Ganesh Nayak Memorial Open 2014 2 On February 22, 2002, conductor George Pehlivanian, X's neighbour and friend from Paris, was scheduled to lead the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra as a guest conductor. Deeply troubled by the news, he was initially reluctant to perform; however, he decided to go ahead with his concert rather than give in to the despair wrought by the evil inflicted on X. In August 2002, in the spirit of X’s love for music, his family invited people across the globe to dedicate a musical event on the day he would have turned 39 years old - October 10, 2002. Thus, the seeds were planted for X World Music Days - now an entire month of worldwide "Harmony for Humanity" concerts. The 2014 edition just concluded. Who is X?
