Nellore kid makes a mark at Sunday Park Kutcheri
CHENNAI, April 2: For the first time, a school student from Andhra Pradesh came all the way from Nellore to present the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park at the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore as part of the monthly mikeless kutcheri organised by Sundaram Finance.

Accompanied on the Violin by Maddela Lokesh Babu (disciple of G Annaji Rao) and on the Mirudangam by Vadigala Santhi Kaladhar (disciple of Dhanwada Ananth), who were also from Nellore, 13-year-old Nimmala Hamsini, a student of Rainbow School, Nellore, presented a lively vocal carnatic music performance this morning between 6.30 a.m. and 7.30 a.m. at the Chess Square of the park.

Nimmala, who is learning music from Sangeethacharya Dr. Vyzarsu Balasubrahmanyam, presented compositions that included Sri Vigna Rajam Baje, Sri Guru Guha, Paridhanamichithe, Paluke Bangaramayena, Manavi Aalakincha and Allinodalu Rama.

Mr. C. Murali, Senior General Manager, Sundaram Finance, presented certificates and mementos to the artistes.

Launched in February 2006, the idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organised by Sundaram Finance 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. Around 1,100 children have presented Kutcheri till date.
