One group of margazhi bhajan singers is being missed this season

One familiar group who make the community of margazhi bhajan singers has been missed this season.

The group draws its heritage to musician-composer-singer Papanasam Sivan who used to lead a group in his time.

Sivam’s daughter, Rukmini Ramani used to lead this group of mostly women down the mada streets of Mylapore but this year she decided to give it a skip due to the virus situation.

“Some of us are old and we didn’t want to take the risk,”she said.

  1. It was divine experience to participate in the Margazhi Bhajan lead by Dr.Rukmini Ramani and sing in the group. Kapaleeswarar Gopuram, Mada veedhi, singing during dawn, Pongal vadai & tea by sponsors etc.are all ‘Perum Bagyam’ We pray Kapaleeswarar & Karpagambal to end the pandemic at the earliest🙏

  2. It is so sad that this year due to pandemic situation Dr. Srimathy Rukmini Ramani’s ( the great Legend Brahma Sri Papanasam Sivan’s daughter )group is missing . Hope the year 2021 will give a nice start and the situation will improve tremendously to celebrate many festivals and concerts in reputed sabhas by her along with her disciples, Rukmini Mami is a great source of energy for all of us .
