Birthdays & Anniversaries
Sruti is an English language monthly magazine on the performing arts -- Indian music, dance, and theatre -- published from Chennai, India.
Sruti was founded in 1983 by Dr. N. Pattabhi Raman, who had returned to India from a career abroad, bringing with him a focus and skill for English writing and editing, as well as willingness to engage in sincere criticism and controversy. The magazine initially had financial difficulties, with Pattabhi Raman desiring to gain subscribers vice take out loans, and minimal support from corporations. The journal floundered somewhat following Pattabhi Raman's death in 2002, but as of 2003 it continued forward under staffers who rose to take over its leadership. The magazine was acquired by the Sanmar Group in 2006, and has grown from strength to strength.
Journalist S. Muthiah in 2011 referred to the publication as the country's leading journal on Indian Classical music and dance.
