anyone thinks that we are merely intellectual beings, he is not a
Hindu. Hinduism leaves the glorification of intellectuality to
who have never seen God. When we first received a European
education, we allowed ourselves to
be misled by the light of science. Science
is a light within a limited
room, not the sun which illumines the world.
is in the heart where God resides. He works through the brain, but the
brain is only one of His instruments. Whatever
the brain may plan, the
heart knows first and whoever can go beyond the brain to the heart,
will hear the voice of the Eternal.
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.
