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.

Enjoy.
