Sree Shanmukhananda Sangeetha Sabha,New Delhi-2/3/09

After a severe bout of throat infection that had lasted for more than ten days ( in fact last week I had to cancel a concert at Mysore and another here in Chennai on Shivarathri due to this) it was yesterday that I sang at Sree Shanmukhananda Sangeetha Sabha,New Delhi as part of their annual tyAgarAja Festival.(At the concert at nAyaki three days back, I had almost recovered, but the throat had not yet become completely normal. I seldom get these bacterial and viral attacks, but when it actually attacks, it is severe:-))
