Yes...a very nice article indeed. In the picture, I think it is Vijaya on the tambUra...Radha's dancing partner was Anandi, right (Kalki's daughter, and Gowri Ramnarayan, the author of the piece's daughter)? Gowri eventually took Radha's place as vocal accompanist to Smt. MSS during the last few concerts.

MS Subbulakshmi-AIR-Ramanavami Recital part 1

part 2 to follow
Coolkarniji, Thanks for this Ramanavami Gift.

In the Part I, The opening sloka about Rama's birth with all the astrological details as given by Valmiki Ramayanam and "ADa mODi ( Charukeshi) " has been included in one of the Cassetes( Pack of 4) brought out by AIR few years back.

The description by AIR, Comperer before each song is recited by MS gives an additional religious ferver for Sri Ramanavami.

Is it ATa mODI (always makes me think of ATTA and chappatIs) or '[mATal]ADa mODi galadE'?

Musical Super Star!!!!!! Dats our beloved MS amma who is not with us here 2day.....But her golden voice is always eternal..... Sangitha Kalanidhi, Bharatha ratna , doctorates were some awards which gave her fame ....But her inevitable bhakthi is not all that same.. Her renderings such as Suprabhatam, Vishnu sahasranamam shows what an artist she was..... every composition she sang has its own rasa.... I would insist rasikas to experience that joy... Thanks to all the uploaders who have made contributions to various sites by uploading unknown albums..... Especially MS ammas unknown concerts by Vasu sir in the site sangeethamshare..... Speaking about her and praising her is not big but preserving what little she has left for us through her music is very important...... Guys if u accept my words , do give a visit to all the sites like sangeethapriya....download your favorites and dive deep in the ocean of naada sudha rasa......

Agreed.
You are one of those rasikAs on the forum with a long name. When I first read it, shak(e)s(peare)creative came to mind. Another poet, I thought...

I have heard her render written speeches and seen in Ramon Magsaysay web site when she was awarded Mgsaysay award.But normally she replied to felicitations only by singing stating that she is not good at speech

NO...Smt. Subbulakshmi did not compose any songs, and AFAIK, she did not set compositions to music either. Her forte was to make us 'see' the sublime with every note that she offered as a prayer to the divine.

Hello Rajeshnat,
i am posting at rasikas.org after a hiatus of more than a year. i did attend the concert u have spoken abt. it was truly a very emotional time for all present, including the immediate family members of Radha Mami & MS Amma. infact i clearly remember an eminent vocalist (no names taken) sitting behind me, who was moved to tears almost thru out the function and the ensuing concert. Radha Mami's voice (though low in Sruti, due to the vagaries of age & the body) still hark back to that wonderful time when she & Amma used to mesmerise audiences into an aural universe of Divinity. Karttikeya Gangeya the main piece, the alapana preceding it and the neraval and swaras ensuing, were proof of Radha Mami's superior musical knowledge. she has indeed trained her granddaughter, Aishwarya, very v ery well. the young girl's crisp and intelligent swara excercises as well as her innate intuitiveness to pitch in where her grandmother found it difficult to sing, was admirably similar to her grandmother's abilities in her heydeys, while accompanying Amma. not a dry hall in the auditorium at the end of the concert. and infact, Mr. Shrinivasan informed me the next day that it took Mami an hour to negotiate out of the hall after the concert, considering the huge horde of rasikas waiting to congratulate her and her granddaughter!!. hope my details were helpful.
sincerely

sorry*not a dry eye in the auditorium* also Mrs YG Parthasarathy's comment in the end was truly the icing on the cake!! she said that Radha Mami's music reminded her of Pattammal's music (due to the low pitch - something we all felt), but the bani was pure MS. to quote her: "Kural Pattamma odu aana bani MS odu". Radha Mami's reaction was priceless!!

M.S. with Sundaresa Iyer and Trichy Shankaran in RLV Academy, Tripunithura
Hello Srikris,

I am a new member .

This is with reference to the two photographs posted on the MS chapter.

You seem to have got the names of the accompanists wrong.They are not Tiruvalangadu Sundaresa Iyer and Trichy Sankaran on Violin and Mridangam respectively.

The Mridangam artist is V. Nagarajan (the great Kanjira Maestro) who used to play Mridangam for MS till an accident prevented him from using the right hand. It was Sri . T .Sadasivam who suggested that he play the Kanjira using the left hand.

The violin Vidwan is R.K.Venkatarama Sastry , (grandfather of R.K.Sriram Kumar) who accompanied MS in the years 1945 to 1960.

I am not sure whether it is RLV Academy in Tirupanithura (are you sure?). Seems to be Jaffna in early 1959. MS is peforming without her daughter Radha as the latter had been blessed with her first child Chandrasekhar .

Regards

Thank you, Ravi.
We see the great dance guru Vazhuvur Ramiah Pillai too.
Is that Radha's sister Vijaya sitting behind Radha? I don't see Anandi in the picture (who danced s a duo with Radha).

Anandi may have been in the other half of the stage...Don't know if that half-face belongs to Vijaya...
Mikeless, and very informal! And did you notice how intently Smt. MSS is looking at Radha?

Yes!! Quite an interesting combination of expressions in her face. The fact Radha is looking straight ahead adds to the charm!!
