Profile of a Bhajan Singer with difference
Govind Bhargav was born on 4th February, 1956 in Kanpur in a Vaishnav family,
the youngest of the four children. A family steeped into tradition and highest value systems made a lifelong impact
on the mind of young Govind who learnt to recite Shri Radha Krishna Bhajans at a very tender age at the feet of his mother.
Creatively inclined and versatile in the true sense, Govind who finished his schooling
in 1972 from a Kanpur school, showed immense talent when he ventured into the forgotten art skills like the gold
leaf work on traditional Nathdwara form of Krishna. Later he joined the prestigious Delhi School of Art and excelled
as a professional designer. But his heart continued to wander back to Vrindavan. He took to classical music as an intern with the
glorious late Pt. Kashinath Bodas and could often be seen singing to Krishna across the Brij Bhoomi. A sojourn of
his choice on the weekends, from the hectic professional life in Delhi.
In 1982 Govind returned to his roots in Kanpur as his devotion to Shri
Radha Krishna heightened with his music. His spiritual Guru Shri Purushottam Das Ji Maharaj of Vrindavan became
his major inspiration in his Krishna connect.
Govind a bachelor is essentially a family man, a true karamyogi who
continued to give aesthetic direction to his family driven business, counted amongst the more respectable and
ethically run enterprises in Kanpur. He strongly believes that human faculties are diverse and with holistic approach
towards life one can attain much more than seems possible. This is how one explains his diversity ........ an endless
journey from the ethnic arts to music, to bhajans, to bhajans for masses.
Today Govind Bhargav sings bhajans to masses. He travels accross the world
enthralling thousands at each public performance. He is not a saint or a god man. Only a goodman, who wants to make
a difference in your life if he can. And he sure is making that difference.
He says it is not about telling people about Krishna ..... they all know him.
It is about restyling the lives of good people. Lets say it's making good people better. The most conspicuous influence of Govind's musical interaction with
people can be seen amongst the youth. Many young men and women have embarked upon self correction and spiritual
enhancement only by simplification of lifestyle by which Krishna has a small but sure place.
Many people believe that Govind's ability to selflessly reach out to people
in general is touching the chord. It is not out of place to mention that all Govind's performances are absolutely
Govind Bhargav is today a well known name in the world. He is believed to
recited bhajans for lakhs of people during the last 12 years. His regular coverage on many of devotional TV Channels
which also have international audiences, has an enormous mass appeal and a large following.
Govind is a lover of nature, well read into traditional knowledge and leads a
life of simple joys which include the joy of seeing thousands of people recite in rhyme with him. Most of his bhajans are
sourced from nameless treasures of devotiona poetry while some are scripted & composed by him only.
