MSG passes away

A great violinist has passed away this morn.
M S Gopalakrishnan is no more and the arts world has begun to mourn his passing at his home in Mylapore in Chennai.

MSG, as he was fondly called passed away even as he was in the middle of the music he was born into in the Parur lineage.

Just over a week or so ago he was wheeled up to the stage at the Bala Mandir German Hall in T Nagar to be decorated with an award by Indian Fine Arts Society (IFAS). Despite his age and weakness, he chatted with rasikas and related to others here.
