DH article – Seethalakshmi Venkatesan

It’s been five years since my guru Seethalakshmi Venkatesan passed away on 18th November 2012. She was a huge influence in my life and I learned much more than music from her – lessons that extended beyond the classroom and her gentle guidance on how to be a better human being. They broke the mold when they made her. It wasn’t easy writing this article as I always felt it wouldn’t do justice. So when my husband agreed to write this piece with me, it turned out well.

She has an impeccable sense of timing that separates exceptional performers from the merely good. Age hasn’t dimmed either her voice or enthusiasm. For the rest of the article that appeared in the Deccan Herald, click here.
