It's the story of many a men, but this one dared to follow his dreams. And looking at us now is nothing but reality. He was born to, S.Gurdev Singh and Tej Kaur, in a village by the name of Giddarbaha, in distt. Faridkot in Punjab. His date of birth is 4th January, 1957, but as he says, "Dil Hona Chahida Jawan, Umaranch Ki Rakhiya....I actually live up to this sentence."
He went through
the normal drill of being educated in Malout. The one thing with
him even in those days was his singing! After the basics were over,
his parents thought it best to shift him to Patiala city for further
studies. The National Sports Institute was there and Gurdas Maan
joined up to finish his masters in physical education. At the point
he was all set to be a sports coach!!! He took part in many athletic
events and won himself a couple of medals. He also happens to be
a black belt holder in Judo.
He got to show off his talents in plenty of youth festivals, that were organized by various universities. And talent indeed, because it was here that he started winning awards for his work in singing and acting. On completion of his masters degree, he started looking around for a job.
But in the meanwhile, keeping the creativity channel
in him open, he continued to write as well as do stage plays. Having
arrived on the music scene more than two decades ago and still holding
on to his seat, the credit of taking Punjabi music from a regional
level to national and then on to the international level absolutely
goes to Gurdas Maan!!
