dated January 04,1955: Music Academy Sadas

Presiding over the Sadas of the 28th conference of the Madras Music Academy on the premises of R.R. Sabha Hall in Madras on January 2, Mr. M. Patanjali Sastri, retired Chief Justice of India, pleaded that linguistic intolerance should not enter the domain of music. The title of Sangita Kalanidhi was conferred on the President of this year's conference, Vidwan Chittoor Subramania Pillai. The Academy also honoured on the occasion Sri T.K. Sesha Iyengar, a prachina vidwan, Sri Annaswami Bhagavatar, a master in Harikatha, Prof. P. Sambamoorthi, the well-known musicologist, and Mr. E. Krishna Aiyar, dance and music critic. Mr. K.V. Krishnaswami Aiyar, President of the Academy, garlanded Mr. Patanjali Sastri. Sangita Kalanidhi T.V. Subba Rao, welcoming the gathering, said Mr. Patanjali Sastri was a great scholar, an eminent thinker and a person truly imbued with the spirit of orientalism. Sangita Kalanidhi Semmangudi Srinivasa Aiyar said the music of Vidwan Subramania Pillai was majestic and it was but fitting that the Academy had chosen him to honour this year.
