Kirtilals Celebrate Bharat Ratna M.S. Subbulakshmi centenary in Mumbai

October 3

At Kirtilals we have a tradition of celebrating art and felicitate artists.The Shanmukhananda Fine Arts and Sangeetha Sabha organized a six-day long performing arts and cultural festival to conclude the centenary celebrations dedicated to the Carnatic legend.

Known as the Nightingale, M.S. had a long relationship with Shanmukhananda Sabha.  The first song that M.S. sang at a public function in Madurai was Marathi abhang . She was barely ten then. Mumbai therefore was an ideal city to celebrate her centenary.

On the ground floor of the hall, a life-size statue of the singer greeted the visitors while her portraits smiled from walls. For the occasion, the hall also set up a permanent photo exhibition.



Mrs. Subbulakshmi has been intimately weaved in Shanmukhananda’s past, with several performances of her conducted in its auditorium starting from 1963. The institution also has Subbulakshmi’s 2500 sound compositions in their library.

To pay homage to the legend, Kirtilals curated an exclusive collection of jewellery that was displayed at the venue.

The celebrations jointly organised by Shanmukhananda Sabha and SangeetNatak Academy, began from September 12 and continued for six days. The highlight of the celebrations was a 100-member dance ballet, which paid tribute to the vocalist with dance presentations of songs from 10 languages sung and popularised by her. A 100-member group of violinists and other instrumentalists paid  homage to the singer.

Stalwarts like thumri legend Girija Devi, Ganasaraswati Kishori Amonkar, former actress Vyjayanti Mala Bali, dance exponent Yamini Krishnamurthy, Pandavani exponent Teejan Bai, Carnatic vocalists Aruna Sairam and Harikatha exponent Vishaka Hari were honoured with the Subbulakshmi Centenary Award.



Ms. Seema Mehta, Creative Directed of Kirtilals presented a specially made Ganesh Idol to each of the women achievers.

She also feted Padma Bhushan Begum Parveen Sultana, the renowned vocalist from the Patiala gharana on the final day of the celebrations.

Speaking at the occasion Seema Mehta said……..

“I’m not only standing here today because of Kirtilals which was founded by my grandfather in 1939, and he instilled in us through the generations the importance art has in our world of jewelry but also because of my Guruji Pandit Chitresh Das with whom I trained for fifteen years both in the US as well as in India. During my training in India, I was introduced to many stalwarts in the field of Indian Classical Dance and Music and hence we felt that supporting the centenary celebration of the great M.S. Subbulakshmi would be a great cause to support.”
