On a day which had concerts by famous artists at other places, I had gone to this concert because of the theme and because I thought I will get to hear some rare compositions not in vogue these days and I must say that I wasn’t dissapointed. Smt Sumathi Krishnan rendered the songs well. But the sad part was that even the tiny Narada Gana Sabha Mini Hall was noticeably empty with only about 15 people present in all, who I guess were either organizers or were in some way or other, known to the artist.
