About the author:
LAKSHMI DEVNATH is a well-known researcher and writer in Carnatic music. Her articles and features numbering close to 200 have featured in leading publications like The Hindu and Sruti – India’s Premier Magazine for the Performing Arts. Her passion is to familiarize the young with India’s glorious heritage through innovative stories. An earlier effort of hers in this direction, Poorva – Magic Miracles and the Mystical Twelve, that narrates the stories of the Azhvars and released in 2007 was a runaway success. The projects that she is currently involved in include Poorva in the Vedic Age; Sargam – a fascinating journey into the world of Carnatic music and this pictorial biographies series. Her other books include – A Class Apart, the biography of the educationist Dr. (Mrs.) YG Parthasarathy and Lotus – a monograph written for danseuse Anita Ratnam. Lakshmi’s full-fledged biography of the living legend Sri Lalgudi Jayaraman is due to be published by Harper Collins shortly.
The issue on M.S.Subbulakshmi (M.S.Subbulakshmi - The queen of song) has been endorsed by Radha Viswanathan (M S' daughter and disciple) “The biography on Amma has come out wonderfully well and I am sure that kids will love reading this. One must commend the author for her lucid and smooth-flowing narrative for bringing out in an encapsulated form all major events in Amma’s life”
Each book includes free autographed Picture Card of the artist.
