The universe within

Just back from a concert at Ettayapuram - the sannidhi of Sri Muthuswami Dikshitar's samadhi (tomb).
It was organized by a host of organizations with Sri NV Subramanian at the fore front. He has been conducting this from the past 20 years!!
The day featured recitals by several musicians including Vidushi Subhashini Parthasarathy, Vidushi Radha Bhaskar, etc with each artist allocated around 45 minutes.
I sang:
  1. Narasimha Agachcha - Mohana
  2. Ishanadi - Sahana
  3. Mangala Devatha - Margadeshi
  4. Dandayudhapanim - Anandabhairavi
  5. Parandhamavathi - Dhamavathi
  6. Namaste Paradevathe - Devaranji
A humbling experience to sing in Dikshitar's sannidhi.
The solemness of the experience coupled with Sri NVS mama's hospitatility made for a pleasant and memorable trip!!!
