Yes I am pleased and happy to have got the oppurtunity to perform in Goddess Saraswathi Temple, Koothanoor on the Vijayadhasami day - 21st Oct'07. Playing Keyboard in this temple of Veena Vahini was indeed a great privilege for me and my family. Thanks especially to Jayaram mama (in the Photo above) who had confirmed / arranged this concert as early in April'07 after seeing me perform in a wedding concert in Chennai. Thanks all to all the authorities of teh templ for giving me this great oppurtunity.
We did not believe this until the performance ended and it was also nice of Ananthakrishnan anna (Violin), Ravisankar anna (mrudhangam and Sowrirajan uncle (Kanjeera & Morsing) to have come all the way with us for this presentation. AK anna had also brought his sister and we all had a great time going to Lalithambika temple & Athi Vinayaka Temple in the nearby towns. We all saw people playing inside a pond and a old meter guage train compartment just lying idle
It was also for the first time we took a journey by Private bus with the keyboard for a performance and we really enjoyed the travel by Rathimeena travels onward. The return by Reliance travels was little tedious as we could get only the last row seats. But the thought of the oppurtunity to perform at this Great Temple nullifies all these small discomforts.
The above photos shows the enjoyment we had in the trip.
