With Sri TVG, Suresh not only learnt the art and style but also discipline and humility which are the prerequisities for a dignified musician. Suresh was adopted by Sri.TVG when he was 12 years old, seeking a Guru, after winning the prestigious Talent Search Scholarship from Govt. of India. It was the beginning of a very fine relationship that till today guides suresh in the hard pursuit of nothing but excellence.
