DEBUT

Smt D K Pattammal’s first stage appearance, first public singing, first honor, first press review and first gramophone record – all of these happened to be and date back to one program – just one program and her maiden program! But she was not SangItha kalAnidhi, GAna saraswathi Smt D K Pattammal at the time; she was just Pattammal, the little daughter of Shri Krishnaswamy DhIkshitar who was only around 10 years of age. It was her School day drama and this little child played SAvithri in the ‘SatyavAn Savithri’ drama.
