Greetings of the season.
Hope you are gearing for the Chennai December Music Season 2013.
I regret to inform you that I will be unable to perform at this season's concerts due to matters concerning my family that currently need my attention. I look forward to joining you all again, and creating more music in a few months.
On the positive side, I would like to share with you some good news. The Sangeet Natak Akademi, India's National Academy of Music, Dance and Drama, has conferred on me their Award or Puraskar for the year 2013. This award is recognized as the highest national honor conferred on practicing artists, gurus and scholars. The Akademi honors are conferred by a general council of specialists in different fields of performing arts and representatives from different States and Union territories. I am extremely grateful to be recognized by the general council of this esteemed institution. It provides great motivation to the awardee to expand their artistic expression and extend the boundaries of their field.
Thank you for your long standing support and your keen encouragement, without which this award would not be possible.
Wish you a wonderful December season and a very Happy New Year.
With best regards,
