Let us hear what Swami Vivekananda had to say about the relation between deep sounds
produced by drums like Mridangam and personality development of Youth of our country—
- "Are not drums made in the country? Make the boys hear the deep-toned sound of these instruments."
- "The Damaru (An hour-glass-shaped drum, held in Shiva's hand.) and horn have to be sounded, drums are to be beaten so as to raise the deep and martial notes, and with "Mahavira, Mahavira" on your lips and shouting "Hara, Hara, Vyom, Vyom" , the quarters are to be reverberated."
- "...the people are to be accustomed to hear the Dhrupad music. Through the thunder-roll of the dignified Vedic hymns, life is to be brought back into the country. In everything the austere spirit of heroic manhood is to be revived. In following such an ideal lies the good of the people and the country."
Keeping the above views in mind our centre started Mridangam Course. This course is conducted by Mridangam Expert "Vadyavisharada" Thiru Raamshankar Babu G.
