This chapter presents a biography of Vishnu Narayan Bhatkhande, a renowned musicologist and scholar. When Bhatkhande spoke and wrote, he did so mainly about North Indian vocal music, and within that subfield of Indian music his accomplishments were many and wide-ranging. By the second decade of the 20th century, he had excavated and made public a large number of old manuscripts. He had collected and notated thousands of musical compositions that he had subsequently compiled in many pedagogical volumes. He was a prolific writer of historical and musicological treatises on music in Sanskrit and Marathi (his native language) and an influential theorist and historian.
