Awards and titles are indeed memorable and moments of pride for any artiste. Laurels are always such important means of enthusing one to perform better each time.

I consider myself to be indeed blessed to have received my very first title of Sahithyapriya from none other than the Sangeetha Pithamaha, Semmangudi Sri.Srinivasa Iyer. This was instituted by Jan Kalyan and given by Kalavardhani.

I was one of the proud recipients of the title Yuva Kala Bharathi instituted by Bharat Kalachar, in December 2000.

To have been the recipient of the prestigious title of Isai Peroli in December 2003 instituted by Karthik Fine Arts, Chennai, has always been a memorable moment for me.
