Had a wonderful Pooja days this year with a good Pooja done on the morning of Saraswathi Pooja i.e. 23rd Oct'12 with my friend coming home in time to join us and so was our KBSI - KBS Inculcation membrs, where we have members being guided to bring their musical thoughts on keyboard, Bharath and Murali with their mom! We did our pooja for all the books and instruments inside our house and proceeded to do pooja for all our vehicles when these people joined us! It was fun all through out and happy they also enjoyed being with us!
In the evening it was indeed a concert in a devine atmosphere at the Sri Mahaswami Vidhya Mandhir School in Rajakilpakkam where we were surprised to see live kind of Statues of Maha Periyava! Godess Kamakshi Temple is indeed great here in the school premises. The school is a resident school for the under privileged and they have around 175 students learning vedas!
Presently they have till 8th std, if i am remember right and has both State and CBSE streams with the choice for them to take it up. The hall in which we performed was great with right ambience and had gave a presentation blessed by Kanchi Maha Periyava! Thanks to Karaikal Venkat anna on violin, R. Sankaranarayanan anna on Mrudhangam and Hariharasubramainam anna on Ghatam. We also need to express our sincere thanks to Mr. Gopal who handled the audio. Hope to come and perform here more often!
The concert on 24th October, 2012 on the Vijayadasami day was indeed special particularly for my appa as it is a place where actually my appa started creating / continue his Carnatic music interest! Yes it is the house of his very dear friend in Diwakar uncle and he was so overwhelmed that his son was performing and he was on the stage position putting Thalam! He has seen almost all the leading musicians / artists of this great and to get a good report / opinion from the great 87 year old Musicologist and dear uncle Sri Seshadri and when he said,"I have made it Sathya", my father was so moved and appreciated me for this great effort! I thank my enhancement team for thh day in K. J. Dileep anna and Chidambaram Saisankar anna, who was actually teaming with me for the first time! This was also attended by another 92 year old senior musician and also blessed our team after staying right through the concert! What an experience audience with years of listening to good music from great musicians at their best always! They also sat for our concert and appreciated our efforts! Indeed inspiring me, increasing my confidence and make me happy that i can go forward in my efforts with good hopes!
