Bhimsen was the eldest among 16 siblings. He lost his mother at a young age and was raised by his step mother.As a child, Bhimsen was fascinated with music and musical instruments like Harmonium and Tanpura and would often follow processions accompanied by music bands. This exercise often tired him and he would curl up somewhere and sleep, forcing the parents to go to the police after efforts to trace him fail. Fed up, his father Gururajacharya Joshi come up with the solution, writing “Joshi mastarara maga” (son of teacher Joshi) on Bhimsen's shirts. This worked and those who found the boy sleeping would safely deposit him back to his house.
