The Chennai Sangamam

A weird sense of happiness and belonging sets in each time I go back to the city I grew up in and I just can't stop loving every little thing about it. I have been away for a few years and chanced upon the Sangamam this last time I was visiting.

Scheduled during the harvest season, for the period January 10th-16th, 2010 this open festival is set in parks, streets and beaches. I did not catch a glimpse of Sivamani(not sure if he did perform this year) nor did I get to drink the Jil Jigar Dhanda(a Madurai speciality) but I did hog on Goli Bajje(Mysore Bonda) and witnessed D.K.Pattamal's grandaughter Nityasree perform at The Nageshwararao Park

A much needed break with a classical touch and feel that reminded you of your roots(where you come from and belong). What a rich heritage!

The author of has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: What you don't know you don't know will always dwarf what you know, but so will what you don't know you know. Thanks for the info.
