Originally, Sri T N Seshagopal was expected to perform. Due to his illness, he was not able to make it and Saketharaman was the last minute replacement for TNS. Both Sri M Chandrasekharan and Sri K V Prasad was gracious enough to accompany the upcoming artist. He has not disappoint the crowd, gathered to listen to TNS. It was an opportunity for the young lad to get such an accompanying artists at this age and I would say, he made the most of it, winning appreciation by none other than M.Chandrasekharan, himself.  I have always noticed his ability to sing amazing sets of swaras for every krithi and this time was no exception. The kalpanaswaras followed the hamsadhwani and Bilahari were superb. Main krithi in Thodi, the same krithi Sri TNS enthralled the Odukathur audience a couple of year back, was dealt with delicacy. I thought the swara singing were rather short for the grandeur of this raga and krithi.  K V Prasad and Amruth gave another superb taniavartanam fitting to the display by the main artists. There was a surprise in store by means of a short and beautiful rendering of Yamunakalyani raga followed by ‘Krishna nee begane’.

    SAHETHARAM WILL DO WELL TO SING FEW SONGS ATLEAST, OF PURANDARADAS . IT WILL MAKE THE PROGRAMME MORE DIVINE AND GIVE ELEVATED TOUCH.
