L&T and music
CHENNAI, January 24: Construction and engineering giant Larsen & Toubro has chipped in with its own contribution to the cause of music during the season this time around. A Panchangam calendar was released by L&T some time ago. This calendar saw music given shape in strokes of brush and colours by 94-year-old vidwn S. Rajam, who is also very good in painting. The 72 Melakartha Ragas saw colourful interpretation across the 12 chakras. As a progression to this calendar theme, a small pocket-sized booklet took further shape. This booklet depicts the ‘ragalakshanas’ of the 72 Melakartha ragas and with the 12 chakra’s of ‘the mind, body and soul’. Thousands of booklets were circulated during the season.

This ABC of melakartha booklet is useful for students as well as the learned musicians. Those who wish to have copies of the booklet may e-mail - or drop a line to V S Ramana, General Manager & Head - Corporate Communications - L&T - ECC, Mount Poonamalee Road, Manapakkam, Chennai - 600 089. India.
