An advice to Vidushi Aruna Sairam by my Octogenerian Guru Shri Moudhgalya.

Smt. Anuna Sairam.

Madam, As one who has been listening to Doyens
of Carnatic Music for seven decades now,
and as one who has witnessed the zenith and nadir
of many a Professional, I hasten to post this well-meaning
and time-tested advice.

I am in fact provoked to write to you
on reading a well-composed but eulogistic presentation
of your abilities and achievements by Roshne B
in The New Indian Express of 9th March.

True you have made a mark in the field of Carnatic Music.
But shuttling between cities and continents,
exerting yourself in multiple repertoires and
singing in 14 different languages, sorry to say Madam,
is a tall order and a bit too much.
And it shows in your voice.

Here is a true parallel.
Jesudoss made it big in a short duration.
His voice captivated everybody. He was much in demand.
He gave a concert many years back in Thyagaraja Vidwat Samajam,
Mylapore, near Madhava Perumal Koil.
He started well and carried the audience with him.
Midway, when elaborating Kalyani, his voice played truant.
Everybody in the audience felt his discomfiture.

Descending down the platform, he touched the feet of
Semmangudi who was present.
The Giant said to Jesudoss ."Wonderful Kutcheri.
But please do not exert your God-given Voice too much".
But the Harikatha Exponent, standing next to Semmangudi,
Mannargudi Sambasiva Bhagavathar, in typical Harkatha style said,
"Jesu, Pallu Ponal Sollu Pochu. Guard the gifted voice".

Madam, where is Jesudoss today?
Please do not exert your voice. Preserve it.
Don't go the Jesudoss way.
I wish you well.

Writeup of Aruna on Oct,06,2017. I was witness to her trinity pallavi that i listened and reviewed here- hmmmm. She certainly has a unique voice and has emote, but can back up more with music in line with this writeup.
