Legendary music director of Tamil cinema MS Viswanathan, fondly called as MSV, is recuperating at a private hospital in Chennai after he complained of acute shortness of breath, according to a report.
The famed musician who is known as the 'Mellisai Mannar' underwent a heart surgery few years ago and hence doctors are being extra cautious in treating the 87 year old maestro.
This being the case, MSV had refused to intake any kind of solid food even after being requested by the doctors to do so. When the physicians were worried that his health might worsen, another maestro came to the aid.
'Isaignani' Ilaiyaraaja who was there at the hospital to pay MSV a visit, came to know about his refusal to eat food and hence decided to step into action.
He approached the senior musician and told him that he has arranged some food for him from his own house and asked him if he would eat it.
Impressed with Ilaiyaraaja's concern towards him, MSV agreed to eat almost instantly and when the food arrived from Ilaiyaraaja's house, he himself fed it to MSV like he would do to feed a child.
A great gesture indeed by the 'Isaignani'. Like millions of fans, we too pray for MS Viswanathan's health and hope that the 'Thirai Isai Chakravarthy' gets back to his musical ways to present us with many more inspiring melodies.
