Carnatic Music Extravaganza
The South Indian Community in
West Of Scotland were treated with a delightful evening of carnatic music concert on the evening of 1st of
September 2012 in Glasgow. The venue was the Hindu Temple Of Scotland in
Rutherglen in Glasgow which is a part of The South Indian Cultural Centre.
Probably this was a first such event in the West of Scotland for at least
over the last 35 years. Dr.S.Sunder from Chennai
who is a medical proffessor and a musician was
the vocalist. Dr.Sunder attained the prestigious
title of "Kalaimamani" in music in 2003.
He is one of the foremost disciple of Sangeetha Kalanidhi Vidwan Sri D.K.Jayaraman and achieved advanced training in carnatic music from Sangeetha
Kalanidhi Vidwan Sri T.K.Govinda Rao. He is well versed in Musicology and
has extensively travelled abroad teaching carnatic music and also performing to delighted
audiences both in India and abroad. When the audience in Glasgow heard him
performing at the Temple it was obvious that he is a master of his gift of
music. He also rendered BhaJans in Hindi,Tamil, Kannada and Telugu.
Sunder was accompanied in his concert on violin by Mr Nagarajalu,
a well known artist and a renowned teacher of
Violin. On Mridangum was
Mr Padmanabhan who is also well known for
excellence in performing at world stages and also for teaching his
students. Both Mr Nagarajalu and Mr Padmanabhan are established teachers at
The Oriental Fine Arts Academy of London. The combined performance of
the three wonderful artists was a treat for the hearts and minds of the
people in the crowded hall. These three proved their dedication and the
passion to carnatic music with continued
performance well beyond the allocated time by responding to the requests of
the delighted audience. It was quite amazing to know that Dr.Sunder had not met either of his accompanying
artists before the concert! The evening came to a close when the artists
concluded with a Thillana at the request of Dr. Sunder's mother and family who were amongst the
delighted audience. The whole event was further spiced up with tasty South
Indian snacks during the break, courtsey of
Banana Leaf the best known South Indian Restaurant in Glasgow.
All in all a wonderful
evening which will linger in the ears of carnatic
music lovers for a long time. The Hindu Temple is hoping to host such
events in future. Hope to see you all there.
I am sure many of us have
photos of the event. If you want further information give me a call.

Through the generous support from devotees like yourself, central

of these issues.
Unfortunately our permanent Priest had to leave to India unexpectedly
due to family reasons and he will be dearly missed.
This has forced us to revert to Sunday Pooja only and thankfully Dr.Prabhakar Bhatt had kindly stepped up to do the
Poojas on Sundays as before for which we are very appreciative.
This has further helped us to redress our present financial
