Mahesh Venkateshwaran after quitting from a leading IT company started madrasana .Madrasana was started in his home where well curated concerts was up . Most importantly he did extraordinary sound setup , a kind of illayaraja or an AR Rehman studio recording for the carnatic music concert. raja Rao sirs son Sean Rolden played a big part in sound setup that came in youtube.He is doing surely for the sake of love of music and his curation is taking shape this year in December to even 5 concerts in sathyam theatre . I recollect around dec 2015 when there was flood he offered one of his fully furnished houses for the artists as some of them had to undergo severe stress due to floods
Mahesh is surely a treasure and is following in the footsteps of Jaya balakrishnan, Arkay ramakrishnan,Coolkarni(ofcourse) ,Nageswaran Sir(ofcourse ) and now Mahesh venkateshwaran is doing something very significant for chennai carnatic music. Chennai is undergoing an IT transformation project which is needed and moving away from excess legacy - we need more sabhas in line with count of artists. Mahesh will succeed surely in this madrasana project unlike quite a bit of IT baloon projects which is part of any one's destiny (thalaiezhuthu).
