    Dear Ram:

    I stumbled on your blog site while looking for today’s concerts. Hope to see/meet you in person on Sunday (14/10/2012) at the mini hall. I have had a very positive experience at the mini hall — the youngsters’ performances are wonderful.

    Dear Ram:

    I attended the concertand enjoyed it because I knew some of the ragas. I enjoyed your Thani as well. I could not wait longer after the end. Sure to meet you soon.

    Nice to know that you are “well employed” in music while earning a good position in a “regular” career. Wish there were more people like you who will not let their talent get submerged in the daily grind of life. Best wishes to you. May your tribe increase.
