A Noble Concept

"Gurukul" is a unique legacy prevalent in Indian culture for imparting knowledge from the Guru (master) to the Shishya (student). To facilitate a seamless flow of knowledge, the student dedicates all his time residing and learning in Guru's close proximity. This exclusive style nurtures and cultivates a divine bond between the two and goes beyond time and location constraints which are usually associated with formal classroom lessons. The students not only receives the "content" but also undergoes a lot of "cultural mentoring" - an extremely essential element in the training process of knowledge transfer.

This distinctive tradition has produced some of the finest exponents in the field of Indian performing arts – be it vocal, instrumental music or dance.

"Gurukul" has been paved on this foundation and intends to continue this precious tradition.

Agra Gwalior Gharana’s senior and eminent Guruvarya Sangeetacharya Pandit D. V. Kanebua dedicated all his life to the “sadhana” of music.

His disciple, today’s leading vocalist Smt Manjusha Patil is an outcome of his precious tutelage and to preserve this heritage, she initiated the Pratishthan–which is gradually culminating into a wonderful institution, encouraging and supporting genuine musical growth and grooming the upcoming talents. It also offers a scholarship to those who are in need. In the year 2014, she established 'Sangeeatcharya D V Kanebua Pratishthan's Gurukul' in Sangli. Currently 45 students are learning Hindustani Classical Music here.

Why Sangli?

Sangli-Kolhapur is a place where there is a treasure for Hindustani Classical Music. Ustad Abdul Karim Khan, Ustad Alladiya Khan, Gundubuwa Ingale, Yashavantbuwa Mirashi – all such maestros of Hindustani Classical Music have emerged from this very place. It has a proper environment and culture for the growth of Hindustani Classical Music. Further, Pandit D. V. Kanebuwa and Mrs. Manjusha Patil hail from this very area. Hence, Mrs. Manjusha Patil wanted this Gurukul Project to take place in the same area.

This initiative encompasses a long term vision and has a very positive future roadmap. The tradition will be extended to other cities of Maharashtra along with some additional activities to involve more music lovers. It will proliferate into a rich source of knowledge through a collection of books, literature on music and an extensive library of audio/video recordings of renowned artists. Music workshops, lecture-demonstrations and seminars will be planned on a regular basis. This will also encourage developing a refined breed of good listeners and an astute audience.

A Humble Appeal

The Pratishthan would like to request the corporate organisations, connoisseurs and followers to kindly extend a helping hand for promoting this creative pursuit. Any endeavour of monetary contribution will be a great sustenance enabling this mission to continue steadily. Your contributions will be a great gesture towards supporting a noble cause and you will always be entitled for significant tax benefits under the 80G scheme on all your donations.

An inspired initiative

To implement this honourable concept, the committee members of D.V Kanebua pratishthan envisaged an institutional initiative and established "Gurukul" on at 06 Sept 2014. Sangli was a preferred town being a birthplace of Smt Manjusha Patil and with an aim to encourage the evolution of local talents in the area.

The students are prudently selected for imparting the training and they are appropriately provided with opportunities to perform at various internal and external events.

Pandit D.V. Kanebua and Smt Manjusha Patil

Agra Gwalior Gharana's senior and eminent Guruvarya Late Pandit D. V. Kanebua dedicated all his life to the "sadhana" of music. Born in Ichalkaranji, he was trained under illustrious lineage of Pt Mirashibua, Pt. Vinayakbua Patwardhan and Agra Gharana stalwart Ustad Vilayat Hussain Khan. Pandit Kanebua generously passed on this treasure to the enthusiastic students.

Today's leading vocalist Smt Manjusha Patil is an outcome of his precious tutelage and to preserve this heritage, she initiated the pratishthan–which is gradually culminating into a wonderful institution. encouraging and supporting genuine musical growth and grooming the upcoming talents. It also offers a scholarship to those who are in need.

Need of an Hour

In today's world of stressful and demanding lifestyle, such initiatives are the key for retaining and growing the cultural inheritance. The "Gurukul" approach ensures the correct thought process and cultural development to pursue quality more than just the quantity, quite contrary to the fast changing face of performing art education.

A step forward

This initiative encompasses a long term vision and has a very positive future roadmap. The tradition will be extended to other cities of Maharashtra along with some additional activities to involve more music lovers. It will proliferate into a rich source of knowledge through a collection of books, literature on music and an extensive library of audio/video recordings of renowned artists. Music workshops, lecture-demonstrations and seminars will be planned on a regular basis. This will also encourage to develop a refined breed of good listeners and an astute audience.
