My Guru's concert i attended on 17th

Yesterday i was there at Meenakshi college for my guru's concert and was happy to see Thillaisthanam Suriyanarayanan uncle performing with Kalaimamani Kanyakumari amma. Rajeev was on support violin and Sri Vaikkom Gopalakrishnan on the main Mrudhangam. with Sri Ganesh Rao on Tabla. It was a nioce concert but i could not stay full length due to exam i had today. Hope to catch up next concert in full. Here are few photos from Sri Villiwakkam Raghuraman uncle's camera as pictures in mine did not come good.

The concert for Panjamuka Anjeneya Temple on 15th Dec'09 was special in a way because K. Dakshanamurthy anna (Ghatam & Morsing) was performing in Chennai stage for the first time. What a great place to start with! Appa remembered my first 90 mts concert way back in 2003 which blessing has brought me to whatever small level i am now in. He has been performing in Mumbai for several years and now has settled down to Chennai getting trained under Trivandrum Balaji anna. Playing a concert with a guru itself is great and to have that in this auspicious place is real blessing. With Rajeev, we all had a concert to be blessed with Lord Anjeneya and few of ardent carnatic rasikas and mainly devotees who had turned up inspite of rain. Thanks to Ramaswamy mama and his son & family for giving this oppurtunity. After the concert i went to Pethachi auditorium and listened to Sri Ashok Ramani. Enjoyed the music and also rava dosa in the canteen.
