monsoon music magic

MUSIC SHOWERS: Chennai based Carnatic vocalist Shreyas Narayanan singing at a concert organised by Thyagabrahma Sabha at Sahitya Academy yesterday.
By Aasish Venugopal

MUSIC aficionados of Thrissur were quite anxious that the monsoon be a cause for setting down the pace of music hub in the town. But an event arranged as a revival of an age-old music association proved it'll not be.

Shreyas Narayanan, a Carnatic vocalist from Chennai extended a two and a half hour vocal concert on Monday on behalf of Sree Thyagabrahma Sabha at Sahithya Academy auditorium. On the accompaniments, the supports were provided by Trivandrum Sampath on violin, Poovalur Srinivasan on mridangam and Vellatanjur Sreejith on ghatom. He opened his recital with an adi tala varnam in the raga begada with a short Alapana.

He moved on to Kharaharapriya with the kriti Ganapathiye karunanidhiye in adi tala itself. Next came, the oft-repeated Amba vani nannu of Harikesanallur Muthiah Bhagavatar in the raga Kiravani (Kirvani in Hindusthani genre and harmonic minor scale in western).

This was catered too with a short alapana which explored all the three sthayis (octaves). Muruga Thirumalmaruga Shanmukha treated with the raga harikambhoji served yet another great experience as he provided a niraval and Kalpanaswara (Kalpanaswaram is raga improvisation within a specific tala in which the musician improvises in the Indian music solfege - sa, ri, ga, ma, pa, da, ni after completing a composition) at the lyric Karunai kadale... A Sanskrit composition of Muthuswami Dikshitar Hiranmayim Lakshmim Bhajamiwas neatly dealt with an elaborate alapana of raga lalitha which evoked a meditative mood. The meaningful excerpt from the charanam sangeetha vadhya... was chosen for niraval as usual, with both first and second degree of speed followed by kalpanaswaras in doublets. Rama nine nanu of Thyagaraja in the raga huseni set in adi tala was rendered in a fast pace.

The pièce de résistance for the evening was Thyagaraja's Ethavunnara in Kalyani, tala of which is a double mode reckoning of adi tala (two kala). As it is inevitable, there was a broad delineation of the raga passing through all the three octaves with ease. Niraval was fixed at Sree Garuda... in two degrees of speed and the swaras in the first degree, triplets and doublets.

Srinivasan and Sreejith showcased an excellent taniavaratana that each phrases of srinivasan were awfully reproduced by Sreejith. Sampath exhibited a consummate artistry in following the rendition and dialogues.

Compositions that were added to Thukkadas were Kanakasabhai thirunatanam in surutti, pandarivara sakhya panduranga in misra mand; and shreyas concluded the recital with a composition of Purandaradasar, Narajanma bandhaga in the raga Madhuvanthi.

copa America fever in the city

Joy wearing Brazil jersey sells vegetables in the Sakthan market >>
By Vishnu Prasad

FOOTBALL jerseys are once again in style in Thrissur as the Copa America featuring the best of Latin American football kicks off in Argentina today.

Enthusiasm, however, has been dampened by the fact the tournament will not be telecast in the country by any channel.

Fans of Brazil and Argentina in the district, most of them have not had an opportunity to banter in recent years, are hoping for a repeat of the previous edition's final which featured the two heavyweights.

Argentina fans are now hoping to avenge the defeat they suffered on that day.

Joy, a vegetable vendor at the Sakthan market, wears his Brazil jersey these days.

"We are extremely confident of retaining the crown. There will be no bigger achievement than beating Argentina in their country," he said.

When asked about the preparations going on in the opposite camp at the market, he chose to take some friendly jabs.

"I do not think they've organised their jerseys and flags yet. They are usually very slow at this," he said.

Faisal, an Argentina fan from Ayyanthole, however disagrees.

"We have the best team in the world, with the best player in the world. No team which has Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero can be beaten easily," Faisal said.

He added that playing at home meant Argentina was almost certain to win the crown.

Unlike other editions of the tournament, there are other teams which are followed fervently. For instance, Uruguay's performance in the recent World Cup has won them many admirers.

"Diego Forlan won the Golden Ball award at the World Cup. I am supporting Uruguay as he is playing," said Gautam, an IT professional from Chembukkavu.

Manchester United's Mexican wonder kid Javier Hernandez has also inspired a few to back Mexico in the tournament.

TV channels though are yet to buy into this football fiesta. Copa America has found no takers for broadcast and the entire country will miss out on the games.

However, a few tech-savvy people in the city are planning to watch the tournament. "We will watch the games online through live online streams," said Vikas, an engineering student. He added that he has been watching India-West Indies series using this method.

"Anyone with a relatively fast broadband connection can use this method to watch the matches. It will not be too difficult to watch all the matches of your favourite team online," he added.

Voice of Akashavani Thrissur

M Thankamani


THE LISTENERS of Akashavani have been familiar with the voice of Thankamani for the last four decades.

M Thankamani, daughter of the renowned social reformer and writer of yesteryear Mullamanagalathu Raman Bhattathiripad, is now leading a retired life at Chembukkavu. But she hates to rest and often thinks of the days in which she was busy acting, dubbing and presentation of programmes.

She joined Kozhikode Akashavani in 1964. But she had to wait nine years to get a permanent appointment in Akashavani. Meanwhile, she was transferred to the Thrissur station, which had started independent broadcast during that period. She acted in many dramas such as Indulekha and Suryakanthiye snehicha penkutty.

Recalling those days Thanakamani says, "In olden times, we had paid much attention to the pronounciation of words".

Thankamani, who proved her mettle as a dubbing artist, won the state film award in 2001 for the film Theerthadanam. Her last film is Shaji N Karun's Kuttisrank. The prominent actors for whom Thankamani dubbed were Sharada (Rappakal), Suhasini (Vanaprastham), Nirmala (Oru Cherupunchiri), Aswathy (Swom), Archana (Piravi) and Mini Nair (Desadanam, Niyogam).

But the most unforgettable moment in her life is the dubbing for Kasturba played by Rohini Hattangadi in the Malayalam version of the famous film Gandhi.

In theatre, she worked with great personalities like PJ Antony, Balan K Nair and MS Namboothiri. As a presenter and drama artist at the All India Radio (AIR), Thakamani had bagged the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Academy award.

She also got the 'Best Tele film presenter' award instituted by Doordarshan. It was the telefilm based on the life Gandhian cum Freedom Fighter Late Padmashri Kumaran Nair that brought the honour to her. She won national awards of Akashavani for the programmes Mounam Meettum Thampuru, Sooryayanam and Karmanyevadhikarasthe in 1982,1992 and 1994 respecitively.

Born and brought up in a Nambudiri family at Shoranur, Thankamani had her schooling at Chittur Govt Victoria Girls High School. Her ambition was to become a Hindi teacher and she completed Hindi Praveen course which was equal to BA. But she was fated to become an announcer and was quite happy in the world of sounds.

"When I accept a character, I'll mentally be with that", says Thankamani, who is eagerly waiting for characters.

Prayer for Rajinikanth's comeback

Mubarak, a die-hard fan of Rajinikanth, selling lottery tickets in the city.
WITH his special cycle cart decorated with the photos of Rajinikanth, Mubarak has become a familiar face to Thrissurites. He is a die-hard fan of 'Style Mannan' Rajinikanth.

He was in the news when he offered 101 coconuts to Vadakkumnathan for Rajinikanth's recovery from ailment. He is offering 1,001 more coconuts to the God on Friday for Rajinikanth's health.

For Mubarak, a native of Tirupur, Rajinikanth is everything in his life. He named his cart, which is used to sell lottery tickets, Padayappa, one of the hits of Rajinikanth.

He said that Thee was the first film of the superstar that he had watched when he was nine years old. He watched the film Basha for 120 times! He says that Basha was screened at Tirupur for a whole year.

Mubarak says he can't even count the number of times he has watched films Chandramukhi, Sivaji and Enthiran.

He says he doesn't like any other heroes in Kollywood. Yet he was found at Girija Theatre watching Suresh Gopi film Collector. "Now, we are all set to welcome Rajini's next film Rana and no doubt it will be a super hit,'' he said.

Mubarak, who is physically challenged, has visited Rajinikanth three times, but he could not make it this time when Rajini was in hospital.

"I had gone by my cart to see him and he advised me to come by train next time. We had spent half an hour and Rajinikanth gave me Rs 20,000," he said. He has no words to describe the moment when he saw the star for the first time.

He has formed a Rajini fan club in Thrissur. He says that around 51 people will participate at in Friday's programme. He is living with his wife and has two children. Mubarak is happy now because the superstar is back with more energy.

Grand Old Man of Nayarangadi

Before the advent of supermarkets and the grocery shops round the corners, Thrissur's one-stop shop for pulses, rice, sugar, chilly, jaggery, and such, was Nayarangadi and Ariyangadi.

Though Reliance Fresh and City Super market has sine blossomed, the rustic old shops still continue to be. And there are people who choose to do their 'purchases' from those very shops despite all the changes that have washed over the city.

Eightynine-year-old A John has been running his shop 'Anchery Lonappan Ouseph & Kakoo' at Nayarangadi for the past 73 years. "My grandfather started it, and I'm carrying it forward. The shop must have been here for at least 85 years," says he. Today his nephew Joseph helps him with his business.

Nayarangadi hasn't changed much, as most other parts of Thrissur have, but John observes quite a few changes.

During his grandfathers' time, goods from Bombay used to reach Vanchikkulam here, via boats from Cochin (Kochi). From there, bullock carts would carry them to the shops. Today lorries crowd the streets of Nayarangadi.

Ra. One to set city screens afire today!

Shah Rukh Khan's greatly publicised Ra. One, claimed to be the most awaited film this year, reaches the city today. The film is expected to be an awesome Diwali cracker for Khan fans.

Youngsers are already jiving to the rhythm

of Chammak Challo since its audio release took place well ahead of the movie's release. Trailer of the movie has also proved a super hit with the devout.

In the city, the movie will be released in both Girija and Ravikrishna theatres.

There is widespread confusion about release of the film's 3D version. There are reports that the 3D version release may be postponed.

TM Ramakrishnan, manager of Girija, said that the movie will be released today but "it is doubtful whether it will be the 3D version. Maybe, the 3D version will be shown after the matinee show".

Sanjeev N, a college student, says, "We are so excited about Ra. One. We will catch the first show itself. Of course, this is going to be a Diwali blast!"

Sakthan to get new life in celluloid

The story of the legendary king of Kochi, whose exploits are an unforgettable part of Thrissur's history, will take on a new life in celluloid. The film Sakthan Thampuran will be based on a book of the same name by writer and former Kalamandalam secretary Dr Kalpatta Balakrishnan.
More than depicting the story of a great king, the film will deal with the personal conflicts in Sakthan's life.
"It will be no formula masala movie packed with stunts and such," sources close to the film makers said. Director Fasil's son and Chapakurish-fame Fahad Fasil will play the role of the king, while most of the other characters will be new faces.
The film will have a budget not more than Rs1.5cr and will feature scenes like the 'Pooram' to add colour to it.
Engandiyur Chandrase-kharan and Samson Kollady will take care of the songs.
The shooting will start in March in various parts of the city under the banner of Thrisivaperoor Films.
