AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM India's real mission People care nothing about the spiritual basis of life which is India's real mission and the only possible source of her greatness, or give it only a slight, secondary or incidental value, a something that has to be stuck on as a sentiment or a bit of colouring matter. Our whole principle is different.

A plea to rasikas

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:

I am especially looking for any clear and well-pronounced renditions of rare tyAgarAja kR^itis.

I am NOT interested in hosting contemporary artists' works on my website as there are umpteen other sites for that (e.g., musicindiaonline.com).

If you have anything interesting, please email to sai@cs.utah.edu .

Transfer methods

You can send your collection to me in several ways: I'll put them on my website for everybody's benefit soon after receiving them.
