Family Counts

Family counts. That was the message that two young artistes, Saketharaman and Anwesha Dass who were decorated with awards by Kartik Fine Arts at the sabha's opening evening on December 1 shared when it was their turn to speak.

Young Saketharaman said that his parents have sacrificed and supported the careers of his sister Vishaka Hari, well known for her musical discourses and himself. He said he also owed it to his wife and his in-laws. "There were times when I wondered if I could continue solely with music," shared the young vocalist.

He also acknowledged the presence of violinist GJR Krishnan in the audience - Saketharaman and his sister were students of late Lalgudi Jayaraman.

Dancer Anwesha Dass said that besides her guru and her parents, her husband also supported her. The couple have had a baby and Dass has taken a break from her passion.
