Unlike Benares, the state capital Lucknow has offered sarangi players a good number of positions as performers and teachers in government-sponsored musical institutions, prominent among them Bhatkhande Music College, the Lucknow Kathak Kendra (dance academy), and of course the Lucknow radio and TV stations. Most desirable among these is the position of staff artist at All India Radio. Bhagvan Das held this position for years and is a very highly regarded musician, both as accompanist and soloist.
