As part of the monthly Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organised by Sundaram Finance on the first Sunday of every month, 14-year-old Mahathi Baskar, a student of Smt. Shubha Ganesan, presented a lively Mikeless Kutcheri this morning between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. at the Chess Square of the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore.
The Kutcheri marked the beginning of the 15th year of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park that was launched in February 2006.
Around 1,400 children have been part of the Mikeless Kutcheri at the Nageswara Rao Park.
Accompanied on the Violin by G. Vagadeeshwar and on the Mirudangam by S. Aniruddh, Mahathi presented compositions that included Sakthi Ganapathim (Nattai / Rupakam), Kanchadalayadakshi
(Kamalmanohari / Adhi), Sri Venu Gopala (Darbar / Kanda Chapu), Sarasaksha (Pantuvarali/ Adhi ) and Madharpirakkanniyanai (Kurinjippan).
N. Srirmanan, Senior General Manager, Sundaram Finance, presented certificates and mementos to artistes.
The idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park is to provide opportunities to young budding talent aged below 15 years to present in front of an informal park audience amidst chirping birds and falling leaves.
Mikes and speakers are not used at the Kutcheri in the Park.
Sundaram Finance conducts audition to select the artistes to present the Mikeless Kutcheri. For details, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
