Shwetha delights park audience with Thyagarajar kritis
CHENNAI, March 7: As part of the monthly Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organized by Sundaram Finance, 11-year-old K Shwetha Charan, a class VI student of National Public School, Gopalapuram,
presented a lively Mikeless Kutcheri on the morning of March 4 between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. at the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore.

Mikes and speakers are not used at the Kutcheri in the Park.

Shwetha, who is learning music from Smt. Indira Raghavan, was accompanied on the Violin by Sangeetha Parthasarathy (a disciple of I. Venkatesvaralu) and on the Mirudangam by Ajeet Sridhar
(a disciple of Chromepet G. Suresh).

Shwetha presented compositions that included Thyagarajar’s Marukelara (Jayanthi Shri / Aathi), Yosanaa (Darbar/ Aathi), Rama Rama Nivaaramu (Anatha Bairavi / Aathi), Koluvai ( Deva Gandhari/Aathi) and
Rama Ninnu ( Mohanam / Aathi). She also rendered Muthuswami Dikshithar’s Ramachandram (Vasantha / Roopakam) and Papanasam Sivan’s Naan Oru Vilaiyaattu ( Navarasa Kannada/ Aathi).

P. Viswanathan, Company Secretary, Sundaram Finance Ltd., presented certificates and mementos to the artistes.

Launched in February 2006, the idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park, that takes place on the first Sunday of every month, 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, sans mikes and speakers. Around 1,200 children have been part of the Kutcheri in the Park series.

Sundaram Finance conducts audition to select the artistes to present the Mikeless Kutcheri. For details, email: sundaykutcheri@sundaramfinance.in
