The idea Babukishan had when he created the Guduri was Love, Peace and Unity between all people. As the Ektara or Gopi Chand is the symbol of Love Peace and Unity so should their dress express this as they traveled to festivals around the world.
At first Babukishan was endlessly criticized about it when his Dad first started wearing it, but then many fell in love with the new style. Babu kishan received many compliments from people such as Dr. Ananda Shankar Roy, Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi, Pranab Mukerjee and Mrs Subra Mukerjee now the President of India.
Tv Producer Abhijit Das Gupta, Jyoti Basu W Bengal former chief Mininster, Diretor General of India Radio.. Dr Bhupeen Hazarika, Mithun Charabhorty, Bapi Lahari.. MF Huissen, Amarta Sen, Chuni Goswami and Allen Gisnberg. All Babu Kishan's well wishers and they all loved his design.
Babu created this dress for his dad because in his mind he wanted to preserve Baul and while they were attending all the festival, concert hall, and doing lectures this dress would draw to what Baul was a multi coloured lineage.
Most Baul performers are wearing this dress today without even knowing who the master minded behind it is. Babukishan would go around to all the tailors and collect bright colors and his mother Manju Das would sew them together by hand creating this bright Baul costume.
Babu wanted this dress to promote his father Purna Das Baul at all festivals around the world including Poush Mela. No matter what most Bauls follow this lineage, they sing the songs from this lineage, they sing Purna Das Bauls songs, they sing songs written by Nabani Das Baul and Babukishan and all their relatives.. and they even dress like this lineage... without even knowing where things came from.
