Her health had been kind of slowly ebbing away across the last fortnight. Was in touch daily with the family. The few occasions i have had in her presence have been wonderful, the affection and graciousness unforgettable.

We had to lose Golden Girl. What paatantara suddham. Years 2007 to 2012 she had quite a few concerts in ragasudha and one in tattvaloka and some times music academy .

I cannot forget 2 krithis that she sang in ragasudha or tattvaloka
kalakanTi katam hAram - nIlAmbari and Parvati nayakane - bowli, both swati gems, such mastery and bhava

Few YouTube uploads of tiruvananthapuram navarathri, one Nattaikurinji main and bhairavi (janani mamava)main was super . She had such fidelity Her legacy has to be carried out , i can think of few next generation grand daughter like musicians like Amrutha Venkatesh and NJ Nandini have to carry forward her legacy.

Condolences to her sishya parampara and her family. She almost lived like her Guru Semmangudi, rich with music and inspired many many to hear more quality music as she gave that angle of paadantara purity.

In the Hindu as well.

We've lost a Grand Dame of CM. May her soul rest in peace.🙏🏻
