TNS was honoured in Colombo by the kamban kazagam in a never -seen
--before manner like a sovereign as he truly is of the music world.The
sesssions and speech by him was attended by thousands of rasikas with
TV facility outside the hall.He was welcomed like a maharaja with all the paraphernalia of banner , umbrella etc and was seated on the high throne under the royal umbrella with the other speakers below like a durbar scene.
His speech on guruthvam of Kamban was acclaimed as something wonderful as it showed that his

noted that the other speakers of the conference were poets, learned pundits and renowned speakers who were
as wonderstruck as the rasikas. It showed that vidvaan eva vijaanaathi vidvajjanapariSramam, provided they are
