An evening with Isaikkavi Ramanan: big draw at R. R. Sabha

Isaikkavi-uddan or Inniya Malai ; is the theme of a series of talk-singing programme that Rasika Ranjani Sabha in Mylapore has been hosting every month.

The hugely popular and multi-faceted Isaikkavi Ramanan holds forth on stage, with a judicial mix of theme-based excerpts from the epics and the Kural, from Bharathi’s verses leading to personal anecdotes of his own journeys, lacing this with old Thamizh songs he sings solo and full-throated on stage.

On the evening on March 15, the show drew a full house in Hall No.2 at the sabha premises as Ramanan glided through God and Man, Man and God, early school experiences and those with sants and dipped into Bharathi and film songs, and touched on the corona virus.

But he also had to tell the audience that the April session stands suspended due to the advisory to avoid community gatherings and if all was well, the series will continue in May.
