assistants for Viswanathan Ramamoorthy during. Then they
were introduced by Kannadasan to 'Sando' Chinnapa Thevar,
Thevar gave them opportunity to music individually in his
film 'Magarasi' starred by Ravichandran and Jayalalitha.
Thats why they added in title as "Kavinger Vazhangiya
Thevarin" Shanker Ganesh, as a token of thanks for both of
Dhevar gave many more opportunities for Shanker Ganesh to
music for his films. Shanker Ganesh also worked as music
directors for two MGR films, in which all songs are super
hits, Idhaya Veenai and Naan Yen Pirandhen

is performing stage music programmes now.
