Hridaynath Mangeshkar is a renowned Indian music director, singer, music composer, and politician.He was born in the Gomantak Maratha Samaj family. Bean Inspirer.Since his childhood, he was inclined towards poetry. During an interview, while remembering his childhood days, he said, If I like music 100% then I like reading 101%. When I was 5 years old, I developed an infection in my leg. The pain was so bad that I would just be sitting at home. I could not walk, I could not play. It was not financially possible to have any formal education in school. To entertain myself, I would keep pestering my mother to tell me stories. She started off by telling me stories from her life in Thalner; then she moved on to tell about Babas life and stage experiences and when that was over she started reading from the books that we had at our home. He continued, So she started reading from religious mythological books such as Hari Vijay, Ramayan, Mahabharat and Dnyaneshwari. Once that was over, we started reading Babas old plays like Gadkaris Raj Sanyas, Veer Savarkars Sanyast Khadag and Veer Vamanrao Joshis Ran Dundubhi. Later I started reading on my own and was bowled over by the poetry of B.R. Tambe, Keshavsut and Kusumagraj. In the latter years, I started exploring what kind of spiritual poetry was written in other states and started reading the works of Meerabai, Kabir and Surdas.
