The fourth Madhuradhwani-Music Festival was Inaugurated by Dinamani Editor Shri Vaidyanathan, Nataraj IPS, Asthika Samajam V Narasimhan, and Vedanth Ramanujam

Shri Kannan was the MC and effectively played the role, while vocalist Cuddalore S.j. Jananiy sung the invocation song composed by Dr BMK in Kanakangi raga

Mr Narasimhan through his ever charming talk brought back the memories - naming of Sabhas and the music of yesteryears vividly, of how rasikas used to walk miles to hear concerts – crossing the paddy field and stories. while returning there were no lights and to drive away the fear how they used to discuss the ragas sung during the concert.

He appreciated Shri Arkay Ramakrishnan playing the role of an one man army like what the Station Master of Namanasamudram  in Pudokottai district where he used to arrange to everything for the passengers

While Nataraj IPS appreciated the efforts pointed out Sabhas playing the role of a bridge between the musicians and rasikas.

Dinamani Editor Shri Vaidyanathan appreciated the efforts and making a landmark and also reaching the audience across the world through his webcast.

Shri Vedanth Ramanujam(Auditor) gave vote of thanks and said how Shri Arkay encourages by giving top priority for young upcoming artists.

About Sabhash - Everything about classical music, dance, drama and a platform for inclusive entertainment is the one-stop destination for the latest news and information on the performing arts of India - classical music and dance, theatre, bhajans, discourses, folk performances, and other lesser known art forms. Institutions that revolve around the performing arts have exploded in numbers, and thanks to the Internet which has made information easily accessible, the number of rasikas has grown too. Corporate patronage has played a big part in increasing the world-wide reach of the Indian arts. Sabhash wishes to be a platform for inclusive growth giving an equal opportunity and recognition to not only the main performer but also the artistes who accompany them on stage, and the people who work backstage and play the role of unsung heroes.
