A magazine photo-article about M.S. Subbulakshmi / December 1996

In this season of classical Indian music and dance that is quietly throbbing across this city, I stumbled upon a back issue of a defunct "magazine" - The Hindu's "fo-li-o" - datelined December 1996.

The centre piece of this issue is a tribute to M.S. Subbulakshmi who turned 80 that month.

"M.S.", as she is usually referred to, is a legendary and timeless (Divine) voice from the South Indian Classical Music (Carnatic) tradition.

If you have not heard M.S. before, wherever you may be from, please do check it out.
