Lakshmi Devnath is a well-known researcher and writer in the field of Carnatic music. Her articles and features numbering close to 200 have featured in leading publications like The Hindu and Sruti – India’s Premier Magazine for the Performing Arts. Her passion is to familiarise the young with India’s glorious heritage through innovative stories. An earlier effort of hers in this direction, Poorva – magic Miracles and the Mystical Twelve, that narrates the stories of the Azhvars and released in 2007 was a runaway success. The projects that she is currently involved in include Poorva in the Vedic Age; Sargam – a fascinating journey into the world of Carnatic music and this pictorial biographies series. Her other books include – A Class Apart, the biography of the educationist Dr (Mrs) Y.G. Parthasarathy and Lotus – a monograph written for daneuse Anita Ratnam.
