Pongal O Pongal

It was a lovely Pongal day and I ate lots of it. Then ran a lot on my elliptical...

Appeared on SUN Tv "Pattikada Pattanama" and Jaya TV "Galatta Kutcheri" with Mano sir on 15th Jan.

I performed at the Thiruvaiyaru Tamil Isai Festival on the 15th. The concert was between 11:30 pm and 1 am (yes you read it right!), and the audience were sitting and listening to music well into the night. Earlier I visited the Panchanatheswarar Temple and Dharmasamvardhini temple. This was the place where Dikshitar composed the Madhyamavati piece Dharmasamvardhini, and Syama Sastri composed the Varali piece Karunajoodavamma. In Thyagaraja's Muripemu Galige also there in a reference to Panchanatheeswara temple in the charanam. Very large premises, and nice darshan. Also prayed at the Aatkondeswarar sannidhi.

A nice change from the city lights!
