A wonderful concert. It started with a brief welcome talk and an introduction. The concert started with a rare varNam. Smt. Rama mentioned that Sri Ramachandran was a great vidwan with a huge repertoire and was known for his offbeat selections to teach and perform. She mentioned that she would present such compositions in this concert.

As she mentioned, except for the main kriti, all other pieces were rare and unheard off, to this writer. Some of which were not easy to find on google either. Still, each piece was rendered with a traditional gait and grandeur. The manodarma aspects were handled even better. One is short of words to express the feeling for each of the pieces. Should it be called satisfaction or the contending of the mind or soul! Was it the music! Was it the rendition! Whatever it be, one had to be there to listen and understand the feeling this concert created. It was an awesome concert and one to remember for a long time.

Delighted that there is a Ramachandra Sir Memorial happening. I wish it occurs in Dec-Jan so NRI students can listen too. And Smt Rama Ravi with her vidwat would have been perfect for the concert. And... going down the list, I can say I know a few of these. I particularly love Maruva Niku in Poorvi Kalyani.

Sir was a strict disciplinarian and I can say now that us students learnt a lot with that need to be 'just right'
