Rajesh,
A nice piece about a great artiste! What an illustrious life!
As you would have guessed, I feel happy reading that his debut performance was accompanying my uncle.
VVS,'s pronouncement came true, and with his penchant for words and his ready wit, Vikku was to him a pearl found in Tutucorin, once a renowned place for sea pearls...

very nice article..... I think KGS has done well to honour Vikku this year with the lifetime achievement award.
Arasi, I was not aware that Sri VVS was your uncle. I had the pleasure of meeting your aunt Smt Jayalakshmi Santhanam in Cleveland.

Mahavishnu,
Whereas, I knew your aunt even as a child!
If you go to VVS's thread or the Arasi thread, you will see the connection!

Interview with Vikku Vinayakaram
http://www.thehindu.com/features/friday ... 585460.ece

Few of my relatives from triplicane have learnt some kind of percussion with a very nominal or zero fees from Vikku and his appa. Their family indeed has a big heart in teaching students.
