No news about Tamil music director MS Viswanathan’ death in the NDTV App so far. The Times Now app has just put in a pathetic report on his passing.
Not a surprise as India has always been Hindi-a, with Tamil Nadu having been the only South Indian State to have realised this 50 years ago!That cannot deny MSV (87) his due place in Indian cinema. His music will endure the test of time and fanatical Hindia.
He excelled even as an actor in his later years in father roles with a tinge of comedy, something he carried on doing till almost his very end!
All I can say now is: “Thank you for the music for giving it to me” – with due acknowledgement to Abba. May his soul rest in peace!
