திரைப்படம் - சாவித்திரி (1941)
பாடல் - பாபநாசம் சிவன்


தேவியை பூஜை செய்வாய் குழந்தாய்
தேவியை பூஜை செய்வாய்

தீரும் உன் பயம் எல்லாம் சாவித்திரி - தேவியை

மூவுலகிற்கும் அவளே ஜெகன் மாதா
முழு மனதுடன் நாள்தோறும் தவறாமல் - தேவியை

பூவுடையான் நாரணனும் முரஹரனும்
என்றும் புகழ்ந்து போற்றிடும் - தேவியை

பாவலர் கலைமகள் அலைமகள் மலை மீதில்
வண்ணக் கொலுவிருக்கும் ராஜேஸ்வரியை - தேவியை



Tamil Movie: sAvittiri (1941)
Lyrics: Papanasam Sivan


dEviyai pUjai seivAi, kuzhandAi
dEviyai pUjai seivAi

tIrum un bhayam ellAm sAvittiri - dEviyai

mUvulakiRkum avaLE jaganmAtA
muzhu manaduDan nALtORum tavaRAmal - dEviyai

pUvuDaiyAn nAraNanum muraharanum
enRum pugazhdu pOTRiDum - dEviyai

pAvalar kalaimagaL alaimagaL malai mIdil
vaNNak koluvirukkum rAjEsvariyai - dEviyai

SrinathK.-> This is a follow-up of your great appreciation of Baso mere nainanme . .I need to know the ragam of separate 78 rpm record by Smt.MS in 1946. 'Pyaare Dharsana '.. Who was the music composer ? S.V.Venkataraman or Piano Vaidhyanathan who gave us the Darbari Kanada Hari Thum Haro? One tube upload links Pyare Dharsana with Chandrakauns but another knowledgeable follower says it cannot be. I think, the ragam is same as 'Characharam' in Tamil Meera . .Can you please enlighten me?

Perhaps Cienu can help us out with his mother's help.

Respected Sir, I think, the baby is Radha and the picture could have been taken around 1936.. A petulant child and an affectionate , loving 'mother', enjoying the child's 'kopam'!..

varsha -> Sir, 78 RPM record ran for just three minutes per side. How much artistry goes into those three minutes if it is a ragamalika! Typical example will be the well known 'mAlaip pozhthinilae' . In the second part, Sindhubairavi, Mohanam and Nadhanamakriya. each just one minute , that too with some orchestration interlude, but brilliant exposition. ( easy to remember while identifying unknown ragam in other songs.) It is also an exercise for learners in identifying the ragam. A similar example is 'udal uruga, uLLam uruga' in Meera ( thamizh). I have given link. to the song. I think, the second stanza is Sahaana, and third Nadhanamakriya . but what is the ragam of the first stanza? I have been assuming that it is Poorvi Kalyani.( or Panthuvarali? more likely) I am not sure. and may be totally wrong. May I have your guidance please?

Ref. post 1261 by Varsha

Thanks a lot.

I could not download only 2.Jagatha Nandakaraka and 6.Enneramum; but I will try later.

I saw your posting now only and I have not yet listened to the songs;

but I listened to the RTP - Dhanyasi once again!

Sir, the problem with mediafire is it the underlying software computes some of the songs are part of a commercial album and stops us from downloading, eventhough the songs are really not.

I am not sure of the metadata that is looks to arrive at such conclusion.


Without the post RTP pieces, jagadananda and Enneramum, the duration of the kutcheri is 2 hr 39 mins.

varshaji, do we have any concerts which go more than 4 hours (or close to 4 hours) available?

Dear Rasikas,

Please find below a link to the Centenary Celebrations of Bharat Ratna M.S.Subbulakshmi at Philadelphia on Sep 10th 2016

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv_NF5Q ... e=youtu.be

I have written a brief introduction which I reproduce down under:

Quote:

" Date : Sep 10th 2016.
Place : Philadelphia - USA

On Sep 10th 2016 - Saturday, the Grand Niece of Bharat Ratna M.S.Subbulakshmi and the daughter of Smt Thangam & Sri R Ananthanarayanan , Smt Kamakshi Mallikarjun organised a most memorable tribute to her beloved Ammu Patti.

In this video Smt Nirmala Ramasubramaniam & Sri M K Ramasubramaiam share the extremely special relationship between their family and the Sadasivams. Their reminiscences are intelligently juxtaposed with appropriate (and rare) pictures.

Thanks for the upload cienu sir.

This must be the hamsanadam alapana that goes for around 20 minutes which MKR sir has mentioned in some of the earlier posts. Glad to hear some piece of it. :)

Out of curiosity, what were the 5 songs that were recorded? Assuming Bantureeti for Hamsanadam :)

Today it was an emotional episode detailing MS attaining the feet of the Lord whom she brought before the minds of listeners of her music. Podhikai deserves profuse thanks for running the serial.
