It was a heart-warming moment when N. Murali, president of another prestigious organisation The Music Academy presided over the inaugural function and M Krishnamurthy, honorary secretary of Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha was presented with an award for Organiser of the Year.

Now, isn't it time when all these sabhas join hands, host the festival under a common umbrella and take the unique 'season' to an international level?
