“Dear Sri Prasad..Blessings..The noble couple of M.S.Subbulakshmi and Sadasivam are in a serious financial crisis and need some quick help.. Please plan something for them immediately and help them come out of this crisis at the earliest..”..
Sometime in the beginning of 1979,PVRK Prasad,the Executive Officer Of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (T T D) board received two such urgent telegram messages from His Holiness the Paramacharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati and from His Holiness Bhagwan Sri Satya Sai Baba Of Puttaparthi.
Messages like that from holy giants can unnerve any mammoth personality and the poor PVRK Prasad was no exception.. However,what shocked Prasad more at that moment was not the status of the senders but the content of their message.
“What happened to music queen M.S.Subbulakshmi so suddenly and why did she land in such a situation that demanded the intervention of divine personalities..?? ”
Why Do The Divine Personalities Want PVRK Prasad To Help..??
The great music queen M.S.Subbulakshmi has millions of fans all over the world and they will not keep quite if they come to know that their favorite singer is going through such an acute financial crisis..
However,the music queen will not accept any unsolicited favor from anyone and it’s now for the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (T T D) board to plan something for her immediately and see that she’s also adequately compensated for that…T T D has done that successfully earlier and something similar should be done now and that’s also what the holy giants are expecting Prasad to do.
However again,it’s not as simple as it sounds and there’s no better person than PVRK Prasad to understand that..
But What Happened To M.S.Subbulakshmi And Sadasivam
Through whatever sources available to him,the T T D Executive Officer PVRK Prasad conducted an immediate inquiry in Madras,where the noble couple lives,and found out that…
“M.S.Subbulakshmi and Sadasivam have sold off their Kalki estate in Madras and moved into a small rented house in Valluvar Kottam,a desolate place those days,in the suburbs of old Madras”..“Sadasivam was running a newspaper,by name Kalki, in Madras and that unfortunately ran into huge losses forcing the noble couple to resort to such an extreme measure of selling off their huge asset to repay their loans ..”..
This unpleasant information really saddened P V R K Prasad,a great fan of music queen M.S.Subbulakshmi..
Wiping off his tears,he stood right in front of the large Lord Sri Venkateswara portrait that’s there in front of him,in his office,and made a humble submission.
”Swamy,so far in her life,singing your bhajans all over the world this great lady has served you with utmost devotion..And organizing everything for her on time Sadasivam was always there,with her,at every point of time in her singing career.. ”
“She gave concerts all over the world and although she could have demanded any amount of money she wanted,from the concert organizers,she was always happy with whatever was offered to her..She has donated almost all her earnings from those concerts to charity and now at this stage of her life is this what you are offering her Swamy..??..Don’t you think this is unfair…??..”
“Swamy,they are also couple of high self esteem and do not seek favors from anyone not even from YOU..Then how do you expect them to lead a normal life hereafter..??..Am really feeling sorry for them now and don’t know what to do…Swamy Sri Venkateswara,it is for You now to help me in doing something for her immediately..”
Without wasting any more time PVRK Prasad called for an emergency meeting of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam board and sought measures from it’s experts to provide whatsoever relief possible to M.S. Subbulakshmi immediately.
But, almost all in one voice, all the members of the TTD board said “Sir,we are very sorry to hear about the pathetic state of Smt.M.S.Subbulakshmi and Sri.Sadasivam..”..”However sir,it is also our duty to remind you that Smt.Subbulakshmi is already the Asthana Vidwan of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam board and is as such enjoying some honorarium and privileges from us..”
“..Although we are all very eager to help her out in this hour of crisis,we are afraid sir,there’s nothing much we can offer her at this moment…T T D is always answerable to the ministry of endowments and is not empowered to take certain decisions on its own..”
A tricky situation for the government run body to offer some quick relief to a great music queen called M.S.Subbulakshmi,who at that moment,deserves a better and more appropriate attention..
But quite miraculously and almost immediately that appropriate
Attention Came From None Other Than The Holy Lord Sri Venkateswara Himself
