By God's grace, I have been given the privilege of representing the nation in the "Year of India in Russia 2009",organized by the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR),Delhi.

I am leaving tonight for Moscow where we are performing tomorrow and we have another concert at Kazan on the 20th of May.

The other groups performing in this "Festival of India" are : a tALavAdhya group from Hyderabad and a Hindustani sitar recital.

Dear Mrs. Girish,

It has indeed been awhile posting on your blog. Coincidentally today I thought of seeing it and read this great post you have put up.

Congratulations for your concerts in Russia. I pray for your continued success in Carnatic Music.

Shall surely convey this great news to all.

With Sincere Regards.
