Vijay Siva on R.K.Shriramkumar

Mumbai works, delivers and earns 100%, Kerala and Bengal demand 100% returns and hardly work, Chennai works less but expects big. If there is one place on earth where people work more than 100% without an eye on returns, it is Japan. That is why Swami Vivekananda implored everyone to visit Japan and learn from the Japanese. Lord Brahma probably created R.K. Shriramkumar to be born in Japan, but made a last minute ad hoc decision to place him in Chennai! Nada and Veda are two important nadis of his Sanketi clan and knowing of Shriram’s life and passion for music and the Vedas over the years, you would have seriously thought of him as a prospective peethadhipati of some Mutt in South Canara! You would have rejoiced too, over the high probability of an exponent of nada, rather than one of the Vedas, adorning a peetham! But Shriram turned into a grihastha, marrying the Sankara Nethralaya karma yogi Akhila Ganesan and is now parenting a host of disciples. His house always reminds you of Kuchela’s home – minus the poverty, of course.
