Gulabdan Barot

Some artists are popular for one of their creations which becomes their identity. Such is one popular joke by Gulabdan Barot which has become his identity in major. That joke is titled as “Jaamin Jadta Nathi”. One day while surfing the television, I came across a jokes program where I saw Gulabdan Barot for the very first time. And as he started sharing the amazing joke about Jaamin Jadta Nathi, I couldn’t move from where I was sitting. It was full of humor.

Video Interview of Gulabdan Barot

Gulabdan Barot is of course a popular humorist, but his creativity is spread in other fields too such as writing, history and poems. One of the said best thing about him is that his most of the creations are new and self-developed. He find humor from routine daily life.

Honestly speaking, when I went to interview him, I had no much idea about other parts of his personality, i.e. he is a very good poet. Couple of poems he has recited during this interview, which indeed are full of wisdom. Some of them are full of humor too. His poem about Rajkot is very much appreciated by other humorists too.

One of the things that I found very interesting about him is that, he is very much good with meanings of words which are spoken in routine language, but most of the people are not aware about its meaning. He also shared couple of stories where he mentioned the reasons behind blind-mythological rituals that we follow, without any understanding about it, such as he talks about why do people offer oil to lord Hanuman? Rather, his message was that we shouldn’t be doing it. He has given clear-cut explanation about the same too.

He is also writing a book where in which he talks about the sadhu jagat – saint realm combined with information about different religions and hindu sects. In this interview, you will get to hear him giving never before heard information about our own culture and religion. His study of history and religion is indeed appreciable.

Being an artist, a humorist, he has visited some foreign countries too. I was inspired to ask him about how has been the response to his program by Guajratis living in other countries. He shares his feelings about the same in this interview.

Being a retired forest officer, he is a wildlife lover.

This is one of the interview that I enjoyed very much. I am sure that, this effort will feel your time with happiness. Go ahead, watch it.
