If Carnatic music is still head all over the world and makes an emphatic and grand statement of survival each year during the annual December season, it is because of a few great artistes who bore the art form aloft amidst crisis and threats. A colourful lot, much has been written about their lives and their lifestyles, which must have had a significant bearing on their art. All of them were powerful personalities in their own right.
