The story from the beginning

The story from college to joining Krishna consciousness movement

We (all members of the Madhavas rock band) were in engineering college when we formed a rock band. In those days, we used to spend a lot of time together to practice and improve our music. Our bass guitarist Naam Bhakti Devi Dasi (Namrata Sobti) had an inclination towards Krishna and by chance she once went to the ISKCON temple in Chandigarh. Gradually, she developed a lot of faith in Srila Prabhupada's teachings and started telling the same to rest of the band members. So, one by one each one of us started going to the temple. The band leader Nirdosh Sobti (now Nav Kishore Nimai Das) was the 'toughest nut to crack', so it took a bit of time for him to join others. Other band members knew that if he would build up faith in Krishna Consciousness then he would contribute a lot in the sphere of sankirtan music as he was the only one in the band who was gifted with loads of talent and was teaching other members the basics of music at the same time. He was one the best guitar players in entire North India at that time and later went to become of the best lead guitarist in India.

Our band is our family!!!

Being a 'devotional band' we have performed in many Rath yatras, Janamashtami festivals, Vyas pujas, house programmes and devotee's wedding ceremonies. We always prefer to stand while performing kirtans and prefer that our audience also stand and dance as we perform. Our band gives 'high energy performances' as we are highly influenced from our early phase of rock music culture which we have used in our devotional projects too. We are glad that people like our music and happily accept it.

An artist is one who accepts his flaws.

Struggle for existence is everywhere. Srila Prabhupada explains it very nicely. We are indebted to him to make us realize this fact.

We just perform our music and have our own following from where we get regular work. We just go with the flow of time and accept everything as Krishna's plan for us.
