 : As part of the monthly Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organized by Sundaram Finance, 14 year old Jayendra Kumar, a class X student of Vidya Mandir, Mylapore presented a lively Mikeless Kutcheri this Sunday (Feb 4) morning between 7am and 8am at the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore. Today’s Kutcheri marked the beginning of the 13th year of the Sunday Kutcheri that was launched in February 2006.


Jayendra Kumar, who is learning music from Smt. Padmini Ravi, was accompanied on the Violin by M B Divya (Guru B U Ganesh Prasad) and on the Mridangam by A Rohit (Guru Thiruvarur Bakthavathsalam).


Jayendra presented compositions that included Muthuswamy Dikshithar’s Swaminatha Paripalayasumaam (Naattai/Adi) and Subrahmanyena Rakshithoham (Suddha Dhanyasi /Adi), Saint Thyagaraja’s Vidajaladura (Janaranjani /Adi) and Ninne nera Namminanura (Panthuvarali/ Roopakam), Shyama Shastri’s Marivere gathi (Ananda Bhairavi / Misra Chapu) and Subramanya Bharathi’s Vellai Thaamarai  (Bhimplas/Adi).


V Kumaraswamy, Head- Deposits, Sundaram Finance Ltd., presented certificates and mementos to the artistes.


The idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park, that takes place on the first Sunday of every month, is to provide opportunities to young budding talent aged below 15 years to present in front of an informal park audience amidst chirping birds and falling leaves, sans mikes and speakers. Around 1200 children have been part of the Kutcheri in the Park series.


Sundaram Finance conducts audition to select the artistes to present the Mikeless Kutcheri. For details, email: sundaykutcheri@sundaramfinance.in
