Dear Gayathri Ji,
An unsual blog from a vidhushi. Very interesting.

Dear Madam,

A humble request. May we get your concert schedule regularly in this blog, if already not available elsewhere?

I am not from south India, but do visit Hyderabad/Bangalore occasionally. I'll feel myself blessed if I can attend your concert(s) during my tours.

I hope I didn't ask too much...

With kind regards
