With a zillion heavyweight awards tucked away under his belt, this sexagenarian in the field of live music is better qualified than most others to author the book : Lalita Sangeetam - 80 Sangeeta Saraswata Malaya Marutalu.

His own sagacious understanding comes from being the music director at AIR for 30 years till 1997, having composed over 10,000 songs and sung over 8,000 songs. Record breaking in sheer numbers, it definitely is, but a look at the numerous felicitations bestowed on him will show the impressive quality of his work.

The Annual Akashvani Award for Shiva Tandavam in 1977 and Universality of Music in 1979, a certificate of merit by Akashvani for the music scored for Kalachakragamanamlo Kapota Kalakujitaalu in 1989, Ghantasala Sangeeta Samsmaranam Sangam Award in 1999, Sri Gyana Saraswatam Academy Lifetime Achievement Award, The Legend Of Live Music Award, Gandharva Kala Nidhi title and Madhura Swara Nidhi title, are but a few of the tongue-twisting and hefty awards won by him.

Some of the movies M. Chittaranjan has lent his voice to, are Kuladevam, Vidhivilasam, and Suryachandrulu, while he has composed music for Manamahatmudu, Sri Yadgiri Laxmi and Narasimha Mahatyam.

The book itself captures 100 years of the history of live music, originating in the western world, progressing into our culture and helped along by the medium of cinema. Essays and opinions by veterans such as S. P. Balasubramaniam, Balamuralikrishna, P. B. Srinivas, P. Susheela and even R. Balasaraswati Devi, the first playback singer in telugu cinema, make this book an extremely valuable compilation.

As expected, this function will be a starry affair, what with the chief-guest being Mr. Satyanarayana Rao and Dr. P. B. Srinivas, Jamuna Ramana Rao etc. being present as well.
