It has been really hectic September with quarterly exams, concerts and rehearsals, by the grace of The Almighty have come to the end of this month! Then why do i say Wonderful September! Well its because of some unusual pleasant happenings which make this month very special! Two good concert presentation in Vinayakar temples during Chathurthi celebrations and two different concert presentations and reactions from audience on the 21st and 23rd Septemebr'12!
During the concert on the 21st Sep i started performing a bhajan and an elderly lady who was amazed by our team's performance walked up to me after the bhajan, took a Dollar embedded with Sai Baba from her Mangal Soothra and presented to me saying, "Baba directs me to handover this dollor to you" and the scene became very emotional indeed! What a blessing! Credits to all the vidwans who performed with me on stage, Sri. S P Ananthapadmanabha on violin, sri Thillaisthnam R Suriyanarayanan on mrudhangam, Sri Pradeep on Tabla, and Karthick Audio - PA system provider!
On the 23rd Sep at the Korattur Cultural Academy - KCA concert which was fairly well attended as informed by the office bearers, I was handed over a Thirukural book by a rasika during the concert and was appreciated by a journalist/musician from a leading Tamil daily after the concert, for our rendition of Bhairavi, Sahana, Kalayani krithis and the Maand Thillana! Again the credits also goes to the team which performed with me namely Sri K.j. Dileep on violin, Sri Suri Suriyanarayananon Mrudhangam and sri Harihara Subramanian on ghatam and morsing & the PA system provided in the auditorium. In this case credits also goes to the well learned/ mannered audience of KCA! Special mention toTeam KCA which spontaneously offered to hold my 1000th concert, whenever it happens, this being one among 900+.
Whenever we have a thought over the uncertainty of a upcoming musician's life, me being one among many, The Almighty guides us with these kind of good symptoms and directs us accordingly! We once again seek the Grace of The Almighty and wishes of all our well wishers to take us forward in our journey of enchanting LIFE! Om Gurubhyo Namaha!
