To be very frank i enjoyed every moment of this hectic days and probably feel one of the best has come out of the last concert with great encouragement from my appa. I have asked him to upload the entire concert in my audio blog http://audiotracksofsathya.blogspot.com and he said he will do it in a day or two. Pls listen to the tracks and forward your comments. Now there will be a gap for concerts which i am to use for taking more krithis for this December season and also to catch up with my studies. Bye for now and wishing you all a Very Happy Deepavali.

We reached Chennai from Bheemavaram at 9am and appa had asked the car to come to Central and the team that arrived from Bheemavaram now were set to go to Bangalore by car. (Tavera). Thanks to Perumal uncle, appa's friend, who had coordinated for this car with driver Mr Babu who was too good - both in driving skills and nature.
A few lines on Bangalore traffic. We left around 1230 from Chennai and reached Bangalore border by 5pm. However to get to 24 kms from then on to Malleswaram it took us almost 2 hrs to reach. It looked as though the entire human were living in Bangalore. The traffic was really heavy and junctions with many roads were also very confusing. However we reached just in time & started the concert with a quick wash & change. On return we had a good tea in the outskirts and later had breakfast at Hotel TamilNadu - Krishnagiri which was really good. I thouroughly enjoyed the journey particulartly the return as we saw beautiful scenaries. The above pictures will explain my feelings.
It was indeed a long journey by train, which ofcourse I enjoyed, and we reached in Bheemavaram by Circar Express around 8am (2hrs delay) and were met by Sr Vekatamana - Secy of the sabha. On reching the room as i was testing the instruemnt, the secretary was happy to hear carnatic sounds from keyboard (thats what he said) and gave some list which he said to list as were audience choices. Then after few minutes his brother Sri Rangasai came and when i performed the pallavis of the krithis he showed pleasant shock and hugged & kissed me. He blessed and asked me perform few krithis in the concert in the evening.
Mr Rangasi took me to a leading college in AP namely D.N.R. College & introduced me to all the top officials in the College. I understand this college was started in the year 1945 and has classes from KinderGarden to Doctarate level. I was felicitated in the college and in the evening i swa a huge turn out of audience. I prayed god for a good presentation and it turned out to be one, thanks to the Almighty's grace and also the team of Rajeev anna on violin, Suri uncle on Mrudhangam and Sowri uncle on Kanjeera, Ghatam, Morsing and Konnakol. I got some cash as gift and i think god gave me this for celebrating Deepavali.

Performed a concert in Mylapore again actually the third building from where we performed on 29th Oct'07. Today it was enhanced by Arjun Ganesh anna on mrudhangam, Pradeep uncle on Tabla, Suri uncle on BAss guitar, Sridhar anna on Drums and Ravishankar anna on additional keyboard and vocal support
What a talented person Ravi ann is! Yes he plays Mrudhangam, Keyboard and also sings very well. I understand he is now learning to play drums also. Appa and myself decided to have him as additional keyboard to get a different feel of the concert and really worked.
Nice of Sridhar anna to come and play inspite of the fact that he is the main person in organising his brother's wedding on the 1st Nov'07. Thank you anna.
