Have you had people so impressed by you in one meeting that they choose to write a book about you? Okay, sorry about that. For Balu, however, it's all in a day's work.
Madhuram Cultural Association is organizing a book release on 2nd November, at Ravindra Bharathi. And as part of the function, Padalani Undi 2005 winners, Bhakshakaruni Sai Charan and Chitra, will sing S P Balasubramaniam's songs.
The book, Balumukha Pragyashali Balu, is written by B S Jagdish. He met Balasubramanyam when he took his son Charan for the Padalani Undi shooting. In his book he not only describes the singer's career but also the hardship he faced in becoming one. Jagdish has divided the book into three parts: the first describes Balasubramaniam's singing career, the second gives his résumé and narrates the hardships he faced, and the third dwells upon why he is known as the descendant of Ghantasala.
Madhuram was established in 2002, and organizes cultural events. For further details, please contact B S Jagdish, Secretary of Madhuram, at 2742-6521/94409-01973.
