AlochanaamR^itaMThe Morality of Boycott
A certain class of minds
shrink from aggressiveness as if it were a sin. Their
temperament forbids them
to feel the delight of battle and they look on what they cannot
something monstrous and sinful... To ask masses of mankind to act as
rise to the height of divine love and practise it in relation to their
adversaries or oppressors is to ignore human nature...Hinduism recognizes
human nature and makes no such impossible demand. To impose on politics the Brahminical
duty of saintly sufferance, is to preach varNasankara, and to

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

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.
