Picture this if you will: It’s a remote village in India’s northwest; Giddarbaha to be precise. A quintessentially young Punjabi boy roams the village lanes that run through the lush green fields of his beloved homeland. The clanging of bells clipped on to farmers’ cattle and the melodious echoes from the keenly perched koels all play their part in shaping this young boy’s life. But he... well, he continues walking whatever path destiny has lain. “Yes, I pen poetry and sing in college festivals, but the athlete within me seems favourite. This will be my livelihood”, he assumes. But fate keeps him guessing.
Enter divine intervention. “Two paths lay before me. I chose to walk one and reached my destiny” he reflects. His much desired registration for a professional physical education position simply would not arrive. But something else did...
Discovered for his lyrical flow and singing prowess, this young boy was pushed straight under the spotlight. “Go sing to the nation on national television” urged the big boss men. His first step out of obscurity was followed by a second step into history. This now young man went on to reach pioneering heights. Not an artiste that belongs to the norm, but a legend unrivalled. The boy above went on to become the institution that is... GURDAS MAAN. And 30 years it has been. The inimitable legend that is Gurdas Maan has been gracing British shores from as far back as the 80’s.
Unlike others, the solo act of Gurdas Maan has inspired generations, and then some. The proof is in the product. The product? A collection of material so exclusive in its quality that one wonders whether the pen with which Maan writes is indeed a wondrous wand with which wonder is weaved.
