|Let the memory of Raghuraj be with us forever|
"May his rememberance bring more and more strength to his family!"
"May His family become strong and strong as the days goes day by day. Still feeling that he is still there!"
"Like to join with his family members remembering him on his Birthday! He still lives in their Hearts as long as it Beats!"
"Oh! My God! This is a shock to me! Even yesterday I was thinking about him, in those days he used to take "karpanaikku meni thanthu-kaal salangai pottu viten" TMS song from "Paatum Bharathamum", Tamil Movie! I have personally seen him, heard him singing and met him also. During our college days, my friend Rajan's friends, and my friend Charlie's friend (who was plaing Accordin and died in an Accident ) Dhilip, Chella, Prabhu were playing violin and he used to sing TMS voice. I have enjoyed his singing in many orchestra. I am sure in late 1970's, his sister had marriage in Sri Rangam, my friend went there and was saying Ilayarajah and his violin friends were there, attending marriage, and Illayarajah were all discussing some tunes..I heard he is a great Guitar player, but was most suited for Orchestra in 70's and 80's for TMS voice. I cannot withstand this loss. He started his own orchestra. My God today just was watching youtube videos of Illayarajah, it took to my old days, so googled about kamesh-rajamani orchestra, and had to read this shocking news! I share this grief very much. I want to know about well being of Lious Paul, Raghumayee, Rukmani, V.Chandren, Surender, Sundar, Shoba, Krishnamoorthy, Devanathan who used to play Accordin in Kamesh-Rajamani, Anand, Shivaraj whom all I used to admire."
"Raghuraj helped me with so many suggestions when I approached him in August 1989 before I started my troupe Ragapravaham when I was a total stranger to him. He was a pucca gentleman. God has been very cruel that he snatched him away from us so soon."
"To a father to whom I owe my life."
"I miss my beloved friend who was with me nearly 40 years, since 1970,
in Kamesh-Rajamani's troupe."
Have a suggestion for us?
