ArunSri,
I adore Lalita and you would have enjoyed it as RTP. Few musicians have sung in past lalita RTP.There are few musicians in the past who have taken RTP in Lalitha.

Is powai fine arts a very recent and new sabha . I did not know the place chandivali (only knew kandivili), googled to find this venue is in between ghatkophar and andheri. I am assuming the recent metro is a blessing to reach this venue. Nice to hear Mumbai is spreading in other areas other than matunga,mulund and chembur.

I am assuming shivkumar anantharaman is mumbai settled vidwan, any more pointers about him please?. Vijay Natesan is an ex mumbaikar.

Tx for your review, KG has done a clean and meticulous job for 2 and half hours.
