Hypocrites


P.S : I am not commenting about all the musicians, “THERE ARE FEW MUSICIANS” who are contaminating this divine field with such sinful act. It will not even take two seconds for me to write the name of the musician on this blog, I am not doing it because he has been already expelled from an organization and I don’t want him to be out of the music field too.

I am sure many of us know what is Arangetram? In simple words it is Debut on-stage performance of a student. There will be always a high-level of enthusiasm with the parents of the boy/girl when the dates of arangetram getting nearer.
Generally a mridangam arangetram will be divided into 3 parts.

Part 1 : Pre thani avarthanam
Part 2 : Speech by guests (Yeah! Few Hypocrites, Read it carefully not all are hypocrites)
Part 3 : Post Thaniavarthanam

I was really shocked to hear the speech by one of the “famous” mridangam artiste in one of the mridanga arangetram held recently.  The speech could have been better and it was just like his playing. I always used to think there is a huge difference between “famous” and “best” artist and this famous artiste was self-portraying on the stage rather talking about the performance of the kid.

Few questions came to my mind.
  1. Who wants to know if he has cancelled all his concerts and came only for the arangetram?
  2.  Who wants to know if he has “NOT” taken money to give a speech for arangetram?
  3.  Who wants to know if he is running a Magazine?
Many might feel that these things do not matter if they are said on stage. Yes! Yes! Yes! Hold on Please! I too agree this, IF AND ONLY IF they are true.

a. Coming to the speech, Sure he would have got concerts on the arangetram day, but sure he wouldn’t have got the money on par with the arangetram speech. Then why such a hypocritical talk saying “I came only for the arangetram by cancelling all concerts”…. And the talk continued like this… “Concerts may come any day.. But arangetram will not come all the time”. I really don’t understand his mindset.  The talk was very very phoney,.

b. The most shocking thing he said was “I am not here in as a cheif guest for money!”.. 
  •  I am not saying its wrong to give money
  •  It’s the duty of the parents to honor the chief guest to the maximum extent. 
  • The musicians should be treated with highest amount of respect”.
On the other hand,
  • The musicians should not talk rubbish on stage.
  • Should not talk whatever comes to mind, when he has a mic before him.
  • Should NOT talk as if he is a Buddha and others are terrorists.
  • Do not Self-Portrait. It looks really childish!
He knows to himself how much money he has got for the arangetram, yet on stage with no fear, no self-respect he was saying “I didn’t come to this arangetram for money” , that too in front of the audience, Parents, Kid. The fact is everyone knows that he is honoured. Why this double standards? 

He even went to the extent of saying "who ever writes bad about me  i dont care". Even i am running a magazine, i will write in that. I dont know for what context he has said that. To my knowledge he is not running a magazine. He might be thinking  "Thinnai peechu - Vetti kathai" as magazine.. God only knows.

Are such musicians needed in the field of divine music?  Only time will give the answer.
