Veenai Dhanammaal

Veena Dhanammal is the most prominent Veena player of 20th century and one of the most influential Carnatic musicians ever. Dhanammal was born into a musical family. Her grand mother Kamakshiamma was a famous vocalist and dancer. Her mother Sundaramma was trained by Subbaraya Sastri, son of Shyama Shastry. She was trained by a number of musicians, apart from her mother -Sathanur Panchanada Ayyar, Alasingarayya, Balakrishnayya, Dharmapuri Subbaraya Ayyar, Baldas Naidu of Wallajahpet and Saidapet Tirumalachariar. Her brother Narayanaswami was a famous violinist.

Dhanammal was an expert in Veena, but was equally good in vocal music. She used to frequently sing while playing on the veena. In time she developed an identifiable style of her own, what is now called Veena Dhanammal Bani. Raaga Bhaava was the main focus of her style. Gamaka-s were used where needed and she had a fine delicate touch. She never used Tanpura or Mridangam accompaniment as she believed Veena was a complete instrument. Musicians and rasika-s would flock to her house to hear her Friday concerts.

How To Help Employees Deal With Change
1. Explain WHY the change is required/necessary.
2. Describe the expected benefits to be gained (“What’s in it for us”).
3. Provide training and resources necessary to implement the change.
4. Solicit/address any employee questions and concerns.
5. Be patient – expect mistakes as new habits are formed.
And most importantly …
6. Demonstrate support and commitment to the change, yourself.
