chembai vaidhyanatha iyer
Chembai was an institution... At that time I played many concerts with the greatChembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar as also Palghat Mani Iyer. Chembai told me: "I have sung with five generations of musicians, I know your talent. You will not make a single paise from medicine.
In the mastery of the violin you will be a chakravarthy (emperor)".

Anna (Chembai) ; Iyengarval (Ariyakudi) are like my two eyes
