T. J. S. George is a journalist who began his career at the Free Press Journal in 1950 and was the founding editor of Asia week. He established himself as a serious political author and biographer with a series of major books, including Lee Kuan Yew?s Singapore, the Life and Times of Nargis and Krishna Menon: A Biography. He is editorial adviser to the New Indian Express and lives in Bangalore with his wife, Ammu.

M. S. Subbulakshmi (1916-2004), who was popularly known as MS, was one of India?s greatest classical musicians. Born into a humble devadasi home, her talent and dedication to her art made her one of India?s most critically acclaimed classical singers. She was the first Indian musician to receive the Bharat Ratna, the country?s highest civilian honour, in addition to numerous other awards. Jawaharlal Nehru called her ?a Queen of Music? and Sarojini Naidu dubbed her ?The Nightingale of India?. Her fellow musicians were no less generous in their praise. Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan said she was Suswaralakshmi (the Goddess of the Perfect Note) while Kishori Amonkar said she was Aathuvansur or music?s ?Eighth Note? (there are only seven notes that are basic to all musical forms). MS?s genius had principally to do with her exquisite voice, her extraordinary range and her unequalled command of all the material she worked with, whether it was Carnatic music, Hindustani music or devotional music such as bhajans.
