Does someone know who the mridangist is in this picture?

Was surprised to see an elderly left-handed mridangist in such an old picture.

Well Keshav's portrait matches it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FslnB0f0ruc

I also have seen him play in DD relays/replays during 80(s). His siShya , a YACMer lives in Dallas. I will get confirmation.

I don't think so, Kuntalavarali. The sketch matches the photograph though.
