According to The Times of India, Lalgudi GJR Krishnan has said that Pt Ravishankar came to Madras in the 1960s and heard Tiger Varadachariar sing. Small problem, Tiger died in 1950. Similarly a Hindu interview of TK Murthy in 2009 claims he attended concerts where his guru Thanjavur Vaidyanatha Iyer accompanied Ramanathapuram Poochi Srinivasa Iyengar. Big problem here. TK Murthy was born in 1924, Poochi died in 1919.This of course pales in comparison with dance where the years of contribution to the art are calculated from the time the terpsichorean was born. Well, almost.
