    1. Dear madam

      My name is Shankar and I stay in London.
      Today I happened to watch your programme Isai Payanam and was amazed.

      Thank you so much for the initiative to share your knowledge with other music lovers.

      I have become an ardent fan of yours and look forward to your next visit to London. I unfortunately could not attend your concert during May, but will surely attend during your next visit.

      My humble namaskarams to you

      Best wishes
      Shankar nanjundeswaran Iyer

    2. A zillion thanks for your column on The Hindu
