Dr Pandit Gokulotsavji's brief about his awards and achievements is as:
Some years before this, the Urdu service of All India Radio had received angry letters from its listeners in Pakistan, who pointed out that in a programm featuring Khan Sahib, another name had been wrongly announced. Even experienced music listeners were misled. It was indeed Gokulotsavji who had sung Khan Sahib’s compositions and was presented with an Ustad Amir Khan Memorial Award. Gokulotsavji said “It’s my misfortune that I could never meet Khan Sahib, but I listened to his recordings over and over again, and tried to emulate the spirit behind his music."He has a mind-boggling collection of Khan Sahib’s recordings which include even thumris, ghazals, and qawwalis besides khayals.“ which add up to around 3500-4000 hours, with rare ragas like Sarparda, Zurtabi, Shankara, Nayki, Kanhada, Hem, Kalingra, Lachchasakh, Chayanat, and Khemkalyan.
Gokulotsavji has received accolades from Pandit Ravi Shankar, Ustad N Aminuddin Khan Dagar, Ustad Bismillah Khan, Ustad Vilayat Khan, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Pandit Jasraj, Pandit Ram Narayan and many more.
