नीले नीले अम्बर पर, चाँद जब आये
प्यार बरसाए, हमको तरसाये
ऐसा कोई साथी हो
ऐसा कोई प्रेमी हो
प्यास दिल की बुझा जाए
नीले नीले  ...

(हो, ऊँचे ऊँचे पर्वत
जब चूमते है अम्बर को
प्यासा प्यासा अम्बर
जब चूमता है सागर को ) - २
प्यार से कसने को
बाहों में बसने को
दिल मेरा ललचाये
कोई तो आ जाये
ऐसा कोई साथी हो
ऐसा कोई प्रेमी हो
प्यास दिल की बुझा जाए
नीले नीले  ...

(हो, ठंडे ठंडे झोंके
जब बालों को सहलाएं
तपती तपती किरणें
जब गालों को छू जाएं ) - २
साँसों की गरमी को
हाथों की नरमी को
दिल मेरा तरसाए
कोई तो छू जाये
ऐसा कोई साथी हो
ऐसा कोई प्रेमी हो
प्यास दिल की बुझा जाए
नीले नीले  ...

(छम छम करता सावन
बूंदों के बाण चलाए
सतरंगी बरसातों में जब 
तन मन भीगा जाए ) - २
प्यार में नहाने को
डूब ही जाने को
कोई तो आ जाए
ख्वाब जगा जाये
ऐसा कोई साथी हो
ऐसा कोई प्रेमी हो
प्यास दिल की बुझा जए
नीले नीले  ...
More to come after this Pilot Cover Rendition of one of the best classics...Keep a watch.

Image result for Swaradhish Dr. Bharat Mohan Balvalli
Bharat Mohan Balvalli is an accomplished singer and music composer, who has released multiple albums and has gained recognition in Indian music industry at a young age. He has taken training under various accomplished Gurus for classical singing and harmonium. He is particularly fond of Gayaki of Master Dinanath Mangeshkar. He has been awarded the title ‘Swaradheesh’ in 2005, by His Holiness, Shree Shankaracharya Swami of the Karveer Peeth. His album on Swatantryaveer Vinayak Damodar Savarkarwas inaugurated by Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Damodardas Modi in 2014.
Early Life & Background
Bharat Mohan Balvalli was born on Saturday, the 28th March 1987 at Honnavar, Dist.Uttara Kannada, Karnataka State. As a child he would not sleep unless and until he heard the classical vocal records of Pandit Bhimsen Joshi and other great Pandits. Till he attained the age of ten years, he would not listen to any other type of music. Due to his father Pandit Mohan Balvalli, who is an illustrious Tabla Player, Bharat developed an ear for Taal and Rhythm from a very early age. He was also given rudimentary training in vocal music by his mother Sau. Jyoti M. Balvalli who had the benefit of tutelage in vocal music from a number of Gurus including Late Pt. Ramesh Nadkarni. Bharat was admitted to Ramabai Paranjape Vidyamandir where his musical talents were spotted by his music teacher Sau. Radhika Ubhayakar. She started giving him training in singing light music at the school as well as her music class. At the age of 4 and half years, he gave his first light musical programme at Vakola Datta Mandir for two and half hours when he was just recovering from a bout of chickenpox. He further went on to give a good number of vocal recitals including a couple of programmes on Mumbai Doordarshan. 
Bharat also participated and won prizes at various music competitions. Further he joined Parle Tilak English Medium School for Primary and Higher Education studies. His prowess in music was recognized by school authorities and encouraged by the music teacher and the Principal of the School. Later his music teacher Sau. Ubhayakar shifted her residence to Pune, he therefore, joined the music class of Sau. Viju and Shri Anand Naimpalli. He was also given training in Konkani Natya and Sugam Sangeet by Late Shri Murlidhar Gangolli. Bharat was very fond of harmonium playing. He would intensely observe the finger placement on the Harmonium of Sau. Radhika Ubhaykar and try to emulate her. He was therefore placed under the able hands of the illustrious Guru and Harmonium player Pandit Tulsidasji Borkar. 
Here on, he started winning substantial number of prizes in vocal recitals and harmonium playing at various competitions. He also started giving programmes independently. A list of the prizes won and names of organisation is enclosed for information. Pandit Borkarji, also started teaching him natyasangit. He tried the Gayakis of Chhota Gandharva, Bal Gandharva. But Bharat picked up very fast the Gayaki of Master Dinanath Mangeshkar, which was best suited for his harmonium playing and voice. The Guru and Shishya used to burn midnight lamps to research the difficult and intricate Gayaki of Master Dinanath. Later, for advanced studies in music, Bharat started learning classical vocal music from the Great Guru and Performer Pandit Yashwant Buwa Joshi of the Gwalior Gharana. Buwa was very kind hearted and generous. Whenever Bharat sang to Panditji's expectations, Buwa would not charge any fees at all, but would give Bharat a big Cadbury chocolate as a gift. Panditji gave him intensive and extensive training in classical vocal music. This resulted in Bharat’s winning a host of further prizes and gaining a lot of popularity. After passing his 10th STD in 2004, Bharat joined M. L. Dahanukar college of Commerce and Economics. In 2005, His Holiness Shree Shankaracharya Swami of the Karveer Peeth was kind and gracious enough to felicitate and confer the title of “Swaradheesh”on Bharat. Swamiji also felicitated and conferred the title of “Swarsaptarshee” on Bharat’s Guru Pandit Yashwant Buwa Joshi. It was a rare coincidence of both Guru and Shishya being felicitated and conferred titles simultaneously. Bharat also received the title of “Surmani” from the Sursingar Sansad, Mumbai. During this time he won a number of prizes at intercollegiate interstate and youth festivals.
