The month of November has been a very busy one till now. I was out of station and without net access for most part of this month. Add to it, there was some problem with the computer at home that thankfully got resolved yesterday. Lots of blog posts to be read and written and quite a few mails awaiting my reply!
I went to an excellent concert of Sanjay last Sunday. If at all someone noticed, I never did write after my last post on Sanjay’s concert about whose concert I went to next. Well, I went to two concerts of T.M.Krishna in the time span between that concert and last Sunday.
Managed to read one and a half books –a non-fiction (Sriram V’s ‘Carnatic Summer’ – it reaffirmed my belief that it is better to not know much about the personal life of some celebrities 😛 ) and a fiction (Michael Crichton’s ‘Congo’).
Had a good time during the two trips, visited some old temples whose architecture and attention to details given to the idols left me amazed as always.
Have started liking the songs valayapatti, ponmagaL remix and maduraikku a lot 😀 , watched two just-another-interview with A R Rahman on TV.
Tried in vain to watch Chennai 28 (decided within 10 minutes into the movie that it isn’t the kind of movie that would appeal to me), finally managed to watch the movie Gilli (am watching a Vijay movie after a long time) fully after having watched the first half twice a couple of years back.
Tried out the new range of almond/coffee/raisin/honey cookies from Brittania under the name ‘Pure Magic’ and found it to be just ok.
Started planning for the December Music Season drawing up a list of the concerts I am planning to attend. 🙂 I couldn’t get the ticket for tomorrow Ghazalbandhi by Mandolin Srinivas and Hariharan, thanks to my not trying to book the ticket earlier. 🙁 But I got the ticket for the concert, Take Four – Trilok Gurtu, Vikku Vinayakram, Guitar Prasanna & Selvaganesh, on Sunday. The next couple of months are going to be very busy ones where Carnatic music will take precedence over everything else. Being in Chennai, if this is not the time to enjoy the divine Carnatic music, then what else is? 🙂
How has your November been till now? 😉
