  3. Thank you. I am deeply obliged to my boyhood years in Thanjavur, when my father was district judge there in the 1940's. We heard the vidwans and musicians of that age with delight: Maharajapuram Viswanatha Iyer, Semmangudi Sreenivasa Iyer, Ariyakudi, and others. My father, M. Anantanarayanan, was a founder of the Thyaga Brahma Sabha. He knew Telugu and explained many kritis to us. I never lost my reverence for the great composer and feel satisfied that though I am in my eighties, I can at least hear his songs with emotional sensitivity.
