KODUNGALLUR: The Kerala chapter of Samskrita Bharati will confer the title of Kalakovida on actor Mohanlal for his contribution in the field of art, especially related to Sanskrit language. Shankar Mahadevan will be awarded the title of Sahrudaya Thilakam, according to a statement issued by Samskita Bharati.

The audio recording by Mohanlal for a Sanskrit music album is progressing in Kochi. It has topics on motherhood, Nature and patriotism. While Mohanlal gives the introduction for the album in Sanskrit, Shankar Mahadevan and Kalpana Raghavendar render a key song with the theme of popularising Sanskrit.

Sujatha, Madhu Balakrishnan, Harini, Aruna Sairam, Ramesh Vinayakam, Visalakshi Shankar and Karthika are the others who are associating themselves with the album. The music is scored by B R Shankaranarayanan and Satish Raghunathan.

The title Sahrudaya Thilakam is being given to Shankar Mahadevan in recognition of his popularisation of Sanskrit through music and literature.

Samskrita Bharati, a voluntary organisation devoted to popularising Sanskrit language, had earlier conferred the title of Kalakovida on G V Iyer and Kavalam Narayana Panicker while the title of Sahrudaya Thilakam had been awarded to Krishnasharma, Pattayil Prabhakaran and Yusuf Ali Kechery.
