Fortunate was I to watch the repeat
telecast of the programme "Paataku pattabishekam", a
befitting honour to Padmabushan Smt P Susheela.
The programme was for about 40 minutes and madam Smt P Susheela
spoke about her musical journey, awards, memoirs etc.

rare songs in such a short notice.

Photographs of Master Venu, Chakravarthi, Nagireddy, Chakrapani

in her speech.
She recalled the calibre of Smt Savithri for whom she had rendered
innnumerable immortal songs.
To conclude she thanked all who had recommended her for this
award and specially Sri Subbirami Reddy.
