Semmangudi whose Kharaharapriya and its derivatives gave immense pleasure to the music lovers. He is with T.N. Krishnan and Palani Subramania Pillai who revitalised the Pudukkotta ‘bhaani, incorporating in it the aspects of Tabla playing. He had played ghanjira with Mani Iyer, sitting face to face, their hierarchy being of equal stature.

IT IS SAID that Palani Subramania Pillai had a craze for the latest cars which he drove about himself. When one of his admirers asked him how he felt sitting face to face, playing Ganjira, with Palghat Mani Iyer, he quipped that Mani Iyer had the uncanny gift of drawing half the power of his opponent, like Bali of Ramayana.
