We lost a person who respect culture and Classical music; Padmabhushan Shri. SP Balasubramaniam left to perform at heaven

Shri. SP Balasubramaniam

As we know, unfortunately, Padmabhushan Shri. S P Balasubramaniam passed away this afternoon (well, he may have departed yesterday but I believe announcement was delayed to prepare all of us to accept the shocking news). He was admitted to MGM Health Care when he was tested COVID positive. Although he came out of COVID earlier this month, he has developed other issues and could not survive.

His life is certainly an inspiration not just because he was a great singer, music director, film producer etc., but he was someone who succeeded in his interest of music in spite he did not have a great voice from the beginnning. But through his dedication and practice, he has achieved what he is in our hearts.

I was listening to his songs right from my childhood – through radio those days and then through audio casettes, compact disks, stored on my computer and now digitally through YouTube and other channels.

Shri. SPB has encouraged lakhs of people to learn classical music through flagship program “Paaduta Teeyaga”. He used to give participants real appreciation and correct them as needed. He always used to respect everyone. What I have learnt fom him is not to underestimate or talk negative about anyone. He has a lot of respect towards our culture and classical music.

I had an opportunity to see him closely when my brother and I went to watch Paaduta Teeyaga Program live at Hyderabad. It’s gratifying to have a memory that we were able to join his effort to support philanthropic initiative he took during COVID lockdown time. He used to acknowledge even when someone contributes little amount.

Shri. SPB Sir, you will always remain in our hearts. May your soul be blessed. Shri. Charan SP, my deep sense of gratitude to you for sharing regular updates about Shri.SPB’s health through your facebook page. Our deep condolences to you all and all of us who take him as inspiration.
