Thank you very much.
'Nannu paalimpa' ( mohanam") is siad to be the kriti associated with the picture. Thyagaraja was not aware of the visit by Ramchandra. It was his wife who had the bliss of darsanam. Ofcourse, we naver know.

When we sing Yhyagaraja kritis, there are two styles. 1) As prayer 2) As exploring the music.
In a normal concert, the singers just dont sing the kritis. but add raga alapana, swarams and such. But in any concert exclusively meant fot paying our respect to Saint Thyagaraja, the right tradition is just to sing a series of his kritis, where the composer himself, is giving stress on the devotional aspect rather than the art of music embellishments. With that in mind, I chose the following gems for a thyagaraja araadhana event.
I plan to give atleast 60 such moving kritis. ( in instalments) Not in any particular order.
1) sangeetha gnyaanamu ( dhanyasi)
2) upacharamu (bairavi)
3) koluva maragate ( todi)
4) janaki ramaNa ( suddha seemandhini)
5) Nannu paalimpa ( mohanam)
6) chakkani raaja maarga ( karaharapriya)
7) Namakusuma ( sriragam)
8) meru samaana ( mayamaLavagowLa)
9) kanaka ( varaaLi)
10)ksheenama ( mukari)
( to be continued)

I think, we can reach upto 100 kritis . There are a number of ragas having only one kritis by the swami. it so happens that many such kritis are classics! (ex) janakiramana ( suddha seemanthini) and saamajavaragaana ( hindolam). and a lot of ragams with non-familiar names.
-------------
based on the information in sangeethapriya site, i prepared a list of ragams used and the number of kritis in each such ragam.
Surprisingly, even THYAGARAJA SWAMI has used only about 60 very well-known ragams.
and the total number of kritis in each of those ragams when added up came to just 500 kritis.
-----
In a planned subsequent list, i will give single-kriti ragams and rare-ragams. the totla may not exceed 100!
------------
why not have thyagaraja swami's kritis as bench mark?
how many vovalists can really renderall the kritis?

Thyagaraja swami gave us many songs in special ragams but only one or two.
and the names of ragams are not very well-nown either.
that is no reason not to explore them.
because many hugely popular kritis are the only krithi in that ragam.
for exnmple nagumomu is the only krithi by Thyagaraja in abheri and so on.
---------------
This is an attempt to give a birds eye view of such ragams and songs for exploration.
there are 140 such ragams and 180 kritis because some of them have two or four kritis.
