He  (TVG) is humble and approachable. So feels C. K. Pavandeep, a Carnatic vocalist from Bengaluru. Pavandeep has been a disciple of music maestro T.V. Gopalakrishnan (TVG) for quarter century now. As his guru is set to step into the 90s tomorrow, Pavandeep pays his pranams to this multi-faceted musical personality who has been a living icon of our times.

“TVG sir is a magnanimous person. He is a one-stop go for any music and a person who can mould his disciple as a wholesome person and not just a music student,” says Pavandeep. For him, the person in Gopalakrishnan is lovable. “He is a wonderful and caring human being,” he adds. According to him, his guru is a purist who “made music to broader sense of performing and teaching”. In very many ways, his teacher is distinct. 

“The life he gives to each note in music and continuous improvisation of its presentation makes him very unique,” Pavandeep elaborates. According to him, guru TVG has made his music approachable to the staunch Carnatic rasikas as well as modern/contemporary world. “He is an ocean of knowledge. It all depends on you ... how much and what all you pick,” he puts it matter-of-factly. His commendable musical performance, well-knit strategic teaching and caring personality make him a cut above others, he avers.
