COLUMBIA CHILD

Thus DKP’s very first public singing also happened to be her first stage appearance which fetched her gold medal that happened to be her first honor too. Her very first program itself was a grand success that attracted press coverage and a greatly appreciative review and the attention of the much coveted gramophone company of that time. And no driving away was going to dissuade Colombia from releasing a gramophone record of DKP. They did come back shortly and this time they succeeded! She would recall with pride that for several years she was called "Columbia Child Artist" since she cut several popular discs for them. Her first ever 78 rpm record was a virutham "KallA IrumbA" in the rAgam thOdi.
