  1. dear madam

    first i wish to express my sincere thanks to your Isaipayanam trust to conduct free live-in-concert by you and your sister.

    I one among the thousands who attended the divas for ever by your sister and enjoyed the songs including the Hindi numbers.The way by which the programme was organised and presented the urge to"padidalame" everything was good.

    The research,collection and the rendering of pictures and the comments reminded me of a musical workshop.Your efforts to resurrect those memorable melodies are commendable.I sincerely thank your father for such an upbringing.

    Thanks and hope to meet in another classic.
