  1. On an enforced leave at present, I am enjoying the opportunity this has given me to read A Southern Music. Excellent work, irrespective of whether one sees the musical world the same as Krishna. There is no doubt that a well-written work on carnatic music by an artist of this calibre was longed for, and this does the job beautifully well. I am not a professional musician. I am a scientist, but sing my interpretation of carnatic music on a regular basis – not as a performer but for my sake. One thing I can attest for. If I do sing a deep alapana and then a grand composition, I certainly do not have anything left in me to do any of the other aspects of man dharma. It may only be a reflection of my rather unenviable physical fitness, but I do see the point of an artist not conforming to a standardised format. To what extent his works from a strictly performing art perspective is debatable but Kristen a has boldly opened the paper for discussion and we will see where it goes.

  2. The earth does not merely hold his body, but it gladdens his mind; for its contact is more than a physical contact- it is a living presence. When a man does not realise his kinship with the world, he lives in a prison-house whose walls are alien to him. When he meets the eternal spirit in all objects then is he emancipated, for then he discovers the fullest significance of the world into which he is born. Then he finds himself in Perfect TRUTH and his harmony with the all is established. . .
