THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A function organised in the city on  Monday to release a book on the late M G Radhakrishnan turned out to be a meeting reverberating with the memory of the great music composer.

 The book, ‘M G Radhakrishnan, jeevitham,

sangeetham, orma’ was released at the venue of the Mathrubhumi book fest at Statue.

 Releasing the book, poet Sugathakumari said that she cherished the memory of the great composer ever since his teenage. She recollected that it was long back that she met him for the first time. She wanted him to compose a poem penned in connection with the installation of the Veluthampi statute in front of the Secretariat at the initiative of her father and freedom fighter Bodheswaran.

 She remembers that he had imbibed the spirit of the poem and given it a very apt tune without giving any pains. She still remembers that it was a “militant” tune matching the blood-bathed legacy of Veluthampi, who valiantly ended his life taking on the might of the British.

 Sugathakumari recollected that she had always been concerned about Radhakrishnan’s ill health and had advised him to take care of his health and maintain his god-gifted voice and talents. She released the book, a collection of reminiscences of the composer by his friends, near and dear, by handing over a copy to Radhakrishnan’s wife Padmaja Radhakrishnan.  Jaihind TV research editor Pradeep Panangad has edited the book.  Jaihind TV CEO K P Mohanan presided over the function.  Lyricist Bichu Thirumala,  music critic Ravi Menon, film director Sivan and Padmaja Radhakrishnan spoke. Pradeep Pananangad welcomed the gathering.
