It was a nice coincidence that we were there in Rajapalayam on the 19th of this month also (we had performed on 19th July'08 earlier) and this time it was with Venkat anna on violin, Suri uncle on Mrudhangam and Hari anna on Ghatam & Morsing. As usual we had great time visiting temples. This time we visited TiruvannaMalai Sri Venkatachalapathy Temple and Andal Temple in Srivilliputtur. H/ever no kili Josyam this time but bought lot of Pal-Gova for all in Chennai! The photo at the temple is with the person who was always with us right from the station till our departure. Except amma and myself, every one tasted pathaneer also. It was for a Royal family and we were in deed treated like guests of the Kings!
We had a good time playing cricket and also presented a good concert i the evening. The Nadaswaram realy gave a great performance before our concert which i enjoyed very muc. The highlight was that the Bridegroom Mr. Karthick sang a song - "En nenjil palli kondavan" and it was so nice to see his guru enjoying this. Karthick anna sang very well considering that it was on his reception day and he was almost pushed to sing! Great attempt indeed photo of his singing also given above). It was a learned audience and almost who's who of the area was present to greet the couple. It was also nice of Sri Bharath uncle for who's daughter's wedding we were there on the 19th July'08, to have come and seen us at the hotel. Sri Bharath also had made a thanks card for all the people who had come and it was so nice of him to have made my CD and present it to them along with a thanks card! So moving it was to see the card and i am really blessed with these gestures. I hope to live up to the expectations and i shall surely works to wards that as a goal!
