A grand concert in Coimbatore on the 31st Mar'07

Just after finishing the concert presume my 350th at Sri Baktha Anjeneyar temple, Ashoknagar we took Cheran Express to go to Coimbatore for a concert on 31st Mar'07. Amma had made kothamalli sadam and curd rice for all of us for dinner which we took in the train. Annathakrishnan (violin) anna, Thillaisthanam Suriyanarayanan (Mrudhangam) uncle, Bass guitar Suri uncle, Sridhar (drums) anna and Rajagopal (Tabla) uncle praised amma for the great dinner she gave everyone. I also take a share of the compliment as i helped amma to make curd rice!!

On reaching we understood the Bundh called for by the TN Govt. was in full force and so decided to remain indoor in the hotel till the evening. We all played cricket in the room and had timely food also. The party had taken care of us so well that it was like a picnic for us in the hotel.

We went to the venue in the evening and i saw a massive hall and full of richness at the highest level every where. We performed a good concert and it was reflecting with the audience coming in good number near the stage just before the start of the carnatic medley we performed and gave us all a standing applause appreciating the performance. All of us had good dinner and returned the same night by train to Chennai. Ravi uncle, the audio incharge had recorded the concert and has sent me a copy of the audio cd which has really come very good. Thanks uncle.
