Remembering Thirupoonthuruthy V. Venkatesan

Thirupoonthuruthy V. Venkatesan had a vision, and that was to spread the works of composer Sri Narayana Tirtha. He started a trust namely Thirupoonthuruthy Sri Narayana Tirtha Swamigal Trust and devoted his time to this cause.

His sudden death on April 22 last year, however, left a void in the hearts of the people around him.

To honour his contribution to the field of Carnatic music, his successors are organising a ‘First Remembrance Day’ programme on April 21 at Arkay Convention Centre, Luz.

On this occasion, a book on Thirupoonthuruthy V. Venkatesan with a compilation of tributes from musicians, organizers, friends and family will be released by several guests including MP La. Ganesan, bharatanatyam exponent Leela Samson, musician H. Ramakrishnan, psychiatrist Dr. T. R. Suresh and Visvajit Gaderao, Mirasdar, Thirupoonthuruthy.

The book release function will be followed by a tarangam music concert by Ashwath Narayanan, Sayee Rakshith, Kishore Ramesh and S. Krishna.

All are welcome. At 6 p.m. For details call 9940652208, 9840359056 or Email:
