Yesterday there was a concert- DKP Centenery in Academy.
Tomorrow there is a concert- Gayathri Girish in BVB for DKP Centenery.
IIRC, last year, this period, it was much less,.

But i think this year each of us are busy as though we are defense minister (Rafael) , home minister(citizenship) and external affairs minister (Mexico wall) and many many portfolios with our own whatsapp parliament. Each of us will have atleast one person close to our family/friend who is taking up his state board /central board 12th exam. Let them write the exams well

We have to catch this new crowd exactly post June 2019 and take them into mari mari ninnE murali

We may have to organize an "emergency team" for days like this - to quickly organize a house concert and spread the word :D

There has to be a close season for a few weeks so that musicians may breed. Otherwise, the stock becomes depleted, and they may even become extinct.

It does not apply to foreign waters, and musicians visiting America, for instance, are still caught and forced to give concerts.

Luckily there's no lean period for TV and Radio. Let us exploit in full the music-telecasts & broadcasts over these media. Several slots throughout day and night.
To top it all we have AIR App too!

It was a "lean" day. But Chennai has bounced back admirably. Wonderful concert by Gayathri Girish yesterday (tribute to DKP) and 2 good concerts today - Violin solo by Sayee Rakshit and Vocal concert of AvR.
