Songs to cherish

Nagabharana and Sudha Murthy.

This programme called Old Is Gold, which was organised by the Suvarna Channel, offered an opportunity to people to relive some of the best songs of yesteryears from the legendary singers.

Padmabhushana awardee P Sushila, who has lent her voice for several chartbuster songs, was elated to participate in the function. She was all smiles and rendered all her songs with a similar gusto. Hoovu Cheluvella Nandenditu, Viraha Nooru Nooru Taraha from Edakalllu Guddada Mele and Muddina Giniye Baaro from the film Belli Moda directed by Putanna Kanagal, were some of the songs she crooned.

The audience jumped joyously when L R Eshwari arrived on stage. She too, did not disappoint them and sang some energetic songs like Rasika Rasika. Sudha Murthy, the chairperson of Infosys Foundation, who was present at the occasion enjoyed the songs to the fullest. “Even though I am old, I am young at heart. These singers take me back to my younger days. I am looking forward to listening to the song Joke Nanu Balliya Minchu by L R Eshwari,” she said.

Manjula Gururaj evoked memories of her popular songs Olage Seridare Gundu from Nanjundi Kalyana and Preetiyalli Iro Sukha Gotte Iralilla from Anjada Gandu. Ratnamala Prakash, a sugama sangeeta artiste sang Santasa Araluva Samaya and some other melodies.
