60th Independence Day celebrated at IOB Staff college, Chennai

It was just two days before appa got a call from Mr Mohan of IOB, Staff College, Anna Nagar checking with the possibility of me performing there today 15th Aug'07 morning. Appa readily accepted as it is nice way to celebrate the Independence Day with a performance. We were asked to come for the flag hoisting function itself but we could not make it as i had come very late after a rehearsal session ydy.

I performed with Rajagopal uncle on Tabla and played few carnatic, Hindi and patriotic songs as requested. It was well attended and also had some variety programme also apart from my concert. Another uncle who is a staff prof. in the college performed "Ajare" in his keyboard and also Churaliya on Guitar. One uncle, a retired officer performed mimicry. There were two probation officers who sang and one of their voice was really sounding good.

I felt happy to receive memento from Sri Ashok Dugade, Executive Director of IOB on this day and i also liked the auditorium of the Staff College. Sri Samir Baruah, Depy GM & Principal of the college, and his wife appreciated me for the presentation and informed that many General Managers and senior officers of IOB had attended the concert. Thanks to Mohan uncle who was instrumental to organize this concert for me. We had a sumptuous lunch after which we took some photos outside the College premises.
