Sangeetha Sujith always wanted a musical successor in her family and that’s why she made sure her daughter learn music from a very young age. Her daughter, Aparna who is a BCom student at Stella Maris College, Chennai always considered her mother as her first guru. “My mother loved to hear me sing. Recently I had the opportunity to sing a few songs. I plan to follow in my mother’s footsteps,” says Apana.

Sangeetha was born into a family with a musical and artistic lineage. Her father VG Sachith first send her to learn music after watching her listen keenly to music on the radio. Aparna says she started liking music after hearing her mother sing. Aparna came to Thiruvananthapuram from Chennai a few days back after realizing that Sangeetha was in poor health.


When the govt and music world forgot her

No one from the film-cultural world came to offer any condolenses. There was no representation from the state govt cultural ministry as well. A few musicians and singers offered their condolences over the phone. A few people from the Tamil film industry also got in touch with us. The cremation was in the presence of family and relatives.
