In the kriti “aMdu konavammA” in sAvEri, the book “DevIgAnasudha” has been dedicated to the goddess trIpurasuMdari. There is no mudra for this composition.

I rendered the song and uploaded at

Vimala,
I heard the tODi varNam, the paras (paraju) , Valaji and apAra krupAnidhi in gambhIRa nATa.
You render the songs in your sweet voice, and you are the kind of daughter who makes your father and family proud, no doubt. Are there others in Origala SharmAgAru's family who carry on the tradition by singing his songs? He is a prolific composer, and you have learned so many of them! Bless you. Will listen to more...

Namaskaramulu. I felt as if my father had sent the blessings through you. My pranams to you for the well said words about me. My father is not just my parent, but also my guru. I fondly believe that Mother Sri Gayatri made me render all the 86 kritis from Deviganasudha and upload them at http://ovrs.20m.com/ . All members of our family render the songs. But none gave a kacheri. My father established Gayatri panchayatana peetham at Kovvuru, West Godavari, Andhra Pradesh and my brother and sister are managing it. Navaratri is celebrated every year. I learnt you are a vaggeyakara. I listened to your songs rendered by musicians. They are nice.

THe posts here reach 10,000 but only may be 200 to 300 read it.
This hindu post will reach 4 million readers in one shot. Very well written kudos to the writer ARUNA CHANDARAJU.

http://www.thehindu.com/features/friday ... 365628.ece

In the article it is stated "Vimala and her sons have constructed a website from where authentic renditions can be downloaded."

Why the website is not mentioned in the hindu article (you missed an opportunity to tell it in the hindu the url of the website)?

Also this vageyakkara was recognized by many vidwans/vidushis in his era . YOu should have mentioned who are all the vidwans /vidusihs who sang his composition?(TRS is one may i know the rest)

VImala
I never knew you play violin , please answer the 2 questions?

Namaskaramulu

Thank you for your posting the url of article on my father in Hindu Newspaper by Aruna C.

The missing of the url / link is inadvertent. For the benefit of all readers the web site url is http://www.ovrs.20m.com and songs can be listened through the "Downloads" - section.

I donot play violin. The violinist in the picture published in the news paper is Ms A Satyavati. Today she is an artist with AIR / DD

Vimala
Sorry in the article it is mentioned "Among Raghava’s other disciples were his own daughters who performed as a duo, Vimala-Lalitha, for several years"; i read it fast - I misunderstood you as violinist till this article.

# The website is neat. Can you put a link saying musicians who have sing his compositions in concerts . Please tell the names of brilliant musicians like TRS etc who have sung , Possiblythe songs that they have sung and if there is a recording of they singing put that also

# Go to the hindu link and put the below comment . Hindu reaches millions of readers.

Saw on Vidushi Smt. Gayatri Girish's page that she received the "Jnanananda Teertha" Ogirala Veera Raghava Sarma Endowment Award this year! I am sure she sang a few of his compositions in the concert that followed.

Congratulations to the Vidushi! Seems ultra-special, as his daughter is a member of this forum!

Just now, I read your post.
Smt Gayatri Girish rendered ‘Sri gayatri, in valaji At the Jnananda teertha Ogirala Veera Raghava Sarma endowment award function organised by Visakha Music Academy on 29 Nov 2016. My brother and relatives attended the function I am given to understand that Raga alapana, Swara kalpana, neravulu and keertana were rendered exceptionally well. The award was funded by my sister, Smt Bharathi (4th daughter of OVRS). She gave the first award to Dr M Balamurali Krishna during Godavari Pushkaralu at Rajahmundry. In Nov 2015, VMA gave the award to Hyderabad sisters. They rendered padAraviMdamulE in praNavapriya and manasunA in bhiravi. They have been propagating praNavapriya for the last 2 decades.
