Meera Bhai's Mere to Giridhar Gopal Sung by Madurai Shanmukhavadivu Subbulakshmi

M. S. Subbulakshmi, we learn "was the first musician ever to be awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honor," and "the first Indian musician to receive the Ramon Magsaysay award, Asia's highest civilian award, in 1974 with the citation reading 'Exacting purists acknowledge Srimati M. S. Subbulakshmi as the leading exponent of classical and semi-classical songs in the Karnataka tradition of South India.'"
