Congratulations!!! Who else deserves it more than Smt. Gayathri Girish.

The concert picture reminds me of: "Koluvayi Yunnade Kodandapani" in Bhairavi.

The classic award picture reminds me of one more Bhairavi keertana "Upacharamulanu Chekonavayya" and read it as Chekonavamma:-) Especially, the sentence "aparimita nava ratnamulu podigina aparanji gODugu nIkE tagunAMMA". Yes! You deserve it as much as Lord Rama deserves the nava ratna khachita goDugu.

I am so happy for you - HONEST.
