BHATKHANDE

Pandit Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande is the father of modern Hindustani music.

He dedicated his whole life to research in
ancient and contemporary Hindustani music and gave the latter a systematic shape.

Bhatkhande was born in 1860 on Janmastami day. His father Narayanrao Bhatkhande was employed as an accountant in a large estate in Bombay. The family lived in Walkeshwar, Bombay. 

From his very young age Vishnu showed talent for music. He tried to sing songs and the morning prayer in his school.

Later on he started playing on the flute. He took an active part in the religious festivals of the year like Rama Navami and Janmashtami.
