  1. Anyhow, completing 90 years is definitely not a joke. I join with others in sending my humble birthday wishes/greetings to Prof. S. R. Janakiraman,Karnatic Musician and Music Scholar. I also request Prof. S.R. Janakiraman to send me video clips of two or three concerts so that I can put it in the Facebook I am running.

    All his friend + me wish him to lead a happy, healthy life and further wish that he completes 100 years with the Lord’s grace.
