I think , this vintage song has gone out of circulation in the web. Kalki had written a rave review about this. It is in Yadhukula Kambodhi. Likely that it is not in the commercial catalog now. Let us hope.

Sri.Mahesh ji, This thread being dedicated to Smt.MS, I was referring to her rendering. Vintage classic. (I had also referred to Kalki's ( not the magazine ) 'rave review.

posted by 'yours truly' . very recently. But I am not sure that tube may allow that to be there for long!
-----------------------------
Chellappa Sir, -> Thank you. For the lyrics etc kindly see

-----------------------------
It so happens that 1940-1960 decades saw MS,DKP,NCV,MMI,Alatthoor, GNB , and MLV and many other great artistes at their sweetest phase. and they are all in 78 rpm commercial records. Because of copyright issue, it is very difficult to share them. I am afraid that the gems will be lost for ever in near future.
Copy right cannot last for so many decades! ( 1940 to 2017)! The company can atleast donate all the vintage 78 rpm recorded music to tube as they have done for many of NCV songs. and Meera songs recently.

That is Madras Lalitangi Vasantakumari sitting on the floor. Next to MS I think is Saraswati Bai, the harikatha exponent and the turban is a muslim musician, forgot his name.

The photograph is actually yours RaviSri (from 1934) - viewtopic.php?t=20990&start=75#p238664 - it appeared in google search and I thought of posting it here

The muslim musician is Ustad Nazeeruddin, a court musician of Holkar State in North India.

And MLV it is - so that's a rare photograph. Just how far back in time can photographs take you!

Yes, thank you. 1934, Music Academy conference it was. But before posting such pics I think we have to be careful about the so called copyright of the Music Academy and The Hindu, which claims it has a permanent right over the photos. They wont publish these on their websites, either The Hindu or the Academy, so lazy and irresponsible are they, but the jokers will pounce at people who do that on sites such as these. So this site should take out these photos if the big guns start jumping up and down like monkeys. If the snorers ignore this, then let the photos be.

A very sweet article by Smt.Anandhi about the dance arangetram of herself and Radha.
https://www.msstribute.org/people/aduvome-paduvome.php
( very nice writing. No wonder. She was Kalki's daughter)
The article is however in Thamizh.
I found that a rough translation in English , of that article is available in

Post by suriyanmr » 04 Oct 2017, 20:23

Now i could get no information regarding this in internet. can anybody throw light on this aspect.

From Amrtavarshini

திரு எம். ஜெய ராம சர்மா

நான்மாடக் கூடலிலே நம்எம்எஸ் பிறந்து
நாடெல்லாம் சென்று இசைபரப்பி நின்றார்
தேன்போல பாட்டிசைத்து தீங்குரலால் கவர்ந்தார்
திசையெங்கும் சென்றுசென்று திரும்பிடவே செய்தார்
தான்பாடும் பாட்டுக்களைத் தரமாக எடுத்தார்
ஊனுருக உணர்வுடனே உயிர்கொடுத்து நின்றார்
வீண்கர்வம் தனைவிடுத்து மேலாக நின்றார்
மேதினியில் கானமழை பொழிந்திடவே செய்தார் !

கந்தர்வக் குரலாலே கானமழை பொழிந்து
இந்திரனும் இறங்கிவர இங்குஇசை வகாடுத்தார்
மந்திரங்கள் அவரிசைக்க வானவரே புகழ்ந்தார்
மண்ணிலுள்ளோர் மனமெல்லாம் மாவிசையாய் புகுந்தார்
சொந்தபந்தம் எல்லாமே இசையெனவே நினைத்தார்
சொர்க்கமென சங்கீத உலகினையே கண்டார்
பந்தமுடன் தன்மனதில் பக்திதனைக் கொண்டார்
பாடிநின்ற அத்தனையும் பவித்திரமாய் ஆச்சு !
பாடிநின்ற இசசக்குயிலாய் பலவிடமும் சென்றார்
தேடிநின்ற செல்வமெலாம் சேவைக்கெனக் கொடுத்தார்
நாடுதனைப் பெரிவதனவே நற்பாட்டு இசைத்தார்
நல்லபல பணிகளுக்காய் நாளெல்லாம் உழைத்தார்
திருப்பதியில் அவர்பாட்டே துயிலெழுப்பும் பாட்டு
தினமும்நாம் சுப்ரபாதம் கேட்டுவிட்டால் திருப்தி
உமைபாகன் சதாசிவமே உறுதுணையும் ஆனார்
உலகமெலாம் இசையாக இருக்கின்றார் அம்மா !
இசையென்று சொல்லிவிட்டால் எம்எஸ்ஏ வருவார்
வசையில்லா இசைகொடுத்த வரமெனவே வந்தார்
அசையாமல் மேடைதனில் அவர்பாடும் இசையை
ஆராலும் இவ்வுலகில் அசைக்க முடியாது
நிலையான இசைகொடுத்து நீடுபுகழ் பெற்றார்
நெஞ்சமெலாம் எம்எஸ்ஏ நிறைந்துமே விட்டார்
அவர்பாடும் பாடலினை ஆசையுடன் கேட்போம்
அம்மாவின் இசைப்பாதம் அனைவருமே பணிவோம் !

Respected Chellappa Sir-> (@1344)When I joined the forum, I did not know that there were many in the forum who could speak thamizh but could not read / write in that language. Also quite a few whose mother tongue was not Thamizh but quite conversant with thamizh songs and yet unable to read/write in thamizh. I was reprimanded and advised to post in thamizh section. After understanding the problem rather belatedly, I stuck to the rule as much as possible. I do hope that rules apply to all without exception.
May I suggest that you post this poem in thamizh section and give a link here? That may be a good solution. You can give a brief transliteration and translation here ( just a few lines) and then the link. Better solution is to put things in your blog / website and give link. Excuse me if I am wrong.

Can anyone tell me if a review of " Seva Sadanam" (1938) appeared in any magazine ( including Vikatan) ?
I know that Kalki wrote two reviews of "Sakunthalai" . Is there a book in which these two reviews can be found?

Yes Rajeshnat,

This is the first time a Rs 100 coin is being released (minted) on a musician. I am not sure if there have been coins minted earlier for great composers of the past. With regard to the procedure for procuring the coin, I am in touch with the concerned people and will post in Rasikas for the benefit of those who wish to preserve the coin.

The Rs 100 coin would essentially be a collectors item
The Rs 10 coin would shortly be widely available in circulation

Postage Stamps and First day covers will also continue to be there
