About the Book

Pandit Bhimsen Joshi has always lived for music. As a boy of eleven, he ran away from home in search of a guru. In later years, he underwent unimaginable hardships to emerge as one of the foremost classical vocalists of all times. Even today he calls himself a shagird, for his quest still continues. Joshi was born into a Kannada Madhwa Brahmin family in the town of Ron, now in the Gadag district of northern Karnataka. His father, Gururaj Joshi, was a school teacher. Bhimsen was the eldest in a family of 16 siblings. Some of the siblings still live in their ancestral home in Gadag. Bhimsen lost his mother when he was young, and his step mother then raised him. His parents lived initially with his grandfather as tenants of a Kulkarni household, but then moved to Gadag District.
