Musical Rendition of 'Shri Ramcharitmanas' on All India Radio


Dear Friends, 

Today I am going to tell you about a beautiful composition!! It is the musical rendition of Sant Tulsidas's 'Shri Ramcharitmanas'. I guess it was made many years back, probably in 1970s or 80s. After that , All India Radio keeps on playing it anytime during their daily programmne schedule. 

The music director the series is Mr. Satish Bhatia, who has done such a marvellous work!! 

The composition has a basic background music (theme), on which everyday some lines of Ramcharitmanas text are sung. 

Mostly all the famous singers have lend their voice in this composition, filled with devotion!! 

Now I will tell you how I come to know about it. These days everyday morning AIR FM Gold (106.4 megahertz in Delhi) plays 10 min from this priceless composition from 6:50 - 7 am.  At first I could not understand the meaning of the lines sung by the eminent singers, as the text is written in Avadhi language. But this composition is Unique in the sense that before each day's musical presentation, they tell the story of that part. So we have an idea of the content of the musical beforehand :). Such a great maturity on the part of the director!!! 

I am amazed to FEEL the Bliss generated by the music!! Thee writing itself is like Divine Nectar , as we all know, and the music makes it even more sweet!! All the devotees need to listen to it to FEEL the depth of Tulsidasji, and to get immersed in the devotion of the Lord!!! Wonderful Creation indeed!!! I am short of words to appreciate this great composition !! 

Also credit goes to All India Radio, as they are playing it in all their channels / stations for so many years!!! 

My salute to all the singers, music directors and to all the persons related with this great venture!!! .... 



You can find some more information about this composition in the blog of 'The Hindu' newspaper. The title of the article is 'Hearing with the Mind's Eye', written by Jitenmdra Pratap. The blog address is- www. blog.thehindu.com/delhi . And the date of the article is 30 Jan 2009. 

Here is the link of the article -

So, enjoy this great text 'Ramcharitmanas', with wonderful music!! ....

I thought to edit this post as many useful information regarding this great creation came to me as comments below this post since last one year. The Kripa of the Lord indeed :) :)



Firstly. I came to know that CDs of Baalkand and Sundar kand are available in the Aakaashvaani centres. And these CDs are also available on Flipcart also - which is another good news :) :). Now anyone can purchase it :)



Another great news of JOY is that AIR Allahabad has this composition in their collection (website), from where the listeners can download them or listen online :). Here is the link of the page

Lots and Lots of Thanks to all the readers whose comments helped us in such a way :). For me, reading all those comments means sharing the Blissful experience with another Devotee :) :)



Keep listening :)



Jai Shri Ram!

  1. You have summed up the entire experience in a very precise and accurate manner. Kudos!

    I grew up hearing my grandpa listen to this on AIR however only recently when I happened to hear this one morning I was truly mesmerized by the simplicity and beauty of the composition.

    I have recorded a clip of it so that I can search for the entire composition as listening to it for 10 minutes only is a bit annoying...however I have only managed to come up with a few results for various artistes including Mukesh and Jalotaji, but the artist on AIR is even better(in my opinion).

    Any help in that regards would be highly appreciated !!

    1. Thanks a lot for your appreciating words!! I am so glad that there are many persons like you who value this wonderful creation so much!!


      Yes, indeed!!! This musical arrangement/ composition of RCM series is one of its kind!!!! I am listening to it everyday now and getting completely involved in it for those 10 minutes....


      I do try to record those parts, but as you have said, the length (10 min) is really too short :(


      It is not available on the internet, I have also searched for it.

      Just a few days ago I was reading in a site that may be Aakashvaani has already released a DVD/ CD set comprising of this version of RCM.

      Here is a part of the article -

      "AIR treasures 25,000 classical hours!"

      http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P3-1356277181.html


      Don't know whether this DVD/CD set is already in the market or not. If it is there, then definitely it will be a great news for all the devotees out there!!

    1. Thanks a lot for your comment here :)

      I have given the Frequency of FM Gold here in place (Delhi) in the post. If you live in any other city, in that case the frequencies of other FM Gold stations are also mentioned in the post. But I don't know whether all those FM Gold stations regularly air RCM in the morning or not, like the Delhi station. You can try to find out by tuning to the FM Gold station available in your area.


      Anyway, I have found something else :) - here is the FM Gold Service which you can access through internet-

      http://allindiaradio.gov.in/Gold.htm


      You can try to listen to this link from 6:45 or 6:50 to 7 :00 am to find out if RCM is played here or not.


      Hope it works :)


      Jai Shri Ram!

      Thanks for your comment :)


      Yes, some of the links of AIR Allahabad RCM page do not open, that I have also noticed. That can be a technical fault of that site, may be they can fix the problem in future. I have not downloaded all the tracks. Sometime I try to record them directly from FM.


      And regarding the CDs, I think they are available in Aakaashvaani counters in all the cities where they have stations. And as Sandeep has mentioned in his comment above that the CDs are available on Flipcart also. So you can try in both the places.


      Jai Shri Ram!
