Fine Performance by Anupama at Sunday Kutcheri

It was a surprisingly rather cloudy morning in Madras. 13 year old Class VIII student of DAV, Anupama from IV Cross Street RA Puram had arrived at 6am ahead of her maiden Mikeless Kutcheri.The regulars at the Sunday Kutcheri were seated on the Chess Stools by 630am.

Not showing any sign of nervousness, Anupama began the kutcheri with Valachivalachi
(Navaragamalika).It was pleasing to listen to the cool and composed teenager render so beautifully some of the popular compositions.

Accompanied on the Violin by J. R. Shraddha and on the Mridangam by Sumesh S Narayanan, Anupama displayed maturity far beyond her age. Her confident performance was much appreciated by the music connoisseurs and early morning park walkers.

Compositions Anupama presented included Thyagarajar’s Sriganapathini (Saurashtram- Aadhi), Deeskhitar’s Sri Parthasarathy (Suddha Dhanyasi- Rupakam), Papanasa Sivam’s Singaravelan (Ananda Bairavi- Aadhi) and Narayanatheerthar’s Reremanasa (Kapi-Aadhi).

TT Srinivasaraghavan, Managing Director, Sundaram Finance Ltd., presented certificates and mementos to the performing artistes.
