Travel Blog – Why not?

We as a family have always travelled as long as I can remember. The days of travelling with young kids, pre-teens and teen years during their school vacations was always interesting to say the least – a mixed of bag of experience depending on the time of the year, mood of the person(s), location etc etc but at the end of it, it was always an enjoyable experience.

Now with the children on their own and at college, my wife and I have gotten to travelling on a frequent basis – weekend trips, short trips etc. And with this digital age of pictures and videos that are the fingertips, it is only natural that there is this urge to start sharing the experiences (that some of the information gets shared on facebook does not faze me ;-)).

In other words, I will join the bandwagon of people blogging their travel experiences, but without any changes to my music related posts.


Updates to Balamurali Krishna Page

The passing of Sri MBK was a great loss to the carnatic for sure.

He lived a long, active life and continued to perform well into his 80’s, and thus continued to provide the music he could for a long time and that is something to be grateful for.

I had started on pulling together his recordings, checking for duplicates and checking for quality/amplitude etc about a month ago with the intent to update the page and the news of his passing came as a rude shock. Finally I got my act together and got the page updated with all the recordings that I possess and that I am able share. While there are lots of recordings of his music on the internet,  being able to provide access to a wholesome set of recordings on a single page gives me a lot of satisfaction.

I hope you enjoy the recordings I have posted.
