From The Jacket

Sitting on stage, diamonds glittering on her nose and ears, jasmines in her hair - her grace and beauty enchanted. Then when M. S. Subbulakshmi began to sing, her electrifying performance dazzled audiences around the world.

M. S. Subbulakshmi's music is replete with the feeling of bhakti, a complete surrender to the devotion of god. Her donations to charity are legendary. For many, she is a saint- a modern Meerabai.

MS delighted Gandhiji by singing his favourite bhajans. She was invited to sing at the UN General Assembly and won the prestigious Ramon Magsaysay Award. This is the inspiring story of one of India's greatest singers, whose life and music remain the purest form of worship.
