September, 2009 - A great month - Dreams coming True!
It has been great month of musical efforts combined with Quarterly exams for me this September. I was so thrilled when our school authorities gave me permission to go to Tirumala for performing during my quarterly exam and my sincere thanks for the same without which i could not have performed at Tirumala. This was one of my great dreams and so was an oppurtunity that came my way with the performance at Sringeri Bharathi Vidhyashram on the 14th and 20th September, 2009 respectively. It was also a great blessing when Sri Umayalpuram Sir was coming into the hall on the 20th September'09 and i was so moved when he staed back for the entire concert. I hope to get good advice from him when i meet him personally soon.
Another great thing happened in my life on the 21st Sep'09 when i had the oppurtunity to accompany my mom on vocal appa on kanjeera with Kumbakonam Swaminathan anna on Mrudhangam at Agatheewarar Temple, Villiwakkam. The term Sruthi Matha - Layam Pitha came true in my life with my mom on Vocal as Srtuhi and appa on Kanjeera - Layam with self on Keyboard! What a great day it turned out to be! Congrats to my father who constantly was working towards performing on kanjeera and he did justice to his thoughts by giving a performance that was well appreciated by his immediate boss of the day Sri Swaminathan anna on Mrudhangam. I hope he continues his efforts and i am sure he will make a mark in the years to come.
Just going to school to write the exam i skipped to got to Tirumala and i am sure Lord Balaji will bring all that i have studied to my mind to do Well!. I also had some great private concert performance this month and i am now looking forward to the concert at Koothanoor - Temple of Goddess Saraswathi - on the 28th September - Saraswathi Pooja day and i am indeed blessed to have this oppurtunity. As mentioned by my dad in our other blog, this September has really been of "Dreams coming True" month!!
