Subhadra Sriram says :
The entire programme is superbly organised.
It started with the auspicious Nadaswaram music expressing our highly enthusiastic and overwhelming feeling of happiness on the positive thought of imagining ourselves as if we had achieved Independence.
Next I could not find adequate words in the dictionary to join the beads of words of appreciation to garland the comphere Anuradha Kannan for her extra ordinary dexture and brilliance in introducing each programme and on the artist through her unparalleled way of expression using nectar like words.
She proved her versatile knowledge in giving so many informations on the origin of our flag,our latest laurels in the Olympic Games and highly impressive and latent meanings of the songs, greatness of the song writers and speciality of the singers, etc., etc..
Songs selection was wonderfully well to suit our
sacred and highly cheerful patriotic mood.
Each singer filled our ears and hearts with honey through their amazing performances.
We are proud to be Indians. Proud to live in the land where Mahans like Bharathiyar and Thiruvalluvar lived
