Blog : Week 57 Updates

Dear rasikas,

We are happy to be back with this week's update.

We have the regular quiz and swara sthana segment for this week and a full song as well.

One of our new rasikas had requested for Gopalakrishna Bharati songs, so this week's full song segment features the famous Abhogi kriti, 'Sabhapathikku veru deivam samanam aaguma'.

There is an interesting anecdote to this composition.  Once Gopalakrishna Bharati was visiting Saint Thyagaraja at Thiruvaiyaru. Thyagaraja was teaching his disciples a kriti in Abhogi and he eagerly asked Gopalakrishna Bharati what composition he has made in the same raga.  Bharati stood silent for a few minutes as he had not composed any kriti in Abhogi until then.  But not wanting to reply in the negative, he instantaneously composed this kriti and sang it in front of Thyagaraja.

Have a great week
