A New Cultural Platform for All- Upcoming Contest registration details

Sri Sumukhi Rajasekharan Memorial Foundation launched its Special Monthly Programmes as “Kala Poshakam”, on 15th February, 2006, 5.30 pm at Narada Gana Sabha, Mini Hall,
T.T.K. Road, Alwarpet, Chennai – 18. The Doyens appreciated the efforts taken by the Mylapore Trio in perpetuating values & by promoting culture among the younger generation.

“Sathya Kala Poshaka Sundaram” was the title conferred on the Trio by the Bharathanjali Trust recently, for being the youngest promoters of art & culture. According to the Trio “Kala Poshakam” is dedicated for the same cause and it is a platform for children, youth & elders to exhibit their talents not only in Classical Dance, Music & Instrument but also in various other art forms. For the first time in the history of the foundation seniors & elders above the age of 22 are given an opportunity to showcase their talents under the banner of “Kala Poshakam”. Surendranath says that the response has been tremendously good & even artists from other states have registered themselves for the subsequent months.

The Foundation has been identifying and honoring Children & Youth in the Cultural Spectrum and celebrates the Balar Chithirai Kalai Vizha and Margazhi Bala Utsavam and they award titles like Sangeetha Bala Brahamam, Natya Bala Brahamam to deserving children.
