Mothers and Daughters-1

MS Subbulakshmi (MS) was one of India’s most famous and celebrated singers. Her mother, Shanmugavadivu (note that the S in MS is her mother’s name) was a famous veena player. Pic 1 is of her mother, Pic 2 of MS playing her mother’sveena in 1945.

MS really seemed to love puff sleeve blouses, a number of her early photographs have her wearing the style.
