Yaru swami bhimsen joshi hesaru kelilla ? avara hindustahni sangeetha kaledavare illa. Avarige bharat ratna prashasrhi kottirodu karnatakke hemmeya vishaya. Avarige devaru hechchina ayassu kodali mathu avarida innu hechchina sangeetha kacheri madali. Haaduvaaga avara actions nodode, ondu kushy. Long live bhimsen joshi
I think Joshi should have refused to accept the award from a no name bureaucrat. My suspicion is that his health is so bad that he perhaps does not even know that the folks in New Delhi have belatedly conferred this award on a man who has had no equal in Hindustani music in the last sixty years. His family should have been more solicitous of the singer’s honor.
kannadigarenu kadime alla. Three years ago Dharam Singh went to Gangubai’s house and took exactly five minutes in her presence while delivering to her Kannadarathna or some such award. Only Ramakrishna Heggade and J. H. Patel seem to be the only chief ministers we have had who knew a thing or two about culture.
A real gem indeed !! Listening to him takes one to a different world.
Pandith ji has brought an honor to the award. pulikeshi avere let the bureaucrat stay away from these and be busy with dirty politics let they not touch this pure heart man (alla incarnation of music).
Itz more bliss to remember his allap, bada byall, raag vistar, boll allap, tan, boll tan and dhruth of every raaga.
he is saraswathy’s unmatchable selection. we shall pray to god to give him LONG HEALTHY LIFE.
Long live Pandit Ji a real and true ‘Bharat Ratana’. Koti Pranam.
Sorry for the out of context comment here, didn’t get your email id,
Election Commission has set up Voter Facilitation centers to expedite voter registration, more details in the below link, great if you could pass on the message to others….
Real Gem. I listen to Bhimsen Joshi music regularly. I am happy that at last Bhimsenji got the Bharath Ratna award.
As National anthem is sung in all schools in weekdays similarly Panditji who has sung “Bhagyda Laxmi Baramma” song will be sung by all ladies in thier homes in the evening time in all days of a week in Karnataka…
