Birthday cake!

When was the last time you saw cakes being cut on a sabha stage?
Well, it happened last week at the opening evening of the music and dance festival of Chennai Cultural Academy in T. Nagar.

Soon after the guests and artistes were seated on stage, a cake was placed on a table and the emcee of the evening announced that the occasion was the celebration of the 80th birthday of Nalli Kuppuswamy, who is a big promoter of the arts. He was presented with a large garland of flowers and a flowery crown placed on his head and as he cut the cake, the emcee sang the birthday song.

Nalli Kuppuswamy celebrated the milestone in his life some weeks ago but the Academy's secretary for some 50 years who passed away recently, Dr. S. Natarajan had discussed with his team details of a grand event he planned for the arts patron to mark this birthday and so, to honour that plan, a symbolic celebration was held that evening at the venue - Rama Rao Kala Mantap, Habibullah Road, T. Nagar.
