    Woke up to the news about the sad demise of Vidwan Shri T.V. Sankaranarayanan, considered torch- bearer of the Madurai Mani Iyer style of singing and technique, who died on Friday 2 September 2022 evening. He was 77 and is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter. Sanakaranarayanan was the nephew of Vidwan Madurai Shri Mani Iyer and son of Vidwan Shri T.S. Vembu Iyer, who accompanied Mani Iyer on stage on stage till his last days.

    Sankaranarayanan was born in Mayiladuthurai in 1945 after Madurai Mani Iyer had shifted his base there due to the evacuation in Chennai during the Second World War. The family returned to Chennai in the 1950s and Sankaranarayanan studied law, though he opted for a full-time career in music.

    He started accompanying Mani Iyer from the age of 9 and his arangetram was held in Thanneerthurai Anjaneya temple in Mylapore.

    He won the Sangita Kalanidhi award of the Music Academy in 2003. In the same year, the Centre conferred on him Padma Bhushan.
