Nearly two weeks after Prof. Mysore V. Ramarahtnam left his mortal remains on November 15, 2008, Sangeetha Kalanidhi R. K. Srikantan spoke briefly, expressing his deep sadness over the loss of his friend and fellow musician for more than 60 years. He reminisced in a short speech, the music of Prof. Ramarathnam, his vidwat and talked about Ramarathnam's concert with all time legends such as Palghat Mani Iyer, and how the concert and Prof. Ramarathnam's rendering are still echoeing in his ears even today. Talking about Prof. Ramarathnam's style of singing Shri Srikantan said "Ramarathnam's rendetion of ragas was short and sweet, full of bhava, lakshya and lakshana. His rendering of swara's & neravals and the bhava laden sangathis, demonstrated Ramarathnam's dedication, discipline, and impact of his association with giants such Ariyakudi Ramanuja Iyengar, Musuri Subramanya Iyer, Semmangudi Srnivasa Iyer, and so on. Ramarathnam had a wealth of krithis that he learned by dedication and association with the stalwarts, for a number of years. He stressed that Prof. Ramarathnam's loss is truly irreplacable, and that his friend had dedicated his entire life to the achievement of purity and clasicism, that is simply hard to find these days." Srikantan also taled about Prof. Ramarathnam's contribution to music, and disemination of his knowledge of music by means over 15 books related to lakshya and lakshana aspects of music. In the end Shri Srikantan expressed deep sorrow over the loss of his all time friend and fellow vidwan, and prayed for the professors soul to rest in piece.
