Pt D V Paluskar’s biography

Never has any classical musican acheived legendary status in such a short lifetime. Pt D V Paluskar was the son of the legendary Vishnu Digambar Paluskar. V D Paluskar died when young Paluskar was just 10. D V Paluskar then got trained from two of his father’s desciples. But later on he evolved his own style of singing.Pandit Vishnu Digambar Paluskar (1872-1931) took up the task of conveying the message of Indian Classical Music to every home and convey it in the simplest way. An accident in his childhood deprived him of his eyesight. Inspite of this serious physical handicap, Paluskar took up musical training with enthusiasm and perseverance. He believed that music should not only be entertaining, it should also elevate and inspire. He realised that all great art should draw its inspiration from contemporary life and bereft of its social values it would be an empty kernel. He openly declared that his mission was to democratise the art of music. After giving public performances all over north India, in 1901, he founded the Gandharva Mahaavidyaalaya in Lahore, the first music school run by public funds. Here he trained individuals who would dedicate their lives to teaching music. In 1908, Paluskar migrated from Lahore to Bombay and opened a branch of the Gandharva Mahaavidyaalaya. Prominent among his disciples were his son D.V. Paluskar, Vinayak Rao Patwardhan, Narayan Rao Vyas and Pandit Omkarnath Thakur. He was known for his melodious voice and enchanting rendition of devotional songs. Poverty and ill health snatched Pt Paluskar from us when he was only 34.
