In the Hindu Frontline Article titled The MS phenomenon, Gowri Ramnarayan writes  “The Alathur brothers, known to be masters of laya and pallavi exposition, were to call on M.S. the next day and offer their congratulations. “We have no words to describe the beauty and balance of your presentation. What anchored every part firmly to a finished whole was the accent on the raga and the bhava you brought to it. This is what makes your music so enchanting, so durable. This is what the great Dakshinamurti Pillai found to be special in your singing years ago.”
