Tyagaraja Swamy Aradhanotsavam

Sri Thyagaraja is one of the greatest musical prodigies amongst the Carnatic music composers of South India. His Keerthanas about Gods are of delicate spirituality. He composed his first song at the age of 13 and soon reached the summit of musical fame. He spent most of his time doing pooja and singing his compositions, inspired and infused with Rama bhakti. Aware of his approaching end, he took Sanyasa. On the 10th day of his Sanyasa, he merged with eternity in 1847.

‘Thyagaraja Aradhanotsavam’ was observed with devotional fervour in Jubilee Hills Public School on 31th January 2017. The Principal, Ms. M. Varalakshmi, the Academic Director, Ms. G. Sree Devi and the other dignitaries, lighted the lamp and invoked the Lord’s blessing.

Aradhana means to offer. To offer homage to the great saint, five pancharatna keertanas were selected and sung by the music teachers and students, dressed in colourful traditional dresses which infused a festive and spiritual ambience to the atmosphere. The programme ended with ‘Mangala Aarathi’ to Sri Thyagaraja. The Principal, Ms. M. Varalakshmi appreciated the music department, students and teachers for presenting a wonderful programme.
