The trip this time to Madurai was for heArtbeat ensemble concert for SathGuru Thyagaraja Samajam, Madurai on teh 11th Jan'10 and enjoyed the trip with a visit to Goddess Meenakshi Temple. What a great temple! inspite of going there for many times it looks to be new in every visit. I was showing the revolving Lingam painted in the roof near the Pillaiar sannadhi to A.S. Krishnan uncle and infact Karthick uncle and Kannan uncle also saw it as a surprise! The return journey was indeed a difficult one as we did not get ac sleeper and the normal sleeper class was dirty with all kinds of insects around. With no sleep and lots of taking we were all awake almost the entire night and the train to our misfortune arrived 2 hours delayed!
I, however attended the school and in the evening performed at the Mahalingapuram ayyapa Temple which went well with Ananthakrishnan anna on Violin, Trivandrum Balaji anna on Mrudhangam and his sishya Dakshinamurthy anna on Morsing. A pleasant and a soulful concert and all of us were immensely happy to have got the blessing to perform in this temple on the 12th Jan'10.
