The Childhood Journey
Since childhood days Pushpendra was keen towards music. There was something which dragged him towards it- May be some old connection of past life or some God gifted boon. When he was a kid in his village, The Ramayana and Mahabharata path was organized, he used to get attracted towards it unknowingly. He used to keep on thinking how his voice will sound like in Mike if he sings. He used to copy those Kathas and recite it. He used to go to these Kathas stealthily, hiding from family and started to listen to it and memorize it. He used to climb from one roof to another (at village roof of all houses remained connected) so easily he could reach the place where Katha was conducted. He started singing in these Pathas, though he knew his parents will get to know one day, he could not resist himself, the desire and hunger for singing grew more. When he was at the 9th class he started singing in school functions. Even teachers and students used to listen to his song in free periods. But due to his passion, he started to get aloof from studies which led him to fail in one subject in 10th, which led to strictness from his parents and whatever little freedom he got from them all were stopped. He was asked to concentrate on studies. He was even not allowed to go out. But this could not help him to pass. Getting away from music made him more distracted and next time he failed in two subjects. This was during years 2006. His parents even got disappointed and gave up on him. It was his friend Brijmohan who used to push him towards music and asked him to do further studies in music. He used to run an attachakki, and as he even loved music, he was just crazy about music. He is a very good lyrics writer. And for ten years of Pushpendra’s life, Brijmohan was a great companion and was a great motivator for Pushpendra. Fun, Masti, learning, singing, recording!- He was a great companion of Pushpendra. He taught Pushpendra to play Congo- a rhythmic instrument. He bought it especially for him and a recorder too- they used to play and sing with it and used to record it for future reference.
