CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan has said that K Raghavan, who died on Saturday, was a rare genius who had presented music containing native virtues. In a condolence message issued here, he said  Raghavan master of Thalasseri had lived in different parts of the country and led a life of a progressive-minded person.

“A life with an interest in football, music in his mind and progressive thoughts, Raghavan Master left behind an eventful century. His songs such as “Sakhakkale munnootte” had  helped in social change,” Pinarayi said. 

He recollected that the song Raghavan master had sung during the reception accorded to the Russian cultural team at Mananchira square had become part of a film. His songs always succeeded in touching the hearts of common men.

Meanwhile, Purogamana Kala Sahithya Sangham (Forum for Progressive Artists and Writers) expressed condolence over the death of music director K Raghavan. In a condolence message,  Sangham president U A Khadar and general secretary V N Murali said that Raghavan Master liberated light music from the grip of the style of other language songs. “He also took care not to lose the beauty of the lyrics,” they said.
