Music is the contribution of India’s eternal culture, opined Dr. Bhashyam Swamiji.

He was speaking at the valedictory function of Surabhi Ganakalamandira Charitable Trust’s silver jubilee celebration ‘Surabhi Sambhrama’ at Mysore Vasudevacharya Bhavan on JLB Road in city yesterday.

Music and veda have an unbreakable connection. Music is equal to nectar. It is helps a person fight sadness and depression and revives him. Music helps maintain mental balance, he said.

Speaking after inaugurating the programme, Star of Mysore Editor-in-Chief K.B. Ganapathy said, art and culture is necessary for a civilised society. In olden days, kings and rulers encouraged music, art and literature. In the same way, now they are being promoted by organisations and associations. Only dedicated people like K.V. Murthy can become art patrons, he said. On the occasion, he released the souvenir ‘Rajata Sambhrama Sinchana.’

Industrialist Jagannath Shenoy, who also spoke said, knowledge does not mean just reading and writing. It includes music and dance too. There is no fixed time to learn it. It is a continuous process. Only then can music and art grow.

Surabhi Sambrahma celebration President and art patron K.V. Murthy was present.

Prior to this, Vid. Krishnamurthy & troupe presented a Mangaladhwani Nadaswara programme followed by Karnatak music vocal recital by Vidu. Dr. Sukanya Prabhakar.
