Great way to pay homage to the Carnatic Music Composer Shri Thyagarajaswamy


A day long Thyagaraja Ustavam was celebrated on March 15th 2008 at the Hindu Temple, Colorado. It was the first of its kind that was celebrated under the initiation of Mrs. Priya Hariharan. Thyagaraja forms the trinity of the composers of Carnatic music, the other two contemporaries being Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri. He has given absolutely new dimension to the music form.

The program started with the Pancha Kritis, the five most popular gems out of the 600 kritis by the Saint, rendered by Mrs.Gayatri, Mrs.Priya Hariharan, Mrs.Gouri Nandakumar, and Mr.Ganeshan. The afternoon session has performances by various children. The Utsavam offered a total of 35 events including a dance ballet by Mrs Puja Allepalli for one of the famous Thyagraja Kriti "Seetha Kalyaname". This was the highlight of the day. The facial expression and the description of decoration of the wedding of Lord Sri Rama and Sita Devi was depicted wonderfully in the ballet.

A big team of volunteers supported the event by arranging the food for the attendees. Three cheers to Mrs.Priya Hariharan and her team. What can be the better idea to honor the works and pay homage to the great Saint, other than such high performing program. The large crowd of over 200 clearly depicted that Colorado is looking such great programmes going forward.
