The moment we hear “Maadu Meikkum Kanna” , our hearts travel back to Gokulam and starts to think of Krishnar Umaachi… Tagged along with us in that journey is the vibrant voice of Padmasri Smt Aruna Sairam. So true… Isn’t it?
The moment that vibrant voice gets stuck with cold and cough, whom could she tag along for an exceptional concert journey other than Our Umaachi Thatha???
A devotee from the volunteer team of Sri MahaPeriyava Manimandapam, NJ USA initiative gave their brochure with Periyava Photo to Smt Aruna Sairam as she was entering the stage. Many times, we do not realize that it is not a photo, it is HIM…
Here is Smt Aruna Sairam sharing with us on what it meant to her during her concert at Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana Festival (#ctf2016) on Sunday, March 27th 2016.
Special thanks to Sri Mohan Murali of JANA SEVA (An organization with a vision to bridge the gap between the Urban and Rural societies in India through access to Education, Health & Livelihood opportunities) for capturing this special moment and sharing it with us.
This experience of Smt Aruna Sairam takes us back to a flash back of what MS Amma had to say about her experience during the United Nation concert.
குரல் கொடுத்த தெய்வம்!
குறை தீர்க்கும் தெய்வம்!
நடுக்கம் தீர்த்த தெய்வம்!
நம்மிடை நடமாடும் தெய்வம்!
அருள் புரிய வேண்டும்
அற வழியே போக!
Thanks to navEdaham – Ardent Devotee of Periyava and Sri Sivan SAR And a disciple of Triplicane Periyava for these beautiful verses on HIM.
