Music video albums of his romantic songs are quite popular on social media and other platforms. The lyricist-singer-cum-actor in the music video albums is a constable with the Madhya Pradesh police.

The constable, Krishna Bairagi, now wants to compose, sing and record songs for personnel of the Indian Army and the police force killed in terror attacks.

Bairagi, who joined the state police in 2013, is presently posted in Ujjain and is well known for his singing skills.

“As per rules of state government I cannot borrow money from anyone, so I invest money I have saved to record songs,” he says.

“I have recorded and filmed five romantic songs all of which have gone viral on WhatsApp and other social media platforms. But now, after the Uri attack, I read about the plight of the soldiers’ family and decided to dedicate songs to martyrs of the Indian army and the police force.”

“People should compose, sing and record more songs on martyrs of the country,” he tells Hindustan Times.

“Everyone should sing for the martyr even if he or she has formal training or not and they should upload the songs on social media as patriotic songs unites the people of the country.”

Even senior police officers support Bairagi and give permission to sing at different platforms.

“The problem is of money. I need a sponsor who will fund my venture,” says Bairagi.

An untrained singer, Bairagi was born in a poor family in Ratlam and he draws his inspiration from his grandfather, who was “Katha Vachak” or a singing religious preacher.

At an early age he went to Mathura to learn singing but could not pursue singing due to financial crisis of his family.

After joining the state police, he decided to devote his energy to singing and is now a well-known singer within the police circle.

“I am thankful to senior officers for their support. They have given me time and offered me monetary help too,” he says.
