Here is Sivamani playing the… well, … suitcase! The original which is better in quality is enormous in size and hence this edited version (low quality) is all that I can upload and share. Hope you enjoy it. There is more to come from this festival. Watch this space.
The Bharatanatyam dance performance by a team (I didn’t record the name) was very good. This group had used a contemporary score for their performance and I thought it was very well choreographed. Of course, I couldn’t notice the details as I was standing way behind (hence the poor quality of the photograph) but they were very good on stage. I have invariably seen Bharatanatyam performed to traditional pieces but this was a bit of a fusion though the dance steps remained standard Bharatanatyam. Quite enjoyed their performance.
I doubt if there is any sense in uploading all the pictures I took. I would only end up draining my bandwidth kitty. Here is a collage for the curious! (click on it for the full image)

Dear M,>Believe it or not I was just having lunch and thinking about you and how long it has been since I came over or you, here. I was wondering whether your kids still go on bicycles and was planning to come to my comp and ask you that when I see your comment!! 😀>The whole performance was good and all the artists including Sivamani did a great job! The food was bad, though (mostly non-veg).
How amazing that people can connect like this across the globe.. the world sure seems a smaller place today than it did when I was a kid!!>>thats sad about the food.. good food and good music make a very satisfying combo! add to that good company and thats soone pe suhaga!>>Kids are no longer kids I realise. They are busy with school, preoccupied with adolesence, engaged with friends and I think thats good (atleast normal)..>>we were in India for two short weeks and for me its like trying to live all my life in that time. Kids too had a great time.>>Hope you are doing well..>>TC
The concept is a worthwhile effort indeed, with a wonderful amalgamation of all that is of ‘Tamizh’ life, culture and cuisine.>>Glad to know that there was so much to experience and little to complain about!
Dear M,> I agree. I wish kids could stay as kids rather than grow into adults…>>Dear P,>🙂
