Deepthi Suresh presents a lively Mikeless Kutcheri

Deepthi Suresh captivates audience with a lively carnatic music performance at Nageswara Rao Park

The chess square in Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore was abuzz with activity by 5am this morning with flower decorations welcoming the young Deepthi Suresh to the mikeless Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organised by Sundaram Finance.

Accompanied by J.R. Shraddha on the Violin and Santhosh Ram on the Mridangam, Deepthi Suresh, a class 10 student at Sankara Vidyashram, Tiruvanmiyur presented a lively one hour carnatic music performance this morning that captivated the morning walkers and music connoisseurs who had gathered around the chess square. It was heartening to note that not a single person in the audience moved during the entire hour of the kutcheri, such was Deepthi's performance.

Deepthi has been learning music from Smt. Padma Sandilyan, a disciple of the renowned musician Late Sri. KV Narayanaswamy.

Songs such as Sadhasivan Maindhaney(Hamsadvani Raagam, Composer Maharajapuram Santhanam), Madhura Madhura ( Attana- Oothukadu Venkatasubiar), Evaramaduguthura ( Kalyani- Thyagarajar) and Nalley Nallanal ( Kapi - Vednayagam Pillai) that Deepthi presented was well received by the audience and drew rapturous applause.

S. Mahadevan, Head- Personnel and Administration, Sundaram Finance handed over certificates and mementos to the performing artistes.

Sundaram Finance has been organising the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park on the first Sunday of every month for the last 3 ½ years.

The idea behind the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park is to provide a platform for young children below 15 years to display their musical talent. Mikes and Speakers are not used at the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park.

Sundaram Finance audition committee conducts an audition to select the artistes to perform at the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park.
