At the beginning of the program Madhubhatta Tailang gave the performance of Omkar, with his voice, the whole atmosphere became melodious. On this occasion, in a conversation with Dr. Saleha Ghazi, Madhu Bhatt told that his parents instilled faith in music in him since childhood. When she was five years old, she used to sit at four o'clock in the morning to study with her father and guru Pandit Laxman Bhatt Tailang. Father never taught to get fame but only to learn. Mother always tried to make steel. When I got the cycle for the first time, it was also given to the boys, on which I used to bring coal and sometimes flour, if I made a mistake, I would also wash it. But from there we became stronger. Responsibilities were understood from childhood, this is the reason that from ninth grade to Ph.D., he completed his studies through scholarship.
Talking about the struggle, he said that I did not have to search for any master's, but when there was a program outside, I would have to go alone. Dhrupad singing was often monopolized by men, so the practice of Dhruvpad was challenging. To change myself against nature, I did Riyaz for hours, then after going somewhere I could reach this point today.
For the first time, Professor Premlata Sharma ji gave the opportunity on stage alone, at that time age was twenty-one years and immediately when the opportunity came to perform on stage alone, accepted that challenge as well. Criticisms were also many, but after learning from the masters, he also improved a lot. Madhubhatta Tailang tells that she never slept more than four hours in her entire life, singing Dhruvapad gave her so much strength. She proudly tells that she has run many workshops, programs, and programs along with her father in Rajasthan and has been giving information about Dhruvapad to the youth in Dhruvani magazine. They are very happy to inform us that students from abroad come to learn Dhruvapad and in Banaras, there is also a Dhruvapad fair. The only complaint he had with the Rajasthan government was that he never received praise and never received any award. Madhubhatta was not limited to singing Dhruvapad, he also performed his art in Manipuri dance, Kathak, Bharatnatyam and theatre.
During the dialogue, he brought his personality in front of everyone through his poems. Prior to the program, Rajasthan Forum's Executive Secretary Apra Kuchhal felicitated all the members of Rajasthan Forum. Selected music lovers of the city including members of Rajasthan Forum were also present on this occasion.
