In a casual discussion, when my music friends indicated that its Dr Baby Sreeram peforming at Gayana Samaja, I cancelled all my plans for the evening and rushed to the venue. I had heard her before at RLKM almost 18 months back and was thoroughly impressed by her vidwat. 

The concert opened with all time hit varna viribOni. Vocalist added additional energy into it when she started singing the manodharma chitta swaras at the end of composed swaras. The violin returns were exact imprint of the vocalist. A fast-paced rendition to welcome the Lords above. Indeed, it was well responded by them as there was a brisk 10 minutes rain as an applause from the heaven above. As I mentioned earlier, " when the Gods stop doing their work !!", they were swayed by the class of the concert, and stopped to listen to it with pin drop silence.

A brief outline to ABhOgi, the vocalist dwelled into swaras of srI mahAgaNapate. It was an apt rendition for the evening deviating from the regular hamsadhwani / gaula to invoke lord Ganapathi. Excellent chemistry was demonstrated by the accompanying artists on Violin, Mridanga and ghata. There were many shabhash moments on stage while they complimented each other.


The sub main piece of the concert was all time KalyAni hit of st tyAgarAja nidhi cAla sukhama. Nereval and swaras were demonstrated with utmost ease and tranquility that the song deserved. 

I doubt was it an indirect hint to the organisers who meted out a very poor treatment to the whole program.  I could easily take a headcount the audience, while those who made it were those who were updated through word of mouth. I wish to say, Organisers need to use technology to reach out to masses to ensure the hall has a respectable attenandance and respect the vidwat and hard work put in by the artists. Sorry to say Bangalore Gayana Samaja is generations behind the rest. Please wake up !! Your approach is not only doing injustice to the institution, but also to the world of carnatic music.

After a brief filler in nAyaki, Vocalist performed her own composition in valaji. It must be appreciated, that the artist not only has a large repertoire of compositions from the yesteryear masters, she is also a vAggEyakAra in her own right and is using every concert platform to present her compositions. Very rare we get to hear the compositions from its composers.

tOdi, the main rAga for the evening was dealt in complete. The very first opening note was a deviation from the standard takeoff and the whole AlApane came out as completely new. The adage "tOdi eshtu tOdidarU sAladu" became a reality.

The percussion duet that followed the nereval and pretty new phrases for muktAyi, was unbelievably riveting and was worth a standing applause from the audience. The ghata artist matched mridangist in every beat with great ease. 

The concluding pieces included a shlOka followed by krishnA nI bEgane bAro and her own tillana composition in Ahir bhairav. 

As the evening drifted into silence after a full 3 hour concert, the tunes of the evening are still reverberating. The fortunate ones were present to have an experience of bliss. Hope the organisers do a better job of publicising and using technology to reach out so that the next such monthly concert would have a respectable audience.

My meeting with Kalam

It happened on the day he came to attend the wedding reception of Munnu / Simar at New Delhi residence of Munnu, 25th Dec 2013. Most of us in the family crowd were very keen to get a sight of the Missile Man of India who is known for his simplicity. With most of my family members (who have worked with the higher rings of Government) appraising us of how to interact (rather behave) with a state dignitary we were keeping our fingers crossed for his arrival. 

Though the reception proceedings started by around 11.00 AM, he did not turn out till around 3.30 PM. We were thoroughly disappointed that his work has kept him away from his personal commitments. But not to disappoint my Uncle (who reported to him in Dr Kalam's previous responsibility as the Scientific Advisor to PM of India) he did make an attempt to come visiting us at around 4.30 PM !! We were all excited ignoring the advice that we had received earlier during the day. Since the crowd was depleting fast after a heavy lunch we were hoping to get a suitable moment for photo ops and autographs .... when he walks in.


When his car entered the Bungalow complex, the remaining crowd (which was astonishingly huge for that time of the day after a heavy lunch) surrounded him, as he walked through into the hall. I was very keen to get some candid moments of the visit. He interacted keenly with the senior members of the family as my uncle introduced them and finally as he shifted to younger generation in the crowd, it was the time that we all waited. My daughter was the first to be introduced as she was walking with my uncle all along. For her it was a dream come true.

He had brought books as the wedding gift for the newly married couple. For almost 30 minutes of his visit to the event, the stars of the day was completely ignored as he stole the show. He was very keen to interact with the kids of the family.

That 30 minutes. . .did not feel like it was 30 minutes until I checked the time stamp on my photos. He was gone like w whirlwind. I was still standing reviewing the moments that I had captured. 

The child in me was reborn that day to see his energy levels at his age of 80. I don't think I can forget that day as long as I live. Neither will my daughter with her prized possession of his autograph
