    Illness stilled one of the greatest singing voices of the world a while ago. May our Kannada guru’s end be peaceful. “Sada namma hrudayadalli vaasa maado Bhimanna.”

    I’m going nostalgic on the one and only concert of the great master I attended at Chowdaiah Smaaraka Bhavana about 5-6 years ago(shelled out a princely amout,unaffordable by my standards those days, just to catch a glimpse of the great Guru).Hadn’t attended any Hindustani concert before given my bias towards karnataka shyli.The two hour rendering(accompanied on vocal by Shriniwas Joshi) was mesmerizing and transported me to a different world,I must confess.His rendering of a couple of Daasara PadagaLu including the immortal kruthi – Bhagyada Lakshmi Baaramma,was an unforgettable experience.Saw many prostrate( Saashtanga Namaskaara) at his feet after the concert.

    Here’s wishing the great master speedy recovery- Karunaadu haagu Bharathada nija rathna sheeghra guNamukharaagali, aa bhagavantha aarogya, aayushya karuNisali.

    End is imminent for everyone. But my prayer is God may not cause any sort of pain to our Bharata Ratna, whenever this great soul has to join him. He is an invaluable jewel of our country. Dhanyaru naavu, avara naada sudheyannu anubhavisuttiddeve.
