I reached during the kEdAram krithi.  Kapi and Mukhari alapana were quite detailed, but she did not go for neraval or swara singing for either of them.  Bantureeti followed by some quickfire swara before the main.  Poorvikalyani was taken for the main piece of the day and she had an interesting krithi selection for main. Main and Taniavartanam was over by 8:55-9:00 and there was no neraval done for any other krithis. Hence, there was a possibility for an RTP. However, the felicitation speech and garlanding of artists and some other dignitaries took almost 20 mins ( the usual functions are crips and short, but not yesterday).

By this time she had collected almost 50 odd requests ! So the post main section had been to fulfill these requests.

What was impressive is the selection of krithis and vaggeyakaras. Look at the list , she had krithis selected from 10-12 of them.

    yes, I like it too. I heard her sing it as a main almost 10 years ago and it was ok but was missing something. wonder of how different the effect will be now…

    Thank you for the helps.

    Poorvikalyani was very good. More importantly, to take up ‘parama pAvana rama’ as the main has to be appreciated. I like this krithi.
