    Who does not know the Veteran singer Late Anand Kumar C, who gave his voice to the song titled “Mangal Bhawan Amangal Hari” in Ramanand Sagar's famous serial Ramayana? After him, his son Shailendra Bhartti, has been carrying forward his father's musical legacy with great beauty and dedication and winning heart of the audience just like his father. He has got a huge fan following in social media as well.

Now crores of his social media followers are angry with the fact that in the Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya, where many big singers were invited and performed on the stage, Shailendra Bhartti was ignored by not being invited to the ceremony.

         The fact is that, the name of Shailendra Bhartti is well known in the field of Bhajan gayan. He spreads his unique light in bhajan singing and give us a feeling of divinity through his devotional songs with the highest quality and sensitivity through his bhajan singing.

    Shailendra Bhartti's contribution is not limited only to devotional music, he has also achieved mastery in ghazal singing, sub-classical singing and light classical vocals. He has taken resolution to make the hymns and their simple translations available to the public on the subjects like Shrimad Bhagwad Geeta, Maharishi Valmiki Ramayana, Ramcharitmanas written by Tulsidasji, Durga Saptashati written by Shankaracharyaji, Garudpuran, Shri Sai Sachcharitra Granth etc. The combination of religious message and unique musical style contained in his bhajans gives us a feeling of spiritual peace and clarity.

      The number of followers of Shailendra Bhartti on social media attests to his unique singing reputation and contribution. The musical and spiritual importance of his bhajans has won him a special place in the hearts of the audience.

     Shailendra Bhartti has lent his voice to the albums composed in native and foreign languages. He is seen performing live in various religious institutions and festivals etc. in the country and abroad. His evergreen bhajans, ghazals, songs etc. are still heard on TV, radio and films. Let it be known that veteran and learned artists of the country like Bharatratna Pt. Bhimsen Joshi, Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar, Padma Vibhushan Asha Bhosle, Sangeet Martand Pt. Jasraj etc.

     Many Union Ministers and saints of the country are found praising Shailendra Bhartti on social platforms and also consider his songs as an important part of their lives. This makes it clear how Shailendra Bhartti's art brings spiritual significance in the lives of people. He is such a rare artist who is found in many years. Shailendra Bhartti's name has become an important aspect in the history of Indian music, and his contribution still resonates in our hearts.

    This is really an irony that the government has ignored the immense contributions of Shailendra Bhartti and his father Late Anand Kumar C by not inviting him for Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya. His fans and followers are still waiting to see when Shailendra Bhartti will be honoured with the country's highest honour and his singing and contribution will also be acknowledged.
