An evening with Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia

The curtain raiser for the National Convention of SPICMACAY was held at KV Pattom today evening with a performance by Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia. The National Convention of Spicmacay will be held in Trivandrum in the last week of May. The last time I heard him live was in 1999 during the Vasant Habba at Hesserghetta (Bangalore).
An evening with Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia
Today’s performance was very interactive with Panditji quizzing the students and explaining the various nuances of the pieces he was playing. I am looking forward to the events at the National Convention. Hope I will be able to attend some performances.

Gas wale, bahar wale

Inspite of having two cooking gas connections with two different agencies, the cooking in the kitchen came to a standstill today as all the cylinders were empty. So irrespective of the agencies, the availability of Indane gas on time is a big issue.

Daredevils and the band

A bunch of daredevils on their magnificent motorcycles held our breath yesterday with their display. The occasion was the Army Week celebrations being held in Trivandrum. Everyday there is something interesting to see at the various venues across the city.
