K V Narayanaswamy
Probably the only sketch (in pencil) of M.S.
Early years. Mid 1980s.
Lalgudi G Jayaraman
Shri VV Narasimhacharya from Kakinada, an expert committee member of the Music Academy in the past.
He always used to sit beside me when i sketched. (Prof. S Ramanathan was another). He used to describe in chaste telugu, the meaning of the various kirtanas, and shared various anecdotes about various singers.
One of the few persons from whom i took an autograph.
Kuttalam Viswanatha Iyer
Drawn at the request of Shri TT Vasu, who captioned it immediately, and used this as a card -- and returned the original later.
