He was a very hardworking person and used to perform on stage for 2-3 hours continuously. The audience loved to see him perform on stage, and he also loved his work. If people consider us star performers, then Raju Srivastava was the entire sky. He was our teacher but never made us feel that. Raju Ji was very down-to-earth and had a great persona. He will always be remembered.”
