The country is humbled when it conferred Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award of India, upon her in 1998.

That’s none other than Srimati M. S. Subbulakshmi, the legendary Carnatic musician. This well-made series of four parts has rare appearances of herself speaking about her journey in music.
