The one and only, unbeatable, the 67 year old singing legend, literateur, lyricist, writer and an outstanding musician of Uttarakhand, Narendra Singh Negi, popularly known as Garh Ratn has finally proved that he is truly unbeateable in meldious singing in and outside the Himalayan State of Uttarakhand globally, even after turning a Septuagenerian as one of his songs’ sung by him in the Uttarayini Kauthig held in Delhi in Dwaraka Stadium on 13th January, 2018 in the presence of thousands of admirers and fans titled MERA DAANDI KATHIYON KA MULUK JAILA, BASANTU RITU MA JAILA -2, was viewed and enjoyed by over 70 thousand viewers with thousands of appreciative comments and over 800 shares in just less than 24 hours of the video posted in FB.

This is definitely a record in itself. It may be recalled that this living legend of Uttarakhand having outstanding perfection in superfluous singing and writing Garhwali songs in particular is also a renowned poet, literateur, thinker and the patron of the local languages and dialects of Uttarakhand. His lyrics and songs on nostalgia, love stories, armymen fighting on borders, environment, against deforestation, conservation of local languages and culture, songs sung in marriages and against the political establishment on corruption and nepotism had been outstandingly popular and fetched applauds nationally and internationally with his song CDs’ sales crossing several millions.

Even the magazines’ of international prestige like India today gave him prominent coverage when Narendra Singh Negi’s most popular song CD broke all records in sale titled NAUCHAMI NARENA, sung by him against the alleged arbitrary practice of the then Narayan Dutt Tiwari Government in Uttarakhand to distribute hundreds of Red Beacon state ministerial posts to the incompetant politicians, some of them even in twenties and of no socio political relevance. Narendra Singh Negi has till now written and sung thousands of songs majority of them being super duper hits and has alwas been forthcoming in conserving the language and dialects of Uttarakhand through his songs, writings and poetries.

A remarkably outstanding living personality, Negi have always been the heart throb of billions of Uttarakhandies around the globe who had by now performed infinite shows in Uttarakhand, in various cities, towns and metropolises and abroad as well. The people of Uttarakhand and his die hard fans have always been demanding to accord him Padma Vibhushan a coveted award, but all in vain.

The successive governments of Uttarakhand whether of Congress or BJP have never given any heed to this request or appeal of his millions of die hard fans. It may be recalled that Narendra Singh Negi has just returned from the JAWS OF DEATH when he suffered a MAJOR CARDIAC ARREST few months ago but the prayers of his crores of fans have ultimately saved his precious life and is back on state singing for them uncaring of the major surgery done on him.

The google search done by his billions of fans was more than PM Modi in numbers as per a report appeared in papers and electronic channels during those days while the Uttarakhand Ratna was in hospital. This was something outstandingly AWESOME and incredible said news analysts then, about his increasing popularity.

The pious land of Uttarakhand has given several eminent singers of Garhwali and Kumaoni like late Gopal Babu Goswami, Keshav Anuragi, late Chandra Singh Rahi, and the new generational singers like Kishan Mahipal, Gajendra Chouhan and Jaagar Samraat Pritam Bhartwaan etc. But since the king of melodious voice Gopal Babu died at the early age late Chandra Singh Rahi did made a special mark in preserving the Uttarakhand’s folk culture as an eminent and popular singe. However, the way Negi revolutionised singing according to the local needs, situations, adjectives, environment, culture, love stories, exposing corruption in politics and highlighting the urge for the state’s development in his lyrics and impressive mesmerising songs, he broke all records and literally captured the CD market of his melodious creations. Today Narendra Singh Negi is not a name but an institution, a philosophy and an ideology.
