Acquainted with music since one and half decades the simpleton music director V Manohar gets another feather in his cap. The Raga he created for O Nanna Chetana….song for ‘Rasarisihi Kuvempu has given him appreciation from the classical Vidwan R.K.Padmanabh without asking.
One of the top classical vocal musician RK Padmanabh after singing the song composed by V Manohar went home and later called up after referring the music books to say V Manohar has created new ragas from his ‘Kalpana Swara Shakthi’. The raga of V Manohar the noted singer RK Padmanabha calls it as ‘Manohara Raga’, as already there is Manohari Raga in the classical music books. Manohar composed the song O Nanna Chetana….in Revathi Raga but the new additions he made along with Revathi Raga is what impressed the giant vocalist.
The Vidwan RKP did not stop at it. He requested music director V Manohar to utilize the raga he has created to use in his classical vocals.
When CR Simha who plays the aged Kuvempu in ‘Rasarishi’ narrated the incident music director V Manohar was sitting next to Rashtrakavi Dr GS Shivarurappa at GM Rejoyz auditorium.
