Jayanti, P. Susheela and Tejaswini Ananthkumar
  Honor to Melody Queen P. Susheela

P. Susheela known for reverberating and resonant voice not just for South Indian movies but also in Hindi, was honored by Sangeeth Melody Orchestra last Saturday with the title Gana Saraswathi. Ravindra Kalakhsetra where the program was organized witnessed thousands of music lovers. It was a feast for her fans. Actress and politician Jayanti and Tejaswini (wife of Ananthkumar, BJP) were the guests of the evening. Abhinaya Sharade Jyanti honored P. Susheela with the title Gana Saraswati by presenting Saraswati idol and shawl. Senior journalist P.G. Srinivasmurthy gave an introductory speech. To conclude the function, there were a whole lot of live super hit songs by the legendary with live orchestra.

P. Susheela entered the film industry in 1952 through Telugu film Kanna Thalli (remake of Pethra Thai). Her father's ambition was to see her become as popular as singer M.S. Subbalaxmi. Today she has her own space in Indian cinema space and got name, fame and a huge fan circle. Though she stopped singing, her fans want her to continue singing. Susheela's contribution to South Indian film industry is incomparable. She has sung 40,000 filmy and non-filmy songs in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Tulu and Hindi and many of them are evergreen hits.

Aparna hosted this simple but well organized program. But it was sad that Jayanti and Tejaswini Ananthkumar who were there as chief guests to honor such legendary singer used this stage for their election campaigning too!
