stop press

It is moments like these that pain me the most, when i discover how far removed i am from my homeland. i discovered just today an occurring of almost 2 months ago ,,, a cause for deep sorrow. semmangudi srinivasa iyer has passed away ,,, despite me being, a not above average listener and enthusiast, the news came as a blow ... he was the grand old man, the 'pitamaha' of carnatic music. the great man has left a void that i am sure is going to be difficult to fill. i would just like to redirect readers to these links as i am sure they have done a greater justice to him than i can hope of doing.
