Gulshan Rajmalani was born in 1958 in a Sindhi family, at Sion in
Mumbai. After completing his education in 1977 he got inclined
towards the spiritual. Gradually, he became renowned for his
unique style of singing and organizing devotional songs.
his own words, this is how his journey started.
was around Chaitra Mas Navratri time, April May, 1977 that I saw an
unusual dream. I saw myself attending MATA KA JAGRAN on a Saturday
in a temple called Shri Gandhiya Mahadev Mandir, at Raoli Camp, GTB
Nagar. Once everything was over early in the morning, I was the last
person sitting in a corner of the temple,just looking at the
Matajiís Murti. Suddenly Mantji, the Sewadar called out loudly and
told me to come and take Prasad as they were getting late. After
this I lost my dream.
got up from my sleep and took bath, dressed up and went to the same
temple next morning. My dream was being replayed before me, as I was
sitting in corner, everyone went away only Mantji and his 2 sewadars
were there and he shouted in the same manner and asked me to come
and take Prasad as they were getting late. This was something I had
never experienced before. He also asked me to come early every
Saturday night for JAGRAN. I took my Prasad and came back home.
Next Saturday again I saw a dream of MATAJIíS JAGRAN at the same temple
Shri Gandhiya Mahadev Mandir. I reached late again after everyone
left and saw that Red KUMKUM was spread all over below Matajiís
Murti and one fruit Prasad was kept there. A Panditji (Brahmin) saw
me and asked why was I late and told me to take the fruit Prasad
from there and go as he had to get the temple cleaned up for morning
Aarti. I lost my dream.
Next morning I did go to the same temple and everything from my last
nightís dream was repeated there. The Red
Kumkum was spread all over below Matajiís Murti and a single fruit
Prasad was kept there as if it was for me only. As I was praying,
Panditji came and asked me why I am late and told me to take the
fruit Prasad kept there and leave soon as he had to get the temple
cleaned up for morning Aarti. Each and every detail got repeated in
the same way I saw in my dream.
I felt Mataji wanted me to start visiting her temple. Even though I
knew this temple for long I never visited it, so I started visiting
Shri Gandhiya Mahadev Mandir every Saturday, May 1977 onwards.
There were very few singers at that time who visited the temple but
the most important were Pandit Dhani Ram, Mahant Desraj, Papa
Gyanchand, Mr. Ahuja among others. Gradually as we all used to
interact with each others, we became good friends
and the place became like family to me. I used to have a good time
mostly with Mr. P C Ahuja, Mr. N R Khanna, Mr. Kishan Israni and Mr.
was around 1979-80 when I started singing for Mataji, my first few
Mata ki Bhents were -
1. Maiyaji Aasi Naukar tere
2. Mata Parvati ka Bhiya
3. Shanivar ka din aaya jage ki to rat aai
4. Hassda Muskanda ja tu nam dhiyanda ja
5. Oo Maiyaji oo maiya ji tera bachra pukare.
6. Bin Piyar ko main tarsna
I regularly started singing with them and around 1981 I used to sing
well on my own and learnt Ganpati Vandana, Mataji Vandana, Mataji
Bhogh, Mataji Ishnan, and Mata Tara Rani Katha,and learnt how to do
Days and years passed and it was around Sep, 1982 when few of us
left GANDHIYA MAHADEV MANDIR, and started doing Jagrans at other
places in each and every oneĎs house. It was Mr. P C. Ahujaís aim to
do absolutely FREE OF CHARGE JAGRAN'S at every oneís house
which later on continued.
1983, five of us formed a group called SHRI BHAWANI JAGRAN SAMITI
MUMBAI, and started booking Jagrans every Saturday free of charge
and preformed our first Jagran at Basant Park Chembur Mumbai 74. Till date we have continued that tradition of doing Jagrans every
Saturday in Mumbai, also all over India and abroad.
During 1995 onwards,
Mata ki Chowki started and Mr. P C. Ahuja started doing Chowkis on
the lines of Bhawani Jagran Samiti.
the time went on I got devotionally attached to it and during the
year 2002 I started my own group, with my son Mr. Vaarunn
Rajmalani called MATA KI CHOWKI and started my own
