The greater you get, the greater you get. Even Ghantasala would be surprised
at what people have unearthed from his songs. For example, did you know that
they had therapeutic value? Here's someone who spent a decade and another half
proving that. And he claims to have cured people too!
Kalanidhi, a musical institute founded by Laxmi Mohan, a reputed classical singer,
is organizing a musical program called 'Ghantasala Swarayagam' today. This is
being organized in co-ordination with Sharat Chandra, the young and talented
man of the Sharat Melodies fame, who has researched for 14 years the late Ghantasala
Venkateshwara Rao's style of singing, and established its efficacy as a therapy.
An ardent fan of Ghantasala, Sharat sings his songs at every opportunity, and
is now known as junior Ghantasala! He is quite popular for being able to imitate
any song of Ghantasala perfectly. An he is at ease with all forms of singing:
devotional, ghazal, duet, romantic and classical.
In the program, he will sing with other talented singers of Kalanidhi. And this
is a free for all - any interested singer with a good voice can come and sing
