National Conference on Swami Vivekananda held at Mangalore

Two days national level conference on “Celebration of 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda” began on Friday July 11 at Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara College of Business Management here.
Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji, secretary of Ramakrishna Mission, Vadodara inaugurated the conference.
“We have got the permission to celebrate Swami Vivekananda’s 150th birth anniversary for four years. So many institutions started celebrating it from 2010. But when I look here, it looks like, the celebration will continue for another year. There are 178 branches of Ramakrishna Matt and still many more branches are coming up. This is all because of Swami Vivekananda’s power,” said Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji in his inaugural speech .
“Swami Vivekananda was a true leader. He has done his work for the future generation and to understand his work, we will take more than 1500 years” he added.
Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji gave a solution to kill the laziness of everyone with humor.
“If you want success in your life, you should kill the laziness which is in you. To kill the laziness you need an AK 47 rifle. AK 47 is nothing but doing exercise in the morning,” he said.
He also spoke about how to gain success in life. He said, “If you want long term success, you should work for a long term. For this you need a long term personality development.”
“There are five types of long term personality development. One, good physical personality, second, intellectual personality development, third, mental development of personality, fourth, spiritual development and last one is moral development,” he added.
” If you want success in any field, you should have the power of concentration of mind. Many institutions provide excellent education, but they do not provide how the education on a person’s character, how to behave in the society. At present there are human monsters in the society. To find a good person, we have to use the microscope,” he said.
Guest of honour Venkatesh Baliga, editor of Kodial Kkabar, Mangalore and alumni of SDMCBM delivered the keynote address on real scope of success comes from spiritual happiness.
Chairman of the organizing committee Aruna P Kamath honoured Swami Nikhileshwaranandaji and received the blessings from the Swamiji. Convener Shaini Naveen welcomed the guests.
Swami Jitakamananda, secretary of Ramakrishna mission, Mangalore, Dr Padmanabha Marathe and others were present at the occasion.

Samay Sangeet Yatra – Panchamada Inchara – Music Fest : A Report

On January 14th Makara Sankranti festival began with Udayalapa of Dattatreya Velankar, Bangalore, disciple of Pt. Vinayak Toravi. He recited morning ragas Bilaskhani Todi, Bibhas and Alaiyya Bilawal. He was accompanied on Harmonium by Balnad Sriram Bhat, Mysore and on Tabla by Tonse Ranga Pai, Manipal.

Pt. Dhananjay Daitankar’s, disciple of Pt. Shivakumar Sharma, Shata-tantri or Santoor concert followed in the Samay Sangeeta Yatra. His mastery over Santoor was well established in his performance of rag Parameshwari, a Carnatic rag which resembles rag Ahir Bhairav and rag Bageshree. He was ably accompanied on Tabla by Sameer Puntambekar, Pune.

Noonday performance was given by Pt. Indudhar Nirodi, encyclopedia of music and senior artist. He is now involved in the mega project of recording all Vishnunarayan Bhatkhande’s works. Nuances of music were explored and introduced to the audience and students of music by him. He explained how Rag Bilawal with a light touch of rag Yaman creates a new rag Yamani Bilawal. Then sang the bandish in vilambit Tilwada taal and ‘Piya bin Kaise’ in dhrit Teen taal. Then Bandish ‘Pariye Payan’ was rendered in rag Jonpuri and ‘Aj sunao’ in rag Devgandhar. Guruprasad Hegde Giligundi, Sirsi on Harmonium and Gurumurty Vaidya on Tabla joined him.

All the music lovers were served with festival lunch to savour along with the the music for the soul.

Afternoon concert was given by Ravikiran Manipal, disciple of Pt. Madhav Bhat and Pt. Narayan Pandit. He selected Gandhar vaadi ragas Bhimpalas and Multani for Samay Sangeet Yaatra for his music presentation. Guruprasad Hegde on Harmonium and Shashikiran Manipal on Harmonium joined their hands.

Sarangi-Sitar jugalbandi by Ustad Fayaz Khan and Ustad Rafiq Khan in the late afternoon was the star performance. They showed beautifully how jugalbandi expounds nuances and possibilities of a rag using different instruments. Being a singer Ustad Fayaz Khan also sang the Bandish ‘Kal nahi aye’. They were accompanied deftly in tabla by tabla maestro Gurumuty Vaidya.

Two day music fest met its summit in the performance of Dr. Ashwini Bhide Deshpande of Jaipur-Atrauli gharana. Eloquent rendition of Sandhiprakashak rag Shree was followed by rag Durga, Janasammohini. Kabir bhajan in Bharavi marked the grand end to the fest. Vyasamurty Katti on Harmonium and Gurumurty Vaidya on Tabla accompanied her.

On this occasion Narendra Nayak, Vice President, Sangeeta Bharati and Harmonium artist was honoured. Soulful music of the fest Panchamada Inchara-Viveka Smriti created a musical aura in the pious atmosphere of the Math. Swami Vivekananda himself was a great musician and musicologist, thus the Concluding Ceremony of 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda was made more meaningful.

Dasavani – Panchamada Inchara – Music Fest : A Report

On the occasion of concluding ceremony of 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda “Panchamada Inchara – Viveka Smriti” – A two day Music Fest was organised by Ramakrishna Matha, Mangalore and Chirantana Charitable Trust, Surtkal jointly.

Capt. Ganesh Karnik, MLC inaugurated the Music Fest on 13-1-2014 Monday evening. Swami Jitakamanandaji, President, Ramakrishna Math, Mangalore and Sri Abraham Kurian, DGM, Corporation Bank were present on the occasion.

USTAD FAYAZ KHAN,a  well known Sarangi player and singer rendered his performance on the evening of the first day of the Fest. He confessed, “I don’t sing just Dasavani. I am a Hindustani Classical singer. Hence the songs will carry a tinge of classical touch. More over I don’t  sing the compositions of the famous singers.” He started his bhajan singing with ‘Modalondipe Ninage Gananatha’. Without delving much into the intricacies of Alaap and giving just a cherishing flavour of classical music he sang his own compositions ‘Ellinda Bande, Mundetta Payana’ written by Kanakadasa with a touching effect on the audience. ‘Enta Saviyo Ninna Kolalu’, ‘Na Ninna Dhyanadoliralu’ and other compositions written by Purandaradasa also won the applause of the audience. Sri Gurumurthy Vaidya on Tabla, Sri Shivakumar Mahant on Harmonium, Sri Nagaraj Shet on Taala and Sri Satish Kamath on Tanpura accompanied the artist ably.
