Received a request mail a few days ago:
I need the free downloadable Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram mp3 of MS Amma.
From where I can download it? Please help.
I have noticed over the past couple of years, I have had too many requests for MS Amma’s commercially available recordings. The requests are flying thick & fast as many rasikas seem to want a “free download” of these recordings.
My point is this: Why would a so-called “genuine” fan or devotee of MS Amma engage in such piracy, promoting a parallel surruptitious market to exchange what is easily at any time available in the market?? Recordings like Vishnu Sahasranamam, Katrinile varum geetam, Kurai ondrum illai, Bhaja Govindam, the numerous slokas that Amma has sung, etc. etc. etc. are all very common recordings easily procurable even through online shopping channels.
So why would such a “genuine” rasika want to shirk paying royalty to the memory of such a great legend as MS Amma?? Why don’t people want to loosen their purses a bit to enjoy such divine music? I can understand if the request is for rare concert recordings, not commercially available, and difficult to come by for the common rasika.
I feel it is blatant & shameless to easily ask for available commercial recordings for “free download” which is an absolute disgrace to MS Amma’s rasika fraternity.
I request & urge every rasika to wake-up & ‘smell the coffee’ or else you will soon find yourself in a legal quagmire, being forced to shut down. Please avoid such unpleasantaries.
