The Season begins with Bhavan

As in the past, the December music season begins early in November with Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's annual cultural festival today.

And as ever, the hall is packed and the rasikas sit tight through the award presentation and the performance that follows.

Today, Vishakha Hari, popular Harikatha exponent and Gayathri Venkataraghavan, one of the much-loved musician by the rasikas received the P. Obul Reddy and P. Gnanambal Memorial Life Time Achievement Awards.

What followed for was an emotional presentation of stories of Krishna with melodious songs by various composers by Vishakha Hari in her own inimitable style.

Here are a few photos from Day 1 of the 'season' from Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in Mylapore.
