Lakshman ji -> (about 'kanthan karunai puriyum vadivel' ,,, I am afraid, on both counts, your post may be wrong information..
a) about the Ramarajyam song.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JJfdVjjTYE

from wiki about Saraswathi Rane
She remained in the field till 1954. Her song from the Hindi film Ramrajya..`Bina Madhur Madhur Kachu Bol’ reached the peak of popularity all over India, and she was awarded by HMV for the highest sale of gramophone records in those times.

b) 'Kanthan Karunai puriyum vadivel' was composed on the request of Mani Iyer by Guhan.
http://stotraratna.sathyasaibababrother ... g/a148.htm

chitti (Sri.Sundararajan) of Manikkodi was a close friend of Mani Iyer at Trichy and Guhan was in that circle.

and further corroboration by an earlier thread in rasikas.org itself

----------------------------------------------------------------
I have been a target of ire by some in this forum , for my objection to the transliteration schemes for thamizh.
See the massacre here of that glorious song by a site which is well-meaning but unfamiliar with thamizh.

Thamizh lyrics for one of the most inspiring and thrilling songs by Madurai Mani Iyer. . Beemplas ragam does that magic in many of the songs ( his veLLaith thAmaraip poovil iruppAL' also partly owes its grand effect to the ragam and of course Barathy's lyrics) . (allied ragams like karnataka devagandhari , abheri and rathipathipriya also create that effect)

Dr.Pasupathy-> I have given link to your blog page on advts for MS records. Thank you. I could not however resist the temptation to use just one of those photo advts .
https://sites.google.com/site/homage2ms ... ms-records
I hope that you will condone.
---------------------------------------------------------
I used to wonder, why MS did not seem to have given any early record in aberi, karnataka devagandhari, etc so much a favourite of DKP. From the advt page, I learn that she had sung 'nagumomu' in 1936 itself. ( following Musiri'?)
Can we get a link to that 'vintage record?

Here's a scintillating excerpt of an RTP in (wait for it...) Sindhu Bhairavi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx0Ii4iBPj8

If only we had the entire recording -- I really wanted to see what an elaborate Sindhubhairavi ragam and tanam would sound like.

Varsha ji, I think, there is some mix-up. The 18 minutes piece is not shown as that of MALI. May request you to correct it? ofcourse, after downloading, the listeners can find which is which.. ..Nevertheless....

Dear Rajesh ,
Madurai Sri Pushpavanam Iyer passed away, if I remember correct ,when MMI was only 5 years old . There was no chance of even MMI recollecting his voice . How could Semmangudi Mama who was only 9 years at that time could remember it . Probably he could have heard it said from his guru Sri Maharajapuram Viswanatha Iyer !
Sri Madurai Pushpavanam passed away in 1920 and Sri Madurai Mani was 8 years old then. And he has also mentioned he heard Sri Pushpavanam sing at concerts.
That being so Sri Semmangudi would have been 12 years old. He also told me that he has attended Sri Pushpavanam's kutcheries and waxed eloquent about his singing.
Sri Semmangudi also speaks about this in his talk with Gowri Ramnarayanan, which she published. That article is with me.

Regards

I have heard the tv recording where SSI specifically mentions that he has heard Madurai pushpavanam in person and adds like MMI sings like Madurai pushpavanam.
