I found the news of Apara Ghantasala to be very interesting, but I did
want to point out that similarities in voice and style were pointed out in
the past with Ramakrishna, although, to my knowledge, he was never titled
in such a way.  In addition, someone on this group itself, I don't
remember who however, a long time ago, pointed out that G's very son,
Vijay Kumar, in some pitches, sounds a lot like his father.  Some how
though, neither of them ever turned into stars.  I think the
industry and fans all over are pretty starved for Ghantasala's music and
voice, and I sincerely hope that this new singer can do something for us.  
	But, I did also want to say, that G was one of a kind, and so was
his era. . . 						Sridhar
