Vaikkom: It was a dream-come-true moment for singer Vaikkom Vijayalakshi when noted singer K J Yesudas visited her at her residence here on Tuesday. 

She grew up listening to the songs of Yesudas and regards him as her 'guru' who inspired her to become a singer.

Yesudas's wife Prabha Yesudas also accompanied him.

Vijayalakshmi remembers offering 'dakshina' to him and receiving his blessings years ago when he arrived at Vaikkom for a programme.

Vijayalakshmi has now become a popular singer in Malayalam and Tamil film industries. Though she is visually impaired, she possess a rare talent to memorise every song after listening to it.

Vijayalakshmi’s father Muraleedharan and mother Vimala were equally elated. 

Yesudas also visited the auditorium where Viajyalakshmi has been practising music.
