Onkar Ghaisas / Bio

Hello to all, I have born and bought up in Mumbai only. I am student of Wamanrao Muranjan Madhyamik Vidyalaya, Mulund. Now people will say, “so what?”. But later I’ll say Nitin Chandrakant Desai also had studied in my school many years before me. To be very frank, I never knew in my school days that I’ll tune a single poem. I had a hobby to tune up poems in our Marathi Textbook with a nice tune. I always used to wonder that how BurmanDa, Panchamda, Pt. Hridayanath Mangeshkar, Babuji, Shridhar Phadke can compose songs? How a tune comes in their mind when they read a poem? Those were questions to me in that age. Even today same questions come in my mind when I listen to ultimate songs of these legends. So these people are my inspirations. Apart from that, it’s not like I am the only person who really understands music in `Ghaisas Family’. My musical knowledge or understanding has a background. My mother is BA Vocal, SNDT Colg, student of Saralataai Bhide. She had performed on stage. My sister had been performing with Music Director Anil Mohile in many concerts. My father writes up poems and binds that with sweet tunes. So luckily there was musical environment at my home. I used to try to play songs on my mother’s harmonium by myself when I was kid. And most of the times I succeeded. It’s not that I was playing gracefully, but I could understand the `Sur’ so I could make successful attempts. At least people could understand what I am playing. Later on after my 10th, all off a sudden I wrote a poem on mother, I tuned that. Then I wrote a poem on love. I tuned that. My uncle gifted me a book of poet Mangesh Padgaonkar. And from there I got in love with one more hobby, reading poems. This later on became source to provide me poems to create a song. I have completed graduation in IT. I am currently working in IT field. But in future, I will definitely push myself in the field of art fully if I get fantastic projects. One single sound from human mouth was invention of music and it was before language was formed. So music comes before language. I want to spread music despite of language. I hope you would like my music :)
