Message:MS -she can never be replaced.the kind of charisma she had and devotion and passion she carried for carnatic music is unmatchable. i had the opportunity of meeting her and singing a few lines in her presence... i was awestruck. may be she is not physically around, but her aura will always be there.


Name:S.Ravichandran
Message:Deeply shocked to hear about the sad demise of MS on 11th December. I still remember that golden moment when I was a small boy, I was blessed to hear her songs in a temple at Dalmiapuram (Presently Kalakudi Palanganatham) in Tamil Nadu.


Name:Ramanathan
Message:She is one of the greatest of musicians that India has produced so far. She is the one to be called as `Nightingale of India' which, unfortunately, has not been so far (atleast officiallt). To me, her alapanai of Simmendra Madyamam (Song - Raama Raama) is just outstanding. Though she moved to bhakthi rasa and sang more of bhajan songs of late (which perhaps is not of real carnatic nature), she has proved to be a great carnatic exponent. Though people will remember her Voice for ever (which is not that important for classical music), I prefer to see her as a great contributor and flag-bearer of Carnatic music who helped in spreading it to the whole world. May this country remember her and her contributions forever and not just on her day of demise. May her soul rest in peace.


Name:Pradeep Reddy
Message:Her talent was only excelled by her Bhakti and selflessness. She has shown to the world that only through selflessness and devotion will the pinnacle of human acheivement be reached. In this era of crass commercialism and greed her soul shone forth and through her all of us glimpsed a moment of truth and joy.


Name:anand gopal

Name:Mrs. S . Priya
Message:She was nice and her songs were touching our hearts. We miss her.


Name:ms. prasad.
Message:She is either reincornation of saraswati or she had a real darshan of respective god whom she was prising through her musical voice.Who ever she is,she is an angel who came down to earth to provide all of us parama santhi through her devinely voice


Name:Srinivasan V
Message:M.S. - the name that inspires every Carnatic music lover - I'm sure for the next 100 years (atleast) Carnatic music lovers will wake up to M.S.'s Suprabatha. I wish we remember her day of passage with some meaningful event!
