When Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, Pandit Ravi Shankar was asked to play something mourning his death on AIR. Drawing from the name Gandhi, Shankar took the three sargam notes —“Ga” (third), “Ni” (seventh) and “Dha” (sixth)—and developed a new melodic theme. He called this new raga Mohankauns - Mohan for Mohandas Gandhi and kauns, since it was similar to raga Malkauns. He later used the same raga as a recurring verse in his musical score for the 1982 film Gandhi.
Singer Angaraag Mahanta (Papon) is the only artist to have been a part of all three seasons of Coke Studio MTV.
