Remember V Ramakrishna? The old playback singer that used to be a contemporary
of Ghantasala was also a disciple of his, and has sung over 5,000 songs. And it
is only befitting that he should be felicitated at the Ghantasala Aaradhanotsavalu.
Held by the Sri Veenapani Sastry Kalapeetham, this day will see the singer honored
with a swarnakanakadharana, a kanakabhishekam and a "Cine Gaana
Kalanidhi" title. There will also be seva puraskars to 8 persons who have
done work in the arts (lalitha kalalu).
The evening will start with Ghantasala songs by Nanduri Laksman's troupe. The
chief guest will be P Chandrasekhar, the law minister, and the other guest include
Babu Mohan, Udaya Bhanu, Sai Kiran (of Nuvve
Kaavaali fame) and Vijaychander. Please contact 760-3238 for further details.
