Inspiring Story of Singing Sensation from Dhampur

Meet Pushpendra  Chauhan the Music Promoter from Dhampur, Bijnor, UP

Being from a non-musical background to curriculum setter of academic musical course in schools, the journey has been wonderful.

“Never give up attitude” has dragged Pushpendra to open his own institute in Dhampur, which prepares students who are to be the future musical sensation of our country. Socially he has a mission to promote music amongst students of below poverty line in urban areas so that music can be a way for survival for those who have this God-gifted talent.

Pushpendra Chauhan a small town boy from Sedhi

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.

DIGITIZATION- A Solution or a Curse for Common Man?


We have seen a wave of measures being taken by the current government to promote digitization across the length and breadth of the country.

Mobile Wallets, UPI, and Mobile Apps to name a few have been actively promoted across all channels (print/electronic/social). Our elected leaders too have started wooing people into the benefits of going digital.

Amidst this surge in the pressure on the “aam aadmi” to adopt digitization, I feel that there is a gradual feeling of despondency, frustration as well as anger creeping slowly and steadily in the common man. A man who sometimes back had to think only about earning a square meal a day for him and his family, has to know suddenly rattle up User Id’s and Passwords across several “Digital Platforms” !

Obvious questions that come in mind are:

  1. Is the whole country ready to adopt this digital wave?
  2. Are our systems, processes as well as controls (digital security systems) full proof to avoid the deadly menace of hacking & online frauds?
  3. Is 21st century India (and here I mean our farmers too) literate enough to adopt digitization…


Think India Think…

The Real Picture of Benaras

An Encounter with the Dead and the Living: Benaras

Whitewashed buildings that stand out glowing in the sun, historic houses, embellished front gates that screams of a golden era that just passed by, prehistoric ghats that scorns the sense out of resting eyes and ears, smell of fresh milk products and marijuana that greets each and every walking soul who come to explore the thronging landscape, narrow lanes where cows and oxen stand in solitude as the world passes by, forms the city that has maintained the same image for almost five centuries. There are obvious tell-tale signs of modernization which has for far more obvious reason never subdued the ancient qualities that existed in the city.

The Anomaly

The Anomaly of R

I’m frigid, I’m deep, carelessly seeing the world go by,

I cannot mix, dwelling in my own world as people sway with the tide.

I’m deep, capable of talking when no one listens to me-

I converse with myself since I have no friends free. I live by my own terms, not dictated by common norms

I find pleasure where most would rather not storm.

Imaginary, prancing my fingers on tricksy volume of air,

I derive my solitude and solace from unrealistic affairs.

Bipolar one shouts, schizophrenic the other-

The real world is a world apart which only brings despair.
