A great Day in my life - Meeting Dr Ravi Dattatreya, the person who gave me a Keyboard in Nov'04 and oppurtunity to perform exclusively for him and his family.

I was always wanting to meet Ravi uncle and get his blessings in person and that dream came true today, on the 30th Jun'07 when we visited him at Bangalore with his family. Ravi uncle was in India for private function in his family for which we were invited. As we could not attend the function day we checked and met him today in Bangalore and thanks to Ravi uncle and family who had spared time to see me in spite of their busy schedule to pack up and leave tonight to USA.

I was happy to perform in front of him but only thing that i had taken my new board. I am sure god will give me an oppurtunity to make Ravi uncle see me perform on his board as well in the near future. Srivatsava anna (Ravi uncle's son), Mrs Ravi aunty and all his relatives were very knowledgeable and appreciated me with their blessings. Ravi uncle made me richer today - this time with his cash reward and also blessed me for a great future. All the aunties, uncle and grandmas also blessed me. You can also visit for a small video clipping of the Rama Namavali with Dr Ravi uncle's family members.

A great day to have got blessings from great people and also receiving this long pending Prize certificate from POGO TV.

Private concert on 17th June’07

I enjoyed the concert today with the team of Ananthakrishnan anna – Violin, Thillaisthanam Suriyanarayanan uncle – Mrudhangam, Saravanan – Pad, Suri uncle – Guitar, Pradeep uncle – Tabla, Hariharasubramaniam anna – Ghatam with Girish of Karthik Audio manning the audio system.

We started the concert early against the scheduled of 7pm as we had almost a full house by about 640pm itself. The audience were very pleased with our performance and appreciated every song rendered. Requests for songs started coming in very early and I was happy that I could render almost every one. The crowd made me remember the turn out one of the concerts I performed at the same venue for Padmashree Sri Nalli sir’s function for felicitating Padma Awardees year back.

I am so happy today as i know we will be taking delivery of our new Maruthi Zen - Estilo Car (Pearl Silver Colour) Tomorrow.

I am happy to have spent my holidays well with lot of concerts which were outstation and also in DOHA. The trip to Thekkady which we had to cancell from Theni, The concert at the temple premises of Goddess shrine at Thirunageswaram etc were the highlights of my holidays.

It was nice to have been a part of “Fun day Out” celebrated by POGO and Cartoon Network on the 2nd June’07 in Chennai.

I was very happy to have taken a break from the routine to have gone for a drive to Mahabaliburam along with my chithappa’s sons Surya and Sowmya last week end. As we liked appa decided to take a room in Mamalla Beach resort and we enjoyed our stay with a great game of cricket with soft ball on the shore. It was also a great swimming session for almost 3 to 4 hours in the resort pool.

We continued our drive to Pondy and we visited Auroville and Mother’s Ashram which were a real great spiritual experience. The drive on ECR was fantastic and all of us enjoyed it.

Looking forward to all your blessings and wishes as i am going to school tomorrow – 14th June’07 and hoping to have a great year in the 7th Standard.

I had a great day today being my mother's birthday and it was also a good day because i was performing in front of many of Chennai's leading company's Chairmen, CEOs and MDs who were all present for Times of India's Trail Blazer Awards 2007 held today. I performed with Paul Jacob uncle on bass Guitar, Donnan Murray uncle on the Lead Guitar and Balu uncle on the Mrudhangam. I enjoyed playing this concert particularly when Donnan uncle and myself were on free flow in Jog and Vakulabaranam.

I was happy that top industrialists came and appreciated me and amma was happy that i had a good concert on her birthday. Also after a long time Akyilesh anna was with me for almost throughout the day as we recorded the Gayathri Manthra on keyboard to be incorporated in my upanayanam Video cd. To see few video clipping get on to

A concert that satisfied by Aaa...thatha!

In my younger days i used to call my mother's father as Aaa..thatha as he used to teach me music and my father's father as Thapi (his actual name is Pathy). Yesterday in my concert for my father's friend's son Dhanvin's upanayanam i performed a little bit of Violin and this moment was probably the most happiest for him as he always wanted me to play violin.

I performed violin during Mohan raga varnam and also for kalpanaswaram in Vaathapi Ganapathim and i think it came out well as my thaatha appreciated very much for this effort. Here is the video links:
and please forward your opinion my email to keyboardsathya(at)

It was also for the first time i performed with Mrudhangam - Thillaisthanam Suriyanarayanan uncle, Kanjeera - Harsih anna, Ghatam - Hariharasubramaniam and Thavil - Sourirajan uncle and was happy. Appa's friend KNR uncle and family was with us and i enjoyed playing with his son Koushik - a sprite fanatic!!!! at our house and we had a great time.

It was after almost a year or more my brother (athai's son) Viky performed (1st Picture) with me on pad and we enjoyed the show very much. My composition came out very well and here is a small clipping

I was also moved by the gesture of Arjun Ganesh anna when he offered his mrudhangam for Sri Sriniavasa Raghavan, brides' father, to perform on his mrudhangam(2nd picture). Incidentally Mr SV has been a gold medalist in Mrudhnagam and i understand he was indeed playing after many years. He played well for the krithi Venkatachala Nilayam.

The concert was in Thirumulaivoyil and we all went in a Innova car and had a good time cracking jokes while traveling both ways from to my house.
