It just can’t get any better!

Last weekend was too good! An excellent concert of Chitraveena Ravikiran on Saturday! (There’s nothing more to add to what Ram has written about the concert) I am not going to miss any concert in which M.A.Sundaresan plays the violin from now on. M.A.Sundaresan and Umayalpuram Sivaraman were the main reasons why I went to the Ravikiran’s concert. The concert had a line-up of my favourites, Reetigowlai, Vasanta (It has become my favourite recently), Surutti (No words to describe those!) and Neelambari!

Yesterday, I got to listen a Dikshitar krithi, ishAnAdishivAkAramanche in Sahana raagam, for the first time, thanks to Sai Prasad. The krithi was lovely! (Sahanavaache kaekkaNumaa πŸ˜‰ )

The only disappointment in the weekend was watching Federer lose the match. 😦

It’s Monday today and the weather here is so pleasant. It rained in Madras! Yay! Just when I started from home, the first song that I listened to in the radio was one of my most favourites, Thee Thee! (Rahman, you are the best! πŸ™‚ ) Right now, I am listening to a wonderful Kedaragowlai by MDR! What a way to begin a week!

Hope the week remains as great as it has started! Good Morning and have a great week ahead, folks! πŸ™‚

    Hello Aparna,
    Talking of a great start! Well, today afternoon, I just switched on Shruthi. I was about to have my lunch when the first words I heard were Maayamma Yani Ne – Ahiri (what a coincidence – Ahiri) being sung by TNS. I must have missed an Alapana in Ahiri as the violinist was just finishing his when I switched on! A great rendition.One thing I noticed in TNS’ rendition was he rendered the entire Charanam. Most people I have heard so far sing only one line of it! Indeed, it seems a great week ahead!

    I was listening to AR’s “Sakhiye nee than Thunaye” from Anthimandhaarai when it rained! : )
    Reetigowlai and Vasanta in one concert should have been a moment that too by all these maestros! Pretty bad miss for me, this one… 😦 , Hopefully the combination does another concert together..!

    Sathej,
    Thanks. That’s nice πŸ™‚

    Aravind,
    Yup

    Sivaraman,
    Yeah even I don’t seem to find any Nadal fans
    Thanks

    Sriram,
    Sakhiye nee! Wow!
    It would be great if the combo performs again!

    Seems like a wonderful concert..reethigowlai,vasantha and surutti sound too tempting[:)]. And reg Nadal..well how many ever french opens he wins, Federer is still going to remain #1. I like them both..as long as we get to see such quality games, who cares who wins. And ishAnAdi is a beautifulllllll krithi. I have been consumed by it ever since i heard it..perhaps the best sahAna ever!!>–
