Gavai was a recipient of Padma Bhushan which is India’s third most important national award. He was also a promoter of Gwalior Gharana. The saddening part of the singer was that he was born without eyesight, he was blind right from his birth, and still Gavai was able to carve a niche for himself in the world of music.
Apart from singing, Gavai was a playwright, a poet and wrote many books on music. Not many know that he had also learnt Carnatic music.
The ashram that he dwelled in was his own creation where he educated 1,000 children; most of them are visually impaired and belong to poor families that cannot afford education to their children.
