Donation to Flood Victims in AP/Karnataka



[spbfans] SPB Fans Charitable Foundation - Donation to Flood Victims in AP/Karnataka


For Photo Slide Show

Dear friends,

I am happy to share with you that an amount of Rs 75000 has been donated to Indian Red Cross by SPB Fans Charitable Foundation for the flood relief activity in AP and a similar amount to The Red Cross, Karnataka.

On 31.10. 2009, four of our Hyderabad members of SPB Fans Charitable Foundation, i.e Chaitanya, Mangalampalli Vijay, Mrs Usha and myself have met Justice Lakshman Rao, State Secretary, Indian Red Cross Society, AP State Branch, Hyderabad and handed over our donation cheque of Rs 75000 on behalf of SPB Fans Charitable Foundation. Justice Rao was extremely happy and appreciated our contribution and said that the money would be used genuinely for the flood relief activities. A letter of acknowledgement and reciept have been issued to us for the amount.

Justice Rao, went on to explain various activities of the IRC in AP and requested voluntary work for a couple of hours every week for participation in the social welfare causes being undertaken by IRC. He said if today's youth could spend even one hour per week for the society, we can build a better world.

He had personally enquired about the activities of the foundation and also about us individually. When we explained in details of our activities, he was very very appreciative of our Big Boss, Sri SPB and said that the fans of Sri SPB are doing a great job by helping the downtrodden and less privileged in the society thru charity work.

Having understood the interest, we made a call to Sri SPB and requested to speak to Justice Rao while we had donated the money. Justice Rao was very happy to speak to Sri SPB and expressed his deep appreciation and thankfulness for the donation and also for guiding the fans to the charity activities. He also wished Sri SPB a long life and great health. We also expressed with sincere thanks to Sri SPB for immediately obliging our request to speak to Justice Rao. It really made a lot of difference to the programme since Justice Rao had expressed his great happiness, having spoken to Sri SPB.

The meeting with Justice Rao has been coordinated by Sri Mohan Rao, Executive Secretary and Treasurer of IRC Hyderabad.

Four of us had a wonderful experience being a part of this noble gesture of SPB Fans Charitable Foundation for which we are thankful to Sri SPB and the managing committee members.

I sincerely thank our friends Chaitanya, Usha and Vijay M who have readily agreed to participate in the event and made it a real success.

Thanks and regards

RAMAKRISHNA GUDA ( GRK )

Note: Coimbatore SPB Fans Thank to Mr.GRK,Mr.Chaitanya, Mrs.Usha and Mr.Vijay.M for great effort this noble cause through Our Dr.SPB Fans Charitable Foundation, Chennai.

Naan Dharmanda



Resembling one of the evergreen hits 'Asai Nooru Vagai', the song is magnetic and catchy right from the word go. Who else can render justice to the mass song but for S P Balasubramaniam. His open-throated voice sends an energetic feel straightaway in our hearts. A kuthu number which is catchy.

I thank to Mr.Gopala Krishnan for audio file, for lyrics Mr.Andy,thamizhsonglyrics.com and for pic and writeup indiaglitz.com

Dr.SPB FANS >> BANGALORE CHAPTER



SPBFANS CHARITABLE FOUNDATION >> BANGALORE CHAPTER MEMBERS

Hi All

The Institution chosen was 'Indira Gandhi International Academy', which houses about 260 children studying from Standard 1 to PUC. These children are the wards of SriLankan refugees housed at various camps in India.

After shortlisting the list of requirements put forth by the school, we had supplied 130 Trunks [for the children to store their belongings], 10 desks with draws for teachers from standards 1 to 10. A Fridge, and a couple of Basket Ball Boards with Hoops and net.

Malarvannan, Prabhanjan & Arvind along with Toufeeq played a major role in scouting, bargaining and procuring the items. I think everyone will agree when I say, Malarvannan stood up and took the overall responsibility, Prabhanjan and Arvind Pitched in with great enthusiasm and they pulled it off really well. Kudos!!

Well, the school children had made a fabulous decoration - they had put up 'thoranam' right from the gate all the way up to the school, and made colourful designs with flowers, and a welcome message for our Guruji with different flowers - all in all a spellbinding decoration. Those who saw it would vouch for the beauty of the arrangement.

Our Guruji arrived at 7:30 AM sharp, got out of the car at the gate when he saw children lined up on both sides to welcome him, garland him etc. He was cordially welcomed by the founder Mr. Mohan, Ms. Lakshmi Gopinath - Founder Bright Society & a volunteer as well, and Ms. Chitra Rajasekhar.

Guruji was directly taken to the 'dining room' which had doubled up as the events rooms, where they had made a dias of sorts. After the welcome note by Ms. Lakshmi, the talent events started. It was truly impressive seeing the children perform so well. As Malar has already explained about this, let me skip a repeat.

Mr. Mohan welcomed our Guruji and spoke about their longing for their homeland, and made an impaasionate plea to Guruji to lend his voice to unite all Srilankan Tamils, as his voice was the one they all had grown up listening to.

Our Guruji, praised the children for all the effort, and mentioned that he too grew up listening to Radio Ceylon, which played not just Tamil songs, but also Hindi & other language songs. He spoke how language which is just a means of communication between people and that it should not end up becoming a barrier between them. He praised the school, teachers and Volunteers for all the effort they have put, and also the fact that a school for Sirlankan Tamils was setup in Karnataka. He spoke in a way to encourage Children in their lives ambitions.

His impromptu rendition of the song which Little Deepa wrote put us all on an emotional high. Many of our fans were seen feeling thrilled, and getting goose bumps [self included].

All Fans on their volition had sponsored the breakfast for the day on personal account - which was bread omlette, egg etc. The school authorities had graciously accepted our request to arrange for 'veg' breakfast for our Guruji. They had arranged a breakfast for all our fans, not just Guruji. Idli, vada, Pongal and Coffee. We all sat along with the children and had breakfast.

Then Guruji had a tete-a-tete with the fans. Prabhanjan gave Guruji his marriage invite. Prasad Babu informed that it was his marriage anniv, and Guruji promptly gave him a boquet... and then he left the venue at about 9:45 AM.

The event, in my humble opinion was a resounding success in all aspects.

Vijay from Hyderabad with is friend, Abu Bucker from Pondy, Arvind Royan with his friend, Malarvannan, Prasad Babu, Satish and his two friends, Prabhanjan with his friend Suresh, Chitra [who is our fans group member and also a counsellor/ volunteer at the school] participated [Pl forgive me if I have missed out anyone]

I second what Prasad has said. I think it would be a very good gesture, and show people our fiundation is just not about donations but also that we take things we do seriously and whole heartedly in many way.

I am sure our man would indeed compose musc and sing those lyrics. For, everyone present knows that he said to Mr. Mohan 'I will compose music, sing and send this to you. You might use it in your 'unifying' attempts, or other song collections you put together. But, not many know that when he was just about to go back into the Airport at Departure Gate, he fumbled through all his pockets to find that one piece of paper, and as he found it he said :

"'Naan idhai paadi kodukkaren nu solli irukken sir. Adhaan yengayaavadhu misplace panniteno nu bhayandhuttean. Andha ponnu yezhudhinadhu. Record panni avangalukku anuppanum."
"I have promised to set tune to these lyrics by that girl; sing & send it to them. Thats why I was afraid if I had misplaced it. I have to record & send it to them" - Translation

Here is the lyrics in Tam: People who feel upto it to make a meaningful gramatically correct translation into other languages can attempt to do so please.

வானம் ஒன்றுதான்
பூமி ஒன்றுதான்
மனித ஜாதியும் ஒன்றுதான்

உண்மை ஒன்றுதான்
உள்ளம் ஒன்றுதான்
உலகத நீதியும் ஒன்றுதான்

உலகில் என்றுதான் போர்கள் ஓயுமோ
நன்மை காண்பதும் அன்றுதான்
எத்தனை அரசுகள் எத்தனை முரசுகள்
எத்தனை எத்தனை யுத்தங்கள்

கொஞ்சும் புறாக்கள் பீரங்கிக்குள் கூடுகட்டவே
இடம் வேண்டும்
போர்க்களை ஒழித்து பூமி படைப்போம்
பூபாளம் பாட வாருங்களே
போர்க்களம் எங்கும் பூச்செடி வெய்த்து
பூப்பரிப்போமே

Passion for music



Common interest: (from left) Dr Radha Krishnan, Dr C. D. Siby and Indian singer and actor S.P. Balasubramaniam.

Passion for music
By SHEELA CHANDRAN

Get this widget | Track details | eSnips Social DNA


Two ayurvedic physicians have produced a Tamil album featuring Malaysian and South Indian singers.

WE all have different tastes in music. Some of us love rock, while others, pop or jazz. Those who are more passionate about music will often take a step further, like Indian ayur­vedic physicians Dr Radha Krishnan and Dr C.D. Siby, who produced a Tamil album.

What sets the album apart from others is that it features the voices of talented Malaysian and Indian singers.

Titled Nesippaya (Will You Love Me), the eight-track album features South India’s S.P. Balasubramaniam, Unni Menon, Rajesh Vijay, Madhu Balakrishnan and homegrown singers such as Alinda Alphonse, Preetha Prasad and Logeswaran.

The album, which took a year to put together, is released by Sopaanam Arts. All the songs, except for one by Unni Menon, were recorded in Kuala Lumpur, when the Indian singers were in town.

Forty-year-old Siby, who enjoys writing Tamil and Malayalee poems, penned the lyrics while Krishnan, 36, handled the music direction and composition.

For Siby, the album is proof that dreams can come true.

“I have loved music since young and it has been my childhood dream to produce an album. Nesippaya is evidence of my interest and desire to work in the music industry.

“I met Krishnan a few years back and through conversation, I discovered he was a keyboardist with a band in Kerala (South India) for 15 years. We clicked instantly due to our interest in Tamil music,” said Siby during an interview recently.

Krishnan chipped in: “Many find it hard to believe the album was conceptualised by two traditional Indian medicine specialists. And what makes it more interesting is we managed to rope in prolific South Indian singers like S.P. Bala and Unni Menon alongside local singers.”

Krishnan explained it was by chance that S.P. Bala, Kollywood’s top Tamil singer who has recorded over 40,000 songs throughout his 40-year career, agreed to sing the song, Azhagae ... Azhagae (Beautiful ... Beautiful).

“Bala did not hesitate to record the song. In fact, we were amazed that he managed to record it within an hour,” said Krishnan, a trained flautist.

“Perhaps this wasn’t a feat for him, considering he is said to have recorded 19 and 16 songs in Tamil and Hindi, respectively in a day. It has been an honour working with him – he was down-to-earth and jovial.”

Other notable singers featured on the album include Rajesh Vijay, 33, who has been singing Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam songs for Indian movies and Prasad, 40, a local stage actor.

According to Siby, Nesippaya is a collection of love songs which focuses on the raga (melodic modes used in Indian classical music).

“The album suits music lovers who appreciate soothing tunes with a hint of classic melodies. Hopefully, the songs will help shape the growth and music awareness of the youth and foster deeper bonds between Indian and Malay­sian Tamil music,” said Kerala-born Siby, whose poems have been published widely in South Indian newspapers and magazines.

Not one to rest of their laurels, the passionate doctors are already planning their next project – releasing two devotional albums by year-end.

Nesippaya, selling at RM15 per CD, is available at Lotus Fivestar outlets nationwide.

Fans with a philanthropic touch

In This Series, We Meet Unusual Groups. This Week, Spend Time With SPB’s Fans

Kamini Mathai | TNN

He’s is one of the best playback singers in the country with more than 37,000 songs to his credit. He can add more life and style to a song than most singers in the industry. But those are not the only reasons why the SP Balasubramaniam fan club has grown in numbers over the years. It’s because of the man himself.

“We do not meet to just to discuss SPB’s songs and music. That is one part of it, but this club was formed because we want to imbibe SPB’s character in our lives, and absorb his good qualities,” says R Ashok, 33, an accountant with a software company, and member of the group. There are doctors, singers, software engineers, chemical engineers and more in this group.

Although the group was formed online in 2003, pretty soon the members started arranging for frequent meetings in the city. “We have evolved as a group. In the beginning, we just met and discussed his songs. But after a couple of years, we thought, why not learn from SPB. He is charitable and humble as a person. So we started going to orphanages and doing charitable work,” says Ashok.

Says S Seshadhri, 42, a software project manager and member of the group, “What drew me to this group is the fact that they do charitable work. It’s SPB’s character as much as his voice that makes me a fan. Even though he is so famous, he is the most down-to-earth celebrity I have seen, and does a lot of good work.”

On all “special” SPB days, like for instance his birthday, the group organises for members to meet and donate to a charity. Once a year, they also try to get the legendary singer to attend a meet. Then they have a meeting once in three months to discuss their charitable contributions. But apart from that, they meet on the second Saturday of every month between 3 pm and 6 pm at Natesan Park in T Nagar to talk about SPB, his songs, concerts, and events, and even share the technical details of a song or some little nugget of information they have just heard or read about him. “We also try and get tickets at a concession for members of the group,” says Ashok.

Those who want to join the group can contact Seshadhri at 9884924987

Visit by SPB to Aadarana :

The Organising Committee of the Event grouped themselves into two. One, comprising Ramakrishna Rao, Chaitanya, Seshadri, Venkat and others, was at the Aadarana to receive the Legend at 9.30am.

Aadarana is an orphanage for young children and it caters to their daily needs and educational requirements. It has two divisions, one housing around 40 boys and the other around 25 girls. It is situated at Malakpet, Hyderabad. It is headed by Mr.Madhava Rao.

SPB was immensely happy to see the small kids rendering songs and performing dances for him. He was very touched by the way the orphanage is run and praised the Management a lot.

On behalf of the Foundation, the Legend handed over a month’s Grocery requirement, Fans, Tube lights & Kitchen Utilities like Cookers/Grinder as needed by the Institution.

Chaitanya from Hyderabad had been instrumental in identifying this institution as a beneficiary. Seshadri & Venkat from Chennai had made a prior visit to Hyderabad a few weeks before the Meet to decide on selection and requirements

Registration of Attendees :

The other group of the Organising Committee comprising of Ashok, Madhumita & Dasaradhi was at the Venue with Ashok to give final touches to the arrangements and the other two to take care of the registration formalities.

The Registration of Members for the Foundation was really encouraging and it gives great pleasure to note that around 20 registered themselves as Members of the Foundation. The best part of it was that the sister-in-law of SPB and her husband along with one of the SPB’s Hyderabad friends also registered themselves as Members of the Foundation towards the end of the Event. This clearly showed that the message floated by the Foundation and the good encouraging words from the Legend about the Foundation had a great impact on those present at the event.

TEA TIME : 10.45 TO 11.00am

Invocation Song :

Satish Kumar – a college Student and an ardent fan of SPB and also a nephew of Foundation Committee Member Ashok, was given the honour of rendering the Invocation song.

He sang a devotional number from the Tamil film Vietnam Colony, which was originally sung by Bombay Jayashree.

It was a very soulful rendering on his part and it instantly captured the attention of SPB who at that time was in the process of autographing the photographs on the diaries (which were to be presented as compliments later). One could find the Legend visibly appreciating the rendering.

He complimented the singer abundantly and wished him well. Such was his magnanimity that towards the end of the show, he called Satish back on to the stage and presented him with a loving and affectionate embrace as a token of his appreciation.

He was quick to understand that Satish had had carnatic training and he impressed upon him that he should go on further and reach great heights.



Welcome Address :

Ramakrishna Rao from Hyderabad, the leader of the Hyderabad team which had coordinated for the event, gave the opening address. He welcomed all the participants and went on to brief about the events that took place during the visit of SPB to the Orphanage.

He also welcomed SPB who in spite of his busy schedule had spared time to be with his fans.

He also briefed about the efforts that had gone into the planning and activities that had gone into setting up this show at Hyderabad

Self Introduction of Attendees :

In this meet, all the participants were given the chance of introducing themselves to others.

Everyone introduced by mentioning their name, place of residence, profession with some of the excited fans stating that they were happy being there at the event.

Photograph Session with the Legend :

This session turned out to be the most sought after one as it brought the fans physically closer to the Legend and the moment was to be etched in print for a lifetime and also to serve as a memento.

This time, it was different, different in the sense that he got himself as close as possible to the fans by wrapping his huge hands around the shoulders of the Fans. This had never happened in the earlier meets. It served to be a special moment to cherish forever.

Fans were scampering around to get to him first. Some had their own cameras handed over to others to capture the delightful moment. Smiles were abounding on the faces. Some even took the liberty of getting photographed twice with the Great human being.

During this session the fans were also given a complimentary diary by SPB on behalf of the SPB Fans Charitable Foundation. This diary had a photograph pasted on its front inner cover with an autograph by the Legend. It also had a brief note about the Foundation and its activities

Video Presentation of the SPB Fans Charitable Foundation Activities
One of the Objectives of the Annual Meets is to create a forum wherein the Fans could meet up with the Legend and spend time with him.

The other important objective is to make known to all fans, the existence of the SPB Fans Charitable Foundation and its philanthropic activities, so that many more fans realize the great work that is being done in the name of the Legend’s fans. The purpose is to have more fans registering in the Foundation wherein they get the opportunity to serve the society. This is the ultimate wish of our SPB too, for he does not want the union of fans with him to be just limited to interactions. His wish is that this union should serve the society too.

Towards this, a video show of some of the Charity events organized by the Foundation was presented on the screen. We had the trustees of Chennapuri Annaadan Samajam , an orphanage in Chennai talking about their institution and the help that the SPB Fans Foundation had extended to them. We also had Dr.Ambika, Head of RASA, a school for Special Children, talking about the use of theatrics and songs in the development of physically & mentally challenged children and adults. She expressed her thanks to the Foundation for helping them out by providing some of their requirements

Surprise Celebrity Video Presentation :

It has now become a standard agenda in the Annual Meets since 2007 to have video clips presented on celebrities talking about the Legend and his attributes.

Our SPB had many a time expressed that these sessions made him feel embarrassed – hearing others talking so good about him when he felt that he was just an ordinary human being who had taken to singing only as a profession to earn his bread & butter.

This time, when the session was announced, he got up from the dais and walked over to the front row of the seating arrangements for watching the video show and in the process he quipped “What missiles do you have in store for me this time” “Let me face the first missile”

What followed next was indeed a surprise to most of the fans present as only a few had been involved in the making of the Celebrities videos.

First in line, was the video of Actor Venkatesh speaking on our Legend (It is understood that Chaitanya from Hyderabad was the man who got hold of the actor’s appointment and had made all arrangement for the video shoot). The excerpts from the video is as follows
Balu Garu has sung many lovely songs for me. One of most memorable one is the Priyathama na hrudhayama in the film Prema. He has sung it with so much passion that whenever I listen to it I am moved. He also played a small role in that film. I have made it a practice that at least one song in my film should be sung by him. Sometimes when it happened that he was very busy and found it difficult to fit in a song for my film in his schedule, I had pulled all strings to make him sing for me. Such is the impact he has on me. I also had the rare opportunity of having him in the role of my Father in the film Pavithra Bhandham and those were the times I will cherish forever. He is also a great human being. I understand that the SPB Fans Charitable Foundation formed in his name is doing good service to the society and I wish them all success in their endeavours

Next was Director K.Viswanath. His words went off like this
Baalu……Gaaru – I say so because I hved known him since his childhood as Baalu and have seen him grow leaps & bounds. He has grown to such a stature that I am forced to use …..Gaaru now eventhough he is always Baalu to me. He is called intimately by many others as Mani, Bala, SPB and so on. He is a very versatile artiste handling the wide repertoire of singing, dubbing, acting, anchoring & producing films. For Shankarabharanam, I wanted him to sing at least one song for the film and I am extremely happy that he sang all the songs. I wish him many more years of success. This SPB Charitable Trust formed in his name is doing lot of good activities and I wish them all success in their efforts

Singer and Small Screen Actor Mano followed next. His lines were
Known as Nagoor Babu, I am like the younger brother of Baalu Annayya. Our relationship dates back to more than 30 years when I used to be an assistant to Music Director Chakravarthy. I was the Pilot Singer during those times and used to teach Annayya the songs. I have grown listening to his songs a lot and I am blessed to be associated with him. Apart from being a great singer, he is also a very good human being. He never looked down on the junior artistes and treated all as his equals. One of the recent associations with him which I cherish was during our USA trip together in the year 2006. We were together for 21 days and we did 6 shows. We two were the male singers in the troupe and I can never forget how kind he was to me during that trip. During the trip, my wife also accompanied me and she found pleasure in preparing food and serving Annayya many times. This he remembered and thoughtfully mentioned it during one of the concerts by saying that I had taken care of him very well during the tour. That too, in front of a crowd numbering around 3000. I will never forget this kind gesture of his. I am very happy to note that this Foundation formed by his fans is doing noble activities serving the society. Recently they have donated a lakh of Rupees to a deaf & dumb school at Chengalpet, Chennai. This they have done in spite of their busy schedule. I think they are one big family with Annayya. I myself participate in such activities and I will try to help whenever possible. I wish them well in all their activities and my vandanam to Annayya.

The next celebrities were a pair and the siblings of our SPB – none other than Singer Shailaja and his other sister Kalyani
Shailaja :: Anna has been more of a father to us and we always looked up to him for guidance. He has taught me so much in singing. He was always a stickler for punctuality and he used to advise me that an artiste should practice a lot and should be well in time for a concert so that the public are not disappointed. Once I became a singer, we used to meet each other more on the outside than at home. Our meetings were generally at the recording studios both waiting to rush off to the next recording. During our childhood days, he used to take us to school and also bring us food. He was very naughty too. Once, we girls were playing card games at home well into the night. He came home at around 11.00pm and he too wanted to play with us. And he cheated a lot and when everything went against him he messed up the cards and quit the game. Another incident which is still fresh in memory was when he took us all to watch the English horror film EXORCIST. When we were back at home that night, we girls were all in the ground floor engaged in some chores. We were under the impression that Annayya had gone to the first floor to rest. Later, when we came out into the Hall, we found him standing at the bottom of the staircase. When we quizzed him what he was doing there, he said that he was waiting so that he could take us all upstairs lest we should be frightened to come up after having watched a horror movie. Such a brave man he was !!!!!! (Our SPB later jocularly said that his sisters had tarnished his image now before the fans)
Sister Kalyani spoke only a few words about her brother and it was more of a subset of the above

The final celebrity to speak on the video was none other than SPB’s close friend Maestro Ilayaraja. (Hats off to the members Seshadri & Ashok who had organized this interview)
IlayaRaja words about his close friend were
Our relationship dates to several years back. During those days, Baalu was looking for a harmonist to replace one of his regular players and I got introduced to him then through a common friend. I met him first at a school event and at that time he expressed his wish in forming an orchestra with me. During those times, we used to go on his scooter and visit Pappad Jamal in Chennai to get some gramophone records and tapes so that we could prepare the tunes for the songs that were to be played in our orchestra. Regarding his caliber, having been in the industry for 42 years is by itself a proof of his caliber. 42 years is not a small period in a singer’s life. He may have rendered most of my songs but he was equally used by many other music directors too. A singer is called upon to sing only if he is very good and what has happened is ample proof of his ability. Whatever events that have taken place between us on the personal side is between us and this is not a forum to share it. I wish him many more songs and awards in the years to come.

With that the celebrity Video show ended. Later SPB told us that the arrangements for the video graphing of IlayaRaja had gone on behind his back and that the culprit he understood later was his assistant Vittal who had arranged it all for the fans and that too without his knowledge. He was surprised that IlayaRaja had agreed to talk in the first place for he is known to be averse to giving interviews just like that. He applauded the perseverance of the Fans in getting it done and presenting the same to him



Question & Answers Session :

This session was also one of the most sought after one as this is when the Fans could interact one to one with the Legend.

Many of the fans requested him to sing a few lines of his songs and he delightfully heeded to their requests even though he commented that it was becoming more of a concert.

One of the lady fans asked him why was it that he always talked of the Tamil song “Aayiram Nilave Vaa” as having boosted his career when he had sung a few songs earlier to that. His answer was “Even though I had sung five songs in my first year 1969 in the Tamil Industry, it was this song that I had sung for MGR which made others recognize me. Imagine a 22 year old singing for a mega star like MGR. This meant that the singer had to be good. Moreover, MGR postponed the shooting of the song as I was not well and was down with severe fever on the day of the scheduled recording. It took me more than a month to recover and MGR had waited for me patiently to record the song with me. Till that day I was under the impression that the song would have been recorded with some other singer and the shooting would have gone ahead. This explains why this song forms a special part of my life”

Next, we had Murali from Chennai asking the Legend about the Audition song (a Rafi song) that he had sung when he was evaluated for Ek Duje Ke liye by Music Director Lakshmikanth Pyarelal. Murali also happens to be very ardent fan of Rafi and he has expressed this to our SPB quite a number of times in his emails to him and our SPB remembered it well and he mentioned that his fan used to send him email asking him to render at least one Rafi song in each concert. He also went ahead to announce that he was planning to do a full length Rafi concert in all the three states. This evoked visible happiness from those present.
He then went on to narrate about the Audition song. It seems that he had rendered a Rafi song composed by the Music Director himself and that our SPB had improvised on his own at some places. Lakshmikanth Pyarelal who was accompanying him on the Harmonium had stopped and had gazed at SPB curiously. He seems to have asked our SPB to stop and asked him if this was his song as it seemed to be different at some places. SPB had replied that it was his song and that he had improvised it. The MD had asked why and our Legend had charismatically replied that it was the way he sang. He ended it all by saying that the MD concluded with the words “After Rafi you are the only playback singer”. This drew a heavy round of applause from the gathering.

While on the subject of Rafi songs, he went on to talk about the strengths of Rafi. On the aspect of voice, he said that other singers like Kishore and Lata had better voice and range than Rafi’s. However when it came to exhibiting the emotions in a song Rafi was the Master. Tandem songs in particular wherein the same song was rendered by a female singer and male singer in solo, Rafi always excelled and scored over his counterpart. He went on to cite an example of “Ehe saan tere“ wherein he highlighted the uniqueness of Rafi in rendering the word “Mohabat..” towards the middle of the song. This he said came from the soul and the Rafi the master excelled at it. SPB confessed that it was this style of Rafi which he had imbibed and adopted in this singing. He finally said that anything emanating from the soul would have to be beautiful.

When Murali opined that, after Rafi, SPB was considered the next greatest singer, our SPB was immediate to in replying that “Place Rafi at the top and I don’t mind having anyone below him. Only a real great singer can feel so about another great singer. Hats off to the Legend.

One of the fans asked him about his unsung song series wherein earlier he had recorded his favourite songs of other singers. SPB told that it had happened as a one-off case and that he was not interested in doing it anymore as it may not be taken in the right perspective by many. However, he revealed that he was in the process of re-recording his own songs of his early days using the current digital technology and that he had completed about 15 songs and would be completing 50 songs shortly. He felt sad that the original singers like Susheela and Janaki were not able to accompany him in this re-recording exercise as they were not in their elements now. However he was going ahead with some of the good and new upcoming singers

One of the Fans from Karnataka asked him about his favourite song in Kannada. Our SPB replied that it was quite difficult to pick from such a vast list. He however came out with the song “Jothe iyile..” composed by IlayaRaja 30 years back and a few other songs as well and sang a few lines of these.

A young girl in the gathering wanted to sing a Tamil song with him and he obliged by accompanying her. What a Great Human being he is. Honouring the feelings of the fans.

He also made a mention that the song Priyathama Na Hrudhayama which Actor Venkatesh had talked about was also very close to his heart. He said that he felt heavy at the heart whenever he sang the song and said that the filming of the song was a very painful affair as it had lot of pathos embedded into it.

We had one young romantic fan express that SPB had become a integrated part of his life. SPB immediately had asked him if he was in love with a girl. The young man hesitated a bit which revealed that it was so. The boy went on to say that she was also an SPB fan and that they had come together due to SPB influence on them. Our SPB was quick to add humour by warning the youngster not to talk too much about him to her lest she should fall in love with him rather than the boy.

This evoked a hearty round of applause from the gathering. Our SPB was also quick to point out that two of his fans Venkat & Priya (from Chennai who were present at the event) had come together through this SPB Fans Group and had tied the knot recently. He wished that they would bless the Group with one more fan shortly. SPB was then asked to present a small gift to the newly married couple on behalf of the Foundation.

One of the fans was curious to know the exact number of songs that the Legend had sung. To that, our SPB emphatically replied “35000, I am quite sure about it, but some people exaggerate it to be 40,000 & 50,000 which is not true”. While on this subject, he praised the efforts of the Banglorean Fans R.G.Narayan and Rajkumar who were putting in tremendous efforts to compile his entire collection of songs. He mentioned that he had handed over a lot of his song books to them dating back to 1970s. He also went on to say that R.G.Narayan was so embedded in this exercise that he is traveling to remote parts of Tamilnadu and other states whenever he got information that someone possessed a collection of SPB’s songs. He said that he would be ever grateful to have such fans. At this point, RGN was humble enough to mention that there was another fan Abubkakar from Pondicherry who was indeed putting in more efforts than he, for the collection of songs. SPB also praised Rajkumar for helping him out with his laptop problems whenever he was in town. On a lighter vein, he warned Rajkumar not to put on weight lest he should become immobile like his secretary Vittal who had joined him as a lean person and who had become quite fat now.



With Best Compliments from Covai SPB Fans Club, Coimbatore.

We also had Covai Ravee from Coimbatore trying his best to cajole SPB to sing a song “Bhoomadevi pole..” from a Tamil movie “Panchcha kalyani” but our SPB laughed away this effort saying he wondered if such a film was ever made. One can excuse him for not remembering the song for such is the spread of his achievements. He also pointed out that he had found a remarkable improvement in the English of Covai Ravee. He recalled those days when Ravee could not utter even a few words in English. Nowadays he was happy to note that he had improved a lot.

Many more questions were asked and points discussed but it would be impossible to narrate all.

Finally a few words on what our SPB felt about the event. He was very happy with the quality of the gathering. Even though the number of attendees was not much, he felt that it was more like a family meet unlike the formal meet that actors have with a huge crowd gathering. He was very appreciative of the fact that many of the fans had come in from far & wide and that he was honoured to be showered with the love and affection of the fans. He was much pleased that his fans were involved in charity events and he said that he had watched the Foundation grow in stature year after year and had grown to a stage where it could donate a lakh of rupees to a needy institution. He crowned it all by saying “EVEN IN MY NEXT BIRTH, I WANT TO BE BORN AS SPB THE SINGER AND SWIM IN THE OCEAN OF YOUR LOVE & AFFECTION” What more can one ask for.

Note : The event was also graced by the noted Telugu singer, anchor and dubbing artiste Sunitha and by some close friends and relatives of his, namely his sister-in-law and her husband. Towards the end, SPB called on Sunitha to come on stage and render a song and the singer obliged shyly.





Press Meet :

Our SPB also spent some time answering questions from the local media persons who were also invited for the event in order to cover the event and publish it in their newspapers. Fans can watch out for clippings about the event in the newspapers

Buffet Lunch :

The event came to a pleasant end with a wonderful buffet lunch. Thanks to Ramakrishna Rao the coordinator of the event for taking care of the hotel arrangements and also to the management of the Hotel Taj Mahal.

The highlight of this session was that our beloved SPB also had lunch along with the fans. This is the first time that lunch was arranged in an Annual Meet. All the earlier meets had taken place either in the evenings or very early in the morning and hence a high tea had sufficed then.

One could see him enjoy his lunch with his friends and closer ones. Some of the Fans grouped around him while he was having lunch and were fortunate to hear him narrate the stories of his younger days when he along with his friends used to collect money somehow through mischievous means in order to visit the cinema halls or for some other secretive purposes. One could also hear him narrating his first association with his mentor and guide Shri.Kothandapani who had been instrumental in visualising a great future for him and guiding him towards it and had emphatically predicted that if disciplined he would rule the industry for more than 40 years. His prophecy had become a reality when there came a time that SPB was forced to refuse an offer for singing for his mentor himself because of his busy schedules. SPB wondered how he was able to do that to his mentor but it seems that Shri.Kothanadapani did not feel offended but rather quite pleased - for his prophecy that SPB would one day become a very busy singer had come true. And more true, he is now well into the fifth decade as predicted by his mentor. When the singer Sunita who was sitting nearby asked him if it was possible for a singer to have any goals in the present scenario when good songs were becoming a rarity, he replied that she had to identify a good music director and ensure that she gets chance to sing his compositions more. This could help her in reaching her goal. A valid bit of advice it was from the Legend.

With the Lunch session coming to an end, everyone disbursed quite content and happy in having spent a wonderful few hours with the Great Human Being

Conclusion:

By now the purpose of the Annual Meet and the role of the SPB Fans Charitable Foundation would have become quite clear to all the fans.

Those fans who had not registered themselves as members of the Foundation are requested to do so.
