Indian Express is making some good strides of course they still have a long way to catch up With the other paper for margazhi coverage.

There was such a long interview of sanjay that url was also available for public consumption with a public url. I tried searching for few writeups in. The Indian Express with the supplement titled mayakkum margazhi to post it here . Our house has not moved from The H to The Indian E.

I just Googled for the write up ,it gives only a top page with just Title and Photo without the article .There was a lovely writeup on Radha and Mudhra Bhaskar when i saw the hardcopy which was distributed at Mudhra sabha in a concert that i attended few days back.

For now you to decipher the text with the picture and title Mudhra - A renaissance of art, culture and music. May be you all know how to also read the body of the content.

I saw a lovely list enlisting the achievements of Mudhra with the above 32 points. I just feel like adding points 33 to 36 to make up their suddha madhyama achivements

33. Mudhra introduced the concept of ticketing with food/coffee coupon attached as part of ticket in december season. That was lovely.No food wastage from organizers side , no over eating from rasikas . It is a nice move to make rasikas to focus on Music first than food.

34. They try sincerely some good ideas to promote music. Around 2007 to 2010 when they gave the hall for our rasikas meet. In those years very young upcoming vidwan and vidushis were given platform to sing for an hour and they lined up from morning to late afternoon with different ideas and themes. The patronage was very poor as they had evening slots and also with more competition from other sabhas . They decided not to pursue with it as it was not working with abyssmal footfalls in that noon and afternoon slots. They realized let us not have evening I and II slot like academy ngs etal instead let us just have one solid evening slot that starts at 06 15 pm. For me that is what i seek as i get atleast 15 to 30 mins extra music for sure that too during weekends that is perfect . All sabhas in the last 4 decades head in the direction of evening I and II slots .Mudhra is different they move back to only one evening slot in december.

35. One of the finest things they did is the hall acoustics . The RKM school hall that they have rented has lot of parking yes so that way they are better than the competition . But with the railway tracks nearby there used to be a lot of sound disturbance that too with long distance train horns in the years 2005 to 2010 . They came up with a lovely idea of putting an artificial barrier in that huge hall towards the last row that way considerable sound disturbance from trains is remedied. Right now we have great experience of full length ,no unobtrusive noise from railway tracks .

36.It is a miracle to see both husband and wife equally contributing to the growth of arts.They really keep a pulse on both rasikas and artists .They give enough time to test ideas and with mudhra running also a printing press they give adequate publicity . With their phenomenal achievements, They are possibly in the league of say SKGS - Yagnaraman , NGS - Krishnaswamy , Academy-Murali ,Aastika samajam- narasimhan sir etal .Their sincerity is always round the clock and they respect both the super accomplished artist and also to be soon super accomplished artist . For both they give a great and steady platform to perform and exhibit the art . A testimony for that is Trichy Sankaran LecDem,UKS Mrudangam Fiber demo in one side and also the young apoorva-anahita concert in evening along with bunch of accomplished stars. Their drama fest is also great(wrote two dramas here), for the very little i have seen them with drama artists they are doing great even with drama festivals.

Best wishes to Mudhra and @radha bhaskar . Let us see and more importantly hear how they ride from 2020 to 2045 with their son jathiswar . I see that their son jathiswar is taking up more role with their parents in mudhra sabha . Best wishes for him to take and run with ideas 37 to 72 . That is all going to happen in years 2020 till 2045.
