  1. I just happened to see some of your "Isai Payanam" videos on Youtube. Amazing. I must congratulate you on educating the masses and popularising the rich tradition of Karnatik music. I learnt quite a lot.

    Do keep up the good work.

  2. Enjoyed reading your article Harmonium Symmetry, raga Kiravani...very nicely said, and I wanted to add that lower Dha adds to evoking pathos and thus it has been used in multiple situations. u forgot to mention Illayaraja's Thnaga Changili & Bhoopalam Isaikum..both in Bagyaraj's Thooral Nininu Poochuu
    & In PK Sambandham, Kamal's sagala kala vallaveny and the next raga 22 is a symmetrical tetrachord as opposed to Harmonious Symmetry of raga 21!
