Pandit Puttaraj Gawai was a living legend, an encyclopedia on the move and a multi-faceted artiste. Very few had made such an achievement.

A religious head nurturing the blind to make them self-sufficient instead of losing heart for lack sight.

He was Puttaraj Gawai of Veereshwar Punyashram of Gadag in north Karnataka region.

The seer of Gadag Punyasharam, Dr Pandidt Puttaraj Gawai, who passed away in Gadag yesterday after brief illness was a legendary musician who served the cause of the blind for over six decadess.

The nonagenarian, who was born blind, had learnt seven languages and mastered playing a number of musical instruments, including violin, harmonium and tabla. He was also a renowned vocalist.

He was beacon light to all those who were crippled due to lack of vision as he himself was blind since his childhood.
