The mayor along with other dignitaries felicitated music director Rajan. Lyricist of ‘Sri Kadri Manjunatha Geethamrutha’ Dr Doddarange Gowda, V Manohar, Smitha Karthik, and Shakuntala Kini were also honoured.

Addressing the gathering, mayor Kavitha Sanil said, "I am blessed to felicitate veteran music director Rajan. I also congratulate Lakshmish Bhandary for presenting and producing a devotional music album. Movies are forgotten by many, but not the songs. When it comes to development, Lakshmish Bhandary always contributes in one or the other way. He is such a great inspiration for his contribution to the society.”

Music director Rajan said, "Lakshmish Bhandary had approached me to compose music for devotional songs dedicated to Sri Kadri Manjunatheswara Swamy. The songs have come out well. I urge everyone to listen and support us to make it a success.”

Lyricist Dr Doddarange Gowda said, “This devotional music CD has nine songs in it. Singer Ajay Warrier approached me to write lyrics for the songs. I did conduct some research and went through several books before writing the lyrics. These devotional songs have a lot of cultural essence in them.”

Lyricist V Manohar said, "Lakshmish Bhandary is young and his interest towards devotional songs is commendable. He requested veteran Rajan to compose the music for the songs. He is the only one who delivered hits over hits continuously for 40 years. He along with Nagendra composed fresh music in those times and set the trend.”
