Legendary Carnatic singer Parassala B Ponnammal breathed her last at her residence in Thiruvananthapuram on June 22 at the age of 96. In 2006, she scripted history by singing at the famed Navaratri Mandapam of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram. She was the first woman in the temple’s 300-year tradition to do so. We pay tribute to this Carnatic music legend.
