Sangeetaa Sthalam-s - 4 - Heritage Landmarks in Music
Tyagaraja sanctified Bunder
Street by his stay and it is
also said that he sang Devagandhari raga extensively during
his tenure in Sundaresa
Mudaliar's house. Leaving the
enchanting strains of that
musical memory, if we come
back to Flower Bazar police
station, we see King George V
looking rather forlorn and sad
over what is now a parking lot.
As a statue, he is quite intact
and well preserved, though the
hand that holds the orb is
often used by political parties
for tying banners and flags.
Today passers-by hardly spare
a glance at this statue, but there
was a short period when George
added colour to Carnatic music.
