KarunaN has always been a non-believer - not surprising that he thinks himself to be "brilliant" either - he is great at Tamil but that's all, I think.

Talking of Utsava songs -- would you have access to any of the brilliant spiritual singing of krithis by Udayalur Kalyanaraman - his videos are on youtube - including Divyanama Radha Kalyanam utsavam (many parts)conducted at Alangudi, near Kumbakonam - Udayalur is unique, humble and just top notch.

When i was young [1959] my father bought a large valve radio and we used to listen the program' Bhakthi Ranjani" on AIR Vijayawada. We listened to among other bakthi socked group singig, these Uthsava Sampradaa Kritis too.My mother used to tell us the meaning of these songs. You have give me the opportunities to recollect those beautiful days.
