About The Author

Joined as a Lecturer in 1984 she is at present the Professor and head of the Department of Indian Music, Chaiperson of the School of Fine and Performing Arts and a Member Syndicate, nominated by the Governor of Tamil Nadu.

She is an Academician who is a Vocalist in Karnatik and Hindustani Classical Music and she has specialized in Panniru Tirumurai and Multilingual Devotional Music. She has authored four books and has visited many countries, delivering lecture demonstrations and performing music recitals. She has released audio cassettes and CDs and has won titles like Isai Kalai Celvar and Kambar Kazhagam Award and awards in the Annual Music Festival in Chennai.

 

Foreword

It has been rightly said: “Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.” What better and lasting testimony to mark the Sesquicentennial year of our beloved mother institution, the University of Madras, than the publication of 30 commemorative volumes!

It is an honour and a privilege to pen the foreword to these volumes submitted by the Faculty of the University of Madras and the affiliated institutions. Keeping in mind that these issues are a lasting memento to the 150 year dedication of our Institution of excellence in Higher education and research, the books have been chosen based on their innovative approach, quality of research and skilful style.

Apart from marking an important landmark in the progress of our great institution, it is hoped, that these volumes will be a truly significant contribution to the academic ethos of our nation.

I thank the academic fraternity and our partners and collaborators for their cooperation and I congratulate the authors and all those who contributed to ensure that the commemorative volumes are released at the Valedictory of the Sesquicentennial celebrations of the University Madras on October 9, 2007.

A Lot of water has passed under the bridge since that wonderful day on September 5, 1857 when the University of Madras came into existence.

It is heartening for all of us to think that the best is yet to be.

 

Preface

I deem it a privilege to have both a student and a member of the faculty of the Department of Indian Music, University of Madras. I thank the Almighty for making me serve at the time when the University is celebrating its sesquicentennial Year, and our department, its platinum jublee both happening during 2006-2007. The department at present has expanded to offers post graduate courses in not only Indian Music but also in Bharatanatyam and Rhythmology along with a diploma course in Art Appreciation and Heritage Studies, and certificate courses.

I am happy that this special issue entitled “Musings of Music” is being released on this special occasion. Articles contributed in this special issue will be highly useful to Teachers, Researchers and Students as they deal with a variety of areas, in fine arts.
