I started this series in February 2013 and by God's grace, 9 episodes have been successfully completed.
I am planning to write in detail about this project very soon.

I can only say that it has been a great experience for me doing this project and a wonderful learning process. A lot of careful study and research, meticulous planning for each episode etc etc...this list goes on...

I would like to thank other artists like Smt. Gayathri Venkataraghavan (who attended this episode), Sri. Vijay Siva, Sri.K.R.Ganesh and Malladi Brothers, who have all attended earlier sessions of this project. It is indeed heartening to see one's colleagues on such occasions !

Not to forget the members of the audience who have been attending this series in large numbers, with a lot of enthusiasm and interest.
The next episode of "Myriad Forms of Lord Siva" will be on 24th November 2013 (Sunday) at 5 pm at the same venue.

I will announce the dates for Episodes 11 and 12 very soon. It would be great to see a lot more of my friends and Rasikas in the last 3 episodes, now that the series is nearing its completion.

Hi Gayathri,
All the best for your future episodes. Your hard work, your love for music is an inspiration for all. I fortunately could attend one episode of yours when I was in Chennai, and enjoyed it. Keep up the good work. God bless.

Gayathri Akka,
You have always been wonderful in the way you plan your regular concerts. You have a perfect balance of popular and the not-so-popular krithis making your concerts both a learning and an entertaining experience. But this particular project of yours is simply mind blowing. You have introduced us to myriad forms of Siva and also to myriad wonderful gems of compositions highlighting the lyrical beauty that belongs to Carnatic music alone. Your service to music is matchless. I wish I get to attend one of the last episodes. My prayers and best wishes for the rest of the concerts :)
