TM Krishna’s Comments On MS Subbulakshmi Draw Sharp Criticism
Noted Carnatic music vocalist TM Krishna, speaking at a recent event, said that MS Subbulakshmi, who came from a Devadasi background in Madurai over time had dissociated herself from her roots to conform to the notions of an ideal Brahmin woman to find acceptance in society, something that is prominent in her songs of the 1960s and 70s.
According to the Deccan Chronicle, he said, “To embrace Brahminism she distanced herself from her brother and family in Madurai and that is the sad part.”
His comments drew sharp reactions from all quarters, including some of his peers:
