Minor planet named after Pandit Jasraj

In a rare honour, a minor planet located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter has been named after doted 89-year-old Indian classical vocalist Pandit Jasraj. Jasraj is the recipient of numerous awards, honours, and titles, including the prestigious Padma Vibhushan and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award. Not only that, according to IAU guidelines, the discoverer is also supposed to write a short citation whereby they are required to give explanation to reasons as to why they are assigning the name.

In this quote, it was said that Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj is the pioneer of Indian classical singing. The worldwide body with authority in all things astronomy, the global Astronomical Union (IAU), has named the minor planet 'Panditjasraj (300128)' following its discovery more than a decade ago on 11 November 2006.

As of September, there are 5,41,131 numbered minor planets of a total of 7,97,078 observed bodies, with the rest being unnumbered minor planets. "Panditjasraj" minor planet can be seen on their official website with the number 300128, which is his date of birth (28/01/30) in reverse order. "His distinctive voice traverses a remarkable four-and-a-half octaves".

Born in 1930 in British Punjab, Pandit Jasraj is associated with the Mewati gharana of Hindustani classical music. "This is due to the blessings of God and my gurus".

"This recognition is not by the nation or government; nor is it based on something achieved on Earth". The planet, between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, was discovered in 2006 by the Mount Lemmom Observatory in Arizona. "He would have many conversations with Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who was also a musician".

Several minor planets have rings around them.
