Bijulal - First visually impaired person to get a PhD in Music, in India

After five years of toil, singer Bijulal C.H. is savoring the fruit of his hard work. Braving many odds, this visually impaired singer has now successfully secured a Ph.D. in music.

Mr. Bijulal, who suffers from partial blindness as a result of Retinitis Pigmentosa, was recently awarded Ph.D. for his research on the topic ‘Concepts of Navanidhi Bhakti and its significances in the compositions of Saint Thyagaraja and His Highness Swati Thirunal'. The research, which he started in 2004, was done under the guidance of S. Bhagyalekshmi. This is not the first time that Mr. Bijulal is proving his academic brilliance and musical talent. He secured the third rank in M.A. Music from University of Calicut. He has also passed UGC's National Eligibility Test (NET) in music. Mr. Bijulal, son of C.P. Harilal and Vijayalekshmi, is residing at Vanchiyoor in the city.
