    Dr Ravi

  2. Namaskaram,

    Wish to highlight that Indru Namadhullamey pongum pudhu vellamey ( Thanga Padhumai ) also is another Arabhi based composition only by tht MSV-TKR in 1959. Can you please explore this song's beauty please.

  3. "Indru Namadhu ulllame" is a beautiful piece in Arabhi..the phrase "RMPD,P M,GRSND" bringing out the raga's flavour. Thank you for pointing out this song from "Thanga padhumai"..
