Margazhi Maha Utsavam in Indira Nagar, Adyar

The 15 year legacy of Margazhi Maha Utsavam put together by Maximum Media began this year's series at Hamsadhwani, Youth Hostel, Indira Nagar, Adyar today.

Mrs. Meena Muthiah, the Kumara Rani of Chettinad inaugurated the festival. Rasikas began taking their seats as Tiruvavaduthurai SNR Krishnamurthy along with accompanists presented the Mangala Isai. The steady flow of audience made it houseful when T.M. Krishna was on stage.

The first day hiccups did show up as the audio was low and couldn't reach those in the back rows. Many seniors braved the chill weather in Chennai since last weekend. The sides are closed with Shamiana and the hall is not fully closed or air-conditioned. Still, this venue is a boon to those living in the neighbouhood of Adyar and beyond till the colonies in ECR, as most of the concert venues are around either Mylapore or T.  Nagar.

Here are some pictures of the scene at the Margazhi Maha Utsavam on the inaugural day.
