Carnatic Music and San Thome? Sure enough, there was a connect – musicians who lived like Maharajahs, Maharajahs who were more musicians, composers, film stars, music directors and savants lived or visited here. This was as much of a heartland of music as neighbouring Mylapore.
Come join Sriram V on a journey down musical lane, on a walking tour of San Thome’s various musical locations, on Saturday, December 31,2016. To illustrate the music, we will have singer Ashwath Narayanan coming with us. The tour will begin at 6.00 am outside the All India Radio and will end at North Mada Street by 8.30 am. Breakfast will be at Saravana Bhavan. Charges: Rs 750 per head.

You are doing a very commendable job. I am from old Calcutta and came to Pondicherry in early 1960s and then roamed around , CMC-Vellore, Andhra, Madras etc. in persuit of higher studies in medicine and susequently ina job – at Jipmer,Pondichherry. I am in touch with another website — Poorano Kolkata — which dishes out similar interesting stories . In British India – Madras – Calcutta – Bombay were three sister cities and their respective growth curve and litany of visitors and their importance to each other are not very well known . There must had been many great characters — who had connections between Madras and Calcutta and vice versa and so also with Bombay. Average Calcutta person wont know what was the — native to and fro connections with Madras before Poet Michael Madhsudan Dutt’s Madras sojourn ! Similarly who were the native Madras Citizens who had Calcutta connections? Can you show some light in these gray areas. I was happy and surprized to see and know of your Calcutta connection — browsing through your brilliant reportage on 2016 – Durga Puja Days in Calcutta. I envy you , since I could not enjoy Puja days in Calcutta since 1961!!! With regards — nkm
