AlochanaamR^itaMCompassionIt is also the divine
compassion that smites down the strong tyrant and the confident
oppressor, not in wrath and with
hatred, - for these are not the high divine qualities; the wrath of God against the sinner, God's
hatred of the wicked are the fables of half-enlightened creeds,
as much a fable as the eternal torture of the Hells they have invented,
- but, as the Indian spirituality clearly saw, with as much love and compassion for the
strong Titan erring by his strength and slain for his sins as for the sufferer and the oppressed
who have to be saved from his violence and injustice.
One of my cherished goals for putting up this website is to collect and make
available online some of those old (pre-1975) concerts by stalwarts which are so
precious and rare to obtain. They are all locked up in the private music
collections of a few individuals, who are not willing to share them with others
for fear of loss.
That's precisely where the Internet helps, isn't it, to house music in an
indestructible but widely shareable form?
Hence I request rasikas to come forward and share with me copies of those
rare concerts so I can put them online to give everybody an oppurtunity to share
the sangItAmR^itaM ! You'll be duly recognized on the website for your
contribution. And rest assured that it will not be used for profit.
For starters, I am looking for the following:
pre-1970 concerts by M. Balamurali Krishna
pre-1975 concerts by Vinjamuri Varadaraja Iyengar, M.D.Ramanathan, GNB,
Oleti, Dwaram Venkataswamy Naidu (violin), or their gurus.
