After 17 months!

Former President Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam presenting me the Sangeet Natak Akademi award 

Not taking 'NO' for an answer Jaya TV wants atleast 20 to 30 minutes (initially requested a one-hour recital and agreed to reduce the timing on my insistence) of my recital to be telecast on Ayudha Pooja. The first touch of strings through my gloved fingers, after a gap of 17 months triggered a raw, shooting pain........ as usual God will sail me through my recording which is to be on 20th, coming Saturday, LESS THAN 5 DAYS!! I must say I have some guts for having accepted to perform with practically no time to reacquaint myself with the veena!! God within will hold my hand as always..........
