Carnatic in Corona Times – Episode 10

As we are now staying home, many of us are reading while others are listening to stories. One of the stories that have stayed with me from childhood is that of Anjaneya or Hanuman. Just as the armies of Rama reached the southern tip of India and wanted someone to cross the ocean towards Lanka, Hanuman stood there for a moment doubting himself. Then he was reminded of his own inner strength. And just as Hanuman did, let us remember the inner strength that lies within each one of us in these pandemic times. Here is a Tamil song about Hanuman by Guru Surajananda presented as a ragamalika (Madhuvanti, Bhageshri, Sindhubhairavi and Revathi).
