Kanyakumari is a name associated with fame and unswerving focus to a cause. It conjures up images of the virgin goddess standing in eternal meditation on the southern tip of India. It is also the name of the versatile violinist selected to receive the Sangita Kalanidhi award from the Madras Music Academy. Music is meditation—not a pastime, but a passion for this lady wielding the bow on the four strings. She is an acclaimed accompanist, soloist, teacher, organiser and innovator who thinks out of the box yet retains the core values of classicis.
