Ah! Looking at the list of the songs makes me feel that I missed the Music Academy concert despite having attended 5 concerts of yours this season:-)

I wonder how you were able to accommodate so many compositions!!! In contrast, the joke that was running at the Music Academy this year with "most" other artists was - 3 to 4 compositions + RTP + Tillana is all it takes to make a concert these days! No need to take a note book. And add the regular noise pollution in the name of Vidwat pradarshana. As somebody, who inaugurated the Music Academy Music festival this year, said there is lot of fast paced music and the vilamba kala sangeetam is missing just like the fast paced T-20 in Cricket.
