A great trip to Bangalore and Coimbatore.

It was indeed a nice trip with back to back concert at Bangalore on 22nd for a private concert and at Coimbatore for a public concert at Kanavai Sai Temple. Our team of Sherthalai Sivakumar uncle, Trivandrum balaji anna, Hariharasubramanian anna with my apa on thalam gave a presentation which was liked very much at the function in Bangalore. in fact it was one of the rare scene when almost aroudn 100 or more people standing in a semi circle and dancing and singng along when we were playing the last medley. The final Raghupathi was indeed great with almost every one chanting or clapping. A very memorable concert.

We left early morning on 23rd Nov'09 to Coimbatore and reached around pm. We went to a hotel and had lunch and rest. Around 530pm we went to Smt Jayanthi's residence where we saw Putaparthi Saibaba's divine powers with sandal sprinkled all over the pooja room as a mark of his visit being his Birthday! Yes a great scene and then we proceeded to the Temple premises for the concert. The temple Swagatham Sai Mandir, Thiruvalluvar Nagar Bus stop, Somayanur, Thadagam Road, (Kanuval-Anaikatty) - Coimbatore, is indeed a great place of worship just at teh foot of a small hill.and is managed by Smt Jayanthi, Sai Krupa Temple -45 A Arunachalam St, K.K. Pudur, Coimbatore 641 038. t was a divine experience when we performed 8 Sai bhajans apart from aghuvamsa and Jagadhodharana. We finished the concert with traditional Sai aarthi song.

Then came the surprise that i was called upon to cut the cake placed for Saibaba's birthday and i was pleasantly shocked and did the act of cutting the cake with full of devotion. What a great blessing for me! - coming just before 2 days of my album launch titled "Bhajans on Keybaord". A concert i will never forget in my life time!
