it is highly incorrect, not acceptable and objectionable.
In other words, you disagree! ;)

But... so do I, and I am surprised at the quote.

I hope that some people realise soon that Musicians have a right to stick to their views and don't need to model or remodel their styles according to what those 'rasikas' find acceptable or unacceptable.

The style is not the problem, but doing away with the tradition is the crux of the problem and this rasikas serious misgivings and objections is related to this aspect of KM. The performer has the freedom to avoid neravals, which majority of the performers are doing. But to give reason of 'meaningless', is objectionable.

I was extremely happy to read the news/report that APGovt/TTD has decided to confer very special honor of Life time Asthana Vidwan title ( BMK is already a TTD Asthana Vidwan). I wish that AP Govt/TTD organizes the event befitting BMK's stature, in the same manner they did for the other recepient, Lata Mangeshkar, if not better.

In the photo,I can recognize the ghatam vidwan (Vikku VinAyakaram) , who is the mridangist and violinist(by any chance is that his stock violinist Annavarappu ramaswami)

I think i raised this earlier too. though not a major issue but to just keep the records logical. Dr BMK had started performing at age 8 and he is 80now. He was not a performing widely inthe last few years (may be for 6 years? ) Even if he had been performing for 68 years and performing daily it would have been only 24820 concerts (add another 20 or so for leap years). Considering that he had to travel to chennai from Vijayawada by train that took almost a day he could not have perfomed on a daily basis. or he should have performed more than one concert per day. with his film commitments and overseas commitments would this have been possible?

Is my surmise correct or am i wrong some where?

If this is not worth discussing please ignore

Here is song of Dikshadar in the Ragam sauviram. This was a recording from AIR.

Pallavi
sarasa sauvira rasanadi karana -

the one who appreciates the delectable raga sauvira; the lord of pushpavana;

Samashti Charanam:
The sundareshwara form at madurai, adored by hari, Brahama and Indra; the form that is guruguha and others; the one beyond the 3 qualities and is the form of shakti.

Rajesh - I was wondering who (Prof) Ramanamurthy was too as he sings well. Lovely to see quite an elaborate Carnatic rendition in a movie! I used to have the soundtrack LP from this movie. I don't think my record player works anymore however!

The playback singers for the movie hamsagItE were Dr. BMK, and Smt. MLV, with lovely dancing by the kalAkshEtra-trained Smt. Jayalakshmi Easwar. The story, IIRC, is about a vidvAn, played by Sri Anant Nag, who pawns his bhairavi rAga, as well as a love story between him and a rAja nartaki.

I thought Hamsageete, the movie was released earlier than 1975.

DVD (or VCD) was available in Bangalore - I was delighted to find one during one of my trips!

Movie was based on a novel of the same name by Ta Ra Subba Rao (known as tarAsu) a very popoular writer of his generation. Many of his stories were based in Chitradurga, the historical locale of Madakari Nayaka, Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan.

Movie was directed by G V Iyer (who also made Shankaracharya and Madhvacharya movies in samskRita language in the later years)

I believe the character of Bhairavi Venkatasubbiah was purely fictional.

I have also wondered about Prof Ramana Murthy - I have not been able to find more information about him.

Some of the Jayadeva aStapadi-s in the movie are very melodious.
