There will surely be many more posts on the Dagar family a few more are waiting in line but lets have something else for a change. Here is a singer I enjoy very much. Unfortunately like so often there is very little to find in ways of recordings. This is the only vinyl I know of and it is another find from one of the excursions in the murky recesses of the back room of the Panchamkauns editorial office. This and a also a CD titled Nirmal, and some clips on youtube are all I have heard. if there are some more that you know of maybe you could tell me in the comments where to look and for what!
It is very hard to even turn up any information about him on the web so you are more than welcome to help! Apart from the recurring statement on various sites "info needed" these two items below are the only ones I have come up with and unfortunately this time there is virtually nothing to be learned from the record sleeve!
Rasiklal Govindji Andharia, (b. 13.10.1931-) from Bhavanagar, Gujarat of the Kirana gharana, had his musical training from his father Babulal Andharia. Rasiklalji started his concerts at the age of 16 and captured many musiclovers hearts with his mellifluos voice.
(I am sure panchamkauns will love the "no frills, yet captivating wording here!)
Andharia, Rasiklal Govindji, b. 13.10.1931,
M.Mus. Vocalist: Hindustani, khayal of Kirana Gharana.
Studied with Babulal G. Andharia.
Plot No. 551-B, Sir Pattani Road,
From "Who's Who of Indian Musicians" - 2nd edition (1984)
Fortunately my good friend Arvind, who has better skills and more patience sifting through the webs of the net, found this information for us!
The late Pt. Rasiklal Andharia came of a music-loving family from Gujarat. He was actively encouraged by his father in his musical pursuit. It was, however, his elder brother, Pandit Babulal Andharia, a scholar-musician, who gave the initial lessons in Classical Music. Thus Rasiklalji, in the manner of a true artiste gifted with talent and genius, forged ahead on his own. In this sense he can well be regarded as a self-taught musician. Even so, Rasiklalji's music bore the clear impress of the gayaki of the late Ustad Amir Khan. This is reflected in the way he could blend a plenitude of melodic and rhythmic virtues in his singing. What is more, his rich, sonorous voice had an uncanny emotional depth and enduring appeal - all of which often reminded the listener of the great Ustad.
The above is from this HMV Cassette of his music:

Thank you very much Arvind!
