Reached My Own Country India and my Home in West Mambalam!
It was indeed a joyful tour starting on the May 18th till today morning May 27th, 2012 with Dr. PAdma Subramaniam aunty and Troupe to South Africa!

Totally a new experience compared to my first tour to SA in 2003! Interestingly It was once again Durban City which was my first stop for stay even this time! I had the pleasure of seeing Dinesh Naidoo uncle, who is indeed a greatest well wisher and guide for me! He took him time out and met me at the hotel as soon as we checked -in. A great human he is! He also gave me few sim cards for us to top up and use but we actually did not even use one and may be will be returning it to him when he comes in!

I also had the oppurtunity to perform Instrumental duet with Veenai Sri. B. Kannan uncle and Sri Sekar on mrudhangam before each of the dance performance by Dr. Padma Subramaniam and Troupe which consisted of Anugraha, Neeraja, Srinidhi, Ramya, Mahathi, Shyam as dancers, Natuvangam & Vocal by Smt. Gayathri Kannan and Veenai B. Kannan uncle Sekar uncle on Mrudhangam & myself on Keyboard.

I shall detail about the trip little later and in the meanwhile please enjoy the photographs!

A Sad Day

It is indeed a sad day today as i have lost one of my greatest well wisher and guide in Dr. T. P. Naidoo uncle who i understand breathed his last at 10 am today morning in Durban, USA. He has been a great inspiration and a mentor to me and our family. He has done immense society to the Tamils and in Particular Indian in South Africa and it is indeed a great loss for all of us.

For i am what today, it is also because of the efforts of this great uncle and his daughter Smt. Vasantha Naidoo, through Indian Academy, Durban South Africa, giving me an opportunity for a concert tour to South Africa in 2003 just when i was 8 years! Unless for this tour i would not have met Dinesh Naidoo uncle and the albums he made on me! 

The first photo is the one i had taken during his visit to India in 2005 and the second one is the one i had taken with him in my first tour of SA.

May we all pray for his soul to rest in peace!

self in "Yugiyudan Yugiyungal" May 04, 2012

I have seen and also been in many talk shows and this is indeed one special as you are focused on humor all through the show but message reaches in the easiest way possible!

Thanks to Yugi uncle who was very nice to us and made us feel at home and enjoy the show! The shooting started around 1145 pm and ended around 230am! What an effort he takes and kudos to his dedicated team who work with the same energy level as that of Yugi uncle! In fact his colleague Sri. Ganapathy Narayanan penned down lyrics for a composition of mine and i hope to have that sung by my mom and will upload it later! This happened as we were waiting to go on the recording and he was indeed amazing!

The team full of thoughts and energy and that's the reason it is a Success Show!
