  1. Excellent explanation and Vocal presentation of my favorite Ragam. Charu you are becoming the Jewell in the crown day by day!

  2. wonderful exposition of the raga, and such soulful rendition ..truly inspirational.. dear Ms. charulatha..

    I am looking for the notations of enna punniyam seytheno.. would you pls be able to suggest some links to sites where I can get the same..

    also wondering whether the gamakam for ma is from ga or sa??

    Thanks again for this wonderful snippet .. also pls do a piece on raga JOG.. people say it is similar to nattai , but to me both are worlds apart when it comes to the feeling both evokes even though the notes per se may be same... what is your take on this..
