Thygayyar, eppadi Ramanai potri Thanjavur veedhila pichai eduthu padittu irundhaaro, appadi patta kalai illaye.”(This enterprise is all about promoting tickets proper, will not it’s thought-about a music if sing to God? How Thyagaraj sang praises of Lord Rama within the streets of Thanjavur whereas begging, such is the artwork of singing.)

I is probably not as well-known as Kamal Haasan, but when I could be accountable by being this thorough, he ought to be accountable about what he’s saying, too. He’s nicely conscious of this type of music and has learnt beneath Dr M Balamuralikrishna. He can’t damage folks’s sentiments in an effort to get low-cost publicity. It appears to be like like there was a malicious intent to his assertion because it was completely out of context. Over 16,000 folks have signed the petition, and I hope it turns right into a PIL. He has to apologise.”
Bharat Sundar Says
“There are fundamental factual errors in what Kamal spoke. Sri Thyagaraja didn’t beg for alms or earn his dwelling by singing songs. Unchavrithi is dharma and it shouldn’t be belittled. I do not need to strategy this situation in a sentimental method or assign any agenda to Kamal’s assertion. All I’ll say is it’s factually flawed, and it might be good if he apologised or rephrased what he mentioned.”
Ramanathan Iyer Expresses
“Kamal’s comment was misplaced and pointless. Nonetheless, demanding an apology is giving an excessive amount of significance to this situation. Sri Thyagaraja’s legacy wants no validation. I simply really feel we’re giving Kamal Haasan extra mileage. Sri Thyagaraja’s legacy is monumental and no one must defend or assault it,” mentioned Bharat, a carnatic singer.
Gayathri Venkataraghavan Shares
“Unchavrithi merely refers to renunciation. It included group participation, the place folks donated small quantities of rice, pulses and so on to saints/bhagavathars, who had been solely concerned in singing/praying for common welfare. And this isn’t equal to begging. It was a singular technique to convey collectively the Lord’s devotees” mentioned the vocalist.
