Keerthi,
Thank you for the song. Yes, it is lovely and Shashikiran sings it beautifully with feeling and nidAnam.
Thanks SK!

I remember you asking quite some time back if I am from the Cauvery delta, what with my opinions about purity in Carnatic music.

Having stayed quiet at that time, I have now given you the answer! I wouldn't be caught dead in Tanjore district, though I would visit the temples there! :grin:

Yes, now I have the answer from you! Isn't' it narrow-minded of us to think that only Tanjavur and Nellai areas of TN have produced great music and rasikAs? We can include North Arcot and the rest of TN too--and all the southern states as well ;)

Excluding NA (North Arcot, or North America) would certainly not be correct :P
