AlochanaamR^itaMNeed a new GangaavataraNaWe must go back to the one thing needful, take up again Christ's
gospel of the
purity and perfection of mankind, Mahomed's gospel of perfect submission,
self-surrender and servitude to God, Chaitanya's gospel of the perfect love and
joy of God in man, Ramakrishna's gospel of the unity of all religions and the
divinity of God in man, and, gathering all these streams into one mighty river,
one purifying and redeeming Ganges, pour it over the death-in-life of a
materialistic humanity as Bhagirath led down the Ganges and flooded with it the
ashes of his fathers, so that they may be a resurrection of the soul in mankind
and the Satyayuga for a while return to the world.
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.
