Sri Srnivasan sung a lot of songs that his father Sri Maharajapuram Santhanam used to sing and rendered them well. The tanam in ragam tanam pallavi was not top class stuff though.

The pallavi line in the ragam tAnam pallavi “srI saraswati vANi kalyANi, rAgapriyE namOstutE” was structured as follows (A = aksharam): (starts 1A after samam) srI (1A) sara (1.5A) swati (1.5A) vANi (1.5A) kalyA (1.5A – ends at half of the Avartanam) Ni (+ gap = 2A) rA (1A) ga (1.5A) priyE (1.5A) namO (1.5A) stutE (1.5A) = Total 16A = total akshara count of one Avartanam of Adi tALam (2 kalai)
