Even though a born blind Kollegals Gopalkrishna (now settled in Kolar) played the violin. By playing the classical music and janapada songs on the instrument, he won the hearts of the people.
 
 Music is absolutely essential to control a wandering mind. Amongst the many forms of such music, janapada music is also one of them and it is very important to lay a lot of stress on this, said Chokkahalli Chinmaya Sandhipini mutt’s  Sri Yogatmananda Swami.
He was speaking at the Kolar-Chikkaballapur district-level cultural and Janapada programme, jointly organised under the joint auspices of Nehru Youth Centre, Skirds organisation, Dhanamatnahalli and Parvat Rural Development Trust, in Chokkihalli, on Sunday and said janapada means (jana-birth, pada-journey) journey of life and also move towards God.
Since mind is wandering like a monkey all the time, it means controlling it and taking it towards God realisation, he said.
As our ancestors gave a lot of importance to janapada which talked about life, we still the art alive in many forms.
This is what is ‘Janapada Kala mela,’ he said and added everyone should follow this journey, he said.
More than 60 janapda troupes with 180 artistes are participated in this janapada kala mela and displayed their talents.
