.
