  1. An excellent article. I enjoyed every syllable.BTW, I wonder how "Rathiriyil Poothirukkum" was left out. I thought it was Hamsanandhi or may be Iam wrong. And y
    day's concert was highly enjoyable and the surrealistic ambience provided the perfect backkdrop. May u continue to delight all us fans, Best Regards.

  2. Dear Ms.Charulatha Mani

    I witnessed your concert on 23 December, it was mind blowing concert. Being MD of a company with stress and tight schedules, your concert gave the peace and soothing experience

    I wish you great Katcheri season ahead

    Warm regards
