Four great souls to whom God was a friend. Listen to the story of saints who enriched Tamil, singing the praise of the God they loved and revered and spreading godliness with their verses.

This audio book is great, lot of info was provided about nalvar, this is my first audio book and definitely a remarkable one.
This book is full of song compositions - that is how it has to be for this title & content.
In this audio version, a listener can get the full impact as the songs are rendered in musical form by specialists (Oothuvar) - exactly as it is always rendered in Shiva temple.
Hence reading a printed book of this same would be incomplete without those musical songs.
However, those compositions are matchless wisdom and hence it ALSO requires reading.
So, this title is so unique that
1. Only reading a printed book will not give you the impact & feel.
2. Only listening to this audio book will not make you an expert on the song compositions
Aptly, the content is beyond the biographical details of these reverent saints.
Their contribution of tamil song compositions about Shaivam (Spirituality) were interlaced very well.
Narration style is good. Narration - Delivery, Speed, Tone, Spacing, Consistency in voice level were perfect to enjoy the flow as well as to digest.
Recently I heard many versions of discourse on the same topic rendered by various other experts. But almost all of those had narration problem (sudden high pitch, etc). So I could appreciate Vidhya Chariputra's effort.
