Akashvani and Doordarshan have a special significance as the grand old National Public Service Broadcasters and both of them have very rich and glorious history. Almost every renowned singer, celebrated dancer and distinguished and eminent writer have been associated with Akashvani, especially in the 1940s-70s and beyond. Many of them were associated with Doordarshan as well. Doordarshan has also contributed to the blossoming of many Film Directors, Artists, and Producers. PB Parivar calls upon each of its members to join hands in building up this data base and saluting our veterans and send such stories at pbparivar@gmail.com.

  2. I assure that nobody can achieve the central government services in the karnatic field of mridangam played by my great father Maha Ra Sri Kalaimamani Thanjavur R.Ramamoorthy. Even now in his 89 years,whenever he fallen sick ,If we sons and daughters played the records of Mahan Sri Madurai Mani Iyer and Sembai vocal,Violin Rajamanickampillai accompanied with palakad Mani Iyer mridangam program.That will recover him from his illness.
    As his daughter,am not in the field of karnatic music,I admired his eagerness and longings towards karnatic music even today. He is the LEGEND in Mridangam
