Dear cmlover and meena,

I am Kalyanakrishnan - in other words, Parameswaran's father who you all know quite well.

Please accept my pranams too.

I note that Parameswaran is trying to do some good work for the benefit of mankind. I will be watching what he writes and will add my comments too as and when found necessary.

Let's all enrich ourselves with the little knowledge that we have by sharing our bit with each other.

Namaskarams to the elders and blessings to the younger ones,

Maamoondi
(this title was bestowed upon me by Sri TNS)

Dear Param and Shri Kalyanakrishnan,

Namaskaarms and welcome to Shri Kalyanakrishnan and thanks to Param for this start. I request Coolkarniji to get in touch with regard to Manakkal Sriram's participation. Thanks.

I will invite my good friend Salem Shriram (himself a performing vocalist) to participate.

CML,

Thanks for the invitation - sure I'll be very happy to participate and learn. It's just been terrible at work since Jan.

Param/Kalyanakrishnan sir, thank you for your initiative.

Rest assured that a lot of silent spectators are lapping up all your contributions even if they don't participate themselves.

Vijay

I am just in the 7th heaven! (No higher to go ;-)

Dear Kalyanakrishnan (mamoondi)

A very warm welcome and for the sentiments expressed. That title you got from TNS is engraved in gold in the hearts of the older generation (my kind) of CM lovers!

vijay

So nice to hear from you! Let us ask the tough questions to the profs ;-)

Let us raise a toast !

For decades I used to be thrilled at the prospect of identifying the exact moment the violinist (in a concert) would reach out for his violin at the end of the thani.(I could never bear the suspense).

Not any more guess.I will only have the task of raga identifying to keep me on the edge of my seat,hereafter.

Coolji - Just to make your concert attendance more suspense filled - how about guessing if a raga alapana is going to be followed by a kriti or tAnam? :)

Param,
I never got round as to when I should start my song after tani. I always ask the Mirdangist to give me a secret sign for me to sing.
Iam holding my breath for you to enlighten me in this aspect...

:) LOL.

Me too. And it is all going to be unravelled in a couple of days by Param. Too bad, the magic is going to be gone... ;)

It is interesting that a standard for the ending portion of the Thani has developed among the performers. An uncle ( the family friend type ) used to make up fanciful stories as to how all that happens and it was like Santa Claus when I learnt it is lot more mundane ( though I still do not know the exact details which Param is going to explain to us).

Der srkris,

I will be calling you tonight to discuss what I wish to speak to you as mentioned in my e-mail. Kindly spare a few moments of your busy evening.

Many thanks,

Parameswaran

Mr Kalyankrishnan

Is the tiltle mamoondi connected to the great mamoondi pillai the inventor of the kajira and guru of palani subramania pillai?

param, coolji and others

there is a three part analysis and explanation of palani's style of playing in his website including the thani avarthanam and when the vocalist actually joins the mridnagist back after the thani. I have already downloaded the same - it is nearly about 90 minutes ( all three put together). it is available at http://www.vidvan.com/musician/palani/index.htm

Nallanchakra,

I am responding on behalf of my father - my father sports a big moustache and it was due to this that Sri TNS chose to award him the nickname of Maamoondi.

I am unable to download the files from the URL provided by you. Could you so very kindly send the same as attachments to irdgr8@yahoo.com

Thanks
