    Sruti Magazine’s contributions hailed

    The 400th edition of Sruti, a magazine devoted to Indian classical music, dance and theatre, was launched in the city on Thursday.

    Chairman of Indusind Bank and vice-president, The Music Academy, R. Seshasayee, who released the volume, said Sruti was much more than a news magazine.

    In the way it dealt with issues, it spared no one, not even the venerable Music Academy. Its contribution, he said, has been phenomenal not just to rasikas but also to artistes.

    Chairman of Sanmar Group and Sruti Foundation, N. Sankar, said he was proud to support the publications — Madras Musings and Sruti. He recalled that even way back in the 1960s, people wanted to move to Chennai to be in touch with Carnatic music. Even today, the city attracts many NRIs, who change their careers, and Sanmar and other organisations benefit, he said.

    Sruti Editor-in-Chief V. Ramnarayan said he was overwhelmed by the goodwill shown to the magazine.

    Bharathanatyam exponent and guru V.P. Dhananjayan said art journalism had taken a different dimension with Sruti.

    ‘Chitravina’ N. Ravikiran said the magazine was a pillar of strength to classical arts and had inspired several persons to start music and dance magazines.
