Should have posted this blog on the month of september itself, but couldnt do it because of official work.
This was the status post I made on the month of september in facebook ..
5 + 6 = 11 + 6 = 17, Oh My Dear-o-Dear! September should be proud of itself! We are blessed to live during the time of the Illustrious Thirumalai Nambi Seshagopalan , My beloved Guru Maestro Guru Kaaraikkudi Mani and Legend Lalgudi Sri. G. Jayaraman... My sincere Pranams.
And this blog continues from there...
What's so special about the greatest of great musicians (TNS, Lalgudi, KRM)...
a. To keep it simple, These three musicians are the living legends and can never be compared to ANYOTHER MUSICIANS OF THE PAST OR THE PRESENT and FUTURE TOO. I think we (I) are all blessed to live during the time of these great carnatic Vidwans.
b. There are 10000s concerts that are floating on the net with famous combination, great combination, good combination, which are good, nice, soothing, and there is nothing called a “PRIME” combination other than TNS-Lalgudi-Manisir's concert.
c.Prime in the sense, They are inimitable
d.They cannot be compared to others, either being together on the stage or as an individual . One can say, they make an unbeatable Prime combo in the field of Carnatic music.
e.They are the only Virtuous Musicians, Quality Teachers, Best composers and top of it they are the BEST OF BEST PERFORMERS at any time in the history of carnatic music. A person can be a great teacher or best composer, but will fail miserably when it comes to presenting the same. These giants are best in whatever they do and bring the best out of anything they create in a matchless style.
Number Game ( 5, 11, 17)
a. They are Prime, Can be divided either by themselves or by 1.
b. The difference is six, Six is the number that differentiate their Birth day, but I feel, that is the number that bring them close to each other. Number six represents the like mindedness and friendliness. Like mindedness in the sense, they just think and live(ing) for music and nothing else.
c. The sum of 5,11,17 comes to 6, which is the smallest Perfect number.
d. 6 is the only number that is both the sum and product of three consecutive numbers ( 1*2*3 or 1+2+3)
e. There are 6 veda angas
f. Mind is our sixth Sense with six powers ( Reason, emotion, thought, awareness, knowledge and intelligence)
The Carnatic music world has seen many many many many musicians in the past, seeing good amount musicians currently and sure will see more and more musicians in the future too, But it can never see musicians like Lalgudi Sri Jayaraman or Madurai Sri T.N. Seshagoplan or Guru kaaraikkudi Mani.
18th and 19th century had seen three Great composers who enriched the carnatic music and 20th and 21st century is proud to have THE Best Composer, Best Musician and Best Teacher and Greatest of Great Peformers in the field of carnatic music. Sri T.N.Seshagopalan, Lalgudi Sri G. Jayaraman and Mani sir forms the “TRINITY” of Carnatic music for years to come.......
