Nostalgic about NGS

It was interesting to read about Narada Gana Sabha, one of the pioneer organisations to promote many great artists and their productions in the three fields of fine arts. As a young girl, I remember my sister Priyamvada’s performance in the thatched premises of the Narada Gana Sabha (on yesteryear actress Ambika’s land). I cherish the photographs taken on that day. I remember well the discussion thereafter between the sabha’s committee members and my father, Dr. V. Raghavan, who was the Secretary of the Music Academy. They approached him with their proposal to use the Music Academy premises on a rental basis. At the Academy’s campus, it was a golden period for Narada Gana Sabha.
